Description
I love Lenalee ^-^ Shes my favourite character next to Lavi and her 2nd Uniform is my favourite from the series.

I wore this to the October 2009 Expo and also took part in the Masquerade as part of a D.Gray-Man Group ^^

The Jacket is made from black pleather and was made by following a Jacket Pattern with wide-sleeves (I made the length slightly longer and changed the collar) The white detailing on the jacket is made from a white material which looks like pleather but is a lot thinner. It was actually glued down with fabric glue as it was too hard to sew (The sewing machine ripped it and hand-sewing made it too holey)

The black shorts I already owned and I bought the boots from ebay ^^
The belt and side-skirt are made from the same fabrics as the jacket. The belt I made just by getting the general shape and cutting it to fit. I used an old belt buckle from a belt I no longer used and then glued down the white. The silver rings are just some metal ones I found and are kept down by little 'belt loops' which i also made from the pleather.

I did also make her knee guards and leg straps but they didn't stay on my legs so didn't wear them in the end T_T Though I will be cosplaying her again ^^

Journal

Boots ^-^ 9/7/09 (Posted 9th July 2009)

So I found some really nice boots on ebay the other day and managed to 'win' them and for a really good price too!

They arrived today in the post and I LOVE THEM! They fit perfectly and look really good i think ^^ Not 100% accurate as Lenalee's boots have a high-heel but i knew for a fact If i bought them with heels they would KILL my feet at expo which was why i opted for these XD They still have a heel tho even if it is only small but ah well XD

I'm going to be making the silver/gray discs that she had on either side of her boots (when she activates level 2 innocence) Im also going to add the black rings she has on the front of them and i want to try get some sort of neon green/blue coloured tape to put on them (I think in the picture its her innocence?) and then lastly do her knee pad things~ Shall update soon XD
