Description
I had an expo coming up reeeeally quickly, as in I found out about it the week before(Exeter Comic Expo 2013) and the cosplay I was working on for another event was nowhere near complete. I needed something I could bash out quickly so chose to do Meg.

Hat and glasses were an ebay find, the rest was more of a pain than I thought. Shockingly I own no blue jeans so I had to go out and buy some, I could only find dark indigo ones though - so I bought them, took them home and then bleached them for over an hour until I got as close to the colour I wanted as possible. I didn't want to leave it any longer for fear of wrecking the denim too much.

The shirt was even more drama, nowhere locally could i find a pink shirt to modify so I just sucked it up and went into local haberdashery to buy fabric. They had no fabric the right colour, so under the shopkeepers advice bought a lighter one and some dye. Dye didn't take at all, time was running out and I ended up having to order online and pay special delivery charges. When it arrived was just a case of patterning and sewing.
