Description
My first cosplay, which I made for my first ever anime con!

The shirt came from H&M and I then modified it.
The skirt came from a charity shop (Sue Ryder Care), and was modified as well.
I used three different ribbons from a local craft shop, and two buttons that I already had on the breast pockets.
The wig came from http://www.coscraft.co.uk/ and was around £25.00. I trimmed it a bit and styled it with some hair gel, including making the ahoge (which I ended up slipping a paper clip on so that it dried sticking up!)
I already had the shoes.
The tights are just the sort I wear all the time and come from Monsoon/Accessorise.
My tail was actually a modified pink dog lead which I bought in the local pet shop! I cut it to size and drew black triangles on it with a permanent marker.

I also bought nail varnish and some makeup from Boots.

I did use a bit of artistic license, for example I decided I wasn't confident (or warm-blooded) enough to wear hold-ups, and I adapted the ribbon on the collar a bit so that it was easier to sew. I also gave up on the tabs on the sleeves, as they were being a pain to sew and I didn't get any appropriate buttons in time for the con (although I might add them later).

I also had to go without a headset - I did try to make one out of cardboard and an Alice band, but it fell to pieces at the las minute! I think it would be best if I somehow got my hands on a broken/disused one, although I'm not sure how to go about that...

I learnt a few things from making this cosplay and wearing it to DOJ Con - crucially, I need to use hairpins with the wig - it kept slipping back so I was constantly having to go into the ladies' toilet and fix it!

I don't believe in one-time cosplays and I hope to wear this again - it was very comfortable and I found Teto extremely fun to bring to life!
