Costume Information

YEP. SHES P.BAD ASS. I like how despite her rather melancholic outlook she's naturally calm and can be the voice of reasoning. Doesn't sugar coat things. And the uniform is pretty swish!
Absolutely love her. I am head over heels for this series/manga. Instantly has hit my top favorite! I'm loving the anime adaption and so glad everyone else is getting into it too!

Worn at:
London MCM may expo 2013 (On my own)

I have a large Shingeki no Kyojin photoshoot arranged with some friends in a few months from now! Everything is almost arranged we're just making sure everyone can get sorted gear wise and colour matching wise! Lot's of support from people in and out of the group with this!

Thank you guys! I really didn't wear it very long as it was a terrible cosplay. Plan on redoing her!

WIP Blades! (Posted 10th July 2013)


:D (Posted 8th July 2013)

:D so far!

more work on the blades (Posted 28th June 2013)

test 01

preview! (Posted 22nd June 2013)

about to upload higher quality mikasa photos!

triggers (Posted 9th June 2013)

made from eva foam currently being coated in Gesso

harness all done (Posted 19th May 2013)

Bah! Got it all done!
I'm really happy with it all. It's all accurate to the designs released and is hopefully strong enough at my thighs (I double layered the leather) To hold the weight of the boxes. Uggghhhh so much work left to do.

so far (Posted 12th May 2013)

-Leg belts need to be brought higher.
-Take in shirt to fit me properly
- get new white trousers as these ones are a little short on the stomach which makes my torso look really long lol
-add the rest of the harneses
-add patches
-dye boots

started on the main part of the harness. (Posted 12th May 2013)

ack! It's a start at least

Harness begins! (Posted 12th May 2013)

made from heavy duty pleather and silver buckles

:D (Posted 11th May 2013)

Got a big portion done! Just a strap here and there to hold it up (for accuracy too) then can move onto the trigger holsters!

back portion! (Posted 10th May 2013)

Got a big chunk of it done today! The back portion (that sits at the lower back) Of the 3d maneuver gear. I'm pretty happy with all this so far :D

jacket is done (- patches) (Posted 9th May 2013)

Ok so I neatened everything up. (That patch isnt the patch i'm using for the pocket, its actually for the sleeve but I was just showing what it'd sorta look like.) Shoulder pads all added and so on. can safely move to the harness now!

ok! Here you go! (Posted 8th May 2013)

The coat isnt 100% done, I have shoulder pads to sew in and bits to finish on the other side as well as the shoulder itself and the patches. The boots need dyeing a darker color and the harness system to make . Lots to do! So excited to cosplay this! I have yet to get around to a makeup test. But my wig arrived a while back from Coscraft anyway, have some progress for now!

templating the gear (Posted 7th May 2013)

all worked out now! cut them out already and now assembling

skirt piece (Posted 7th May 2013)

yes the wrap around the waist is being patterned here but its finished up with sewing now

coat (Posted 7th May 2013)


patches (Posted 7th May 2013)

This is the latest! I got around to the patches, I'm just sewing the black outlines onto the wings then can neaten the rest up. For now this is what I've done. I need to make one more small one for the pocket at the breast. ;O;
