|Time Taken :||16 hours|
|Kuro has such an awesome character design, and is incredibly loveable =3|
This costume has been a rollercoaster of thrills, spills and stress, but it was worth every moment of it! The costume wasn't very widely recognised when I wore it, but with this particular outfit, I didn't think it really mattered ^^
The bulk of the costume was made in the space of a week, as a last minute rush for Kita. The outfit itself was made in 2 days, the coffin in a week by my wonderful boyfriend Death May Die. This costume also includes my first attempt at making a plushie! Sen was completely handmade from felt, and he was a great accessory to my costume - his number one fan is Efia! I'm so happy with the way this turned out, and really hope to be wearing it again sometime in the future - all dependent on my rather large prop of course!

So it's five days 'til Kitacon. Is this costume complete? No way! I wouldn't want to ruin the traditional last minute con rush, would I now? XD
Alex is working hard on the coffin, and it's looking great so far. Hopefully I can get some progress shots up soon. In terms of the costume itself, the coat's still in fabric-form and there is no hat to speak of. I managed to find myself some good shoes though (that cost me £10 rather than the £80 I initially had my eye on!), and my wig's cut and ready for action. The most I've actually done so far is spent time cutting out the template for a Sen plushie =3
So, I have four days remaining. 3 of which I'm at work. Wow, can anybody say 'stress'?
