|Recently got round to watching Steins;Gate due to looking around for anime to watch every now and again, in which I found it to be a great anime. I kept insisting to my boyfriend, Luke, to watch it and now he absolutely loves it, so he asked me if I was up for cosplay Makise Kurisu with him being Okabe Rintarou (Hououin Kyouma). I was up for it as I had similar thoughts.|
So I chose to do the lab coat version as I didn't want to buy her regular jacket from a cosplay site/ebay, nor do I feel up to even trying to make it, whilst a labcoat would be a lot easier to make. I'm making his labcoat as well, so long as the pattern arrives within good time (grrr out of print Butterick pattern).
If I had realised I was going to cosplay her sooner, I would have gotten suitable green slippers, but I'm going to have to either get some garden slip on shoes or just wear some general sturdy black boots, due to wanting to wear this at Tokonatsu.
Also, I already love Dr Pepper but I had to get Luke to drink some, as a long while ago he wasn't keen on it, but luckily now he quite likes it, so he can live up to the role of Hououin Kyouma!
I hope in future to make the Future gadget #12 'Darling no Baka' and Okabe's cell phone (just a prop, nothing functional). Though Luke tried asking if I could make a jelly banana but I explained that it wouldn't work making it out of actual jelly, at least not for very long, that it would be better to try to make a flexible plastic cast, so it may be something for the future.

Second update (Posted 29th July 2013)
Well I'm almost done with the shirt, with just sorting out the button related parts. I'll upload photos of the making progress once it's done. Though the lab coat sewing pattern has still not arrived. However, with Tokonatsu's status of delaying the event to later this month, I will have more time to work on the lab coats (if the pattern arrives at all -_-).
First progress update (Posted 24th July 2013)
So, currently I have made the tie and added the belt loops to the shorts. I'm going to start making the shirt next. Though I am still waiting for the sewing pattern for the lab coat to arrive, I really hope it arrives by Saturday at the latest so I can get started on making the lab coats for Kurisu and Okabe. I still need to get some tights and shoes, as well as style the wig and paint the belt buckle gold.
