Description
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.
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 he now really likes it, so he can live up to the role of Hououin Kyouma!
I've worked on making her jacket, shirt holders and editting some boots into the style she wears. Both the boots and main fabric for the jacket were won through ebay auctions on the same night, I feel so lucky winning them and at really good prices. It has been tricky and it's not perfect, but I think I've done a reasonably good job. I even remembered to add some inside pockets to the jack so I'm not carrying a handbag around. Bought some aviator sunglasses as well though unfortunately they were actually black mirrored not silver mirrored.
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 -_-).
I still need to paint the belt buckle, but of course there's plenty of time for that, also more time for me to look for some cheap green garden shoes, as they would be more durable than getting actual slippers.

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.
