Costume Information

Cost : £70

NGE was one of those animes i initially thought i was not going to like, but i ended up adoring it! i really liked mari's character and as my friend was planning asuka and so she seemed the obvious choice! and seeing as i have neither the confidence nor the body for a plugsuit, i decided on her school uniform.

i'm planning on making all aspects of the uniform i can as i really want to improve my sewing skills. it is something that should not be out of my skill level, but still provides me with challenges and teaches me new skills.

been forever since i last cut a wig (Posted 24th July 2013)

scary stuff. still no idea how i'm going to stop the wefts at the back showing

wig arrived! (Posted 23rd July 2013)

it is literally the perfect colour for how i imagine her hair! the wig came with a skin top which i wasn't expecting, but it actually worked out pretty well especially seeing as i needed a middle part.

need to cut the fringe and front bits in and then find a way to cover the wefts at the back as they show when the fibres are pulled into the ponytails

okay so this skirt has been the first "real" item of clothing i have ever made and i am pretty damn proud! the colour are more vibrant irl though

i've finished the interface thingies, just need to attach them to my hairband and the tie is also finished. so yeah, progressing along nicely

these colours are so pretty and so close to what i need. finding a good check proved difficult, but i'm so pleased with this!
