Description
My friend Tsuchinoko has always considered cosplaying as Juliet from the Romeo x Juliet Anime and since then I decided to cosplay with her as Romeo. Juliet is possibly my favourite character from the series, so I wanted to cosplay as Juliet too!

Juliet's Odin costume is my favourite outift, but Tsuchinoko already choose this costume, so I had a choice between Juliet's red crimson whirlwind, armour, red dress or peach dress. To be honest none of these costumes appeal to me, but when I saw Juliet cosplayers in the peach dress all over the net, I thought "pretty" and "must cosplay" Ironically peach is not my colour.

The hardest part of the costume was possibly finding the wig. The colour of Juliet's wig is incredibly hard to describe. I say light brown with some tints of orange, Tsuchinoko says peachy, Bob says pink-ish and another friend says some kind of orange colour, in other words 3 or all 4 of us must be colour blind lol! I looked at other Juliet cosplayers on cosplay.com and the wig colours had a great variation from red to dark-ish brown to light orange, so this proves there is no such perfect colour for Juliet's hair. Me and Tsuchinoko both worked hard together to find a suitably styled wig with a colour which we both like. obviously we wanted to buy the same wig to make our cosplays match. After almost half a year of searching on every site we could possibly find, I finally found a wig which we both love! The only problem was it was from a Japanese site and none of us are fluent in Japanese, however there was an online Japanese business site which can order on my behalf, so that was how I got the wig. There was no way I was going to let that wig go & spend more months or even years searching. The thing which I most desire from the wig is the colour! I love how the wig can look pink, brown, orange, peachy all at the same time, depening on lighting and colour of surroundings.

Thanks everyone for your comments

Glad I got some positive feedback from the sword because it caused so much pain to make.

Beautiful costume! I really like the way the skirt drapes, did you use a petticoat at all?
