Description
The more colourful anime version of Road Camelot, though I actually prefer her black and white manga version. ^^ Will have photos of that sooooon~.

Road is such a great character to cosplay as. So sly! XD She's actually my first female cosplay too. o_0

It was fortunate for me that I already owned a good percentage of the clothing items needed, such as shirt, EGL shoes, and red ribbon. The skirt was easy to find but the socks were suprisingly difficult. Purple and fuschia socks, eyaaah!! XD The costume was mostly a buy-and-assemble job. Pretty damned easy. The wig was the hardest part though. I bought it as an electric blue chepao quality 'punk' wig that looked just AWFUL, like a fuzzy hedgehog or something, and had gaps everywhere. So I made it look a LITTLE less than awful by style it into chunky spike with PVA glue and a ton of hairspray, then spray painted it dark blue for good measure. Oh, that's after I hand crafted some sideburns and had sewn them onto the sides, that is. How could I foregt the hardest part? o_0;; Anyway, it's not great but for my very first totally custom wig-job I'm rather proud. ^_^V

The umbrella was spotted on ebay. It was just PERFECT for Rero. X3 And of course Reros' head is made from parachute material to keep him waterproof. ^_<

EDIT; Manga version (Black and White) is now complete and was worn for Halloween. Will hopefully find some full-body shots to use here. ^^V

You were a really great Road!

I think I'll be bringing Debit to Ame, but I'm not sure if there'll be any other Noah cosplayers.
