|A friend of mine suggested I cosplay Ringo when she bought some of the air gear manga. She has glasses, therefore, AWESOME. I started watching the air gear anime and I'm really getting into it... But I don't really like the outfits she wears. For one, she's not wearing her glasses in her sleeping forest outfit D: So I decided to try her manga cover outfit. The fact that she has brown hair on that and I'm too lazy to buy a pink wig has nothing to do with it... but it does help XD|
Edit 23/04/08: Costume nearly done! I've been drawing up all the logos on her shorts (So... much... paintshop... D:) so all I need to do now is iron them on, make the belt buckle and get me some sticky back plastic or something for the designs on the belt, visor and shoes. Ah, and that weird scarf she has around her head. That could be interesting.
Since we can't get to May Expo anymore, this is being worn to Collectormania MK... which is in less than two weeks. Crap.
Edit 28/04/08: Got some insulation tape and I spent most of Saturday afternoon cutting ridiculously intricate designs in to that. That means the belt, visor and designs on the Air Trecks are done! 8D I've also finished the emblems and printed them onto the transfer paper despite the minor crisis we had when the printer ran out of ink. Crisis averted, though, so I just need to iron them on. I also found some suitable material for the head scarf (and all the things I needed for other cosplays, so this was all in all an awesome shopping trip). Looks like I'll be finished in time! 8D
Edit 30/04/08: Someone has something against me finishing this. I printed the emblems and cut them out and they got water spilled on them so the colours all ran, I printed out some more and the cat sat on my shorts so I had to clean them then we ironed on the first emblem only to realise it was the wrong type of paper. Printed them onto the other printer paper, cut them out, that one didn't work either. We've gotta go buy some of the right stuff tomorrow night D:
