Costume Information

Cost : £10.49

All my costumes for AyaCon 09 are either heavy or uncomfortable so I needed something simple and light.

School Rumble is my favourite Manga which lies in the comedy genre and Tenma is a character who I always wanted to cosplay! she is always getting the wrong facts & sometimes airheaded but at the same time I love her character because she is so funny. School Rumble cosplays are fairly rare infact I only ever seen 1 Tenma cosplayer & 2 Harima's in the UK, so it will be nice to do this cosplay.

This will be a nice break from my Romeo x Juliet cosplays and will definitely be for AyaCon. I don't need a wig, plus I already own the shoes, socks, white shirt and ribbon, so whats left is the skirt, hair elastics and beige jacket.

Complete! (Posted 28th June 2009)

Costume was completed yesterday night, but I was too lazy to get on my comp to write my journey as you can imagine that I fell asleep. I eventually decided to make the beige jacket myself because the quotes from comissioners were ridiculously high! the cheapest quote was £40 and the highest was £116 which excludes shipping. Damn! those comissioners making so much profit with labour for a simple jacket. Anyways I brought 2m of beige cotton from Fancy Silk stores @ £4.99 per metre and it took approximtely 2 days to complete.

Costume is ready for AyaCon! I have enough spare fabric to make the summer uniform, so if I have the time I'll probably make it because I predict Aya will be a very hot summer Con and the winter school uniform felt so hot.

Random fact ~ This is my cheapest cosplay which costs £10.49 in total!

Almost there (without jacket) (Posted 30th May 2009)

Costume is almost complete expect I'm missing the beige jacket which is the most important part of the costume. If I can find someone to comission it for me at a fair price, then I may end up buying it otherwise I'll be staying up until 5am sewing! it does not take long to make the jacket however I'm bearing in mind that I still have a lot of work on my Sakura costume.

My pigtails are not accurate, but there is NO way I'm cutting my hair OR getting a wig for a simple costume which would only be worn once or twice. Infact my hair looks more like Ami Koshimizu (Tenma's actress) in the School Rumble musical.

Ebaying (Posted 20th May 2009)

I wanted to concentrate on my other AyaCon costumes, so I went on Ebay to buy parts of the costume. Today I won a pleated red skirt and red hair elastics. It was my 3rd attempt to bid on a suitble red pleated skirt though the skirt I won is not 100% accurate, in fact it looks more like the skirt in the School Rumble musicals. All thats left is the beige jacket which hopefully I will start soon otherwise I may end up getting it comissioned to save time on my other cosplays.

So far I spent £6.50 on the costume and I hope it does not go above £15 because I'm a cheap skate.
