Skirt Finished

Finished the blue skirt. The fabric isn't taking well to being pleated though... will need to find a way to reinforce the pleat at the base, me thinks.

Wig Styling... Is Hard

So I started styling the wig (a Coscraft 'Charlie' in toffee). My hilarious inexperience at wig-styling is apparent. The front has gone well, with straight-trimmed bangs and little wavey side locks that I'm really pleased with. The ponytail is... trickier. I've got a ponytail clip-on to achieve that high-pony look but getting the rest of the main wig into a ponytail is awkward. It doesn't like sitting in a high-pony so am going for a low-pony that I can hopefully hide into the clip-on hair. Hopefully. I did buy wefts to sew in if required to hide any netting but yeah. Have made a preliminary ponytail which looks ~okay~ but definitely needs neatening up later.

It Begins!

Oh lawd. Doki Doki was just such a gosh darned good game. Wanted to cosplay someone and it seemed most appropriate to pick Monika. The uniforms are all the same anyway, just the wigs are different, I suppose.

Wig has been bought but haven't got round to styling yet. It's such a pretty colour~ Bought a few of the more standard items of clothing (white shirt, orangey v-neck, knee-high tights) but will be making the blazer jacket, hair bow and the skirt. The blazer jacket fabric has been a pain to source cos it's such a weird browny-grey-purpley shade. Ended up going with a sandy brown because after a bazillion fabric samples it just wasn't happening so went for colour-co-ordinating aesthetics.

ANYWAY. Have started the skirt. Coming right off finishing Cardcaptor Sakura's winter uniform, I'm using the same pattern for the pleated skirt so should go without a hitch? (ha famous last words it'll be a distaster)
