Ishida Uryuu (Rukia's Rescue plot) - Bleach


London MCM Expo October 2007

Just how many people who liked my costume was a big award :P




My first hand made costume! I think it turned out alright, but there are a lot of things I would do differently in hindsight, mostly to do with the bow and my hair :P I bought some white jeans for the underneath, then made the tunic and cape from scratch, which took a bit of head-scratching, but I got there in the end. The bow was a bamboo stick base, and then built up with cardboard, newspaper and paper mache. It turned out pretty good, but I think I could have given it a better finish. And the elastic was a last minute idea that wasn't so good in the end :P Annd it got squished a lot on the train and by random doors. But it was wonderful to wear because I was the only Ishida at the Expo (so far as I could tell) so I could barely take five steps without someone wanting my picture, and it was great to be part of a big Bleach group. Definitely more fun when you can be in a group of people =D
