Fuu Hououji (School Uniform) - Magic Knights Rayearth

Information

Turns out my friend Charlene and her friend Elise had been dieing to do a Rayearth group, Umi and Hikaru respectively. So I stepped in as Fuu :D

I made all three of the swords, Umi's is my favourite, might do an Umi cosplay for the sake of being able to wield that sword :D

Liz was our Mokona for our little walk on at retrocon...I mean Minamicon 15 XD

Tis not the most flattering costume and after two gabardine suits I've learned it's probably better to use bi-stretch for the skirts and gabardine for the jacket. Plus the pattern wasn't one I was used to as I need the different kind of collar.

Good fun though and we got recognised by lots of people :D

I also made all the glovelet accessories and all the little resin gems dotted about :D First time using resin this was and they came out really well.

I loved seeing your group at Minami. The Rayearth designs are so eye-catching and you guys did a great job. Those swords looked brilliant!
