I'm doing this cosplay for Midlands next year too! ^-^ I doubt mine will be as good as yours though, since it's only my second cosplay. I'm completely obsessed with the manga. I really hope they haven't cancelled volume 3.

I too was considering it for midlands, but I've been attempting to finish this outfit (mainly the coffin) for the last year

6th July 2011


I went to a fabric shop and a certain supermarket where I managed to get a bunch of things needed for cosplays. Nothing exciting for Kuro really, just some black satin to line the waistcoat with. I just hope it's going to look ok as I used different on the back. I may start over... Not sure.

Todays sewings

I sewed the trousers, and the waistcoat. I deffinatly need some more fabric. The waistcoat will be started again as it doesn't sit how I wanted.

26th June 2011


I cut and pinned the trousers and wasitcoat. I need some more fabric to line the waistcoat then I will sew them. I think I'm going to use a shirt I already have instead of making it. Easier.

Cutting of wig..

I attemped to cut the wig....... *hides*

15th February 2011

unstyled wig...

i was looking through my journals on my progress and realised i hadn' posted a pic of my wig.. so there you go. although as Kuro is on HOLD AGAINNNNN (BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!) the wig will not be styled until i can wear her.

10th January 2011


so the person who was making my coffin..... ran away. i then got news i'd be in no fit phsyical state an un able to carry it anyway. Therefore, i am no longer doing kuro for telford. I cried. BUTTTTTTTTTTT look out for the other people who said they will be :D I very much look forward to seeing them!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D Can't Wait!

months later...

I fnally ordered a wig. I'm SO excited to have some time now to really get to work on her. Sen keeps moaning at me to get a move on hehe. We are booked up for midlands so this will give me a time to aim for. I've done a lot in preperation :D

9th February 2010


i'm pulling my hair out (actually it is falling out) over the wig.. As I compromised with the colour for Sen, using the darker blue in the manga for reference. I think I need to match the wig colour with him, but any wigs I have found are either black or too bright.. So I found one that's blue with black ends. I can cut the ends off when styling and if the blue is way too bright I guess I can try to dye it.. the sharpie way, I really don't know...

I have a tie :D I asked my mum "Mum, do you have the tie template we made" "The ties we made, In the blue trays" So.. I found one of the black ties we had made a few years ago. Thanks Xena Productions ;) haha. It has a silky inside, and I can't believe i forgot about them... We made two black ones and ten pink ones for a school play.

My brother in law found some Crepe bandages. Thanks KK. (adding this for my own benefit)

21 January 2010.

Well, the base parts of the hat ... I ran out of card so foam it is. It'll be ok once I get the hot glue/fabrics onto it.

They arrived.. I got some 'Harry Potter' (by Ruby's) glasses in the end. I wasn't happy with the rubbish packaging it came in, and the fact my postman stuffed it through the letter box.. but after a quick bend they are lovely.

3rd January 2010


I&#039;ve worked on a couple of things for the costume (Sen and the rounddd shoes ^ ^), but.. the glasses... should I have black frames or silver frames? I remembered I bought some without lenses for Elfriede (Moon Phase), i never did the cosplay in the end as I decided on Arte instead. Anyway, they have no lenses and are gold. I will look around for some black with lenses I think, if not I will have to paint the ones I have... EDIT: NEVER MIND I KNOW THE ONES I'M GETTING
