11th September 2011: Shirt and tie Today I went out and bought a couple of things for Melfina!
I hate making collars, so to save myself the trouble I bought a cheap white formal shirt from Asda. I don't plan to enter this costume in any masquerades or competitions or anything, and also, if I made the shirt from scratch, I'd probably end up spending more money on the fabric for it than I did just buying one.
I also bought a blue tie! :) My dad has tons of ties but doesn't seem to have a plain blue one in the right shade, so I bought one from Matalan. I then went to Asda afterwards (to buy the shirt) and they had plain blue ties there that I liked better than the one I'd just bought... D: But oh well! At least I have one now.
