Information

This cosplay has given me the most hassle ever! I hope to never make something as difficult ever again. A friend of mine inspired me to cosplay this character and watch the episodes. I watched the anime and absolutely loved it ^^ So here is the cosplay finished.

It took since last year to collect the pieces and make it. I made it once first, but the first demo looked like trash, so I bought different fabric and made it again. My friend Adam West gave me the fabric for the jacket :) As another friend of mine, dean Allen Jones, gave me the ribbon and the cord. As well as the buttons. It was all made by me except the sword and the shorts. I even made the 5 metres of red flanged cord while watching Eurovision! The jacket is fully lined, and with real button holes. The hardest bit was the lining, making sure the rest of the coat sat right. I guess that's all I can say :)

Well, actually...My favorite part out of the whole outfit? The hotpants...Definitely the hotpants *does a serious face*

You make such a lovely Utena! I bet you're so pleased at how the jacket came out, it's really gorgeous :) Very sad that I missed this at Expo!

Notorious_Noire posted on 7 January, 2012 - 19:29
Aw bless ya! ^^ I would like to wear this again and again if possible. Or even make the movie version or even attempt the pink rose bride dress she wears in the credits of the first season! X3 I was really happy with it finally. It was soooo comfy to wear too! :)

That's pretty damn amazing. If you need an Akio, I should have mine ready by Kita so that'll be on standby from then.

Notorious_Noire posted on 29 January, 2012 - 15:04
Well if you would like to bring your Akio along I'll bring my Utena ^^ I wasn't sure which cosplays to bring along at the moment. It'll be great to see some other characters from the series ^^

JaeXD posted on 1 February, 2012 - 13:41
That would be pretty awesome of you! I'm wearing it for the ball, sadly I couldn't find a red convertable to whore myself on. I'd love to steal you for a dance if you wore it for that too, or twist my arm into an impromptu photoshoot somewhere ;D

Notorious_Noire posted on 2 February, 2012 - 20:22
Oh my God *laughs so hard!* Whore yourself on a red convertable X'''D Although seeing that gorgeous man on that red convertable was utter yummage! >3 That would seriously be awesome :) I'll bring it for the ball at least then, if you're sure ^^ Either way, you got yourself a Utena! ;D

Seeing this live at Kitacon was simply amazing ^_^ so lush! Probably one of the Best Utena's I saw

Notorious_Noire posted on 19 April, 2012 - 18:33
Hehe thank you hunni! I plan to do the movie version fairly soon. With the addition of more skin coloured tights XD

The first print

So today, now that Christmas and the new year have passed, I've finally had chance to pick up my first print from Myco Studio. I don't have a scanner to post the picture on many major cosplay websites. So I'm gonna leave it until I get the photos on disk, which will be ready tomorrow ^^ I'm really excited! :) I may use them to enter that new cosplay website. Just maybe ^^;;

Booked photoshoot ^^

I have booked a photoshoot on Wedesday to get some professional photos of this cosplay. I would be happier to have some more photos of this cosplay in a studio. It would give me a chance to show the rest of the cosplay seeing as I only got photos of the top half of the outfit X'D Also it would be a good experiance seeing as I may start using the studio more often in the future. Trust that the session goes well ^^
