Costume Information

Cost : 30 mabye?

Well Ranma is officially my favourite Anime :) it has everything and has always been the anime I could watch any time of the year! The characters are rich and colourful and the story just one of those great tales!

Well regardless of anything im gonna do Ranma! it was either that or Kuno but I dont think I can get the Hakama in time. Im gonna use my own hair with a clip on braid I think unless a wig presents itself in time. The uniform im actually modifying an actual red kung fu uniform which I will be fabric painting the chest peices Gold and adding the belt and white cuffs. The trousers will be taken in up to the heel and elastic added :)

Im very happy to be doing this and hope it looks OK XD

Let me know what you think?
