Costume Information

He wants to do a Persona 4 group and I decided to muscle in on it. I love the game (from what I've played), the character designs are awesome, what could go wrong ^^

This has been suprisingly difficult to do, especially all the embroidery! I'm happy with how it's turned out though. It's a really comfortable costume so I imagine this will be reworn a fair few times ^^

The wig is probably both my favourite and least favourite part of this XD It's a beautiful beautiful wig and is fabulous, but alas it does not like being styled at all. It looks so messy at the back (mostly due to my inability to style hair) but from the front it looks okay. So no photos of the back!

I made a Teddie plush to go with this, but he is in the 'Plushies' costume on here.

Oooh!! You're doing this for October Expo?? If you're doing it for Sunday, then you should totally come along for P4 group fun! (I should be organising another big P4 group for then~)
But yes, certainly! Don't know what I can help in but I'd be more than happy to share tips and stuff at Aya, looking forward to seeing you again :)

Wiggity Wig (Posted 30th September 2011)

I finally got round to styling the wig. The bunches are nowhere near high enough so I may redo it, but the back would probably look even worse than it already does (there are big gaps where you can see the wig cap >.< I have a dark brown wig cap now to make it look a little better but still...)

Oh and check out my awesome pink glasses. The are awesome and pink.

Shirt 3 (Posted 30th September 2011)

Delayed journal is delayed.
But I finished the embroidery! The school emblem looks a bit crap but I've never embroidered anything like it before so I don't think I did too badly.
Have a crappy photo of the collar and emblem, with the camera strap in the way

Shirt 2 (Posted 7th September 2011)

After about 7.5 hours total, I have embroidered all of the stitching detail on the shirt. Front and back.
The sleeves cocked up a little but I've tried fixing them to little/no vast improvement so I may just leave it.

Shirt (Posted 4th September 2011)

I caved and bought a simple back top for editing.
I've been sewing white dotted lines for the past 3 hours and I still have loads to do!
Will be doing the collar and School badge another day I think

Skirt finished (Posted 24th August 2011)

Got a zip and stuff for this today, and proceeded to complete the skirt.
I'm so proud of it, I've finally got the hang of pleating (with a lot of help from mum)
It's a bit short for my liking so I shall make a pair of legging shorts to go underneath. I'm also wearing it over jeans here so the fit is a bit funny

Skirt and wig (Posted 16th August 2011)

Wig arrived today and it is LOVELY! It looks brown until you get in in sunlight, and then it has all these reddish tints in it <3
The skirt is almost done! Finally got the hang of pleating after a patient lesson from mum XD Just hemming and ironing the pleats to go!
Will upload pictures after Ayacon/when things are finished~

Shoes 2 (Posted 13th August 2011)

All done, arrived yesterday XD Thank you again to Ino for putting me onto these!

They're really comfy, so I'm going to enjoy wearing this costume (footwise anyway XD)

Shoes (Posted 10th August 2011)

Have been ordered, with many thanks to Ino for linking me to a really nice and cheap pair!
FOund my squeezy tube of white fabric paint, ready to edit them when they arrive XD
Still not sure on how to do the shirt... may have a look at patterns next time I go to the fabric shop~

Making a start (Posted 2nd August 2011)

Made the necktie and started working on the skirt.
Trying to find some shoes but no look finding any for less than £15. I may have a look at school shoes as I do have tiny feet (My Alice shoes are kids shoes...)

Fabric (Posted 30th June 2011)

I found some awesome snaggletooth fabric today, at less than £2 a metre, so I snapped it up 8D
