Haru Yoshioka
The Cat Returns

Cosplayer: Heorot

Variant: Uniform, pre-Cat Bureau visit

Status: Planned

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

16th June 2013: Ribbon necktie Super duper thrifty of me, this was from an old-ish shoe boutique bag! Its about half a metre and a much more accurate red than this, its the app I took this pic on that makes it this colour

20th July 2012: Possible fabric find Think I can unpick my mums old work uniform for Haru's waistcoat+skirt! (she's a ward nurse but is moving into the community soon and therefore getting new threads). Though she got this particular dress from a charity shop for £1 0_o Anywho, it's pretty thick material and I like how it seems to be quite light blue in bright conditions and dark in low light, similar to how it appears in the film. Now to find the waistcoat pattern madre retrieved from her textile days and get started...

Also hopefully gonna get a short-sleeved shirt from Asda/Tesco soon, & I found a cute tutorial for a DIY cookie cutter that I want to try out for the fish biscuits ^-^ Still on the search for a pair of those damned penny loafers...

The Cat Returns was the first Studio Ghibli film that I saw and it encouraged me to go and watch the rest of them. It would be great to see a ‘Cat Returns’ group at the Expo
