Haru Yoshioka (Uniform, pre-Cat Bureau visit) - The Cat Returns





"Mum...can cats talk?"

"Well, let's see.....what!?"

If you find yourself troubled by something mysterious, or a problem that's hard to solve, there's a place you can go. A place where...

The Cat Returns is one of my favourite films; I always put it (or Spirited Away) on whenever I feel sad or stressed. Perhaps it is because I can relate so much to Haru- oversleeping, the awkwardness of turning up late to class, crushing on dudes outta my league...oh, and I LOVE cats!

I therefore have to cosplay Haru. And weild a lacrosse stick!

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

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

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...
