I've only seen it recently and I loved it. I hope to do him for Amecon, so it's provisional at the moment. :-)

Many series like this need more love. This one needs it a lot! For Amecon I hope to have Raye doing one of Himeno's casual outfits. Not sure about Archer, but she said she might do the Ice outfit. ^^'

Let me know if you do, we can grab photos. :-)

I wish I could have done better, but that's the perfectionist in me talking.

To-Do List

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.


Unofficial Debut (Posted 25th July 2012)

The unofficial debut for this costume was the AniMedia East Cosplay Picnic at Chapelfield Gardens (Norwich) on 21st July 2012.

The full debut will be at Amecon 2012.

The finished costume! (Posted 20th July 2012)

I've now finished this outfit. It's taken a lot of fiddly jobs and modifications to get this one done, but done it is and I'm unofficially debuting him at the AniMedia East cosplay picnic, July 21st 2012.

His official debut will be at Amecon 2012.

Top Almost Finished (Posted 19th July 2012)

Well the top is almost done now. Just a finger loop to add on to the end of each sleeve, and the emblem on the front of the top.
It's taken some awkward fiddling with the yellow twill fabric, and my stitching is still what I'd call that of an amateur, but I'm proud of it. ^_^

Top and Flags (Posted 16th July 2012)

The top requires just three more parts to the detailing on the front, and flaps for the groin and backside still need to be sewn together. Almost there now.

Slow and Steady Wins the Race (Posted 6th July 2012)

I have about half of the top's details completed now, and once it's finished I'll be working on the flaps. I've completed one shoulder pad ready to be sewn on to the top this evening, and if all goes as I want it to, I'll have the other done tomorrow. Both then might be sewn on by the end of the day. If there's any motivation time left over, I might tackle the top of the collar.

Collar and Boots (Posted 25th June 2012)

I've done some work on the collar of the top, and so far it's looking good!
The white boots from China also turned up this morning, and they're a perfect it. ^_^

Fabric (Posted 19th June 2012)

I recently bought fabric for the burgundy/wine and golden yellow parts of Hayate's top.

Golden yellow -

Burgundy/Wine -

Boots (Posted 12th June 2012)

It has taken quite some time to consider what boots to buy. I searched and searched and searched for a pair of knee high white boots in the UK that didn't have girly/stiletto heels, and all of them came up in China/Hong Kong/Shanghai. Any others were white wellies. So, I have had to go with a pair from Asia. I had to spend more than I wanted to, but the postage was free, so I guess it's worth it.

Now to wait 11-23 days for them to arrive. At least I have bought them in good time.

First parts have arrived! (Posted 3rd May 2012)

I have bought a wig and a metal (silver) circular hair band that are on their way from China. I also bought a top and a gypsy skirt to modify which arrived today.

I have already unpicked the panels on the skirt so I have the front and back flaps in progress already.
