Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

2nd April 2012: Trousers + Shoes. Ok so trousers are just your standard elasticated type! Finished now, nothing too complicated making wise thankfully. I just looked at my pajamas for some sort of reference pattern wise.

Shoes are super cheapo boots from Primark :D Covered with red and still in the process of covering the rest in white! After making these boots I just want to make a pair like Goku's instead! XD;

22nd March 2012: Coming along... So the dress just needs some frog clasps at the top, not sure whether to purchase these or try making my own! Maybe I'll go for the latter and see what happens... Also need to shape the bottom part a little and add more red bias. After that it's just the red band that goes around the dress, which I'm thinking I'll make seperate just so I can possibly arrange creases within it myself and sew them in place.

Armwarmer things I'm thinking of padding so they look a little more cartoony. Same for the boots...shoes arent really my speciality though so I'll just see what I can do! XD;

Muuuuum! You have a CI account! :P

The dress is looking fab and I love how you've styled the wig. What fabric did you use?

Gooohan~! <3 <3 -Mothers to death- XD

Thankyou! Dress is made out of blue drill cotton, first bought it for Yunas skirt until I realised her skirt was PURPLE not blue! Doh! I did consider something more silky since its a chinese style dress and all, but after thinking it over I thought matt colours just seem to work a lot better with the nature of the series/way the characters are drawn.... if that makes sense... XD;

I completely agree that the matt fabric is perfect for this. I don't envision Chichi wandering around in a silky dress either. It would be too, well, expensive looking if that makes sense, and not conducive to sparring. Your choice is perfect.

o god this is awesome! You look like you're about to unleash the fury on everything in your progress pic. Agreed re: the matt fabric. Also, reading your costume info, absolutely you need to do a Goku cosplay. HAVE to. It is mandatory nostalgia. Bulma too, no doubt that would look fantastic, but Goku would be, well...you just have to, k? But heck, point made. XD

Thanks so much guys <3 It's true this is a total nostalgia Cosplay. XD

@Birdie The birdie has spoken and so it shall be! XD Ok... stop me if I'm going too far but an image of Ino, yourself and me wearing Veggies classic badman shirt, plus Goku and Piccolo in those TERRIBLE shirts (driving lesson episode XD ) just popped into my head as a great(?!) idea. Lmao.

Ino - 22nd March 2012
Yes Birdie, for nostalgia's sake you are now officially our Mister Piccolo :D

It was great that you already had the fabric for this! Convenient~~
