16th July 2013: The Journey Continues..? So I've decided that after all the effort that went into this, I'd like to show it off! But having stage-fright means Expo masqs are a massive nono, so I'm planning my first solo entry in a cosplay contest at Tokonatsu 2013. Woohoo!? I can handle a couple hundred cool kids in a field, right? ... Right?

Anyway, for Toko I'll hopefully be making a few minor improvements to the dress, as well as having a go at making my first major prop; Rin's guitar. AHAHA. Righty ho. Me, making props? Yeah. Famous last words. How badly wrong can this possibly go?!

8th August 2012: FINISHED THIS HATEFUL DRESS. Been beavering away at this every evening for the past two weeks (aside from Toko) and everything that could have gone wrong did. BUT ITS FINISHED NOW. *dies*.

16th July 2012: Dress Progress So I bought the material for the dress, and have begun construction, huzzah!! Its a bit complicated and hurts my brain a bit, but Ive managed the dress bodice so far. Skirt part should be next, then all the fiddley details. Good start 8D

7th June 2012: Petticoat and Pause Hrnk... Sooo this cosplay has come to a screeching halt due to money issues. Sniff. But I have forked out for a yellow petticoat cos I found the perfect one on ebay and didnt want it to get away. Plan to continue this when I get a job... Wah XD

27th April 2012: Wig Ordered So I realised about 5 minutes after cutting most of my hair off that I could no longer just ponytail and poof up my hair for this. Damnit.

So after lots of deliberation, I fiiinally chose a wig. Buying a blonde wig when I already have blonde hair seems wasteful, but hey XD

Bought the base and ponytails in one cos it was easier (and cheaper) than buying them all separately and trying to get the blondes to match. Hopefully it'll match its picture, cos its a really nice shade of blonde, not the usual yellow or whiteish colours a lot of wigs come in.

Hrnk... only the boots and wig and already £50 spent... Still need to get fabric and such... This cosplay makes my wallet cry XD

5th April 2012: Boots Ordered Ordered some white knee-length canvas boots with yellow laces. Will need to edit them a bit but it'll be a good start!

you dont have to paint the lower half of your boots. you could use some electrical tape, and paint a yellow line around it. that way, you can save your boots. Just something to think about.

Nice cosplay so far ^^
