Hikari Horaki

Cosplayer: Siouxsie James

Variant: casual dress/manga

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

14th January 2013: Woot the dress fits this time!! :) So after having the dress be too small I had to re-make it (with the aid of the sewing machine) and so far it's gone really well, or at least it fits me!!! :) The only thing is that I've run out of material and I need to add some underneath on the back (it needs two layers of material as it's a cheap see-through material!!) So I'll have to go shopping for it ^^ which could be dangerous as there is a lot of material that I'd like to buy!!

26th December 2012: Nearly there So I just need to find some flowers to make a bouquet for this as the finishing touch.
I do also need to stick on the buttons for the clips of the dungarees but aside from that the dress is done.

I had some issues while making the dress with the measurements(I wish I could use patterns but I can't so I made it up as I went along!!) the first time the dress was too big, I then edited it and it became too small, then I edited it again a couple more times and eventually it ended up slightly big in places and slightly small in places!
I am however proud of myself for one thing, I hand-sewed my first zip in place and at first it looked AMAZING! But after all of the editing it looks a bit rubbish :P but I know that it looked nice at first and therefore I am very happy with myself :) (simple things)

I ended up buying cheap black pumps for this cosplay as I saw no yellow ones and thought I could use black shoes again for something else.

I took a look at the wig the other day and I'm not 100% happy with the cut but I can't take anymore off (I've taken a little too much off the fringe as it is) so I'll just settle for it.

:D:D cosplay done!

28th October 2012: Buying things~ The dress is still in progress, I'm pretty poor at sewing and so the progress has been slow (I've been making annoying mistakes) but it's all part of the development process so I don't mind too much!! ^^
I did manage to pick up the zip and buckles for cheap so that was great!

I still haven't found a nice (cheap) pair of yellow shoes yet though so if anyone spots a pair (in size 3) please let me know!! :D

25th September 2012: Dress :P Started making the dress finally, looks crap though -nothing like Hikari's but I'll stick with it for now!! :p We'll see how it turns out!

28th August 2012: Cutting times~~ Chopped my wig up a little tonight with the help of my sister being a model for me (thank you) I probably didn't do a great job as I'm not good with wigs at all but I had to try :P and it's all experience hey ;)

11th July 2012: Starting to gather... So this may be a while away but I have bought a T-shirt/dress thing that is stripey!!! :)
At some point soon (maybe after Amecon) I will hopefully start the dungaree dress :3 if anyone wants to give me tips on that please feel free :D

N'aww... I've never really come across a Hikari cosplayer, when it comes to Evangelion. This'll be cute. Of course, my Gendou will ruin any cuteness, should I find you.
