Expo went well (Posted 26th May 2012)

I had lots of fun wearing Makina today at expo, even though no one recognised me or got one photo taken (except what was taken on my own camera). Cosplay is about loving the character at the end of the day and im very proud to have carried her off well.

There needs to be more Shikabane Hime love!

Complete! (Posted 23rd May 2012)

Everything is finsihed and ready for expo! I managed to complete everything in time :) Loving the wig!

Cut cut cut! (Posted 20th May 2012)

Cutting all the blue strips to edit the top today and the front flap, will need to get some gold ribbon tomorrow for the front detail, and some red face paint for some cuts! Then it's just the wig to style ;)

Wig arrives (Posted 7th May 2012)

The wig arrived this weekend and it's amazing! Quite a few edits to do so this cosplay can be finished potentially for May expo, that's the plan anyway! Hope to re-wear for Amecon too ^^

Edits... (Posted 30th April 2012)

Fingers crossed I can edit an existing uniform to turn it into Makina's :)
