Costume Information

Cost : £20
Time Taken : 8 hours

Bio - Shizuku is the female protagonist of the story. A high school student who starts off only thinking and interested about studying and getting the top grades in the class and doesn't have feelings for other things or everyone around her. She meets Haru Yoshida for the first time delivering class printouts to him. Originally not caring for him; as they get along, her perspective in life was changed as she begins to experience things outside of studying and feelings she has never felt before.

The wig was bought from ebay and was cut by myself. I'm not the greatest whn it comes to cutting wigs as i do tend to give up easily if even one strand doesn't go right. But i managed and i think it turned out fine for me. I do have a small face so the wig looks pretty big on my from the sides. But overall it is a comfortable wig. Even wear it outside of cosplay!

Bag, Shirt, Skirt and tie are all handmade. Jumper, socks n shoes were bought.

EDIT - 2016
Getting rid of wig to buy a new one. Going to get a lighter brown colour so it fits her better to be a bit more natural. Will also make the jacket too. Hopefully by the end of this year

Wig: Before/After (Posted 19th March 2013)

This wig was actually really easy to cut, but i was so nervous cutting it as it was my first time cutting a wig. My sister did my previous ones, like my Crona Wig and my Yui Wig. But i finally had the courage to cut it. The fringe was down to my chin, and i had to cut the sides to blend it in, i know it's not prefect but i think it goes well when it's tied back like in my test shot. In the end i'm very pleased with my myself.

Skirt 'n Jacket (Posted 19th March 2013)

Ok here comes the stressed part, pleated skirts. They are annoying, but i've managed to get them done in the past. So hopefully i can managed to get this one accurate too. Fabric wasn't cheap as it is Wool Tartan. Jacket im using Just normal cotton drill fabric, works well as i've used cotton drill on pretty much all of my costumes. c: The colours are a lil' off in teh picture, but the red is a bit more darker.
