Rin Kokonoe - Kodomo no Jikan


Last minute cosplay plan change since I felt a little insecure about doing Shinji and I wanted to cosplay something cute instead. I've wanted to cosplay Rin for a very long time so I decided to finally do it!

Liking the proress. Impressed that you made the skirt from scratch. It's bad enough ironing pleats, let alone making them!

Wig/Make-up test

Today I did a wig/make-up test! This wig is SO hard to take care of, it gets tangled before I've even worn it ; ___; I'm reaaaally happy with how I managed to make my make-up look (this was my first time wearing false eyelashes!) and how it looks together with the wig though :D

Skirt progress

This photo gives a much more accurate view of the skirt colour than the last one!! I'm really happy with how it's turning out, it's almost finished! I just need to sew it together and add a zip so I can wear it :D

Hair accessories

Here they are! I think they're perfect, I just hope I can get them to look right and be secure on the wig

Hair accessories

I did a lot of thinking about what to use for Rin's pink ball hair accessory things and it stumped me for a while. I thought about using polystyrene balls but I didn't quite see that one working out well. But then I realised that ballpit balls would be the right size, lightweight, they'd be hollow like I wanted them to be and they'd have the right overall look. I found this bag of playpit balls including the PERFECT colour so I won't even have to paint them! Sooo pleased right now. I'm hoping to attach them to some wire that I can wrap around the wig where it has to go as I think it would be easier to wear them using that method than if I attached it to an actual hair band (Can you imagine how hard it would be to wrap a hair band around a wig when it has two large spheres attached to it?) and should also keep them sturdy. Fingers crossed this works out!

Wig arrived

The wig arrived! Here's a photo of just the two clip on twintails (this is both of them), they get tangled sooo easily. I almost forgot how much of a pain they are ;___; The wig is a little more golden coloured than it looked in the stock images but I'm pretty okay with it. It's not perfect but this colour might look nicer worn on me than a lighter blonde.

Jacket progress

Okay so I'm pretty pleased with how the jacket is coming along so far! The hood definitely won't look like that when it's done, I'm just putting the hood part on last after I've made it button up and everything and I sorta kept it there to give an idea of what it will look like. The material is so soft and warm inside, I hope it'll keep me warm enough at October Expo! All this hand sewing through so many layers is making my hands hurt, though... ;__;

Jacket materials

These aren't quite as far apart in colour as I was hoping judging by the stock images that were given... but I'm hoping they'll work out anyway. I guess I sorta like the subtle look of them together.

1st October 2013


Ordered everything for the jacket, hopefully it'll work out to plan! I'll head down to the fabric store and pick out the lighter blue material I need for the skirt soon. Really counting on this to all work out!

Rin skirt progress?

Okay, this skirt is actually one that I started making for my K-On! cosplay a while back... but I ended up buying the entire thing to match with my group so this skirt was left unfinished and abandoned but I kept it anyway. I found it out and I think I can use it for Rin with some work! It's pretty amateur work, I know, it needs a lot of fixing up. The waistband is really long but that might be okay since I plan on wearing it high up on my waist. It's not even sewn together fully yet, I just folded it around a little to take this photo and give you an idea of what it looks like. It's also a lot lighter and closer to Rin's skirt colour in real life, the lighting in my room is just awful. And obviously, it needs ironing... I just found it out from where I've been storing it for a while.

I've decided to wear these socks with uwabaki shoes instead of the flipflops or trainers I always see her wearing with this outfit. I think this will work fine since she wears these in other outfits and IMHO it gives a cuter and more 'Rin' look overall.

26th September 2013


This is the wig that I bought! I'm a bit wary about the stock image used (it doesn't seem to be their own but I know that most stock images are never the store owner's own on Ebay anyway) but hopefully it'll turn out fine and they have very good feedback!
