28th September 2014: Ugh. Turns out the blouse I bought was the wrong material to make a Seifuku. The collar would just not hang right! No matter... I've started making Tsukiko's pet cafe/ outing costume (white top with pleats and a brown bow across the chest, brown pleated skirt, brown beret with felt flowers).
This will be completed next weekend :) then... photo shoot! Yay!
My boyfriends Yokodera wig was not dispatched on time as it was out of stock and the website decided not to tell us?! Idek.. people these days... *sigh*
He found a better wig on Amazon and ordered that instead (after cancelling the other one) so all systems are go ^~^
18th September 2014: The collar of the Seifuku. I got a static type material blouse that turned out to be cream rather than white, which is highly annoying! But no matter, going to cut it a little shorter and hem the bottom :)
Then next I will proceed to make the collar, keeping my eyes peeled for some cream colored cotton material for it, yellow ribbon, and green cotton for the school emblems (leaves). Going to purchase these from a local material shop, sort of nervous about how it will turn out. I keep having nightmares about it 0_0 (yeah I worry that much) so want to start on it as soon as poss to ease my nerves.
The wig seems a little short (bought at Expo back in May) but it is an actual Tsukiko wig... I've seen it on a few Japanese cosplayers and although it seems short I think it looks very effective. (it even came with the side bit sticking up).
