31st January 2015: finished! I'll definitely work on the wig again closer to when I wear the cosplay (like gelling the middle part together, I just don't have hair products for that atm) but it's basically done! I won't be cutting large chunks off anymore AND I think I have figured out how to adjust the hair strands with hairslides as best as possible to resemble Rin's hairstyle most naturally ^u^ Though, as always, one side turned out a lot better than the other for the test but at least there's no limit to how often I can try to perfect both sides!
Super excited for the weather to warm up so I can wear this =D
24th January 2015: !!! Okay so I got my jacket and I love it. The other day I bought some pants that actually double as pants for this (which I only realized when I got home, I love it when this happens!) and I already have a black shirt. All I need to do now is cut my wig and I am finished with this cosplay omg. Exciting *u*
12th January 2015: oops So I was putting off buying a Samezuka jacket for Rin for a long time since all the ebay ones were upwards $50 which is just nuts, and the ones they sell here are even MORE expensive. But I last checked in like September or something, so I looked again today and lo and behold....they are not as expensive as they used to be! At least not all of them, so I bit the bullet and bought one! =D I haven't bought cosplay on ebay for actual years haha. I hope it's nice, though it will never beat the niceness of my Iwatobi jacket.
I also bought a collapsible wig stand in Hiroshima a few weeks ago, so I can actually cut my Rin wig now! Which I will probably do while waiting for all my stuff for Taemin to come in. Excited about this cosplay again!! >w<
