18th May 2019: Can I Sleep Now LOL Think I'm up to scratch with everything now and finally got the cosplay were I want it to be, but now I do need sleep other wise I will over lay and miss the train in the morning.
I do hope this find some use for people and thanks for taking the time to read my journey progress.
18th May 2019: Last Minuit Preps And Tweeks Okies last minuit preps and tweeks.
I think I have finally got to were I wanted the cosplay to be, it took it’s time but I got there.
Everything laid out ready for the morning.

17th May 2019: Last minute improvements I know I started to lack things a bit caught up with life or forgetting, but managed to sort improvements last moment night before.
Such as the shoes and buttons.
The shoes I cut away the barrier that holded the shoes together tidying it up making the shoes look more how they should be for Kurisu.
The buttons thanks to my nan found a pair that was right for the cuffs of the shirt I modded.

11th May 2019: Other options? I still consider thinking even then if to do or alter something with the top later on or not that came with the costume?
But may consider the same colour ribbon but a bit better quality and less fray.
11th May 2019: It got me think to change or Improve Hmmm. Well not sure when finished to wear this shirt or the one came with the costume.
Wanted to make it looks like the reference.
And was thinking of doing this after YCC, but managed to find what I need thanks for market halls and charity shop.
Shirt from Oxfam
Ribbon from Alfreton Market Hall.
Might not look great but try best.
It is all tacked, but needs sewing on machine but can’t till gotten purple thread.
Was going to have this shirt for MCM October 2019. But have to decide soon if to leave this out till after YCC.
10th May 2019: Change of Ties The tie that came with the costume was ok but still... the zip system made me worry.
Lucky while working at BHF well volunteering managed to find the tie.
Thought this would be better use.
7th May 2019: Results Of Hot Mess Sat her by the window for now so what you think 😖
7th May 2019: Sorting A Hot Mess Trying to style this hot mess for the first time, and already worrying me if I can get this looking perfect.
3rd May 2019: CosTesting Cosplay So thought I cos test the cosplay fits nicely but noticed the shorts can be tight ish but all still fits ok, feel I have put a bit of weight on 😩
The shirt could do with a bit of a iron what with it being creased a bit.
I am having a bit concerns with the tie because of how it been made with a zip system that feels could jam at any time, so may put my mind on ease and buy a nice red tie off eBay along with my wig caps.
Still not sure if adding a zip on the jacket is worth it or not?
But think after YCC I may get a white shirt and mod it better to like the references of Kurisu from Steins Gate better.
Keeping all the original on the costume I brought in case end up selling which I properly wont.
A nice custom cosplay but further on thinking of making some improvements, top top is fine but missed out the purple under the collar and could be darker.
The tie is nice but could get a normal red tie that can fasten, the jacket nice but not sure if adding a zip to it be the right idea or not?
The belt I could improve by finding a white belt with a gold buckle or make a white belt and buckle.
How ever the shorts seems fine.
Not tryed the outfit yet but could do later to see how it all fits 🙂
All n all at least it arrived in time, just need to sort the wig out with the extensions is just the major thing, getting wig caps and some blackish tights.
