12th April 2009: 001 So it's five days 'til Kitacon. Is this costume complete? No way! I wouldn't want to ruin the traditional last minute con rush, would I now? XD
Alex is working hard on the coffin, and it's looking great so far. Hopefully I can get some progress shots up soon. In terms of the costume itself, the coat's still in fabric-form and there is no hat to speak of. I managed to find myself some good shoes though (that cost me £10 rather than the £80 I initially had my eye on!), and my wig's cut and ready for action. The most I've actually done so far is spent time cutting out the template for a Sen plushie =3
Seeing as I seem to have misplaced my sewing needles, he's currently still in the template form.
So, I have four days remaining. 3 of which I'm at work. Wow, can anybody say 'stress'?

I haven't heard of Shoulder-a-Coffin Kuro before, but this looks really cute! Can't wait to see :)
This is awesome and I don't even know the manga ^_^

I'm not sure what it is. There's just something about Kuro's character design that's completely adorable. You did this so well! You've really captured the essence of Kuro, I think. ^-^
