Tenma Tsukamoto
School Rumble

Cosplayer: Ichigo-Chan

Variant: Winter school uniform

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

28th June 2009: Complete! Costume was completed yesterday night, but I was too lazy to get on my comp to write my journey as you can imagine that I fell asleep. I eventually decided to make the beige jacket myself because the quotes from comissioners were ridiculously high! the cheapest quote was £40 and the highest was £116 which excludes shipping. Damn! those comissioners making so much profit with labour for a simple jacket. Anyways I brought 2m of beige cotton from Fancy Silk stores @ £4.99 per metre and it took approximtely 2 days to complete.

Costume is ready for AyaCon! I have enough spare fabric to make the summer uniform, so if I have the time I'll probably make it because I predict Aya will be a very hot summer Con and the winter school uniform felt so hot.

Random fact ~ This is my cheapest cosplay which costs £10.49 in total!

30th May 2009: Almost there (without jacket) Costume is almost complete expect I'm missing the beige jacket which is the most important part of the costume. If I can find someone to comission it for me at a fair price, then I may end up buying it otherwise I'll be staying up until 5am sewing! it does not take long to make the jacket however I'm bearing in mind that I still have a lot of work on my Sakura costume.

My pigtails are not accurate, but there is NO way I'm cutting my hair OR getting a wig for a simple costume which would only be worn once or twice. Infact my hair looks more like Ami Koshimizu (Tenma's actress) in the School Rumble musical.

20th May 2009: Ebaying I wanted to concentrate on my other AyaCon costumes, so I went on Ebay to buy parts of the costume. Today I won a pleated red skirt and red hair elastics. It was my 3rd attempt to bid on a suitble red pleated skirt though the skirt I won is not 100% accurate, in fact it looks more like the skirt in the School Rumble musicals. All thats left is the beige jacket which hopefully I will start soon otherwise I may end up getting it comissioned to save time on my other cosplays.

So far I spent £6.50 on the costume and I hope it does not go above £15 because I'm a cheap skate.
