27th July 2015: Like three days to go Undertop done and jeans cut out. Now they're blue and not bright purple but still not right! Ugh. I'll dye it after Kita, in case of rewears.
22nd July 2015: Week and a Half to Go Jacket and wig done. The dye didn't take on my 'denim' (I suspect a polyester blend the rat bastards) so it's still purple. The bleach didn't work on it either. Not sure whether to suck it up and be disco Riku, or buy some new denim in town when I go to get trainers.
Trousers are pretty simple for me. And the underjacket, apart from the double zip, seems pretty straightforward. Maybe I can finish this all this week.
16th July 2015: Two Weeks To Go - Fucked? I've almost finished the jacket (gilet?) in like two days and everything else is in the post from ebay except my overly purple denim for the trousers (I bought dye, don't panic, don't panic... ><)
Still gotta colour and style the wig, make the undertop, bleach the jean pockets. WHAT DO I DO ABOUT SHOES? And no keyblade makes me sad T^T
I've never started a cosplay this late before. Cross your fingers and toes ladies and gents.
