Condition: Not Set

3rd June 2011: Third wig! Oh god I really am Miwako mad :'D
This is a wig I forgot I had so yeah... 3rd for Miwako :'D Ohhh the outfit possibilities~!

... and wow, I actually look like I have a figure in these pictures *-*

26th May 2011: TA-DAA So, my first Miwako outfit is now complete! (Image in gallery)
I feel I need a necklace and or something on my wrists. But I'm afraid this'll become happy berry overkill! I have a whole day of sitting around doing nothing but waiting for expo to come along tomorrow, so I might make a couple more bits of jewelry..

24th May 2011: Shoes~! I wasnt really fussed about doing the shoes, but found some plain white heels for £3 today so thought "ehh, why not?"
I've painted them pink and added some happy berrys to the toe.
I want to add some lace detail / a bit of white paint detail to the shoes, to make them a bit more individual and interesting - but we'll see~!

23rd May 2011: Contacts Arghh why do I pull such silly shocked faces?!

Anyway, bought the contacts today. Sadly, they still show a bit of my natural color near the center but it's better than being all green.
Miwako is pretty much done now 8D

22nd May 2011: Backpack Re-made the backpack today as I'm now wearing Miwako on the Sunday and the previous attempt wasn't good enough.
It's 100% hand sewn ._.
This one actually works as a backpack, thank god!
I'm actually so happy with it! Just need to attach the straps properly and it's done!

To do now: Buy contacts - doing that tomorrow
Random jewelry bits - ehh sometime over the next week
New shoes? Not a priority

20th May 2011: 8DD Not really relevant to the costume, but I wore the wig out today and got given free cupcakes at the cupcake stall because of my hair 8D
Excuse me while I go celebrate my luck with yummy cupcakes!

20th May 2011: Second wig! I bought this to use as extensions to the pigtails, but to be honest I don't think it really needs them soo I have a second wig to do another outfit with 8D Just needs a fringe~!
(Outfit in picture not relevant, that's just what I wore to college xD)

11th May 2011: Backpack Better image of the backpack. As you can see, the wings and green bit came out weirdly shaped, so needs to be redone eventually

11th May 2011: Happy Berry backpack Made the backpack today~! It's not perfect, but I';m pretty happy with it as a first draft :)
I am tempted to just stitch the backpack to my dress on the day to avoid the horrible straps - we'll see~!

9th May 2011: Wig Soooo the wig arrived today, as I said I want to add extensions to it to make the pigtails a bit bigger but to be honest I don't think it matters too much if they don't arrive in time.
Not sure if I'll bother making a whole outfit - I might just wear my pink lolita dress.
I'll make the backpack though <3

@CrystalNeko aww thank you honey <3 I might end up wearing her another day if something goes wrong! And I think considering the amount of outfits she has she's going to become a pretty frequent cosplay for me - so she'll turn up again! 8D
