My friend will be happy to know that I already started working on my school uni Amu. I already own the white shirt, wig and skirt, so what I need is the leg warmers and red tie. The black cardigan was made by me. I had just enough black jersey fabric left from my live action Misa to make Amu's cardigan.
The wig was originally for my Lenna FFV cosplay which I planned for a while, but never even started on the costume, so I thought I'll use it for Amu. I had to cut the fringe since it covers my eyes & hardly could see a thing. Only problem is that I can;t style it like Amu's, if I attempt to tie it in a high side pony tail, it will show my hair underneath the net >.<" I might have another wig before the Expo because my friend found the perfect wig for Amu, but it was around £38 including shipping. Although I really LOVE the wig, I only have a budget of £20 T_T My friend did offer to buy the wig for me as an Christmas present, but I felt kinda bad because £38 is a lot of money. Anyway no matter how bad I feel, I think he will eventually buy it for me, so I may have a btter wig in time for the Expo.
I was planning to re-use the shoes from my Azumanga cosplay, but my mum put them away and she does not remember where they are, so I assume my shoes are lost >.<" .... grrrr... now I may have to spend some extra cash on a new pair of shoes!!! If I can't find the shoes by mid Feb, then I will go to the cheap shoe shop opposite my work place because all of their shoes ranges from £1-£40, I maybe lucky and find a pair for just a quid!
This Saturday my friend invited me to go to Wolverhampton to do some Christmas shopping... well, more like cosplay shopping, so I will buy the rest of the sources which I may need for this costume. I can guarantee this costume will be finished just in time for Midlands Expo, so look out for the cool and Spicy girl walking around the Expo!
