Where: London MCM Expo (now called London ComicCon)
I did this costume with a group of my cosplaying friends and it's one of my favourites. I really enjoy the manga for Air Gear (haven't touched the anime with a barge pole) so the costume had to be based on the manga. I put tons of research into doing a sailor costume and worked really hard on painting the trouser leg. It turned out a lot better than I was expecting it to! I'm particularly proud because I made everything in this costume, from the hat to the trousers (obviously not the skates or the wig though).
I didn't take any progress pics for this costume.
|This was practically the only reference picture I used. This and other images from the manga.|
|Unfortunately spending a day skating around in the wind resulted in the wig getting very, very tangled.|
|This is one of my favourites!|
