Does anyone know where I can get the patterns for Mana's BoB costume? Or am I gonna have to like wing the whole thing? I cant find them anywhere and I am driving my mom nuts (SHes gonna be doing the sewing cuz I can't sew... I am just buying the stuff) because she dosn't know how or where she would start the thing... HELPPPPPP :confused:

Just improvise. Find patter pieecs similar to what you'll need, and alter them slightly. As long as you have the general base, your mommy should be fine.

Long full skirt pleated at the waist, Victorian style high-necked blouse with lego-o-mutton style sleeves. As with the VAST majority of costumes, you won't find anything labeled "Beast of Blood Mana Pattern!" but if you look at a regular pattern catalog at the store and use your imagination, you should be able to come up with something close on your own. If you can't find anything you like there, look at the historical/Victorian pattern companies.

Thanks guys ^_^
And another question...Mana has those icey blue contacts in the video... do you think its a MUST that I should buy them... or will it not really effect the costume if I dont get them... because my eyes are brown

Naw, not at all. I'd say it's more important to get his makeup right than anything else since it stands out so much. Btw, are you going to be at BAAF this year?

I would love to go to BAAF this year, but I doubt the costume will be done by then... or if my parents would let me go. But I am trying to convince then since I already have the money to pay for all 3 days

Which day would be the best day to go? And which day are you guys all gonna meet? I could probably go for one day because I would be able to stay in the city for all 3 days and its a long drive so i wouldn't be able to drive in all 3 days either...

Um... we're all in the Masquerade together on Sunday, and there's a J-rock Photoshoot on Saturday.

actually you do for a split second when he does his little spin when he's playing his jeune fille. its when the video goes into color.

uh no actually there is a bow back there, not a big one, but it has long tails that go down about midthigh. you just gotta watch the video closely enough to see them. you can see a little bit of the bow down by his waist on the first pic and the end of it sticking out on the second pic

I am also planning to be Mana at BAAF this year.. I will only be there on Friday and Saturday unfortunately. Where/when are things happening with the Malice Mizer group?

[oh and it isn't BoB Mana.. so don't worry! My planned costume is in my profile]
