I made this for Amanda last week, any comments? I have no pictures of the back though.

Since I'm a CosplayLab.com member too and I know how the site works, I was able to find the costume. However, you gave the link to the preview that only you can see when you're logged in. Here's the link you SHOULD have given:


No points off for the bad link though, since I was able to get around it.

Otherwise, I think the hat is very well done. Maybe it puckers a bit too much around the stripes on the top, but that's a small detail. I really like how you made the flower in perfect proportion; it's not too big or too small, nor is it too tacky. The fabric might be a bit too orangey, but reference pictures vary and so do digital cameras; it might be the perfect color when seen in person.

I always do that, thanks. XD

When I was at the fabric store, at first I thought the fabric was too yellow, but it looks different under different light. I'll get a clearer picture (and use a flash!) next time I see Amanda.

Thanks again for the hat Misa and I love it ^___^. I guess I'll wear the hat with my Inuyasha costume at Philcon as a joke lol XD.
But I think its great ^___^.

I think it's adorable! I do the same thing with my hats and made an Afro Ken one! It looks so nice as a hat and what's even nicer is it was a present.......... is there anything about it you wanted to change or wanted to know about?

Thanks! ^^ I was in the giving mood: Puchiko for Amanda and now I'm doing Dejiko for Cindy, and a "Random Dead Kitty" for Kayla. XD Just wanted to know if it looked accurate or Puchiko-like.

Oh yea, it wreaks of Puchiko cuteness!

Very cute!

I've made quite a few di gi charat hats, and I know how hard they can be to make. ^^; If your hat was going to be used for an actual Puchiko cosplay, you might have problems with it because it will cover up the bangs. I made mine so that it would fit on the back of the head a few inches past the bangs, just how her hat is in the anime. ^^ But if you're wearing it just for fun, then it's all good. I like it!

Yeah, I didn't notice it until the end and already sewed it on, I made the end with the brim too long and you sort of have to pull the brim down over your ears if you don't want it to look too square on your head. (unless you tuck in some extra-puffy fake pieces of hair which won't look too good) Thanks though, I'll remember to not do that next time. ^^ Yours looks kawaii too, big kitty ears are so cool. XD
