Ohno has to be one of my favorite characters, ever. Genshiken is a simple serries about the everyday life of college Otaku, its a sweet story that we all can relate to. Ohno is the resident cosplayer among the group who is extremely shy outside of costume. She's a cuddly drunk as well. With her love interest, Tanaka, they make an excellent couple and cosplaying duo. Plus, my actual boyfriend totally looks like Tanaka, although he won't admit it.
So, about the costume itself. I drafted my own pattern for the dress, obi, and gloves - which makes everything original neko. I couldn't do it again if you asked me, but it worked out this time. Most of the armor is craft foam with model magic, styrene and wonderflex for the left hand bracelet. The giant boots were bought online for $65.
Thanks to vinylgrrl I now understand the ways of zippers and plastic boning. And extra shout out to Andreaoftheland for helping me figure out my wig. I <3 you two!
