This was such a disappointment. I had planned for a while on this since our whole anime club had planned on cosplaying as Ranma 1/2 characters. I wanted to be Akane. So I started planning on it like 2 months before the con...but procrastination kicked in and I waited until the day before the con to try and make my costume.
It looked like crap, nothing was really finished. The ties for the bow where sewn onto the outside instead of the inside. The back where the zipper was all frayed and the sewing was horrible cause of the time restraint. The material was cheap, I hadn't had a chance to buy a wig or get hair dye.
So it was tragic. I'm not even going to put up a picture of it. The one I made for Metro 03 was better...and that was thrown to together in less time.
Literally, 4-5 hours.....started at 10:00ish the day before the con....finished at like 5:30am. Had to leave for the con around 9:00....
Blue Fabric - $10
Shirt - Preowned, originally about $10
Zipper (for back) - $1.50
Total Cost - $21.50
Hahaha...I *DID NOT* bother competing.
