I became interested in xxxHolic after watching the Anime a couple of years ago. I never really thought about Cosplaying from the series until I saw the second season of the show (xxxHolic: Kei) because I adored the dynamic relationship between Himawari, Doumeki and Watanuki. I grew to like Watanuki since he's really goofy but very endearing. (^^) When I heard my friend Sakura was interested in Cosplaying Himawari, I was inspired to Cosplay as Watanuki and Sakura randomly had a revelation that Andy would make a great Doumeki. Our xxxHolic group was then born. :3 I can't take credit for the majority of this costume since I failed at my early attempts to make the shirt and pants. (>.<);; Sakura was a master at making homemade patterns and planned and figured out everything. I sewed on a few things here and there (the buttons and some snaps) and I made my prop pipe fox (who is a total hippie and needs a haircut). XD She also styled my wig, which was originally the exact same bob wig that she used for Himawari.
I had a lot of fun being part of the xxxHolic group at Youmacon '08. I was really hoping that we would find a Yuuko Cosplayer there to take photos with but I never saw a single Yuuko all con. Hopefully we'll eventually do a shoot at a school type environment to get more in character pictures. We need more group shots with Doumeki (although as Watanuki I canít believe I just said that). XD
