Serial Experiments Lain

My first cosplay evar! Wheee! Lain was made for Fanime 03, my first convention. She consists of a lined cotton flannel jacket (mmm, toasty!), wool turtleneck, twill skirt, knee-high boots, a deceptively real wig, and the hat. Oh, the hat. The hat was entirely handsewn, largely on airplanes, before I knew what I was doing when drafting patterns. It's one of those things that I can get away with, but really should be remade before I embarass myself. It being my first con, I also had no bloody idea how to pose (not saying that I do now, but it was worse then), so I've only got one halfway decent photo, and that's all you're ever gonna see. ;) She still gets worn occasionally (in a stripped-down form at WIC-TOP 06, and just the hat at Fanime 04), and she often comes along as a back-up, but the wig's too short and the hat too small, so she doesn't come out much.
To this day, she still hasn't had the cuffs of her jacket properly finished.. I'm bad about finishing stuff.
