I told myself I'd never do a costume about a character I didn't know but that changed with this costume. My friend, Lafiel, wanted someone to cosplay Chrno to complement her Rosette costume and I took up the task... And what a task this turned out to be.
We managed to kill two sewing machines on this costume. We ended up needing one to make bobbins and the second one to sew. They couldn't do each thing individually -_-
Costume has been fixed up since it was first worn at Anime North 2005. The coat tails now have interfacing added to give them better shape and the front two were fixed to be the proper shape with the rest of the jacket, also leaving a large seam down the front of both of them... But aside from that, the jacket looks a lot better.
The box is pretty much completed aside from the straps. The foam core isn't holding up very well and sort of warped after being painted so the front of the box isn't holding up very well. I'll have to figure out what I can do about that.
