Kanda's Past Arc
Last Updated: 03-25-2011
Alma has a very likable personality. At least to me. I've never met anyone who's "on the border" with him. They either like him or they don't, though a majority seem to like him, which is a relief to me.
I think of all the characters I've cosplayed so far, Alma has fit me best, in both looks and personality. It's very easy for me to slip into Alma without overdoing it to an annoying extent.
I was short on time for this, despite how much time I had to plan it ^^;
The white jacket was made by a good friend of mine, Rabbit. My sewing skills are still developing and she knows far more than I do, and she knew a cool sewing trick to make the cuffs look REALLY good. I'm excited to be wearing her handiwork!
Despite knowing that Alma wears shorts, I know of one chapter where he and Yuu both wore long pants. I'm definitely more comfortable in long black pants, so I did that, and used my black slip-on shoes (which I'll eventually replace with more accurate shoes XD)
I styled the wig myself (as a mock-test first, but then it became the wig I ended up using instead of the light brown colour) and after a few long minutes behind the mirror, figured out the basic application for the scar over his nose. Sometimes I go out as a casual Alma with my other friends who cosplay and each time, I practiced the scar. I'm so glad I eventually got it look like how it's supposed to! XD
I think of all my cosplays, this is by far my favourite. I love Alma to a ridiculous extent, so much so that my own hair IRL is even styled like his, haha! I colour it a lot, though, so it only really looks like his hair when I dyed it brown or something~
And according to my friend Nelly, I once murmured Alma's name in my sleep. Thought that was a little funny, since I can't recall the dream.
Tl;DR - I love Alma, this is my favourite cosplay, and I always have fun slipping into this outfit! <3
