This was made off of the anime version, the only colored version at the time, which had the jacket as green and white. Hoshino makes some odd color choices, sometimes. She also may or may not "hate cosplayers," so. We do our best with what we can.
I quilted the fabric for this costume myself. Seeing as how it was my first attempt at doing so, it turned out amazingly. It took a month of my life, literally 6+ hours every day, sometimes without eating. Long into the nights I worked, sewing while listening to the radio and watching college kids come home from parties from my treetop window, pinning over 1,000 2.5" fabric squares together watching Nat Geo, all routinely until two AM. Go to class and work, repeat.
It was a good month, though I never want to do that again.
But I got it done in time, so there!
