Manga Cover version
Last Updated: 02-20-2012
I have been a fan of this awesome series since I first heard of it through some anime news..The bond between two girls with vastly different personalities and it held on through thick and thin was what attracted me to this series. It's so realistic, it resonates with actual life.
I chose Hachi cuz I am more of her personality than anyone else in the series LOL! I fell in love with this version cuz I am a sucker for cute dresses with huge skirts LOL!
This version of the dress is from the NANA manga covers (I cant remember which volume though)...Our team tried to replicate the scenes featured on the manga covers as accurately as possible and I am very happy with the outcome..
The icing on the cake has gotta be the fact that I had Hito as Nana ^__^ Hachi alone juz wont cut it (for me at least) cuz the main crux of the NANA storyline is the bond between Nana and Hachi...
The dress was tailored-made and I wore it to an old friend's wedding in Singapore last year :) I love the HUGE, full circle skirt but that ate up a lot of cloth LOL...
For her wig, it was a nightmare looking for that particular style and I was lucky I managed to find it...Many thanks to Hito & Relyss for styling the two "bird nests" on my wig LOL!
For her shoes, I specifically bought a pair of peep-toed heels for this and I love that pair so much cuz it represents Hachi so much! I bought white knee-lenght socks as well cuz Hachi wore that in the scan...My regret was the heels ended up slightly smaller and I had trouble walking cuz my heels kept slipping out @__@ I dunno why this happened cuz when I tried on the heels, it fit me perfectly @__@
I was anal about getting a brown handbag cuz Hachi was seen carrying on in the scan, so I scoured the net for a cheap and yet similar-looking one LOL...I was lucky I found one and got it in time for the shoot :)
I also got a heart-shaped ring which i wore during the shoot...I bought the ring cuz when re-read the manga, Hachi was shown wearing a heart-shaped ring...
I also bought nail polish in similar shade to my dress' colour cuz the scan showed Hachi having such nail polish colour...It was hard to find that colour and I never like painting my nails cuz I suck at it @__@
