This is my cosplay of Yuki Cross from Vampire Knight. I know I probably look weird with it (I seem to look weird with anything I wear except for my Alice cosplay), but I'm rather satisfied with how it came out. :). My costume does include all of the necessary parts, including her necklace, bracelet (completely invisible in the pictures due to it being rather large on me), and her Artemis Rod. I made the necklace myself, I originally HAD made the bracelet myself, but ended up buying the official one at ACEN because the chain was digging into my wrist, and my Artemis rod was made using a bamboo pole that was spray painted (by my dad) and that had cracks sealed off by my brother.
Anyway, as for the costume itself..
The costume was made from a modified button down shirt. I sewed lapels on the shirt by hand, and added the sailor collar myself too. I also sewed on the cuffs myself. Then, my mom's friend ironed on the white parts of the uniform. I didn't do this myself because I personally don't know how to work an iron, and don't have a sewing machine, so I couldn't do that part by hand. The white parts require complete precision, and my hand sewing isn't that precise. I then finished it by gluing some diamond shaped gems on where necessary (they were sticky backed and intended for scrapbooking, but worked great for what I needed), and some mini roses on the cuffs (I painted these. They were also for scrapbooking, but again served my needs)
The next part of my costume, the necklace, was made using sculpey (for the charm), and some beads that I bought from Michael's and Hobby Lobby, respectively. More details on that will be found in the picture itself.
Anyway, I don't think I'll be wearing this again anytime soon due to the lack of enthusiasm at ACen last year, but I won't get rid of it, either, in case I *do* ever want to wear it again. And if I never wear it for a costume again, at least I can say I have a cool looking uniform in my closet. XD.
Ineligible for awards. I did do a lot of the work myself, but I didn't make the shirt from scratch or sew the white parts on. So I can't do anything other than hall cosplay.
