Tendo Akane

School Uniform (v2.0)

Ranma 1/2

Last Updated: 11-02-2012

I decided a while back I needed to replace Akane's uniform. Since she's my favorite character I cosplay her a lot, particularly the school uniform. My original one isn't really up to my current standards, and I wanted a lighter weight version with a matching jacket, plus both versions of the blouse so I'd finally be able to wear the outfit comfortably year-round.

I used rayon gabardine for the dress and jacket. The dress pattern was slightly refined from my original version, with a better fit and real waist ties (vs. a false bow and snaps). As with the first one, the bodice back is based on the manga. Overall it's much more comfortable and flowy, better suited to all seasons. The jacket is based off the commercial pattern I used for Hikaru (Magic Knight Rayearth), with small alterations.

The winter blouse is cotton stretch sateen, a slightly heavier weight material that suits colder weather conventions and photoshoots. The summer blouse is lighter in weight and has very full puffed sleeves. Both are loosely based on the pattern I made for my old uniform.

Iím currently working on a mallet prop, and would like to make a new P-chan plush, as well as a new, thicker wig.
