When I made her, with the help of Ash, we painted the stripes on, one by one. It was a challenge, but very fun to make. Also, the wig was dyed and styled very curly. It was one of my dreams to cosplay as her, and it was a lot of fun.
I won best costume at a very minor anime convention, but at least it was something. It was my very first time entering an anime convention, and its all thanks to Ash.
