My first cosplay! My boyfriend helped a lot. He cosplayed Rain mith me, and it was awesome. My sister actually cosplayed Freya with us too, but no one at all recognized her. What made it worse was we left her dress in the hotel room*cries*. Anyway, this costume was relatively simple to make. We used cotton for the dress. We also used very thin aluminum and hot glued it to the collar for the metal plate. The gloves were intersting to make, and I'm very glad that they didn't have fingers. I actually colored the wig myself with a prismacolor marker(It was white). I styled it a bit too. I made the scythe out of PVC pipe, sculpey, rubber tennis racket grip, and the blades are cut from plastic halloween props. I tried to use hot glue to attach the blades, but that turned ou tto be a really bad idea, because the blades were about to fall out, so I had to leave the scythe in the hotel room, which made me really sad because I worked on it a long time. Overall, about 10 people recognized it, which was more then I expected. It was really fun to be tackle-hugged by surprised fans! A big HOORAH for those who recognized us. I love the manga, and Machika is a great character. I hope to improve this costume and wear again later.
