Kalifa suited me so well, I just had to cosplay her! I am totally the secretary type, plus, I LOVE to cosplay characters that wear glasses so I don't have to take mine off for pictures.
This was a fairly easy costume, mostly because I had the boots and skirt already, left-over from Mireille from Noir. The jacket was pretty tough though, especially since I bought the wrong color fabric my first time out, then they didn't have enough orange in the nice thick fabric I wanted, so I had to use a thinner kind that's not nearly as nice, but it got the job done.
The other tough thing about the jacket was the ribknit collar and sleeves. I have no idea where you can buy fabric with big enough ribs, so I bought a sweater, and dyed for the first time. The sweater was made out of 100% acrylic (one of the not recommended materials for dying) but after a half hour, it took just enough yellow dye.
Over all I am very happy with how this costume turned out and can't wait to finish her CP9 version!
