It's not where you've been

It's not where you've been - Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance - Mari Illustrious Makinami
Ah, yet another unproductive day...oh well, spring break is coming up and I will have over a week to toy around with costume things then, namely Cheryl from Shattered Memories, her mementos and nurse Lisa Garland from SHSM. :3

Mari costume & wig by me, picture by my boyfriend. Major thanks to lulubird; I had forgotten my Mari tie for the convention, and she had a pair of tights that were the right color. I temporarily turned them into a tie at her suggestion, and it worked! TY, lulubird for having made it possible to get Mari pics at Katsu

When I did it for my Kairi, it wasn't too bad. I dunno how it would be for Mari, since it's so many different colors? I was gonna try, since I'm so unhappy with mine. But that will of course have to wait until the plugsuit is done. I'll have to suffer with my current uniform plus new socks for Anime Detour.... My wig just came though! It's so gorgeous! I have to tint it slightly red, but I'm glad I splurged for a skin top back part wig!

So this is why you never made it to the game room, huh?
Haha, I kid. I like this picture. It looks like someone is keeping you waiting. And I never even knew about the tie until you mentioned it. I just hope you were able to fix the trim on the patch later.

XD! I am very happy to say that this was taken after I met up with you and Amelia, but very sad to say that I missed filming your gaming session ;_;

I can definitely fix the trim on the patch, I shooped it in for this picture just for kicks. Glad the tie blended in hehe :3

I was gonna ask you, how did you do the plaid? All hand-painted?

Sanda replied on 02-27-2011 at 02:53 AM:

I wish! I could not find a decent tartan for the life of me that was in the right color scheme AND had a big enough pattern, but I actually found a skirt on ebay that was perfect (minus the light blue stripes). It set me back 17 bucks AND shipping, but after hours of searching it made me super happy hehe. The light blue is just thin ribbon that has been super glued (as fabric glue would just be too gunky to apply and would have bled through a lot more) to the skirt. I took in the skirt on both sides and cut it shorter. I really hope hand making plaid isn't too tough, I need to do that for a future project D:
