Anime Maid


May Expo is coming up soon and I'm trying to organise my costume.
I know I definitely want to go as some form of a maid, but I'm stuck on what character to go as. So this is kinda of a request for help! If any of you would be kind enough to link me to maid characters you think I would suit. There's pictures of me in my profile so you can what you think would suit.

I also want to make my costume or at least parts of it, so I was wondering if anyone knows where to find any decent sewing patterns for maid outfits, or components such as the apron and headress :3 It would be a massive help, because my google searches are turning up nothing D:

Browse away my dear!

As for patterns, JoAnn's (or other craft stores) typically have a 'Halloween' pattern that has your basic maid pattern. The top is a little ... non ideal in my opinion, so it's best to kind of combine and make some hybrid patterns here.

There's a lot of maid characters out there, I'm sure you'll find something.

Ahhh, one big tip though - if you're looking to do something like Sakura from Tsubasa, her maid outfit, do take care to make sure you don't end up looking like a pilgrim. I threw that thing out as soon as I realized I looked like I belonged in a Thanksgiving re-enactment...

Oh yeah, apron pattern - I ended up making my own, but I'M SURE there's also a pattern out there for that.

Thanks for the suggestions guys - I'll look into them

@onewinged: Thanks for the help with the patterns and such. I'm sure it'll take me a few times before I get it right xD

Some anime/game maids:

Mikage from Pretear - http://img2.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spi...b4b40_full.jpg

Whim from Mana Khemia 2/Cross Edge - http://crossedge.neoseeker.com/w/i/c...ross_Edge).png

I always thought the Disgaea Mages looked a bit like maids: http://hg101.kontek.net/nipponichi/disgaea-mage.jpg

First thing that popped in my head was Maylene from Kuroshitsuji.
She's pretty awesome. c:
