I'm new, so first of all, nice to meet you! (´3`)
I was cleaning my wardrobe today, only to realize I had some pieces of blue fabric I didn't remember I had.
With that, I ought to work on some cosplays with them.
One of my "dream cosplays" is Ema Skye, from Phoenix Wright. I'm not sure which version I'd prefer to cosplay, though: AAI
. For both, I have the glasses, wig, undershirt, wristwatch and lab coat; I don't have the blue lens, pink hat, both tops, both bottoms, red socks, striped tie, brown bag and both shoes.
I'm going to attend a con in 1 month. I've been thinking of cosplaying Rin Tohsaka, for which I already have the costume except for the lens (and the shoes aren't ideal but will do;
. Now, it has occurred to me that I might make Ema in time, since I just found these fabrics and I'm on my summer break. Problem is, I don't know which version I'd like to cosplay.
Pros and cons:
AAI version: it's cuter and my friends seem to like it better. I would have to make the tie (not so hard), make a brown bag (can do as well). The brown shorts shouldn't be so hard to find, either. I suppose it would be hard to find a pink beret, and affordable boots. As for the vest, I might use the blue fabric to make it, or just make do with the vest I already have (though it's a darker shade of blue, the shape is perfect - I could use it as a pattern as well).
PW version: I think I like it better, to be 100% honest. I'd have to find red socks and red shoes, which wouldn't be so easy, although I'm not sure if that is supposed to be a schoolgirl mocasin (which I'd have to buy anyway); I'd have to work on a pleated skirt, which shouldn't be so hard and the fabric shouldn't be that expensive either, and I might be able to find a second hand one for sale as well. I would have to work on the vest as well (these fabrics seem to be perfect for it!).
...Now I'm torn. Should I change my plans and work on this Ema cosplay? If so, which version? Should I just drop it all, go as Rin and use that fabric on a Mirai Kuriyama
uniform? (I think it should be a bit darker, though!) Would denim work better for Ema Skye's vest?
Please help me with your suggestions!~
