I have a friend in Italy who i converted into a cosplayer Her very first cosplay ever was Nani from One Piece! She hand sewed the whole thing because she doesn'thave a sewing machine n it came out AWESOME! I am so proud of her!
I love that outfit! It's so awesome. I was thinking about doing it awhile back... Anyways, you know those pink patterns on it? I'm pretty sure that you could use acrylic or fabric paints to put them on; a lot less work that cutting them out! Anyway, good luck and godspeed.
