:P Hi, all looking forward to another great ACEN this 2009... This year I have made up my mind to do Hikari from “This Ugly yet Beautiful Would” (Kono Minikuku mo Utsukushii Sekai). I’m hoping to see that there just mite be others out there maybe doing the same. Wishful thinking I know!!! I seem to always choose the odd ball Cosplay. But I guess that is what gets me all the attention. Sewing this out fit is going to be difficult but fun and I am sure it will look perfect when I'm done. Hope to see others out here and drop post. Maybe start setting up some plans or if you need any sewing help and prop ideas, or just general info maybe I could help. I have a big Imagination... :P

I hope you outfit turns out good. I have been wondering what I should cosplay as this year and you have given me an Idea to possibly do Takeru Takemoto.

:rolleyes: Wow that would be really cool and if you do the ED Awakened form, well thats even better. Maybe I can help give some Ideas or help in the construction if needed. My self I know I am doing hilari and I am sewing the outfit completely from scratch. I think am for godist of death attuid being that I don't think I am able to pull off the cutecy type, mite try through. :blush: hope you deside to go through with it. :P I know I am going to try to get on stage for the masquerade and it would be cool if Takeru was by my side for that and some photo's.

I heart this anime!!! <3<3 I actually have the butterfly part of the logo tattooed on my back ^^* (What? Its pretty! XD)
If I have enough money to fix my wig, I could bring back my Hikari cosplay.. My friend and I went as Hikari and Akari a couple years ago (before it was released here XD). I was trying to fix the wig earlier this year so that I could've brought it to this year's Acen, but I kind of murdered the wig... Heat damage sucks. **nodnod**

Ya, I think the wig and the gems are going to be the hardest things to find. Not to mention styleing it and making the hat. heat damage <_< yuck. Been working with wigs for many year. Just note Never blow dry or brush when wet any wig, hang dry and then brush out. Also when washing don't use real hot water or you'll have a mess. I normally do mine in the sink in warm water. I fill the sink up, add a little shampoo/conditioner and let it soke for 10 mins. Then rinse in warm water and hang dry on a hanger. Hope this INFO will help for future Cosplays...

Not really actually.. I made the gems out of Model Magic and molded them onto buttons, then painted with a mix of green and blue metallic paint, and sewed that onto the costume. For the wig, I went to maxwigs.com and ordered an orangey wig (I think I got it for around $30).. It was a really nice wig, but at the time I had no idea how to style bangs and such, so it looked sooo bad... (Link!) I had pieces in place with hair pins ^^* I found tutorials online earlier this year on how to style bangs, and I fixed my Princess Kakyuu wig perfectly! I just botched up my Hikari wig afterward, and now it has heat damage, and I need a new wig. u.u

Ok,, Got the white top and jacket dress of this outfit patterned out. :rolleyes: It's really cute looking and is ready to map out and cut the fabric. But I having a little touble figuring out the white and 3/4 purple dress part. Not sure if the white part is, part of the top and is a whole dress or if it is a seprate piece all together. Also if it is a full short dress or just a white front part over laying the purple. Any idea's any one? :P

Unfortunately I pick another one of those purple moon Anime -_- or just didn’t make my forum topic interesting enough <_< (time is a factor with making Cosplay from scratch). So the turn out on getting a group together failed :(

^_^ But thank for checking... look forward at seeing you at ACen :P .
