as I told you, I made a Cosplay of Shirahoshi from the Manga and Anime "One Piece".
The Animagic weekend was really hot and on saturday it even was 33°C !!
So it was a reeeeally good decision to cosplay the cute mermaid. She only wears a binkini, her fins and some earrings. Because of her light pink hair I had to wear a wig, too. I was suprised not to die under this long wig ^^ I also wear contact lenses in blue ^_^ Shirahoshi has sooo wonderful blue eyes. We took amazing pictures in the river called "Rhein". Shirahoshi cries in every situation She's a bit shy and afraid of everything ^^ So I also cryed the whole day.. no, just kidding Hihi
It was soo refreshing to put my legs..oh.. I mean fins :D into the cool water.
The only thing that was a bit difficult, was to walk in the skinny skirt.
When I sewed the fin, I noticed that I can't walk in it... so I cut it in the middle and added Velcro tape on the borders. If someone wanted to take a photo I put the fin's lower part with the skirt together.
My boyfriend Thiemo was my cosplaypartner ^_^ He also cosplayed a character from One Piece. It was Luffy, the main character ! He looked soo cute in it :3
His cosplay I also made by myself. For the shirt I used the patterns out of the Otome no sewing book for Lolita clothes. Actually the patterns were for a blouse ^^
