Here's a photo of the Usagi school uniform costume that I debuted at Anime North. I didn't make the costume and I'm not going to name the seller that I bought the costume from because it has been a very negative experience. My costume turned out ok, but a second school uniform costume that I ordered for a friend was not at all as the listing described and I'm still sorting out if the seller will allow a return for a refund of the costume. I had to replace the front bow on my costume as the bow the seller sent me was not the right size. This bow was from my old Hitomi costume and one of the snaps was letting go when I was doing this shoot so I apologize for my bow looking a little droopy. That didn't keep me from smiling! I think I look a little cheesy here, but c'est la vie!
I'm planning to make a new blouse for the costume to Cosplay the summer version of the uniform, but that might not happen until later this year or next year. I am quite happy with the skirt. I did alter some shoes for the costume by adding elastics, but I wish I had purchased shoes with a bit of a heel to them. These shoes are flat and a little too tight so they weren't that comfortable. ~_~ I have a pair of black high heels that I could add elastic to and use instead that may in fact be more comfortable.
This costume taught me to be more cautious when buying a commission. I definitely only trust my close friends, but I did have fun Cosplaying Usagi. I love the look of her school uniform and I think when I make a new blouse I'll be a lot happier with the costume.
