Skirt ~ Boohoo
Braces ~ ebay
Boots ~ ebay
Umbrella ~ Sports Direct via ebay
And now for something slightly different. Last Sunday I attended London's MCM Comic Con 2013, this time was my third year going. Since the last one, my friend Dan and I had had the plan to go as Totoro and Satsuki from the eternally wonderful (and slightly surreal) Studio Ghibli film, My Neighbour Totoro. This was perfect since a) it wasn't a challenging costume for me and b) my hair was going to be short. I had vaguely planned on sewing the skirt myself but in the end, having left no where near enough time for anything, I bought everything. To my dismay the braces and skirt did not match and try as I might (tea, felt tip ink and food colouring were all tried) I could not darken them so sadly that was an annoying detail I had to get over. If anyone knows how to dye cotton elastic I'd be grateful to know...the internet tells me it's impossible.
All in all Expo was really good, and I was a lot less nervous than last time, which was nice (last time I was super anxious and the crowds sort of freaked me out). As usual I spent a majority of time at the Artist's Alley and experienced my first strawberry flavoured shaved ice and chilled cream filled pancakes. Dan nearly died of overheating so Bekki (who also came with us) and I forced him to chill out for a bit, but to be honest I think we were all getting pretty damn sore, both of them had been there the whole weekend as well - I don't think I could have survived. Now it is time to begin planning the next cosplay for October! Bekki is also the one who took the photos which is why I have deviated from the usual style of my outfit posts.
As always, I'm sorry I haven't been posting very regularly, being in three plays whilst revising for exams has taken up a lot of my time. We also got a new kitten who I will be posting about very soon! Kitten spam! Also, I got featured on Fashion Rocks My Socks! It totally made my day and on the same day one of my lipstick reviews got featured on Powder Doom as well! So hello to all my lovely new followers! ♥

A boom box passed our way so I had to break out into all singing, all dancing Satsuki.
