Woo! :D

I'm still working on a pattern for the blazer. >_<
I might do the summer one too if it doesn't turn out right.

The summer one is easy for Minorin. It's basically her winter uniform just...without the blazer and her sleeves rolled up.
I think they're way easier seeing as Taiga's is just a short sleeve shirt and a creamy jumper thing.

Btw, how tall are you? I'm 5"5.

Yeah, it would be sooo much easier :3 the problem is I get cold very easily. D: So I might end up making the blazer after all.

Oh, I'm 5"2. : D

I was trying to convince a friend to come as Ami so that we had the whole girl team but she said no. K-ON has kinda downsized ToraDora because they came out around the same time which is rather upsetting.

Aww... I don't think I can convince any of my friends to cosplay any of the characters either. =[

There's still a few months to go, we might get more people interested by then.

Hm, possibly. Well, at least we have a Taiga and Minori x3 Maybe we'll see some random cosplayers walking around in ToraDora uniforms.

I'm pretty sure I'm going as Taiga on both days now. :3

I don't think I'll have enough money or time to make another cosplay.

University dawns! O:

I'm 18. =] Just finished college! But I might have to do another year of college if I don't get the grades I need to get into my Uni course.

College is dead fun! Until you get to the second year... ]:

What courses are you taking? :3

I'm doing graphic design. I'm 16 but they said that I could be the youngest. They put me into the lowest level because they say I'm far too young for the level that I applied for. I got my exam results the other day and I'm okie for it.

I'm sure you'll do great! What is it you're doing?

Btw, are you doing the blazer? I found a red on in the British Heart Foundation store in our town xD

I took a Graphics AS level last year - I might be able to complete it sometime next year. x3

Are you taking a BTEC in Graphic design then? :D

I'll hopefully be taking the Game Art course at De Montfort. I'm kinda scared about going to University though... Just have to await the results from my A Levels now DD:

I found some red fabric in a store that's perfect for the blazer, so I might as well go ahead and make it.

See, I can't MAKE things but I might try for my Akira costume.

Ah, up here I'm sitting an NC. I applied for an HNC, but they decided to keep me in an NC because of my age and because they didn't see my portfolio from high school [it was sent away to the exam board].

It's gonna be a bit hellish trying to modify a blazer pattern - I've never tried to make a blazer before but hopefully it won''t look like a complete mess.

I tried to see if I could have a go at making the pattern, but that failed really badly xD

Gah! I hate it when work is sent to the exam board! D< I was missing half my work once when I had an interview at college.

It seems like my work is /always/ sent away to me moderated. Or kept in college to be moderated. ]: Happened three years in a row so far.

Jees, sucky ;~;
I thought I wasn't gonna get accepted because my folio wasn't with me. I was pretty happy when she said I was in.

...pattern? [NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOB].
I just tried on my cosplay and it's pretty much done. Just need to add the buttons to the blazer and then get brown shoes. I'm just gonna dye my hair the night before.
