Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2
Probably my most ambitious cosplay to date. The shoes alone are scary, 5 inches of pure torture. Plus the shorts are just a pain. Even though there are some parts that drive me insane, I really like this costume. It took about 5 months to complete, and it was worth every second of it. My mom and I took a jacket pattern and tore it apart and redesigned it to fit C.C. The "flappy bits" as they have been dubbed, were made through trail and error until we were happy. The collar and the gold trim on the top of the shirt part are a separate piece that is held on with a couple of snaps. The design on the front is appliqued on. It was my first time appliqueing anything, and I think it turned out great!
