No one in Japan has this color naturally. NO ONE!
Soooo yeah. Me. As Momo. That's really all I have to say. >_> Though I guess now could be a good time to discuss the trials of schoolgirl cosplay.
Despite how simple this costume is, everything was a pain in the REAR to find.
I must have scoured the WHOLE INTERNET looking for a royal blue sweater vest. In the end, it was my mom who found some online in LIGHT blue. Luckily for me, they were like, 90% cotton instead of being acrylic, so I dyed them the darker shade of blue you see before you.
What's even MORE impossible to find is baby blue and royal blue striped plaid, so again, I made my own. I found some baby blue plaid with BROWN stripes at my grandma's house and then after sewing the skirt, I painstakingly masked off and painted each and every stripe with acrylic craft paint. It took WEEKS (mostly because I have no attention span), whereas for Velvy's, I was like "Hey, wait, PAINT PEN!" And hers took a few hours. XDDD
Another problem I had was finding long blue knee socks. Everytime I'd buy a pair, I'd open the package and try them on, only to find they only went halfway up my calf. No good. I went through about 3 pairs, before I found some suitable ones that were actually too dark (looked black instead of navy). Then when Velv got hers at Walmart, she got both the perfect length AND color AND they were tight and stayed up extremely well, so I swiped the second pair that came in the package. ;D
I also bought 2 pairs of BLACK loafers from Goodwill before I came across the perfect pair of brown ones at Emmy's.
So although this costume appears simple, appearances can be misleading. The only easy part about it was the white polo shirt. I have like, 20 because we had to wear them as part of the uniform in high school. XD Ok, done!
