It's been 3 years but I FINALLY FINISHED ANOTHER RYOKO COSTUME YOU GUYZ
A lot of folks didn't seem to recognize this design, but it's her "battlecape" garb from one of the artbooks: sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-s…
Do not ask me why she's missing a pant leg ANIME IS WEIRD.
I forgot how fun and relaxing it is to cosplay Ryoko! All her outfits are mad comfortable, and I can be as loud and weird and intoxicated as I want to without ever being out of character. I can't believe that wig is still as photogenic and poofy as it was back when I first wore it 5 years ago!
Title comes from a line in Metric's "Speed the Collapse", which reminds me a lot of the trials and tragedies the Masaki household goes through in the course of the series. This is probably just My Feels talking, but there's a lot of emotion in this show that often gets overlooked in lieu of all the cheesecake and slapstick. Ignore me, just TALKIN' BOUT MUSIC.
Costume made and worn by myself.
