Last October 2016, we had a cosplay event at work. Employees and their kids were asked to come in Anime costumes and have fun with the program and treats prepared by the generous people from the company.
Of course, I signed up my daughter to the event. I had a lot of ideas in mind for her costume, especially something Card Captor Sakura… but then I received a notice from the company that we did not make it to the cut. So there, my world crumbled down to pieces. Haha. Kidding. But needless to say, I stopped making all efforts at making her a costume since we wouldn’t be going to the event anyway.
HOWEVER!!! 3 DAYS before the event, my former manager informed me to ignore the decline notice since they reserved special slots for us, and so the event continues and so does the excitement. But my world crumbled the second time after realizing we were only 3 days from the event but I didn’t have anything prepared yet.
So in a rush, I had to come up with something. I wanted it to be unique. It doesn’t matter if only a few recognizes it. I decided, I wanted to make her Mikasa from the Anime Attack on Titan.
So with little budget and little time on hand, I DIY’ed her costume and here’s how she looked.
Pretty fun ei? I dunno about you but I really loved it. Sure it looked really handmade, but I guess my daughter can rock anything she wears! (Haha, yeah, ako na ang number 1 fan ng anak ko.) But really… isn’t she lovely? cute? charming? cool?
And to top it all, I was really happy that she liked her costume and she went to the event with me, “in character!”
So that’s it for now. Please let me know what you think!
To God be the glory!
