MARIA KURENAI from VAMPIRE KNIGHT
why? I really like the manga and all the characters. A friend of mine was planning a whole group and so I decided to cosplay Maria because I like evil characters~
costs? ~50€
time? 4 days
status? active
how? I really thought the whole thing would be put together easily. *_* hahaha~ That was not the case. The pattern for the blazer-thing was harder to craft than I thought and attaching all the black lining was very time consuming. I chose black velvet for that.
happy? Many people thought the uniform was bought, so I take that as a compliment. XD I really love wearing this costume, except for the boots (which are 2 sizes too small) it is very comfortable.
