Project Stocking: First Test Impressions

Even though I’m not even sure I’ll make it to Ohayocon this year, one doesn’t wait until the last minute to begin testing parts of a new cosplay project! So today I took some time to see how the shoes, stockings, dress, and blouse of my Stocking crossplay were going to work.

I’m still waiting for the wigs, so I just used my black one as a stand-in. The blouse is also proving problematic. I need a tuxedo blouse with a Peter Pan collar ideally. But I haven’t been able to find that combo yet and may have to make that myself. So for today’s test, I used my Mikuru blouse to get an idea of how things will fit.

The results were quite good! While not perfect, now I know that my basic plan will work. And with that in mind I’m going to redouble my efforts to find the right blouse or pattern to make it. Sometimes I don’t know whether to laugh or cry that I seem to make a prettier girl than guy…Naaah, it’s more fun being pretty!
