"I do plead
no guilty. I am wholly innocent of such wickedness"
[Mary Bradbury, September 9, 1692]
and here comes the cosplay guides for those who want to dress up like Sena
Robin. since i'm a big fan of Robin, i had tried the cosplay in X' maz 2003
and 2004, recently in my aunt's wedding (March 13, 2005). indeed it is the
best cosplay i ever had (since my sailor suit when i was 12 ^_^). everyone
said it looks good on me, definitely perfect for gothic lover
like me. so if you have the same style with Robin, don't be hesitate to try
this beautiful dress.
rule is the dark gray long dress as you can see on the right >> actually
there's nothing particular about this dress, as you can see, it is just
like an ordinary nun dress with rippled modification on
the end of the sleeves. point to the neck, there's a white lace around the
tip. about the skirt, it is a wide full clock-style, bigger the clock more
ripples you got. however since the original dress in very long, the skirt
length is over the feet makes it unpractical, so i cut it somehow that it
won't make me get tripped. the total length of fabric i used is 3 x 1,5
ms (it may vary depends on your height and size).
the black vest which looks simple but as i had proved,
it's the most important part because it will make the dress looks nicer.
crucial point is the bosom cut, it's bellow the chest level. and don't miss
the buttons from the cut end to the hip. the skirt is knee-deep with shorter
clock-style, and let the cut below the buttons open. approximate fabic length
is 1 - 2 ms only
dress is done, let's head to the accessories. start with hairdo,
paint your hair blond or leave it as original if you dislike blond color
(like me). at least your hair should be below shoulder so you can arrange
it. divide your hair with a comb into two parts almost equal, then tie it
up into 2 low knots with long dark purple ribbons. let some hair untied,
it doesn't need to be neat anyway.
most significant one is Robin's amulet. i couldn't find
it anywhere (maybe you can buy it via e-bay). about the shape you can clearly
see it in the anime's ending clip. if you have a lot of money, you can order
it to a jeweler (please don't ask me about the fee)
but not least, something unseen but important, boots. yup,
Robin always wears nice winter boots (i strictly recommended, not a suede!).
however, if you feel uncomfortable with boots, you may change it with low
heel shoes or something else less feminine. for the socks, you can wear
anything since it's not visible but it will be better if black or dark stockings.
that's my cosplay guides, unfortunately i couldn't attach my picture in Sena
Robin cosplay since i had vowed not to display my true appearance here ^ ^.
yosh, have a nice cosplay!
