Shakugan no Shana: Melon Bread by Kurai-Hisaki Shakugan no Shana: Melon Bread by Kurai-Hisaki
"Melon-Pan!"

:heart:


I think I'm short enough to pull of a Shana, but sadly enough - I couldn't stand my long hair, so I cut it a month ago. Now it's too short for Shana - but at least yay for real hair!

Hopefully when Fall '09 comes around, my hair will be long enough to pull off a better Shana. Of course, I won't have hair down to my ankles, but hopefully at least to my waist.

We will be doing a shoot with her Katana - so look forward to that!

This was for a picnic, so we weren't really allowed to bring any weapons to the site. Also, I had extra fabric left over from my bow - so I decided that I'd just make a Melon Bread for a prop instead. After all, bread is harmless - unless you eat too much! *haha* I also used the wrong colour for the bow/lines on the uniform T_T *sniff, cries* I mean, I like how the colours match and all, but it's not exactly the right colour for her uniform.

Also didn't have the time to complete Alastor either - it's half done. =(
Fail.

At any rate, the costume didn't take too long to make, and was easy to prep for! It was comfortable to wear the whole day at the picnic. Don't know why my socks are all bunched up and weird like that, but oh well!

The next Shana will definately be better!

Worn again at FanExpo 2009

Ah, cool xD

Thanks for saying hi on facebook first xD Or else I would have never found you! xP

Oh yeah! Been meaning to ask... what's ACG all about?

Not a problem! XD It's always great to meet fellow cosplayers!

ACG is basically a non-profit organization that promotes ACG (anime, comic, and gaming!) XD I heard they have events and contests with prizes and stuff.

I recently discovered it myself too, so I haven't really learned much about them. They do have a FB group though.

Ah! I just sent you a facebook message asking all these stupid questions haha. Hmm I somewhat joined ACG I think... =.= facebook and dA, dunno if that's called joining though lol. I'd like to help out if I had the time, it looks fun.

Ah, I added your cosplay acc too xP, just because I like looking at cosplays more than art at the moment. Though I do enjoy photography too =).

Lol... Edits!
You can just slant the Kakashi picture a bit... and clone the melonpan in LOL.

Or maybe... once I make a huge melon bread, I will just do a photoshoot where I throw it at another cosplayer hahahaha.
Maybe the VK cosplays =.=..
What kinda food does Yuuki eat.... nothing in particular =S hmm...
I just know Rima and Shiki and Pocky, but I don't recall Zero or Yuuki eating anything haha.

Kaien cooking style?
Sounds familiar, don't remember what it meant haha.

Yeah scary serious face, maybe I can draw a Chibi of that happening. Keke, something chucked at Zero, that'd be so cute lol.

Sigh*... Naruto picture I started 2 months ago is still unfinished... gah =.=
I need to finish it!!!! I hate colouring lol.

Haha, I tried to colour Kakashi and ruined his hair...
It's now a dark grey instead of silver LOL....
Maybe I can photoshop it when I get to scanning it in... haha
COLOURING IN THE DARK IS A BADDD IDEA!!! LOL

Ah cool, ohhh right!! Kaien is his name or something! LOL, I keep forgetting I just call him chairman cross or something or "father" hahahaha. He's funny. I really should watch VK again... I hope the mangas done when my work term rolls around, then I can just go crazy when reading it!! :giggle:

So pretty!! You look just like Shana-- complete with the メロンパン(:
The shade of green is correct, and the yellow bow changes colour according to Itou-sensi's drawings or anime references. Your costume looks so awesome!! <3 (favs it a million times ^^)

Thanks so much for the :+fav:!
Thanks so much for the compliments on the costume!
Haha, my mom's like... it's poorly made! Don't wear it! Haha, but I'm like NOOOO I'm wearing it dang it! Lol. She helped me too, and she isn't proud of her own makings haha. She's probably too picky about stuff, she's like... that's gonna fall apart LOL. She was surprised that it looked so good in pics.

In reality, the flap was falling off =.=.... it's not attached to the collar since I can't fit my head over it if I attached it LOL. Another mistake by me =.=... I made it twice and it still didn't fit. fail LOL.
I should probably put that in the comments since its funny haha.

Does it really? The colour of the bow changes?
I always thought that it was a bit tanned/ light brown, and not light yellow. But I saw the light yellow in a picture where Shana was glowing with her fire hair, and it made her bow light yellow, and I just got the fabric for it by accident.
Sigh* I should print out coloured pictures next time for reference pics LOL.
