Personal Thoughts:
As soon as I saw this maid uniform (well, waitress in the show, but c'mon, it looks like a maid dress) I knew I had to cosplay it. It is just SHEER perfection in its design and I knew the tailoring would be a fun challenge for me! I'm not usually one to do big and flashy costumes or super detailed and complicated things, but when it comes to sewing, if I'm REALLY inspired to make a piece, I pour tons of hours into getting the look just right, and doing as clean of work as possible. (Not counting my "gesture" costumes, where I just blow steam and sew carefree, hahaha.)

nAnyways, this project was a huge labor of love and took a while to get to the final product, but I'm super proud of how it came out! I of course saved the pattern for this so I could do another Neko girl in the future. Although Maple and Coconut are my faves, followed closely by Azuki, I think Vanilla will be my next one, since she'll look so cute with Chocola, and I'm a weird completionist about character outfit variants!

nBy the way, the pattern is available for sale in my Etsy shop for digital download! There's one version with ALL of the pieces and accessories (minus the bell and tights/stockings), and one with just the accessories, so everything minus the skirt and blouse/vest.

Wig Review
Wish the wig were a tad bit lighter brown, but Chocola's exact hair color is really difficult to find, because it reads as dark brown, but that's because the nature of the whole show and art style is very pastel, so not sure if a lighter brown would work on me in reality or not. Hmmmmm
