Character: Chrome Dokuro – Ten years later / TYL (Katekyo Hitman Reborn)
Up until today this is the only Cosplay that took longer to plan than to actually sew. I always loved the ten years later versions of the characters and cursed the fact that Amano never really showed Tsuna as normally he was “my” character when we did group cosplays.
After I decided to do the Seven Gods of Luck Version of Chrome I thought, well then let’s go for her TYL Version as well.
But her casual outfit was just ... well, boring. And since all the other characters mostly wear suits I wanted to do her formal outfit as well. Bad luck as it’s only shown from her belly upwards. What followed was a lot of brainstorming and analyzing that one existing picture. I asked about everyone who I knew knew the series about what they thought she might be wearing.
I’m quite happy with the result although it became surprisingly difficult to get enough black lace. For future reference: Obviously it is a lot easier to use white one ...
