Knives Chau from Scott Pilgrim reading Scott Pilgrim.

The photos were taking in a public library. I was sure we'd be asked to leave but somehow everyone turned a blind eye and we had a great time :D

Scott Pilgrim is kind of the best comic book ever. If you haven't read it, go buy a copy now!

or at least watch the movie trailer!



Knives Chau is the girl Scott is dating at the beginning of the series. She's in high school, and too young for him. She is 17 years old.

There are not a lot of color pictures of her and as far as I know, the only official one with this hair style is this one:

And her outfit in the actual comic is different - all black - so I only used this as a guideline.

This is mostly a closet cosplay. I bought the arm things especially for the costume. The scarf was hand knit by my roommate and me, and I swapped out a section of the wefts on a black wig with prewefted red for the hair.

Really? Huh. Well, it has been awhile since I read it. But still, Knives reading S.P.? Still 4th breakage in my book.

Oh, definitely. I wanted to play around with breaking the 4th wall since Scott Pilgrim is so self-referential :)
