My daughter (who is 17 this year) is very very into anime and every April we take her to a convention in down town Seattle...Sakuracon.  She is sooo spoiled because her mommy (Me) knows how to sew and I generally can create whatever she comes up by mashing patterns together or by faking it without a pattern.  This year she wanted to go as a character called Stocking.  She had a friend she was meeting who was supposed to go as the partner to this cosplay called Panties.  (I know, it sounds bad, right?)  So she shows me the pictures...and then, bless her heart, tells me that she doesn't want the really really short skirt because she doesn't want to look like a hoochie!  I love my daughter!  So here is what the outfit looked like as anime and what we came up with.  I sort of used a pattern....but this particular cosplay was mostly a fly by the seat of my pants situation!


I run with scissors.....it makes me feel DANGEROUS!!

Your daughter makes for an adorable Stocking! Cheesy

The costume looks great, too. I love how you even decided to modify the length of the skirt based on your daughter's suggestion. (I know I couldn't cosplay Stocking or Panty due to their short skirts and such.)

Nice to see a parent who isn't completely against cosplaying skanky characters. Just need to mod them a little. XD

AHHHH! That's my favorite ecchi ever! She looks very beautiful as Stocking! This is an amazing rendering of her Angel costume!

@Ms.Bonnie Stocking wasn't the skank, that was Panty. Stocking was throw from heaven because of her sweets addiction Smiley But her bondage fetish didn't really have to do with anything Smiley
