I think I got 2-3 votes. Most someone got was 20, followed by 14, and 10ish... The least was 1. Everyone could vote three times.
:: shrugs:: I didn't really expect to win, since this was a last minute cosplay bit, but at least someone recognized who I was without me telling them, which is good. I forgot the small bit of tape Ritsuka usually has on his face though, and I think there's a number of pictures with me with my glasses on. ^^;; And Ritsuka doesn't have glasses - so whoops~ And I don't know how to pose.
Surprisingly enough, there was someone else who did a Loveless character: Yuiko
I think next year, I'll be doing Kaitou Kid from Conan. Hopefully. Takes time and planning though - as there's some parts that'll need to be handmade, instead of mostly bought, like this years costume.
Total cost for the costume this year:
$29 (tail, ears) + $10 (blue sweater - was supposed to be a jacket, but we couldn't find one) + $3 (white strip of fabric/thick ribbon stuff + 50 safety pins) = $42
Not too bad, but... still, kinda expensive in my mind. At least for a single event sorta-thing. I did find the tail material at the store (Joanne, on Neil, north of Bradley, right before you get to the highway), but honestly, I don't think I have the time or skills to sew my own. But they've got different colors (light brown, pink, white, etc).. and oh so many other things...
