After having my last blog post with my cosplay choices, I've decided to pick Tsumugi Kotobuki from K-On!~ So, to go with my new cosplay in-the-making, I made my profile avatar/header/profile pic to match. It's weird going from Yoko to Mugi but hey I'll get used to it. I think.


Thanks to all who have viewed my Yoko cosplay updates! I hope you enjoy the next series of cosplay bloggin' <3

So now I'm in a slight dilemma. Which version of Mugi should I do? At first, I was going to do the "Don't Say Lazy" ED version but then I stared at her hair... it's in a weird, funky bun so I'll pass. I have no idea how I'd do that. At least with Yoko, I could just do a ponytail cheat thing but I don't think I can cheat a hair bun.

Losty (Agent_Lost) has kindly reminded me about the retro outfit that appears on episode 6. It's quite a summer-y outfit if I do say so myself. For those that don't know or remember, this episode is about the school festival. While they perform, the scene cuts to them performing on outdoors stages while running away from cops.

So now, onto my two choices: School uniform versus retro outfit! DUN DUUUN DUUUUUUUN.


I like both outfits so I'm not sure which one to do. Yes I could do both but I'd rather stick with one for now. If I find it in me, I'll do both. They both are relatively easy to do so that isn't a factor at all. So which version should I do, retro or uniform?

Going by the images you posted... I vote for Retro... looks cuter, I think, and "livelier". The uniformed Mugi looks more serious and less "fun".

ok let see, one more pouch Retro look. The thing that I have against the uniform is that it not really unique. Also are planning to get some Keytar to go with the custom.

I'm musically challenged so I won't buy a real one but I'll probably make a prop version at the very least. It's a cool prop to have.
In random tidbits, I did try learning guitar at one point. The calluses were not fun.

Wow it was practically a landscape (minus viiral, guess you're in the minority this time.)

Well after seeing the responses, I bought fabric for the retro one. I won't be starting until next weekend though since I'm fairly busy this weekend.

Thanks for all the responses everyone! The next blog update shall be about the mock-up of the outfit. Stay tuned~

I think it's about how recognizable you want to be. If oyu want people to be like, "OMG, LEMME PHOTO YOU!", then I'd say the uniform. It's up to you though.
