'Tying' Things Up

Since there is only little over a week before Fanime, I thought I'd give you a final update on my cosplay: everything is finished. Yes, my costume is complete, including the most important item for my roll as a suicidal teacher: a noose.

You would be surprised how easy it is to tie a noose. There are even plenty of sites online to help you out. The hard part is trying to explain to people why you're making a noose. I went to the hardware store to buy rope, but there are some things you shouldn't say, including: "What's the best rope to make a noose with?" or "I need some rope to make a noose." It's like going to the gun counter of Walmart, picking up and inspecting one of the guns, then asking where they stock the anti-depressants.  So I just went back to the place where they kept the rope and bought about 8 feet (If I said 13 feet like a regular noose they might have gotten suspicious.)  Luckily I don't actually need to to hang myself up.

Sadly I'm not going to post any picture of the full outfit until after the convention.  Only one of my friends, the one who is cosplaying with me, has seen it.  For those of you who are wondering, he is going as Kyon from Haruhi.
Being bored was never this epic.
As for me, I've been preparing my lines for my character, including:
SHINDARA DOU SURU? -What if I had died???
Ittan desu ka?  (Talking to the stalker girl) You were there?  (To be followed up with "Yes, always")
And of course, ZETSUBOUSHITA!!- I'm in despair!!!

    Should have just gone with the 13ft. What they gunna do? REFUSE to sell it to you? They can't do that.
