@Weisel Hehe. You're welcome ^,.,^
I like Nezumi's shirt from the manga much better. (The white one with black sleeves - http://i6.mangareader.net/no6/16/no6-3283557.jpg) It looks like the kind of thing I think is cool in general.

TBH, I don't think the people who designed the outfits for the anime were really that good at fashion to begin with. Eve's dress is endlessly disappointing to me. I mean, it's alright, but if I were to cosplay Eve I'm pretty sure I'd put him in something else. On one hand, it's well designed because it minimizes his male-ness (I know this because I have a friend who is a really great cross-dresser and she's looked at the clothing science behind it), but on the other hand, it's ugly. Of course, he's stuck in the West Block, and it's not like nice dresses grow on trees. But it doesn't look like they took that into account anyway.
Nezumi's coat/scarf combo is interesting, and Shion's outfit is alright (especially in the manga, where they gave him a beanie once). Safu, though... I've never seen a more generic-looking heroine in my life. Yeesh.

Oh, I've got a question. What do you do about Nezumi's pants? Usually people just sort of shred them in really fake and awkward looking ways. I mean, they looked fake and awkward in the anime, but that doesn't mean cosplayers have to play by those rules, hehe.

Also, thanks for making this tutorial even though you weren't feeling so great. It's much appreciated. =)
