@Vox: I agree wholeheartedly on the shirt. I actually had a dream two nights ago that I found a shirt just like that and bought it. I was really disappointed when I woke up.
And I feel like you're right about their fashion sense. I mean, nearly everything in the anime is stuff I wouldn't wear outside of cosplay. I do like how Shion and Nezumi look in the manga, though. Better shirt and I like the beige sweater on Shion a lot more. I do remember listening in the No.6 DVD commentary that they changed some colors to brighten up their designs for the anime... Not sure if that was a wise move, guys. (Of course I end up wearing it all anyway, psh.) And when I cosplay Eve, it's a variation on what Eve looks like in the manga, so it'll be pretty different from the anime dress. (I'm pretty sure I'd look bad in that dress, anyway, even if I did like it.) Everyone's just a lot prettier in the manga!
As for pants, that's something I want to improve on as well. The cuts are a little fake looking on mine, but definitely not the "VVV" kind of cut. I'm currently trying to rough up the edges more with a seam ripper to mess up the loose fibers even more. It seems to be working pretty well. I'll post a picture on my blog when I'm all done so you can see what it looks like in the end. So I guess my best advice on that is avoid the "VVV" pattern and use a seam ripper to make it look more "natural." If only Nezumi would just tuck his darn pant leg into his boot, it wouldn't look like that.
And I'm always happy to help with things like tutorials! I did consider putting it off a day when the headache started, but I really wanted to get something posted for you soon even if it wasn't perfect just so you'd have something to start with. I'm planning to improve what I have, though. My Nezumi wig just got a bath and is drying now! Anyway, I really really love to be able to help with cosplay stuff since I love it so much! Plus then you don't have to spend two years of trial and error on your cosplays.

Okay, I'm rambling. I think it's because I'm hungry. Maybe.
