KnB: Aida Riko I by Aigue-Marine KnB: Aida Riko I by Aigue-Marine
➡ INTERESTED IN PROGRESS PICTURES, COSTUME PLANS AND COSPLAY SNAPSHOTS? I'M ON FACEBOOK TOO!!!

Bonjour Mesdames et Mesieurs! How are you? Long time no see!
Good news! I am finally done with university! My bachelor thesis is finished and handed in which means that I am finally free again to engage in costume making, writing, making music, reading and being creative! Thanks to this huge amount of free time I also discovered a lovely anime called Kuroko no Basket.
Alright, that's not true. I found out about Kuroko no Basket months ago, but I fell truly in love with it when I was supposed to focus on specialized literature and boring scientific text for my dissertation. I hadn't made a costume from an anime or an manga in months. Riko was the perfect character to get back in touch with this genre again.

What I really like about Kuroko no Basket is that all characters of Seirin get an equal amount of screentime. I have read and watched many sport manga and anime in the past. They usually focus on the protagonist and his best friend. If there's a team, the series tend to focus on the members of the team, not on the side-characters like managers, coaches, former team- and classmates though. And that's what's so cool about Kuroko no Basket. Although Riko is a girl and not a player - obviously - she's a part of the team. She's the coach. She's in charge. She is to be taken seriously. She is not a comedic relief or moeblob character. She is important. And nobody fucks with her. Nobody.

The costume itself was very easy to make. I finished it in about three days. Besides that it's almost completely made out of left-over fabric. Consequently it was rather cheap.
The short wig is extremely comfortable. No tangled strands, no brushing, no weird strands in your face. Amazing! I just love being Riko. By any chance is there somebody interested in cosplaying Hyuuga or Teppei at some point? That would be really cool.

Oh, and because I really like Kuroko no Basket I'll wear another costume from the series at CosDay in July in Frankfurt. This time it's not Riko though. See for yourself... [link]

Congratulations on finishing the thesis; I'm sure that's a big relief. Now I guess you'll have more time to work through those 1500 messages in your inbox huh? I think 16 of those are mine if you include this one. Sorry about that!
