General Comments:

Haine was another one of my spur of the moment cosplay projects. I had just started reading the manga and I liked the character designs so I figured "why not?". I'm not a fan of the finished product as it felt like one thing after another would go wrong. The only part of the entire outfit that I ended up being satisfied with was the skirt. The one good thing that came out of making this costume was that I learned how to tie a tie.

Costume Construction:

Blouse: The blouse underneath was an old school shirt.

Jacket: The jacket was made out of white and black polyester. The trim was made using bias tape.

Skirt & tie: The skirt and the tie were made out of some unknown mix of materials fabric.

Wig Styling:

The wig used was originally bought for Bisuke, but it was too cheap to style properly for its original intended use so it ended up being used for Haine.
