I finally sat myselft down to watch Toradora, and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. Taiga is my favorite character from the series. A friend of mine said that she would probably cosplay Minori if I did Taiga, which is what prompted me to make the costume.

The costume was put together very last minute before AB, so it didn't come out as nicely as I would have liked. The white button down shirt is an old shirt of mine. The ribbon is well... a ribbon. The socks were bought at American Apparel, while the sword was bought off of eBay, and the wig was purchased off of Taobao. The skirt was made out of some cheap cotton that was double layered. The jacket is made out of Galaxy twill and it is lined. If I ever get a chance, I'll probalby remake the jacket since I am unahppy with it.
