2016 is almost over, and what a year it’s been!
This year I made 9 new costumes, flew over to the Netherlands for Clara Cow’s Cosplay Cup with PopcornKuma, and somehow qualified for European Cosplay Gathering. It’s been a heck of a ride! If you’d like to know more, please read on.
It’s that time again! And this time, it’s a big one! Following my time at AnimeCon a few people have asked how I went about making my Sumomo costume from Chobits so I’m here to explain just that!

Sumomo was my costume for Clara Cow’s Cosplay Cup with PopcornKuma as Chii. First and foremost, we wanted to make costumes we’d enjoy bringing to life and of all the ideas we came up with, this was the one we kept going back to and liked the most. I’ve always been a fan of Chobits; way back in the day (around 2001-2002, when the anime was first announced), the wonderful art style and iconic characters were a big influence to me, so getting to cosplay from it at long last was a big plus for me!
AnimeCon was last weekend and damn – what an adventure! This year I got to attend as a guest as part of Clara Cow’s Cosplay Cup with PopcornKuma where we represented the UK. Our costumes were Chii and Sumomo from Chobits!
