Madoka Magica: Homura Akemi by VandorWolf Madoka Magica: Homura Akemi by VandorWolf
Searching for the path to save you from a fate of despair.

Okay, so this was a very impromtu cosplay.

My friend, =Saiaphi has been trying to get me to watch/cosplay from Madoka for awhile now, but there just never seemed to be time. However, he is staying at my place during the two weekends of local convention-age so we watched it last night. My god. Not what I was expecting lol. I thought it was going to be a cutesy, happy anime then suddenly heads roll and all hell breaks loose.
My favourite character is Homura and, lucky for me, =Saiaphi just cosplayed her (and a male version) to AR so he let me borrow his costume for some awesome cosplay times :D It's a bit big on me, but I'll be making my own for when we get our Puella Magi Madoka Magica group together.

Myself as Homura Akemi from Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Costume belongs to =Saiaphi

Love the cosplay.
I'm making a homura cosplay right now, but the outer coat is too long.
How can I shorten it?

Wow, late reply so I don't know if you need the tip anymore, but you essentially would have to cut the bottom then fold the hems. Then you topstitch over the folded hems, sewing them together. Hope that makes sense!
And thank you!

I wanna cosplay her too but I don't know the materials for the costume.
:iconohgodwhymemeplz: as if you're gonna answer my quiestion = ="

lol I always try to answer comments. It might just take me a little while because I'm not on the internet all that often anymore.
As for materials, you can use a nice cotton twill. For the coloured hems, you can use bias tape.
Hope that helps a bit and good luck making the costume!

Why does it always seem to be that when someone tries to get someone into Madoka they put it off and then when they watch it their all like, WOA.

And, a super quicky question, who's all being in the Madoka group and who is playing who!?!!?

VandorWolf Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012
Haha I have no idea. Guess it just doesn't really have a gripping plot until you sit down and watch it. Then it just sucks you in.
As for the group, we are still discussing characters and who will be cosplaying who.

Ahhh episode 3. Technically heads didn't roll. That certain someone definitely got ahead of herself though. The candy's a little bit sweet for her taste. Let say she couldn't keep her head in the game :icontrollrollplz:. Pretty much every episode after that is a shocker too. Ending song is great and the lyrics became much more poignant as we go through the series.

I love HomuHomu, especially after DAT REVELATION. You should try cosplaying that version too.

I had the same experience with Madoka. The reason I watched it was because I didn't understand why so many guys cosplayed (crossplayed!) it last Animecon. Now I understand why so many guys watch/cosplay it.

Anyway: You look absolutely great in this cosplay. You've captured the character very well with the pose and expression.

I've seen quite a few guys cosplay Madoka Magica girls at cons by now. It has actually gotten normal to see a male cosplayer pull off a good Madoka cosplay here. Most guys who do that are serious traps with serious make-up skills and the only way to find out if you are looking at a guy or a girl is by asking. XD
I don't know if that is happening everywhere around the world or if I just live in a weird country...
