I wish my life story is like anime. It's way better and adventurous! :D <- I think about this every minute of the day and end up making myself cry because of how much my life sucks. It should just be an anime.
When adapting an anime outfit for RL stockings are a good replacement for tall boots, because thigh high boots just give the wrong impression unless your cosplaying. This look is especially nice with a long jacket on.
