This costume was ridiculously easy, but I did spend an exorbitant amount of time and money trying to dye cotton jersey knit the right color for her blouse and tights. I was living in Vegas at the time that I made this, and did not have the convenience of the Los Angeles Fabric district knit selection. I actually ended up giving up that project and drove 5 hours to Los Angeles to buy $3/yard fabric in the exact color I needed. It was ridiculous. I loved cosplaying as this character though. I wore this costume in both Germany and Japan for various cosplay events, and it was so comfortable and stores so nice and small! While in Japan, I even wore it without the wig around Tokyo, and looked pretty stylish in doing so! Sheryl was my favorite from this series, and the reason why I stuck with it to the end.
