I put this together reeeeally quickly for A-Kon (Anime Con) Dallas this past weekend and it needs a LOT of tweaks - the buttons need to be fixed up with chrysanthemums (and I probably need to get a different size of them - finding info on this uniform has been next to impossible for me!), the bottom coat skirts need to be fixed up so they're square rather than rounded, I need proper Japanese medal ribbons (I have no idea what these medal ribbons mean) and I need a dress hat(!!) but here's a first look at my character "Captain Kit Hasegawa" of the Imperial Japanese Navy. (The character's partly a joke name and partly named after Captain Kiichi Hasegawa, third commanding officer of the carrier Akagi who helmed her from Pearl Harbor to the Darwin raid just before Midway).

With a model of the carrier Soryu which I won as a prize on an online wargame forum for the miniatures wargame, Axis&Allies War at Sea. Ironically, I received this miniature on June 4th - the day that the historical Soryu was sunk!!!
At A-Kon, June 2nd. My wife, Susan, is the Pokemon trainer at my left (to the right of the photo).
