i think i started with her white top first, 2 layers as usual.
finished top with the yellow lining
then the cloak. it's actually amended from my old ginshu costume haha. i really wanted the sakura patterns on it.
i made it wrongly at first cos i thought it was yellow lining below but i realised it was only yellow at the sides. bleah.
after amending the colours.. i realised there was a slit in the middle so i cut that slit
time to start painting. made some templates but it totally failed.
cos when i imprint it on it looks like shat
i used 2 different templates here
then the finishing strokes to make the edges sharper
halfway painting i realised actually it's 2 flaps and not 1 whole cap so more slit in the middle... so here it is~
ok, the bubble shorts. i actually don't really know how to make it so i took my bubble short sample and just cut the same shape for it.
after sewing together with elastic band. i kinda like how it looks!
there's also 2 flaps below the shorts. ribbons are put on first before the flaps are stitched together.
and the finished product! it looks pretty cute? hehe.
the armour parts are quite straightforwad, just a lot of pieces..
left this to yvonne since she's good at clean wrapping~ she also helped do silver spraying on the fasteners.
and it's done~~ so pretttttyyy
bands to secure and wear on
additional stud decor at the top
now for her leather bustier
after lining the red ribbons
and final combination! invisible zip a the side. looking not too bad!
also sewed tiny hooking buttons for the armour parts to clip on
and the armour parts for my hand
enhanced the armour with gold lining to make it look not so flat. the gold threads are sewn onto the leather portion so it doesn't shift easily.
and for the headdress~
and attaching the threading on
sewed the ribbon ears on my extension cos i don't know how else to put it on..
the obi took some time as i didn't know how to make it... tried doing faint drawings but it looks ughh
so i cut the pieces out instead and pasted them on
and the finished obi
stitched on the purple threading as well
and the ribbon i got from soah
and the leg part, just lots of ribbon...
braiding to mix the colors~
how it looks like!
and my weapon. painted the pole with gesso then black acrylic.
and my final costume~
