About this Costume
Construction Details:
The dress itself is actually a very simple dress, but the designs make it fun. I started off by making the base dress out of red casa satin and some cotton lining for the bust area. The dress is french seamed since I do not have a serger yet and I wanted a clean inside layer without adding a lining to weigh it down. For the skirting I actually trimmed the egde with some heat n bond to give it a super clean cut and then glued on the beaded trim. For the black detailing I actually sat down and drafter out a pattern to make everything nice and semetrical. It is cut out of black casa and is simply heat n bonded on. For the bust butterfly I actually opted to paint this on with several layers of fabric and acyrlic paint. Under the bust I took apart the beads from the trim and re beaded them together. All of the little butterflies on the dress are foamy sandwiched between two layers of hand painted heat n bonded casa satin. And then my favorite part was accessories. My shoes are a hand painted heat n bonded butterfly attached around the ankle with some trim. The necklace was purchsed from Claires, but the earrings were hand beaded to again match the rest of the trim that I used.
Personal Thoughts:
I absolutely love Yuuko’s character!!! She is crazy awesome!

Styling Notes
I've actually worn two wigs for this outfit. The first was an Amanda wig from cosworx that I cut and curled myself. The second wig was an Alice wig from cosworx with a clip added to the back.
