Cosplayer KashiiCouture > Costume of Ranka Lee from Macross Frontier
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
The dress was made out of a cotton from the quilting section of JoAnn's. I doubled it, so it wouldn't be see-through, and the orange dots are beads that I hand sewed on to the dress. The boots I got off of e-bay, and cut off the extra top suede to make the little buckle, and the lighter fabric I added to the top. The wig was two wigs. One was used as base, and the other got ut up to use as extra hair for her "puppy dog ears". The necklace my boyfriend made me from brass. The scarf was made from the same material as the dress. Her little froggy phone guy I made with green stretch, and I added in a secret item, so he actually squishes when you squeeze him!! hehe His eyes are little orange crystals.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Ranka Lee is more than a cute character for me. She is someone who shares a similar dream, and someone who, as silly as it sounds inspired me to try and become a better me. I have always wanted to be on stage, and sing and dance, and it was nice to see her work hard on her own skills and her own self to work hard and go forward to become something big. The first step to getting over my nervousness was making this outfit! Next is to get over being too shy to do the "Nyan, Nyan" dance for people!
