About this Costume
- Construction Details:
The dress was made entirely from a matte satin: Pink for the main part, Red for the trim and flower applique, and Green for the leaves of the flower. I made my own pattern based on the way Chinese dresses are made (looking at one I previously owned) with some altering it to have all the proper details Shampoo's dress has. The dress is fully lined, and all the bias tape trim is home-made so that it would match the flower applique. I hand-made all the little bows with the coordinated dyed-to-match red velvet ribbon.
The flower applique on the skirt was designed, detailed, and made by Shocktress. ???
The shoes were easy, it only took one trip to the mall to find the perfect shoes.
- Personal Thoughts:
- My sweetie & I had been re-watching Ranma 1/2 and they suggested that I cosplay Shampoo, which oddly enough I had been toying with that idea for some time, since she is so adorable, has purple hair, and turns into a cute little kitty! ^^; I loved the color scheme of this particular outfit, and I'd been wanting to cosplay a purple haired character for a while...all things considered it was too irresistible for me and it just had to happen.<br />
(I would eventually like to make her weapons.)
- Styling Notes
- The wig is 2 in one and is very heavy because of that. It took over a week to create and style the wig alone. The base wigs were obtained from a local shop, not Amphigory, this wig started out as 2 Enchantments that I combined into one. The bangs are super poofed via curlers, heat, hairspray, and a ton of patience. The buns are my little secret ^_~
