About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Completed June 2009 This costume was made purely out of love for the series, and especially love for the gag eps and Xellos. I just love the episode in NEXT when the guys have to disguise themselves as women to enter the city of Femille, where only women are allowed to enter, while searching for the Claire Bible. I wanted something fun to wear for MetroCon, and this idea came into my head one day and I thought "Why not? Just go for it!". And so it was. This was an easy costume to make, and only took me a couple hours from start to finish. I was able to pick up everything I needed, aside from the wig, at the Walmart conveniently located right across the street from my place. The wig is a Sepia wig in Black Cherry, and was trimmed down a bit to the right length. The dress was self-patterned, the seams are all finished with my serger - has an interfaced collar and bias tape for the yellow accents. I had to do a bit of math for the fit, I wasn't using stretchy fabric because I didn't have much time to make it, so I had to make do with what I could find on such short notice. I am not used to making anything to accomadate such a large chest size, so it took a bit of extra effort for that. Of course, I'm totally stuffing up there, haha. Just like Xellos had to do, I suppose...

- Personal Thoughts:
- Man, that bowl cut is very unflattering on anyone! I wish Xellos had a better, more attractive hairstyle...for whatever reason this wig makes my nose look extremely huge. XD
