Cosplayer Cepia > Costume of Hikaru Shidou from Magic Knights Rayearth
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I made this one mainly because Tamura Naomi, who sang the Rayearth theme songs, was going to be a guest at Otakon. It was perfect because I had just finished the series and was just itching to make a Hikaru cosplay ^^ The skirt is twill, as if the jacket, and the blouse is actually made from three different fabrics, one for the shirt base, one for the collar and cuffs and and one for the bow (my favorite part of the entire costume!) I made the blouse like the summer one she wears in the final episode because that way I could take the jacket off if I got hot and still wear a complete costume (which was a good move, since Otakon was HOT XD;;;) The skirt is the second pleated one I've made, and it's a HUGE improvement from my first (it actually fits me right)!
- Personal Thoughts:
- lmao, this costume was completely cursed until Kastsucon 2011, because, for one reason or another, I'd never end up getting any decent photos of it when I wore it to conventions (cameras would die, I'd end up wearing it too late in day, it rained, etc)XD;;; I'm glad the curse is broken!
I still want to make armor though I'm not sure when I'll get to it.
