Cosplayer Chinako > Costume of Serizawa Reira from NANA
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I've wanted to cosplay as Reira for some time and after seeing all of her more recognizable costumes done before, I found the CD photoshoot work for Ito Yuna (Reira's singing talent behind the song "Endless Love") and fell in love with her dress.
The whole costume took me about two weeks to complete. I used silkessence fabric (which frays heavily and as such had to be double tucked before sewing). The shoes were purchased and hand-dyed with Sharpie to match the dress. I also made the dress in three parts: the skit (which contains eight layers of ruffles), the main dress, and the corset middle section. The wig was purchased, but I had to cut and style bangs into it.
