About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I went to study in Japan for a year in september 2008. I started reading the manga shortly after my arrival, and I immediatly loved it ♥. The anime just started airing or was about to, so I had even more interest in it than before. A friend watched the anime and loved it too, so we right away decided to do a group. Around the same time, the drama Maou was airing on japanese TV and we were watching it. The opening song (Truth by Arashi) was just PERFECT for Kuroshitsuji ! So we decided what we were going to do on stage at the same time (dancing on Truth).
But we were both in Japan for a year, so we had to wait to come back to France to be able to do it. It was definitly a looong year to wait (but Japan worth it 100 times or more) but we did this group at the next con after our both returns :3.
This costume was not hard to do, and even if I'm not quite please with my pants, I like it ♥. Beside the damn chest-compressor *cough* it was easy and nice to wear. I didn't do the red coat Grell is wearing, because our lovely Madam Red was wearing hers ♥ but I'll do it later. I didn't have time to style my wig and it turn out kinda weird, but he.
I had a marvelous time with my friend in this group ! And the stage went well too, so I was really happy.
Here is a video of the stage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTOq_UhFa9c
