Cosplayer Otakitty > Costume of Kalifa from One Piece
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Kalifa of the CP9 from the One Piece anime/manga.
This costume was worn at a formal masquerade event, and therefore I modified it to look like a night gown the character would wear for such an ocassion.
The black velvet dress with deep V-plunging neckline was found at a local Goodwill and was so incredibly cheap I now raid Goodwills for velvet dresses I can tear apart for cosplay...
Got big net style fishnets online -it took me too long to settle on the right style- and same for the black stiletto shoes. Ebay FTW.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I have to bleach most of my facial hair and hairline every time I cosplay this to be able to pull off the blonde character and properly blend in the wig. Pretty weird to live with blonde eyebrows the month following that XD
- Styling Notes
- The only part that took any effort was the wig. The style I use is the "Coquette" wig from Amphigory and then used the ink + alcohol wig dye method so popular on the coscom forums. The blonde came out too acid, but I don't think I can change that now.
