About this Costume
Construction Details:
Second Yuuko costume made for ALA 09. One of the things that I loved most about this design was that her eye color matched her lips and nail polish - sadly the purple contacts I had turned out blue and were painful so alas, back to red contacts.

The black fabric is a polyester and the corset and gold trim are made out of silk dupioni. The corset has three layers to it and a bunch of steel whitebones. The kimono is fully lined in a really soft baby silk fabric. The ruffles were made out of the same red fabric by hand since the ruffle foot I bought for my machine was a piece of crap! The butterflies were cut out of white fabric, painted orange, and then the smaller details were hand painted in - all which took about 10 hours or so. The butterflies were then heat-bonded on and then satin-stitched with orange thread. Designed my own shoes since the original art work didn't show hers.
