About this Costume
Construction Details:
I <3 Magic Knight Rayearth! Way back in the dark ages of middle school, this was the first series that I watched with my two best friends Sara and J'aimie (my Hikaru and Umi respectively). Naturally the three of us identified with the three main characters and we vowed to someday (eventually) get around to cosplaying them. All of the green fabric is Casa Crepe and all of the off-white is Casa Satin. The base of the costume is a tube top and 2 circle skirts. The white skirt is a separate piece that attaches at the waist with snaps and is approximately 5 feet long. The cape attaches with snaps under my chest plate and is 9 feet long and 9.5 feet wide (at the bottom hem). The arm bands, leg bands, and waist band were all oversized rectangles. My chest plate is made from 3 layers of craftfoam (spray painted gold) and one half of a keepsake ornament (spray painted green with hobby paint). The gems on my boots and my headband were cast out of resin. My upper-arm band was made out of a glow-bracelet (painted with the same green hobby paint) and glued to a piece of craftfoam (spray painted gold).

Styling Notes
First off I chose a wig that matches Fuu's hair in the anime because I have learned from past costumes that I look awful with platinum blond hair. This was my first time styling a wig completely solo. I cut about 4'' of length off of the wig in order to give it a blunt edge and make it easier to curl using curlers. I originally wanted a more natural curly look, so I tried to curl the wig with hot water and only managed to make the wig slightly wavy. So instead I slathered the wig fiber in Got2B styling glue and then rolled 8-10 separate curls. When the glue was dry, I took the curlers out and began the tedious process of gluing each of the curls to one another to get Fuu's "continuous chunk of hair" style. The completed wig is thoroughly solid and possibly bullet proof.
