About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Yuuko-saaaaaaan! Wearing this makes you feel like a drag queen. This is the outfit from the artbook cover—you can only see the top half of it so it was cool to design what the bottom would look like. It's also mirrored as I'm left-handed, easier for me to work with holding stuff/posing-wise ^^;; Originally I planned to do the red part in full dupioni silk (silk is fab for painting) but due to a jack up in silk prices I went with the back side of poly shantung. The entire outfit was designed, drafted, crafted, painted and sewn by me, shoes as well were vastly altered from their original, icky beige strappy state. There's a bunch of hidden padding and elastic in them too, they're a size too large, and can only be worn for about to 2 hours straight of walking before the tripping starts...
