Cosplayer Arlette > Costume of Kyoko Sakura from Madoka Magica
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume was supposed to be something easy to throw together for AZ...but of course things never turn out that way! The biggest issue was the wig, which I was only able to salvage at the very last minute. Otherwise, I sacrificed a pair of jeans and cut them into shorts, then stole some fluffy trim out of a hoodie I haven't worn in about 6 years. I ordered the teal hoodie online, then added the zipper myself. The lines are painted on the sleeves and inside the hood. The boots are a pair of mock Uggs that I already owned, but I sprayed them darker brown.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I love the tsundere bitches.
- Styling Notes
- THIS WIG. IF IT HAD A NECK I WOULD CHOKE IT. I bought a beautiful long burgundy wig online and had plans to put it up into a ponytail without destroying anything. But then I decided, hey, I'll just cut off a bunch of the length and make my own ponytail clip so it'll look better! What I ended up with was a mess of loose wig hair in my lap. So after a bunch of flailing and, yes, some tears...I was able to salvage enough of the wig fibers to finagle them onto a white ponytail clip I already owned, which I dyed to match as closely as possible.
