Cosplayer Kardynałka > Costume of Ranka Lee from Macross Frontier
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This is my FAVORITE cosplay at this very moment! I love this outfit so much, and it was such a joy to wear! Unfortunately, I DID stay up 28 hours working on it though the con was the next day! Not bad for a rush job, eh? The boots are spray painted, the color turned out great! The moment I hit stairs? Not so great... The paint cracked and began to chip at my toes and ankles. I love photoshop for fixing the colors, but they needed SERIOUS repairs! They're great now, but it was a long battle =P The ruffle was, actually, a skirt pattern x2 XD It worked well! The orange strips on the shirt were pretty much like bias tape, except I folded them. I used a skirt pattern and omitted one layer of ruffles for the skirt. All the bows are hand made, and each one was sewn on! How CRAZY!
- Styling Notes
- If you saw my previous Ranka, I worked my arsenal off on this wig! It's just cut, then sprayed at the ends, finally teased/backcombed to make the 'puppy ears'
