Cosplayer Sorceress Cassandra > Costume of Aki Izayoi from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The black part of the outfit is actually a normal dress slip. The white shirt is a large shirt that is actually altered to fit me, I also altered the sleeves heavily to get that puffy look. The burgundy Over Jacket was made from a trench coat pattern which I altered in order to add a flared look that would come to it naturally. The Corset was made from a simple corset pattern and lined with a stiff interfacing. I added the snaps to the front, as well as created the gold bias tape around it's edges. I altered a pair of crushed velvet gloves to get the look I wanted, I also altered a pair of thigh high stockings to get the look I wanted as well. I also created the hair pin seen in Aki's hair with some thin plastic and a pit of black tubing. The garter belt and shoes where bought at Hot Topic and K-mart respectively.
- Styling Notes
- My former roommate and I cut and styled the wig the first time it was worn. It has since been restyled and I am currently considering getting a new wig and using this one for another version of this character.
