Cosplayer Shiva > Costume of Skuld from Ah My Goddess
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Stardust, Gale and I made these in about a day assembly-line style; Gale and I cut, pleated, and pinned skirts, collars, and bows while Stardust ran them through her machine. By the end of the day we had most of the outfit, and Stardust finished our shirts and bows on her own. I didn’t get to try on the top until Anime Boston, and it fit amazingly! I made the leg warmers out of white stretch cotton and lined the tops with elastic bands. Kurthy made all of our broaches and did our makeup for the photoshoot.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Kurthy had the idea for a large group of Ah, My Goddess characters all in schoolgirl outfits, designed in the color that they predominately wear. Belldandy would be in blue, Skuld in red, Urd in purple, etc, with the bows being a slightly lighter version of the color. While the designs are mostly typical sailor outfits, her concept was based mainly on a small cameo manga drawing. She had asked me to join this group originally for Dragon*Con 2010 as Lind, but I really didn't have the time or the money and sadly declined. However, by Anime Boston 2011 she still needed a Skuld and asked me again, and this time I jumped at the chance. I think I make a better Skuld anyway. :)
