About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Ooooooof this is not the kind of costume I'm used to making.
I used a basic long sleeved shirt pattern to draft the top, then altered the shit out of it. The facing is made of cotton satin, the lining is plain old cotton (which was really stupid of me in retrospect, I could have used cotton satin for the inside too and made it stretch more...). The skirt and fuku are made out of suiting.
The skirt is just a basic box pleated skirt with a 3/4 circle skirt underneath with ruffles sewn to it. The top was quite the endeavor and I'm pretty sick of seeing bias tape not gonna lie.
As for the tights TARA/LoveJoker was the most wonderful human and painted my tights for me while they were on my legs with fabric paint, resulting in some brief super sweet tatts on my legs. THANK YOU SO MUCH TARA YOU ARE A DREAM BOAT ♥
- Personal Thoughts:
- I love Homura, she's such a wonderful character. Her and Madoka are basically my favorite thing, they're beyond precious and their love story (YES IT WAS A LOVE STORY DON'T BOTHER ME ABOUT IT RESIN BEANS) was so tragic and beautiful ;o;
Jessie and I were supposed to wear our Madoka costumes at Otakon but cause of scheduling conflicts couldn't manage it, boo. I can't wait to wear this with her!! ;w;
- Styling Notes
- I am so bad at long wigs 8|
