Cosplayer Dr Hikaru > Costume of Busujima Saeko from Highschool of the Dead
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The skirt is knife pleated and lined in itself. I used cotton for both the skirt and the collar. The collar I drafted my own pattern for. The uniform shirt is altered to include the side panels and bias tape for the trim. Many thanks to WindoftheStars who helped me with alterations and made my pretty bow!
- Personal Thoughts:
- I love Highschool of the Dead! Last year when I met WindoftheStars she was wearing Rei and she convinced me to make a Saeko costume. This costume is super comfy! I love my shoes which were only $7 at Savers. I didn't have time to get my wooden bokken sword at my parents' home so I used some wooden anime sword instead. This was my first time making a pleated skirt without a pattern, and the skirt is the second iteration. I will be remaking the skirt (again) as the pleats weren't as deep as I hoped for. All in all I had a lot of fun as Saeko and look forward to wearing this costume again! Of course I had fun with Saeko's makeup as well, she's pretty bad-ass! The wig I didn't quite set the way I wanted at Anime Bonanza, but John Patch and Dwight Garcia wanted a new photoshoot and I was able to fix them for that!
- Styling Notes
- Epic Cosplay wigs are beautiful but the bangs are super thick. I spent a decent amount of time thinning the bangs and cutting her signature style.
