Cosplayer Emmacchi > Costume of Dakki Soh from Houshin Engi
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I had a lot of firsts with this costume. I made my first pair of boots from a pair of thrift store loafers, using a tutorial from CosMode magazine, and my first pair of fake lashes (which I am really proud of). This was also my first time drafting a complex pattern (the dress and hat) and I think they came out nicely. Every part of this costume was made by me. The entire outfit is red and white sateen, minus the gold trim (which is some awful slinky fabric that I will never use again) and Temptation (which is eight layers of gausy "prom dress" fabric). I did the red on the dress and hat without the aid of WonderUnder, since they needed to stretch, so those parts are all hand-sewn. The smaller dots and the yin yang on the dress are fabric paint. The gold tiara thing is a craftfoam-Wonderflex sandwich covered in that hateful gold fabric, then tacked down to the hat using really loose stitches. The wig is an Epic Cosplay/cosplay.com wig, cut and styled by yours truly.
- Styling Notes
- I actually didn't do as much cutting on this wig as you might think. The majority of the wig is pleated and pinned around my head, under the hat. I really didn't want to cut it because I'd like to use this for other Dakki costumes where she has her hair down.
