About this Costume
Construction Details:
I originally made this for a group which ended up falling through. We were drawing inspiration from various illustrations but tying them together by using the same butterfly design in each. Since the other costumes fell through, I ended up just looking like an innacurate Yuuko, haha. This costume was pretty hard for me, all around. I tried drafting my own pattern for the dress, failed, and bought a commercial pattern that I ended up altering. The shoes were probably my favorite part because I got to go wild with pearls when it came to embellishing them. My husband made my pipe for me from an old paintbrush and lipgloss cap. Ahh the things we come up with....
Personal Thoughts:
Despite the setbacks I really enjoyed wearing this costume. It's like prom, but better. Yuuko is a really far stretch from my personality, so that was probably the biggest challenge.

Styling Notes
The wig was kind of a nightmare. It's hard to make updo wigs look natural. I ended up redoing it the second time I wore it and liked it much better.
