Cosplayer Animus > Costume of Shiemi Moriyama from Blue Exorcist
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I originally made this sort of quickly for Aki-con, then recently touched it up for a photo shoot. This is specifically the manga variant, and I based the colors on a single image I was able to find with one of the girls in uniform.
This is also my second attempt at wig styling- it turned out much better than the first. I styled it, and a friend (delimit-insanity.deviantart.com, although she doesn't hang there much lately. She is also the photographer.) cut it for me.
The white accent on the boot was something I made- it laces onto the boot and goes under the arch of the foot, but all of the black is just the boot itself.
I also made the Nii-san plush. It looks much better from the front than the back, but nevertheless it's very cute. The arms (but not the legs) are button-jointed and poseable.
I'm also finally figured out how to put a hidden pocket in a pleated skirt! It seems so obvious now that I know how to do it, but there you go. (Shirt and skirt were also made by me, from patterns I drafted.) I also fixed up the tie for this shoot, because before the paint had smudged all over the place and looked messy and the stripes needed to be neatened up.
- Styling Notes
- This was fairly simple- a low ponytail on one side with roses, leave some bangs hanging out. The cut was done by a friend (who is also the photographer).
- Wig Review
- It's my second attempt at styling a wig. It turned out much better than the first.
