About this Costume
Construction Details:
Kimono was the easiest part. Obi is hand-painted with hand-dyed lace underneath. My shoes were once a pair of gigantic Demonia goth sandals that made me stand about six feet tall. I ripped the leather and rivets out of them, carved out the bottom, filled it with fiberglass, and sanded down and painted them to match her shoes in the artwork. Hairsticks are 9 pairs of chopsticks from Veggie Heaven and Tina's parents' restaurant. I made the earring and the Galactic Fairy dangly thing from scratch, as well as the giant Chinese knot on the back of her head, which required some research to get right. The pipe is made from wood and paper clay. Bra is a VS Miraculous and it brings my boobs to my f'ing chin YES GOOD PERFECT I AM AN ANIME.
Personal Thoughts:
This was the design that made me watch Macross Frontier. I saw these outfits, blasted through the series/movies, and fell in LOVE with Sheryl. The friendship and support that Ranka and Sheryl share for each other is my favorite thing about the show, so I knew if I did this costume, it would only feel right to have my BFF Pork Buns with me. So I got her drunk enough to agree to it and now I get to cry over friendship photos forever THANKS TINA ILU BB

Styling Notes
There are two wigs in this monster: the base wig is an Ayanamisatoru SeeU wig with the ponytails taken out and highlighted pink. The bun and head fan-thing are all made from parts of my old Sailor Moon wig (also from Ayanamisatoru) that I hacked up. Head fan is foam board painted gold and wrapped in my Moon tails, also highlighted pink. It has a haircomb sewn into the middle for easy on/off removal, which comes in handy for sliding on the heads of unsuspecting drunk friends.
