Cosplayer amaryie > Costume of Risa Koizumi from Lovely Complex
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- AHHHH crazy construction. The skirt was originally a box pleat before I realized it was a knife pleat *stabs foot* and the sweater was from a mccall's pattern that I nearly died over because of its awkward and unusual cut. Also first time using an "expensive" fabric (wool on the jacket), so I nearly cried cutting into it. Trim is a red knit that for the most part is interfaced. Button up is from forever 21 that I had in my closet.
- Personal Thoughts:
- First of all, Love*Com is one of the few modern shoujos that I can watch these days as it's not overdone. I really enjoyed being Riza because as a girl who is 5'8 1/2", it's hard to find tall guys...she made me think twice about shorter guys and I'm really happy that I could emotionally connect with my character.
Also THANK YOU!! to Blueshadow for being the cutest/best Ootani-POO ever! Love you! :D
- Styling Notes
- I cut side bangs. Nothing too special xD
- Wig Review
- As if Arda wigs aren't perfect enough. THIS WAS THE ABSOLUTE PERFECT COLOR FOR KOIZUMI. Recommend this to any Risa cosplayer!! :D
