About this Costume
Construction Details:
Least Favorite Aspect: Her chest armor. Everyone else in the group likes it a lot, and I'm not really sure why I DON'T like it. Haha. I guess I'm really hard on myself because it's MY costume. I would definitely prefer to not have stitched it several times at the top, but the top had that collar on it, so the vinyl wouldn't stretch over the wonderflex properly without having pieces added to it. >;/

Easiest Task: Making her dress, despite having difficulties getting the colors to line up on both sides and having no back view of her dress anywhere. It probably took the longest to make, but was over all, the least stress inducing. Made of black velvet and gold and white vinyl.

Hardest Task: To me, it seemed like everything on Hikaru was hard. She has little tiny details here and there that we kept skipping over, or the colors on the dress wouldn't line up evenly on both sides. We couldn't get the eyes for the sword cast because of their odd shape. >:/ Things like this.
Personal Thoughts:
I love CLAMP, and I don't even remember what happened anymore to make us want to do this because the inconsistencies in CLAMP's work as far as details go always drive us nuts, but I guess we were looking for something for the three of us to make together for our new cosplay group that was debuting this year, and Sam, Hailey, and I came up with this.
