Cosplayer Crystalike > Costume of Busujima Saeko from Highschool of the Dead
About this Costume
- Personal Thoughts:
- Welp, this was a fun costume to do.
Before Hybridtwist and I started officially dating, we were contemplating some fun group cosplays, and Saeko was a suggestion. When I watched HOTD for the first time a few years back I was really drawn to Saeko's strong character, calm personality, and manic strength and resolve to be a beautiful fighter. She also had the hime cut hairstyle and bangs I've always wanted to have myself, haha.
So...this was a go! Originally it wasn't really certain when we would cosplay this, but when I heard about AOD and was going to for for the first time I had to make this quickly for a group photoshoot with Richard Bui. :)
This costume was pretty easy, I added on green bias tape, green fabric provided by Misster Gloo and Mizu Tan for the sailor collar, made a little black bow (may need to make a bigger one), and made a super easy leatherette slit skirt. Garterbelt and stockings were purchased online, the undies are a black side tie bikini bottom from Target, and the boots were bought off eBay for cheap.
The sword is borrowed from Hybridtwist.
Wig was bought from Taobao and needs some love before I re wear this costume (hopefully ripped and bloody next time, and with armor >:D) I need to use the hot water method to straighten it and spray it with more oil sheen.
