Cosplayer Hanamaru > Costume of Tsukimi Kurashita from Princess Jellyfish
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I love Princess Jellyfish. It is one of those anime that I can really relate to.
I put together this costume really quickly using thrift store items. The sweatshirt was a tan one that I dyed pink, and the skirt was originally a longer, bigger one that I modified to fit me and have pleats in the front. I made my Clara jellyfish from scratch using pink fleece and dark pink, black, and white vinyl to make the eyes, mouth, and spots. The body is filled with stuffing and the legs each have a handful of stuffing and are filled the rest of the way with plastic filler beads. The wig is a long black wavy wig with a lace front that I sewed extra extensions onto to make fuller bangs in the front, thicker braids on the sides, and a little messed-up chunk of hair at the crown. I also made the glasses by snipping the tops off of a pair of plastic rimmed glasses, painting them red with acrylic paint, and gluing the original lenses back into place.
I am planning to work on Tsukimi's purple jellyfish dress soon, but this was a quick and easy alternative and something comfortable to wear on a lazy convention day.
