Cosplayer SpPandaaa > Costume of Madoka Kaname from Madoka Magica
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Welp I wanna remake this, but I know I never will.
So where to begin. A while ago before Fanime Teca asked me to do Madoka, and it somehow expanded into this huge thing, and then in the end I never got pictures with her even if she was the one who asked me to do it? lolz oh well. Another time.
The entire cosplay is made of satin, and I drafted all the patterns myself, and due to time, I had to cut (a lot of) corners with details which I may try to go back in and fix now that I'm not "dfjkhgkfjdhg FANIME IS HERE!!!"
There is a lot more hem tape in this cosplay than I would like to admit that keeps parts together.
The petticoat underneath the skirt isn't finished, but there are 6 tiers in progress. I wanted 7 originally so maybe I'll go back and add that in now haha
Ruffles on the top were premade. However ruffles on the skirt were all hand ruffled by yours truly with some help from Jazqui and SageKiller.
Jazqui and Derpelstein helped with the sleeves, and for the performance they were safety pinned/ fashion taped on, so I'll definitely have to go back and remake those entirely, and get the detailing around the sleeves better.
I made a soulgem. It got lost while packing. I don't even know what happened. All I know is I made it, I had it, and now it's gone, and I'm very upset ;A;
And whoops, look at all the little things I forgot to make. She has more red in her outfit than I realized lolz
Whoops, missing bows in pictures from my shoot with Jazqui and Labocat since it went missing after the masquerade while walking to get food. Herpa derp. Guess I need to remake myself some bows while I'm at it too.
Update: Redid the sleeves for Otakon to be more accurate 'cuz lolz the costume was kinda made presentable for stage and not for up close and working. So now the sleeves are gathered and ruffled like they should be. Also have the red strap on the sleeves too.
I had to make new headbows for Madoka since I lost one at Fanime. And I made the neck bow this time too 'cuz I remembered it existed.
I also made the extension for the gloves cuz Madoka's is dumb and flares out.
Oh, and since I never found my soulgem Ari/ PhantomAri just made one for me and I painted it. 'Cuz she's a lot better at sculpey than me. XDDDDDDD
- Personal Thoughts:
- I GAVE BITCHES HOPE. BITCHES LOVE HOPE.
