About this Costume
Construction Details:
This costume was really inexpensive to put together, since I already had most of the fabric. The top is just a medium-weight cotton, with broadcloth for the cuffs and collar. I patterned the shirt myself, and it was my first time patterning a top like this from scratch (thankfully it wasn't that complicated). :O The collar is also detachable, so when I make her Winter uniform, that'll be one less thing to make anew.

I had enough of the houndstooth cotton left over from Yukiko to make another skirt. I followed VintageAerith's pleated skirt tutorial on DeviantART, which was awesome. I lined it with a stiff cotton blend material so the pleats would stay better, and once the whole thing was sewn, dyed it gray with Rit dye.
Personal Thoughts:
I love Rise (redheads represent!) and with the P4 anime having recently come out, I was reminded of how much I wanted to cosplay her. :3

How was the wig colored?
Sharpie Dye
Styling Notes
I dyed this wig 3 times using the Sharpies + rubbing alcohol method, with brown and purple sharpies to darken it. It didn't have nearly the effect I was going for. -_- *womp womp* This wig's fiber was just really resistant to dye, I guess?
