Cosplayer Sakura Mikage > Costume of Cathy from Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
Ears have a base of stiff felt that I glued hair onto. The wefts were taken from a matching OW-107 Arda Wig long hair clip. The wig styling took so long for the hair to properly dry from the gluing and so I can build up layers to properly cover the stiff felt. I had to do some snips into the wig base to stick the ears through to make it look as one with the hair. The bottom of the ears lay against my head, keeping them upright. I took some shears to create bangs. For the tips, a bit of tacky glue was used to keep the points together as well as some of the hair spray. A pink colored permanent marker was used for the tip of the bangs and to make the inner ear look. There are also two clips sewn into the wig, near the temples to keep it from moving.
Top half of dress was modified from the Simplicity 3684 pattern style B. I had to make the sleeves bigger and I took out the yoke to have the tuxedo shirt I have show underneath. The fabric used was a black taffeta I got the 2nd time I was in San Francisco. It's so niiice.
- Personal Thoughts:
- The wig is still the hardest part of this cosplay. It's okay because Cathy's an adorable character.
