Cosplayer AoiMizuno (Christine) > Costume of Litchi Faye-Ling from BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
GUH. This outfit lol. I totally underestimated it. It LOOKED so simple to me until I started working on it. -_- So not your standard top... I started out by building just a long sleeve high neck top and slowly cut away at it to look right. Cut away at the shoulders and the front. Kept re-wearing and cutting away till it looked like it was open and busting out at the chest area. And then I added SO MUCH BIAS TAPE. @_@
The bottom skirt was really hard too. The artwork and animation was constantly changing and I just couldn't figure out how the shape was for the life of me. I pictured it draping a certain way so I just kept draping and cutting away like a retard till it looked right for me.
Thinking of making the width of the front skirt flap smaller. Looks too wide in the photos in comparison to the artwork. Gonna work on that. :/a
- Personal Thoughts:
- This costume cost a grand total about $67. That includes all fabrics & materials used for every piece of the costume itself, the shoes AND the wig extension.
Not included in the cost are the glasses, the base wig, Lao Jiu (panda clip), and her pole weapon since I already had those from her Story Mode cosplay I did earlier on. :B
- Styling Notes
- I have a short base wig that I cut and styled from my other version of Litchi. Then I bought a cheap halloween "godiva" floor length black wig. Super crappy but cheap. Untangled it, styled it, added a clip and stubbed the bottom to attach the yin yang. @_@ Added more hair on the bottom of the yin yang to give the illusion it's threaded through. >:3
