Cosplayer Etaru Kaumoto > Costume of Karen Kasumi from X/1999
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
The PVC corset was loosely patterned by me using an old corset pattern I had laying around and altered with deep red taffeta lining, mostly for show rather than real functionality. The bra cups were made using cut up bra forms with push-up inserts, covered in craft foam spray painted with glitter paint. Never again. Arm and leg buckles were patterned from red PVC, boots pre-owned, and finished with a serged chiffon cape. Wig was a lucky find on Ebay that required only bangs to be cut in. I opted out of her thorn choker because no.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I've wanted to make Karen for years since she's probably my favorite character in X/1999, I'm attracted to strong female leads. When Eve agreed to do Nataku for me, the joke to make it turned serious and I had to make it out of principle. Despite being highly impractical for, well basically anything, this is one of my favorite costumes to date.
