Cosplayer Cat-chan > Costume of Kiyone from Tenchi Muyo
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume was fairly straight forward but it did have a few tricky parts. The back of the skirt had some very strange seam lines that I had to pattern out myself. The fabric for the top was custom dyed with RIT dye. It is a china twill. The pistol is a great composite of craft foam, insulation foam, model magic, clay and wood glue. I built it in several pieces and then attached them all together, sealed the foam and painted it.
- Personal Thoughts:
- When some friends were planning a Tenchi group I said...OMFG CAN I BE IN IT TOO YAY! and then we all had the best time ever.
- Styling Notes
- The bangs are heat set with steam and the comb over was teased up and sprayed to hold its shape.
- Wig Review
- The Mirkwood color is darker in person than appears on arda's site but it photographed really well.
