About this Costume
Construction Details:
this was a bit of a challenge because of the EXTREME lack of references. aside from being shown for a split second in the first episode, the only other reference that exists [to my knowledge] is this figure: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7wlrn2oCp1r02ysyo1_250.jpg

aside from being under an inch tall, this figure is SUPER RARE - to the point where that is literally the only photo I could find of it! I do own it myself... but I'm too lazy for photos.

I strive for accuracy as much as I can, but obviously that was a challenge here. the sunflowers in the screencap looked more realistic, but my painting skills are barely above an elementary school level, so I went for the more graphic, simplistic design featured on the figure. the base flowers were made with twill and painted with acrylic. [they turned out surprisingly neat.] they were zig-zag stitched on because I hadn't figured out how to do a satin/applique stitch with my machine yet. I found some fusible webbing at Joann's that I thought would assist with the applique, but it was awful and tore too easily. [it was a beautiful day in my life when I discovered Heat N Bond over a year later.] I patterned the yukata and obi myself, and made them... from broadcloth... sigh. but I was able to get the exact colors I wanted, which was fabulous. I doubled up on the blue broadcloth since it was so thin, and used HEAVY INTERFACING in the bow of the obi because I finally figured out what it was. never figured out how to get it to sit right, however.
Personal Thoughts:
made it to wear while hosting "The Super Nerdy Code Geass Panel." poor turnout [they scheduled me at 10 am on the first day >>;;;] but the audience still recognized it.
