Cosplayer Shii Arisugawa > Costume of Erika Sako from Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner - Soul Hackers
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The super unflattering dress is made out of poplin and lined, with an invisible zipper on the center back seam. I made the turtleneck because I really wanted to make sure the sleeves billowed out slightly on the bottom, but it's barely noticeable. lol. .___. The black thigh highs are from Strawberry, though I might switch them out for a thicker knit one depending on how the weather is at ALA, and the mary janes are painted using acrylic paint/fabric medium.
I put much more time into the randoseru a.k.a. Crap Pack Version 2.0, as Version 1.0 (worn for Kira Daidohji) is retired. I had all the fabric and hardware I wanted to use as well, so the only money I spent on the randoseru was $3/yd for the clear vinyl used on the front pocket. I wanted to kinda go all out with this one, so it can withstand some minor wear and tear at cons, and I wanted to add things like functional pockets into it as well. I put cardboard in-between the layers of fabric and lining, I made the lining a tad too big but ehh, at least it's on the inside? ^^; The construction was pretty easy once I had the pieces patterned out, it just required a lot of ironing interfacing to fabric!
- Personal Thoughts:
- I blame Varnani. :3
