Cosplayer Maryssa > Costume of Takane Shijou from iDOLM@STER
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Too freaking much to type. Our leader Baby Snow Leopard will soon be posting a full writeup of how the electronics were accomplished. The rest of the outfit was made with super shiny metallic spandex and super thick interfacing. Also the clear blue vinyl material of DOOM. Not only was it expensive, the sewing machine HATES it! The dress and sleeves are all lined with soft jersey. I definitely need to revisit parts of this and finish up some of the incomplete circuits (sleeves and shoes). The waistline looks bunchy because it got a little stretched but I still wanted to line up the vertical lines, so I have to figure out how to fix that because it looks like muffin top ~.~ The skirt was truly a nightmare for me from start to finish. Patterning it was HORRID and just every step screwed somethign else up and I wanted to set the whole thing on fire. I'm so proud of how it came out except I need to add stronger boning across the front of that short panel since it's buckling from the weight of the cabachons. I also still need to add the little tails that hang in the back, they are my absolute favorite part of the design but I ran out of time =(
I lost way, way too many hours of sleep finishing this thing.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I can't even begin to describe how much mentally and physically went into this costume. This would have never happened without my amazing teammates. Also these were originally my idea to do so all of my girls have the right to punch me in the face =( But damn I am happy with how it looks! I LOVE COSPLAYING AS LAS VEGAS.
