Cosplayer amaryie > Costume of Kougyoku Ren from Magi Labyrinth of Magic
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Hairpin is a series of beads hot glued on a foam base then applied on a needle. The hairpiece is a couple of bracelets melted together covered in gold metallic paper.
The shirt was crafted without a pattern, ruffled, and sleeves are hand painted with dynaflow and fabric paint. The top and bottom shawls are satin lining and velvet print draped over. The costume uses two petticoats, followed by a skirt of one layer charmeuse and two layers organza, the top portion with blue cotton and organza, and a top shawl constructed like the first and enforced with buckram. The wrap is organza, and the belt is cheapo satin, haha.
Pointy nails are fake, haha.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I'm SO happy to say that this costume has pretty much been completed. It's been a long road, but I'm very satisfied the result. I plan to go back and fix little stuff, but...yayyyy
- Styling Notes
- UGHHHHHH dyed twice, toule added, ponytails assembled, and bunny ears are made on a plumber tubbing base. I need to put in more extensions and fix it, but...next time, haha.
- Wig Review
- Pretty sturdy wig, since I've flown with it and traveled with it multiple times. And plenty of hair to cover mine :]
