Cosplayer Kimmy > Costume of Sakurai Sho from Arashi
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Nothing was terribly difficult to make, it was just very time consuming since a lot of the patterns on the fabric had to be made.
The orange undershirt was made out of lycra and the black top was made out of some kind of knit with white bias tape for the trim. I can't recall what the base pink material was, but I'm assuming it's some sort of cotton.
Before resorting to creating the patterns on the fabric, I tried finding them in stores and online. I managed to find about a third of what I was looking for. The rest were made out of scrap fabric I had lying around and fabric paint. All of the blue shiny strips on the costume were made out of some sort of shiny fabric that was then fabric glued onto the costume. Finally, all of the sequins on the jacket were hand sewn.
- Personal Thoughts:
- A friend of mine volunteered me for an Arashi cosplay group before asking me, but I was more than happy to join in on the fun. Unfortunately, the group kind of fell through, but it was fun wearing it!
- Styling Notes
- The wig was a bit lighter than I thought it would be, so I tried dyeing it a few shades darker. I don't know if it really made that much of a difference though.
