Cosplayer Ammie > Costume of Kasumi from Dead or Alive 4
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- While I was on a DOA kick I decided Kasumi's C2 outfit would be a good choice. I had bought a bunch of white brocade to make the outfit (IcePhoenix actually suggested the fabric choice).
I do however want to remake the obi in a slightly darker pink. I did line the dress with the really light pink satin to add that extra effect. The sword was the one I used for the C1 costume, I just added a gold cord and pom poms to it instead of the red ones.
Everything on this costume was made the same way I made C1. The only exceptions are the gloves with the gold knit on the tops and design painted down the front is cherry blossom petals and not Crane's. The petals I based off the Bome figure. Every reference shot was different and I really didn't know what to do with it. For such a simple design it really was a pain. I also took note of what real cherry blossoms looked like and added a bit of flare to them. They look sort of animated. I wasn't going for a realistic look with them.
The wig I had already from the previous Kasumi costume (Linda XXL in auburn)
I somehow managed to loose my white sandals I used for C1 so I picked up another pair to replace them. They are a total pain to walk in and they want to slip off my feet constantly T_T
Jay had made a Ryu Hayabusa costume to wear to the cosplay picnic in Toronto and wanted me to wear a Kasumi one. I thought that would be a good chance to grab some shots of the C2 varient.
I ended up being super tired at the picnic and not all the photo's came back well. I just looked too tired in most of them. So IcePhoenix suggested we get some winter shots to mimic the winter stage in DOA. Hopefully this winter I can get those done :)
- Personal Thoughts:
- She is my character of choice for the game and I love her beautiful dresses. This white one is so striking in the game. After I made the blue one this was the next one I promised myself to make! Is it obvious yet I am a DOA fan? :P
- Styling Notes
- I just put a roller in the bangs and steamed them to get that poof! Thats it XD
- Wig Review
- Looks like real hair, feels like real hair. Its layered so it always falls perfectly and doesn't tangle up too much.
