Cosplayer ferocity > Costume of Homura Akemi from Madoka Magica
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- i actually traded a girl on coscom my BBJ cosplay for this, and remade it nearly entirely because wow the commissioner she got it from should be shot, it was just so poorly made.
the heels i've had for years, they're a bit too big so i basically only put them on for pictures. the tights were hand painted with puffy paint (white first, then purple). i added white ruffles to the skirt and added a waistband (how they managed to make a pleated skirt with no waistband is amazing). the black undershirt was so tight it was practically a binder, so i chopped off the sleeves and collar and frankestein'd them to a comfy black shirt! the collar isn't attached to anything, but closes with hook and eyes. i remade the whole white top from a big white button-up. purple collar from the original was added, i used an invisible zipper instead of buttons, and added the bias tape and arm diamonds. all the bows are just purple joann's ribbon.
- Personal Thoughts:
- i never ever planned on being homu since i had my heart set on madoka, but there was always a lingering "if i ever DID, i'd do moemura". plus she fits my weenie personality!
