About this Costume
Construction Details:
I started off by making all of the undergarments, including a buskless corset (because the blouse had to be so close fitting in the front), and a bustle. After that was several rounds of mock-ups and fittings of the top. The skirt was the easiest part of the whole thing.
Personal Thoughts:
The moment I saw tumblr user Dorkamine's Steamstuck designs that I was going to cosplay at least two of them, and Kanaya's design called out to me the most. I love the colour green, and the design of the dress was so beautiful. It was also a challenge, which was exciting.

It took several mock-ups and fittings to get this all right, and as close to the original design as possible. I'm really happy with how everything turned out.

Styling Notes
The wig was styled with Got 2 Be Glue freeze spray. I just stuck it on my twin's head, since we have the same face shape, and went to town with no real idea of what I was doing.
Wig Review
This wig styled very easily and the style of wig lent well to the character.
