Cosplayer Artie > Costume of Hikaru Shidou from Magic Knights Rayearth
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The shirt, bolero and skirt were all hand drafted and made from scratch! The skirt is 100+ inches of fabric, box pleated with properly attached bias tape trim, yoke faced and invisible hemmed. The bolero is a medium weight red knit, the body lined with the same fabric. The shirt was kind of thrown together at the last minute because of time constraints and I intend to remake it in the future, but for what it is it looks pretty good! The socks were purchased and the black stripes at the top painted on.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Dream cosplay, dream cosplay, dream cosplay!! *A* It was so imporant to me to get everything right on this cosplay, Hikaru's been a dream for me for 8+ years now! I feel so so cute in this costume and I couldn't be happier with how I look, which was a worry to me since I don't think I have a good face for a 14 year old CLAMP girl. But I really love how this turned out and my Umi and Fuu are the most flawless gems I could ever ask to cosplay MKR with. We all look great, but more importantly we're all such great friends it makes cosplaying these precious gals together that much more meaningful. I couldn't ask for more perfect magic knights!
- Styling Notes
- Arda's Vegas is a perfect base style for Hikaru, and their Rose Pink is a wonderful color for her, so I was very excited to purchase it! I've only trimmed up the back of the wig to the proper length and cut bangs into it at the moment, but I definitely want to go back and touch up this wig for a more Hikaru-ish look.
