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!
Wig Details
Wig Brand
Arda Wigs
Wig Name
Vegas
Original Color:
Rose Pink
Styling Time
2-3 hours
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 used a straightener to heat the fibers, then used rollers to add the wave her hair has. It ended up looking very 90s anime, which is pretty perfect.
Wig Review
This was my first time taking advantage of a heat-resistant wig for styling, but I'm really pleased with the results. It was a very easy wig to work with and I'm so happy with how it turned out. ;u;
