About this Costume
- Construction Details:
bought a pair of shoes, painted the white parts on, bought new laces and made bows from ribbon which I sewed on. I get them on through slipping my feet in, and made a pair of lifts to make myself a taller more elegant prince. Shorts are a bought pair of leggings I cut shorter and hemmed. The jacket is made from cotton sateen, lined in a really pretty off white rose print! It's all faced and nice and I'm still not 100% happy with the fit kill meeeeeee functioning buttons/button holes, and all the bias tape is hand sewn. the gold triangles are just craft foam painted gold, and the pockets are all fake, just hand sewn on! For my first try I don't think this turned out horrible with a butt load of help from my wonderful friend carly but I'm definitely going to make another one before I wear it again sighs wig is a stand in borrowed from my lovely friend mariel who saved me when the 3 wigs i ordered didn't arrive.
- Personal Thoughts:
- violent utena feelings
unghhh I am so overly emotional about utena it's worrisome like I definitely cried before during and after fanime bc of utena amv's on youtube. life is hard. But I had a ton of fun wearing these costumes and hanging out with my wonderful friends!!! Allso chantal is a perfect anthy it's absurd haha. I really hope I get to wear this, and TONS MORE utena costumes eventually as it's one of my favorite series!
