Cosplayer Lolita Minako > Costume of Kairi from Kingdom Hearts
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume was hard. Hard to find the bracelets, get them painted (and stay that way), hard to bead the skirt, to SEW the skirt....you name it, and it kicked my butt. My friend Janet (Hime no Toki) styled the wig and Roy made the paopu fruit.The amazing Sora in the photos is my friend, Preston!!
- Personal Thoughts:
- I have never been so proud of a costume in my life. Especially the skirt. Completely drafted the pattern myself, and it is proportional to my reference photo. The button even has 2 holes in it, like the reference photo. The 3D image in the game journal that you can rotate is so wonderful, too!! Destroying the belt from Good Will was fun (I needed the buckle)
- Styling Notes
- We did a hot water treatment to relax the fibers, then Hime no Toki trimmed in the bangs and used clear caulk to chunk them.
