Cosplayer HezaChan > Costume of Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The blouse was made from 2 patterns. One for the basic structure, and one for the sleeves. I drafted my own patterns for the yoke and the collar. I didn't add interfacing to the collar like I probably should have, but I wanted the bow to fit around the collar comfortably without the collar "crunching" oddly.
The skirt and the underskirt are your basic circle skirts. Originally I was going to make my own pink ruffle trim, however I lucked out and found pre-made trim in the exact color of my fabric! That made my life a lot easier when making the underskirt. The vinyl piping/bias tape on the skirt/gloves were made by me using scraps of old fabric I had left over from making I-no. The belt buckle for the gun holster belt was taken off of a belt I bought at Goodwill. The gun is a pink toy gun with a custom painted handle and I added a gold tone chain with Sheryl's gold heart charm from a Macross gashapon keychain.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This costume has been on the back burner for over a year sadly. I just had stronger urges to work on other costumes unfortunately. But now it's done and I'm super happy! I'd say this costume was pretty involved. There were a lot of parts to construct. I'd say I'm most proud of the blouse and vest, although I felt the vest could have been fit better looking at it now.
- Wig Review
- I love the color of the wig, however it tangles very easily, and does tend to shed. I'd say if you get this wig, it would be wise to add wig conditioner or Motions Oil Sheen to it prior to wear.
