Cosplayer Kilayi > Costume of San from Princess Mononoke
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- It's a slip on dress, since she didn't wear form fitting clothing, and I didn't want to add darts to her "apron" since I thought it would detract a bit from the look of it. I'm bustier than San, so I tried to just pull it in with the ties so I didn't look like a tent.
I DO know that I made the shoes darker, as a personal preference. I never really liked the look of the light tan shoes, and actively elected to make them brown instead.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I've been wanting to make this since I was in high school but didn't for some reason or another, and finally made it for DragonCon 2013. I had a lot of fun in it! It allows me to take serious photos, and fun ones as well, since she kind of goes through a lot of things in the film.
I plan on dirtying it up more, and weathering it before I wear it again to the next convention.
