Cosplayer Ali > Costume of Amethyst from Sakizou Artworks
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This was a bit of a monster to construct, since there are just so many parts and trims and fabrics and details. I painted all the lace I used to get the right colors, I did a lot of draping for the skirt, my ruffle foot got a ton of use, and I worked with this very pretty pearl-covered fabric that made an enormous mess.
- Personal Thoughts:
- 90% of this costume seemed to be finishing it.
- Styling Notes
- Had to learn to make one wig go as far as possible, since I couldn't match the color. So there's some teasing and tulle in there to fake some volume. I did get to play with curling a heat-resistant wig, which is okay I guess, but I think I prefer the cheap ones that can be styled with nothing more than a blowdryer and some hairspray.
- Wig Review
- I bought the wig used, and it was in a bit of a state. I will definitely say that it cleaned up way better than I would have expected, so kudos to Arda for restyleability.
