Wig was purchased on ebay. The wig was pretty curly so I soaked it in a hot water bath. (Do not try this I was just crazy.) The heat frizzed a piece of the back but it took out all the curls.
The black undershirt is sleeveless but is like a turtle neck.
The kimono top is made out of yellow twill with a white lining trim. I had to hand sew the black trim on the wrist of the sleeves as it was too tight for my machine. The leggings are made out of matte white cotton lycra fabric. I thought was perfect for her leggings.
I bought a base for the shoes then covered the shoes with left over yellow and white fabrics.
The obi thing is a pink cotton satteen that I bought about 3-4 yards of.
The capelet is white twill then painted on all the designs. The little bows on the side of it were hand sewn on.
Paid $5 for a black VHS tape.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is the second costume I made for Lionboogy. Me and him have great taste in animes and we have a love for old school animes. I asked him what is costumes he does not get to normally photograph and he mentioned one of his fav characters. I have read the manga for the anime and I love how fun and goofy the series is! <3
