Cosplayer Suki > Costume of Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
The vest is so well constructed it's disgusting, it's completely lined and interfaced and everything. And then while teaching a friend a Jpop dance at the con a button popped and I had to frantically run around the AA asking for needle and thread, whoops.
The blouse I drafted myself, it's amazingly comfy! Most of the lace is handsewn because it kept slipping on the machine.
The gun is a toy pistol I got off ebay and painted, shoes the same deal-- I painted the heels and made boot covers, and used rhinestones around the heart because I love rhinestones and I had about 700 extra.
The skirt is about five inches too long whoops. It's a full circle skirt with horsehair braid in the hem. The petticoat is sewn to it, with two tiers of pink ruffles. I took it out of my suitcase and it had deflated horribly, so I had to put a second petticoat underneath and it... still deflated horribly over the day. It's wicked heavy. Also I lost weight in the year after making it and had to safety pin it so it sat high enough.
The stupid glove things were the bane of my existence and I hate them.
- Personal Thoughts:
- My life goal is to become Sheryl Nome
- Wig Review
- It's a little thin for Sheryl, but stays relatively tangle-free and I like the colors.
