About this Costume
Construction Details:
I call this costume the 'leftover' costume, because that's mostly what it was made of. ^_^ The kimono is white linen lined with acetate, again Simplicity pattern # 8311. The red inner collar was made from cotton broadcloth leftover from my Mugen Gakuen costume. The obi and bow were made of fabric that was leftover from my mother making me a ball gown. I'm not sure exactly what it is, I just know it was the right color and the right price. ^_^; The pink belt is a rayon material, stolen from a length I had intended for something else. Naturally, I've long since forgotten what that intended was. =^_^= In fact, the only thing I actually bought especially for this outfit was the ribbon for her hair and foot.
Personal Thoughts:
This one is so me. If I plan on a costume for eons, it'll never get done. If I get invited to a con last minute and am only halfway through an anime series, I have the costume done in a week. ^_o; The character is also me as well. She has three friends in the entire world, doesn't smile and rarely speaks. ^_^; Sure, it sounds depressing, but 'Vampire Princess Miyu' is a great series. If you're a fan of 'The X-Files' you'll probably love it. Same kind of atmosphere. ^_^ And after Otakon, a few changes were made. Anna was right, you should always wear your costume for a day before you take it to a con. That way you can find out what bags and sags and bunches and droops and chafes and otherwise misbehaves in time to fix it properly. ^_^ With this one, I re-did the hem because it wasn't to my liking and added more interfacing to the obi so it looked more authentic. I also re-made the butt-bow with nylon tulle inside so it was lighter and changed the obi fastener to Velcro, so hopefully I won't need to be bumming any more safety pins to hold things up. =^_^=
