About this Costume
Construction Details:
60+ hours and $250+ gives you one giant mass of blue that vaguely resembles a kimono :P I wanted to do Sohryu before I even realized what series he was from... Sad? Perhaps. Upon reading the manga I realized that our personalities are (unfortunately) strikingly similar >.>;;; The wig was a pain to keep looking nice, but it's gorgeous! It's the Cosworx 48" Amanda wig... I pulled it up into two looped buns and drowned it in hairspray. The costume itself has about 4.5 layers to it: a long white kimono-esq robe, a two-toned dark blue/crystal blue layer, a light aqua-blue layer, a mass of beaded/painted panels and obis, and the "Darth Vader Cape" XD
