About this Costume
Construction Details:
I made the pleated skirt, actually making 2 versions of the same damn thing because I wasn't happy with the fabric I used for the first one. ^^; The top is made out of jersey knit using my own pattern (trial and error lmao), and the bullseye design is an iron-on transfer. I still had to paint over the design with fabric paint anyway, because I found out most normal printers don't print white. lol The "Nike" swoosh, heart, and soles on the shoes are all painted using fabric paint, and holy crap how often do I get to wear comfy shoes for cosplay?! THAT NEVER HAPPENS. Overall, this was pretty simple construction-wise, styling the base wig however...

I guess make up related stuff goes under construction details?? Anyway, it was my first time trying to do colored eyebrows, so I used Sushi Monster's cosplay make up tutorial, though I need to find a better foundation and/or practice more so it covers my eyebrows better. xD My "lip balm" is actually an eye crayon topped with lip gloss over foundation, concealer, and powder so I have to be careful that I don't lick my lips, haha. The color is actually much brighter in person, but it doesn't show up well in my test shots. Adora helped me find a really nice lipstick that I used for Fanime 2011, it's Revlon's "Colorburst" line in #025 Carnation, I'm still on the lookout for something more pink but I really like this lipstick! I also painted my nails to match just for fun~
Personal Thoughts:
Benio's another one of those characters I knew I had to cosplay as the second she was introduced, not to mention a lot of my friends have said that I'd be perfect for her. Petite + pink hair = consider it done. XD I'm so excited that I'll have my George and Tetsuya to complete the Filament Squad, and I'm looking forward to making all of her outfits since the wig cost me a pretty penny, and I want to get the most out of it.

Also, I'm not entirely sure of the character listing for this, since it was already available when I added my costume to the database. Since yknow, Benio is totally not Scarlet Kiss at all... nope. I have no idea who this person is. 8D

Styling Notes
I trimmed the bangs on the base wig, since Benio has blunt cut (?) front bangs, and side bangs that hug her face. I don't think I'm good when it comes to trimming wigs at all, and I had to be extra careful with this one. I think it looks decent though! I gently combed diluted got2b spiking glue all over the bangs, the side bangs stay in place with tape, otherwise it poufs out because the base wig is really big on my head for whatever reason. lol
Wig Review
A really nice, pre-styled character wig! *0* You will still have to trim the bangs up, but at least the knife cut ponytails are already taken care of~
