Photo by ROC Photography

Year made: 2010
Cons worn to: Anime Punch 2010, Anime Central 2010

-----------------------------------------------------------

This costume was rather challenging when it came to the top and her wig. I'm not a big fan of sewing collars of any kind, and this was my first time doing a collar like this one. It was absolute hell and the directions on the pattern weren't very clear. I just sort of winged it. I'm not 100% satisfied with it, but it's not too bad I suppose.

The wig was a bit simpler than I thought. I just made a extra hairpiece for her wicked widow's peak. It's made of stiff black felt with a weft of hair glued and sewn in place. It was then styled by cutting it into pointed edges then finished off with hairspray and styling glue. It simply just slips under the headband (which is just a tube of vinyl and elastic that goes around the back of my head) while the actual wig is worn a bit further back on the head to mimic the hair being pulled back.

The red shirt was just purchased at the local Goodwill.

Holy kow, this is beautiful. Love the funky surreal theme as much as the cosplay

Depending on how many of those cards touched your butt, you could get double - nay, triple back on your deck of card investment on the ebays.

Blimey! That is good. Really good. For something that you were "winging" those collars look amazing! Keep it up!
