I'm sorry about the title of this deviation. Slightly.
Here's a shot with me and my mother
from last year's Gold Coast Supanova. Since it's coming up to almost a year since the event I suppose it's about time I post photos of our cosplay.
I may or may not have a really short skirt to compensate for my lack of legs. Shut up, you'd do the same thing to if you were going to cosplay with a leggy goddess.
This photo was taken and edited by the lovely
who was also responsible for the awesome Shuffle! photos I uploaded a while ago. Check out her work for more awesome cosplay photography!
This costume was completely hand-stitched. It's painful. I really don't suggest it!
Materials for Costume:
Poly cotton for the yellow and pink bits (I'm cheap. Bite me)
Cotton drill for top bit of skirt
Lots of stuffing! It's amazing how much the hip and arm rolls can hold!
Light pink organza for back bow and arm sleeves
Constructed from two Luka wigs (long pink wigs) that had come with a ponytail clip each. There was a lot of cutting and wefting involved! Definitely the biggest wig project I've had to date--but it still needs some improvements.
Odangos - Have a styrofoam base. They make me look so tall!
Hair feathers - cut out from a plastic sheet thing...
Hair pins base - 3 styrofoam balls, will probably remake with pearls instead since the balls were too large.
Edit: The butt bow I'm using in this photo was actually made my
and it literally saved my ass in my "Don't bend over slightly or you'll flash the whole con" skirt.
