About this Costume
Construction Details:
This costume was harder than it looked! But I'm pleased with how it turned out! The wands were made by my Uncle, under my direction and preperation of all the materials. Symbol(s) were "designed" by myself in Adobe Illustrator (of course they had to be flipped so when printing out onto iron-on paper, the symbol wouldn't be backwards!).
I drafted the dress pattern myself, my first time doing so without any aid of a set pattern. The cape and hat patterns were drafted by CountessLenore, so as to have us match. Shoes began as just red pumps, painted the heels black, and out of vinyl made the panels of the shoe that go almost over the foot but not completely, wrestled with how to make the shoe "cuffs", finally just resorted to craft foam. -UPDATE- To revamp this for 2014, I redid the shoes, craft foam was removed and used as a base. Wire was glued in key places around the design directly to the foam base, then two pieces of black "pleather" (cut larger than the foam) were adhered to the base with a spray adhesive. I then took in the extra "hem" and hand sewed the pleather together with heavy-duty clear "thread".
Also, to keep the flaps close to the shoe where the black meets red I used discretely hidden snaps and fishing wire so it would be less noticeable in pictures. I'm still not the most pleased with them (and they hurt so badly to walk in), but I like how they look much better than the stupid foam!
The gloves and my pantyhose were the only parts of this costume that were bought.
Personal Thoughts:
While this costume frustrated me a bit, I'm so happy with how it turned out, and even more so to finally cosplay as Sae Sawanaguchi. One of my favorite characters ever. She's such a sweetie!
