About this Costume
Construction Details:
Everything is made out of jersey knit, with the exception of the black shorts as I bought those in LA's Fashion District. I made the halter top first, which has elastic on the bottom, and the vest (? not sure what to call this) is lined with a bottom weight fabric. I had just enough fabric for the long sleeve top and the headband. ^^; I made the shoe covers last, which was easy enough to figure out, they just took a while to make as I had to make sure the lining looked nice. They turned out pretty much how I wanted them to, I just wish I made the top/tongue parts a tad bit taller so they're more floppy! XD
Personal Thoughts:
AH YES, MORE ORANGE HAIRED GUNDAM LOLIS. SURE WHY NOT. Siyegen and I have been meaning to do more cosplays together, and he suggested I go as Kiki to his Norris Packard! Special thanks to BlizzardTerrak for being my personal armory at ALA this year! >:3

Styling Notes
I straightened the wig using a flat iron, and trimmed up the top middle section of the wig. Unfortunately I trimmed a bit too much, so I bought a pack of extensions and sewed them into the wig. This, thankfully helped volumize the wig a bit, and I know Kiki has crazy anime hair but I think this works too, so it looks more natural. XD I'm really happy with how my styling job turned out, but the headband is kinda annoying and gets in the way. :<
Wig Review
The wig started shedding a bit when I took it out of the bag, I've never experienced that with Arda Wigs before! o___o; Aside from that, the quality is what I'd expect and the color (Light Copper Red) is even prettier in person!
