Cosplayer Ciarathallya > Costume of Mary Magdalene from Chrono Crusade
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The dress itself is fairly simple. The base is a white cotton batiste lined with more of the same due to the sheerness of the fabric. The neckline is elasticized. The ruffles are made with a light pink cotton fabric as well. Why? Because I felt like it. I wasn't sure if I should go with white, peach or pink because the artwork varies so much (damn you manga and anime artists for your fail in consistency.) I used a gathering foot on my sewing machine to make the ruffles then hand sewed it to the dress. The underbust corset is a brown microsuede that has been interfaced with light weight interfacing and lined with remnant pink fabric (want not, waste not).
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is a companion costume to go along with a Chrono that I am making. I decided to go with Mary instead of Rosette because I fell in love with the character while reading the manga.
