Cosplayer Binkx > Costume of Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The costume is segmented into 5 main parts (not including the bedazzled shoes/tight):
The bra (which has lights piped into the front under hand sewn embellishment and ruffles), the bodice/halter top, the skirt (which has lights encased in organza piping under all the white ruffles and is covered in bias tape so you can't see any edges), the petti, and the giant butt bow.
Pretty much every thing that is any kind of embellishment or ruffle was hand sewn or gathered and I would venture to say one of the main reasons Spacey and I didn't finish these until now was the hours of hand sewing and our desire to sleep before AX 2012. I'm glad we waited- I'm seriously thrilled with these costumes.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is my favorite version of Sheryl, hands down. I never thought I would lose enough weight or have the right make up or make the costume in a way to do it justice and basically since 2012 I decided to just get myself together and make all the costumes I've always wanted to make.
Space Invader and I made matching versions of this costume (in Black and White) and for the most part we did them entirely together, bedazzled and light infused them. And then Jessie Pridemore/Rufflebutt shot them and I just can't even deal with how much I love the final result. <3
