Cosplayer cifera > Costume of Hanako Ikezawa from Katawa Shoujo
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Super easy! I think I put this together in just a couple of days. I made this according to a few references released by the official artists for the game- they depicted the shirts with zippers up the front, so I went with that, along with the brown boots Hanako had been drawn in in the limited art at the time that showed her full body.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Okay, I've got to be that annoying person who goes I COSPLAYED IT BEFORE ANYONE HAD EVER HEARD OF IT now because it's true. When I cosplayed Hanako at AX 2011, KS hadn't yet made it to its final form. Only the act 1 preview had been released, hence nobody really knowing who I was supposed to be- I got mistaken for Saeko from HotD quite a few times. I did eventually get recognized, and it was by members of the dev team, which was an awesome experience. I'd love to pull this costume out again now that it's seen so much success on the internet.
