Awards: Aoi Uma Con 2012 2nd Place Masters Craftsmanship
Motivation: I’ve always loved the costume designs for Sheryl but never found one that would be a good fit for my body type, until I found this in the movie. I realized I had the correct wig and fabric laying around so I made it a few nights before Anime Boston just to where around with my forever cosplay buddy Celeste Orchid.
Construction: This costume gave me a chance to use all the fun special occasion fabrics that come out just for prom time. I made the dress with a simple empire waist design then made 16 fabric strips and braided and attached them to the skirt for the bubble hem and waist tie. The over coat is a kimono pattern made from a super light crepe, the layering look at the end was achieved by adding several layers of chiffon. I absolutely love this wig from Arda Wigs, it’s thick with out ratting up and the blended white tone looks great on my skin.
Thoughts: This is my current favorite costume; it’s easy to wear, looks great on my body type, and I can go all Batman with the cover coat.
