Costume Information

Cost : The wig cost a fortune, but apart from that it was pretty cheap. All in all... 100 quid maybe?
Time Taken : About a month. Like I said, I'm a slow seamstress.

Oh nomnom. I love Sayuri Katayama. I love Seiya Kou. I love all the incarnations of her (even her male anime form, deal with it!) This costume was pretty simple, thank gawd! Me and Lauren had matching outfits, even the rings on our zippers were made in different sizes cuz she's so chibi! Even the shoes are matching. ^_^

The attention to detail on your Juuban uniform is wonderful! I think Usagi may just return Seiya's affection now!

Aw thanks Mousie! I tried really hard. I mean, I know that the wig isn't as accurate as I would've liked, but like I said, I thought getting it commisioned was a ticket to perfection. Man I was blue-eyed. And next time I wear it I'll try to have actual blue eyes! :D

Thanks Nami! ^_^

OMG! I remember you! I was the Aerith and Jill Valentine cosplayer from the May Expo. I loved your costumes! I took so many photos of you during the masquerade and I loved your skits :D

OMG. You were the Seiya on Saturday!!! I wanted to molest you (in a nice way). I <3 Seiya! I think I deafened my friends screaming: 'I LOVE YOU SEIYA' from the back of the masquerade hall. I felt like I was at a concert! XD

Seriously though, you were awesome! I loved your dance! It was so in time and everything was perfect. You looked amazing!

I'm telling you, just come grab me next time! ;) Haha, I didn't hear, but to be honest, I was so nervous I don't actually remember the performance. :P But thank you! We worked really hard and am so happy to get praise. It makes it all worth it. :)

I had to peek through the curtain from the back, but your performance was great! Really good fun, wish I could have seen the costumes close up :)

Taking pictures in the fading light is terror. There are no good places in my new apartment to take pictures so I've been putting this off for ages. Finally decided that I might as well just take some pictures and make the best of it, and some came out ok and others not so much... ^^; So yeah, will upload them later today once I've eaten and shopped them a bit. :)

Hmm... (Posted 22nd January 2010)

Ok so restyling this wig turned out harder than I thought. Since I commissioned it I don't know what fibers it's made out of, or what products she used in it. I tried washing it carefully but it still flicked out. So I just cut it, lots. It's not perfect, but I think it's a bit better. I should've done a before and after pic but I forgot. :P It's not finished though, it's still a teensy bit unever but I've run out of time today so the rest will have to wait 'til another day. ^^

Teehee, late? (Posted 22nd December 2009)

I need photos of this costume. :P Am currently planning to do a photoshoooot. :D I'm also gonna try and re-style the wig, I don't like how it flicks out. :S Plus the tail might be a bit wavy, since I've been away for 6 months I've had to store ally my wigs so I braded the pigtail loosely. :) Next time I order wigs I'm gonna try and get an extenstion weft for it too so that the tail will be a bit thicker. :) Before I didn't like that the wig was so dark, since the Myu wigs are meant to be much brighter, but now I quite like it. With some re-styling I'll be able to use it was anime and manga Seiya too. ^______^
