|I love the fukus. But I'm not sure what possessed me to do a Myu fuku for my first attempt. Even the anime version is known to be tricky to get right. But I managed! I actually managed! *proud*|
Ok so yeah, haha, this costume took a lot of trial-and-error to get right. Old bedsheets are you friend. And fuckloads of interfacing! The collar was insanely difficult to get right. I've had loads of people asking where I got the pattern for this and no, I didn't use any of the few ones available online, I made it myself. With some help ofc. :) I can't really explain the collar, it's made out of like 12 parts, but the bodice is an adjusted pattern for a normal top, and the skirts are circlepatterns that I just pleated to oblivion.
Also discovered that bootcovers are not a good idea to start that night before if you've never made them before. Just wanna point that out. :P So yeah, they came loose at the end of the day, but oh well. It happens. ^_^
The only things I bought were the tiaras, that we got from Catzia, and the wigs. It's really funny, most people don't realise it's a wig! But it is! ^_^ Funnily enough my real hair isn't all that far off, but yeah, it's a wig. :)
