Description
How pretty is this design? It was ordinaly going to be Imitaion black 1st then this one, but after I started fabric browsing for it I just could'nt help myself.

I found that the cosplay itself is not overly complex when broken down, it was the fabric hunting that I found most time consuming and stressfull with this one. Trying to find what I could use which was simalar to the ordginal design with out having to hand paint meters on meters of fabric was not pretty. But in the end I'm happy with the result. It's kinda close but still diffrent.

As for the wig, well I'm pretty bad when it comes to styleing spiky styles >< So I tryed to go for a more natural scruffy type look. There is also so much going on with all the ordiments and stuff that I didnt want to over do it.

The seelves, collor and paper fan's are all hand painted. All the head ordiments were made by what I had lying around.

Lessions learend with this cosplay ~ Its not a good idear to have wind chimes right by your ear for the whole day, specaily after partying the night before >.<

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Edit - 23/6 ~ So after talking to a freind who's working on Setsugetsuka Gakupo I decieded to pull Len back out and actually find motivation for the alterations.
Basicaly after Kita I had issuse with the top and hoped to remake it, but after the sudden change of plans for Mcm May I didnt get the chance. I actually cringe at some of those photos v_v but anyways I shall be complatly remaking the top and some other little bits for a photoshoot and maybe Oct expo.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Top remade and worn to Hyper Japan 23rd July. Still some bits to do.

This costume is so pretty! How much of the fabric did you have to hand paint? 0_0 I really want to do this and am terrified by the prospect of it.

Thank you ^^ The main parts that are painted are the sleeves and collor, tho theres some parts that are painted on the skirt but there not really noticable as the patten on the fabric over powers it. Awww I understand what you mean, when I first looked at it it almost gave me a headach XD but when you sit and take it all apart its not too bad. Good luck if you do go ahead and do it ^^~
