Description
I was so thrilled that Gaming_Goddess wanted to cosplay Zashiki Warashi because I really wanted to cosplay Ame Warahi from this artwork so she's agreed to cosplay this with me :) all we need is someone who'd like to cosplay Yuuko from this artwork and it'll be epic ^_^

About Ame Warashi:
"Ame Warashi is a hot headed water sprite, who is very loyal to her fellow sprites. She is fickle towards Watanuki as her friend Zashiki Warashi is besotted with him."

About the Cosplay:

I made the dress from scratch using lovely duchess satin for the peach part, and a medium weight satin for the black part, 22meters of red ribbon, lots of hand painting, I made the frill trim from a non-fray fabric, I made the wig from a base wig that got totally altered, the parasol I altered to looklike hers, I painted the roses purple, and made all the little detailed parts of this costume.

I *adore* Ame Warashi's design, I can't wait to see what you make of it <3 Coincidentally this is the Yuuka design I was planning on cosplaying some day in the future - though almost certainly not til next year!

I LOVE seeing people curl their wigs like this! you've done a great job.

Did you painstakingly pull that up into a ponytail? or have you made your own clip on?

Thankyou :)! I made my own clip ons as when the wig's too thin at the back for it look decent pulled up. :( If I'd had the time I'd have altered the wefting but alas only 2weeks to make 6 costumes.

The wig looks fabulous ^_^. All these xxxholic cosplays are making me wish you were a Pet Shop of Horrors fan because you'd do an amazing job of some of its characters for sure XD.
As usual, great work on this and I can't wait to see the finished outfit!
