|Kurumu is such an under-rated character, in my opinion, but she's one of my favourites. She's fun, cute and may well win over Tsukune some day.. or Mizore..|
What I really worked on most of all was the skirt. I made three different skirts in total, trying out different techniques on each of them. I double layered one of them (remind me NOT to do that again...) another was just a normal skirt without pleats and the last (and best) one was actually pleated.
The wig is an old Miku Hatsune wig! I cut one of the clip-on ponytails to roughly the right size and it think it worked pretty well.
The hardest part of the costume was definitely the hairband. First off, I couldn't tell from Ikeda's illustrations if it was an elasticated hairband or if it was an aliceband. I went for an aliceband because it would definitely be big enough to be shown on the top of my head.
The legwarmers are just the bottoms of some old white leggings that I cut up. I think they worked pretty well. They stayed up the whole time too! ^3^
I guess the shirt, vest and bow don't really need to be explained, haha! >w<
Another hard part was portraying her personality in the photos. She's supposed to be a sexy succubus (excuse my wording). How do I portray that!? >w<
I think everything went well in the end though and I plan on taking her back to the MCM expo in October, so look out for her ;) <3
