Costume Information

Cost : £50 inc wig, shoes and sword
Time Taken : 30 hours

I've loved the show for years and don't know why it's taken me so long to make the costume.
The shoulders were the hardest part as they were papemache - with a glue gun, some cotton wool and the hand sewn white tube things on them.
The shorts were leggings I had to hem and the red trim around the outside of the jacket was difficult too.
All of the fancy bits like the cuffs and the buttons and doing my best with the ring were my favourite parts to add although they were fiddly in places.
Having said all of that I love this costume - the ring and the sword of dios (Safe for Panda's helped with that) made it that much more fun to wear. I also made the Touga and Mikki outfits that my friends wore and it was great to have a mini group of us - we even met another Utena!


Beautiful Utena, your work looks so neat ^_^
