Koi (Ball) - Original Design


Hibanacon 2017


Something sleek and Koi fish inspired for the ball at Hibana Con.
Inspiration taken from cyber punk and high fashion designs from Balenciaga, Givancci and traditional Japanese kimono- predominantly meiji period.

It's ready to go, struggling with a name though for it.

Hood you believe It!

More sequin nonsense! This time the inside of the hood. Another area nobody is going to see

Sequin hell

So I decided to affix sequins to the underside of the sleeves and tail in the dark contrast areas to offer a better effect when they move. Suffice to say the planning and attaching is a pain. With a week or so to go this is going to be a race to finish!

Pattern placement is key on fabric. Even if your design is a hodge-podge of different patterns! #kitbashcosplay

Patterning stage 2

Most of the patterning is now complete! Thank god for square pattern paper! This stuff is literally the best for making advice designs on from my pattern blocks. A few more adjustments and then it's toile time!

Patterning stage

Loads to do in order to get this done for Hibana Con. The costume has gone through several revisions but has had a few inspirations taken from high fashion and traditional Japanese kimono design. Very rudimentary design attached. Fabrics will include: Velvet Printed scale Pleather Gunmetal Sequins
