Paradise Kiss - Caroline (Yukari) - Runway Dress

 


Information

This costume was hand beaded, all the lace & shoes were dyed, jewelry & shoes were hand beaded as well. It took around 200 hours just to do the beading & jewelry/shoes. Fake roses were purchased and extentions were snapped onto the train and back of the dress for effect.

This costume was first warn at Anime Central 2002 (Chicago, IL). Unfortunatly, I was unable to bring this costume with me when I moved.

I first thought of doing this dress while reading Paradise Kiss. We created it before the 'offical' image was released in Japan and the dress matched pretty close to it and altered it slightly before it's debut. This costume was a part of an entire group, including George, Isabella (who was cosplayed as we guy), Miwako & Arashi.

The dress itself is VERY heavy and was torn during it's debut because a bystander was not paying attention where they were walking and caught the underskirt.
