Seishirou Sakurazuka (X/1999 Infinity Art Book) - X/1999


AmeCon 2008




Anyone who has ever spoken to me about Seishirou will know just how much I adore this character. If I had to choose a number one bad guy, it would be him. I’ve loved the X art book versions of him for a long time but I wanted to wait till I was a more accomplished seamstress before I attempted any of them. And boy is this a challenge XDD There are so many layers to this costume, one things for sure it’s going to be HOT to wear. >_<
I’ve struggled with this here and there; it’s actually deceivingly complex and time consuming.

I really wasn't all that happy with this ~_~ damn stupid sleeves. Also not too fond of the wig either lol.

WTH you should have told me. I am planning to do a Kamui. XD XD XD.

lol, I've been spazzing about the costume for the last 6 months on lj XDD Anyways, if you did Kamui it'd be better if I did Subaru or Fuma. =D

I don't check LJ anymore. >< XD... nah X/1999 is fine, I guess we'll just have to find a Fuuma. :D

The photos look amazing! The art for X/1999 is so wonderful and you've recreated it perfectly. I'm making one of Arashis similar artbook costumes soon, are the layers really hard to do?

Thanks ^___^ Not hard, no. But I didn't help myself be picking the wrong weight/kind of material which was something I rectified with Subaru. I found it best to fake the layers or things start looking really bulky and ugly. I love Arashis artbook costumes, they're all so elegant. Can't wait to see the finished item. =D
