Kayako (night gown) - The Grudge


I was gonna do Harry Warden but i think I'll do this instead on the halloween day of the expo. Its easy and epic!

Mom managed to find a base nightgown at her work that was going to be ragged, she brought it home and I just cut the sleeves off and bingo: one night gown for Kayako.

Preferably I wanted it plain so it's more accurate but seriously.. it's so hard to find a plain nightgown at a cheap price now a days!

AH!!!!!!!!!! Can you make the noise? Its amazing, I love it.

Im gonna get a tape recorder and have the noise recorded and play on a constant loop through the day in a pocket or something for it. Just to make it that extra bit epic!

Yes! I don't have to panic over that anymore! I just purchased a wig for this costume and I also got black contact lenses for it too. And what's better.. if the wig gets tangled its a new style of fibre that I can straighten it with straightners!! It's a tad shorter than I wanted, but it doesn't have any bangs, so I'm happy.. and in the future if I do AC Tifa again, I can give the wig a side fringe and use it for her after. So all in all it's over all win.

You wouldnt believe how difficult it is to find the right style wig in black and long. All the decent wigs out on ebay at the moment have a side fringe and Kayako obviously doesn't. So I think I'm going to have to use a bit of artistic license with her hair and get a side fringed wig- I can either try and re style the fringe or I can leave it as it is and just pose with my head tilted on every photo so it gives the illusion of no bangs as the hair falls over my face partly.
