Utena Tenjou (Chiho Saito Luxury Artwork) - Revolutionary Girl Utena


MinamiCon 11 (2005)

The Most Pink Costume




I have no idea why I made this costume. Yes, I love Utena; however I do not like pink. At all. I do like period costume though and especially this particular style.

The costume was a bit of an epic undertaking for a tailoring newb like I was back then and it’s far from perfect. I remember the pink ribbon was so thin I had to use two layers of it on the waist coat so that the blue wouldn’t show though. @_@ It’s the most complex costume I’ve undertaken and the most expensive, not a bench mark I ever want to break with any other costume LOL.

I never managed to get any good photos of this back then and I’ve always wanted to get a few taken. It’s only taken me three years. *coughs*

I absolutely adored this costume of yours, you really can pull off both feminine and masculine costumes so easily. And yes, you were quite pink!

So pink, and yet so stylish and weirdly it suits you well! I think Utena is a perfect character for you, she has that mix of feminine and masculine that you pull off so beautifully.

^///^ I don't have much confidence when it comes to cosplay rather than crossplay, thank you so much for the kind words. :)
