Nausicaa - Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind




I cut my hair so I could do this costume (so worth it). It's actually one of my favourite costumes. Took me ages to find the right colour fabric for the dress. I made the shotgun shell pouches using a tube of paper. I'm not too happy with the leg warmers, so one day I want to go back and re-make them and make some gloves to go with it. The shape is also a little big so I want to alter that one day. Oh, and the belt was terrible, so want to fix that. The flare gun is a bit pants now, and it really annoyed me that people said she didn't have one (watch the film! She did!). To be honest I wasn't in a good mood that day so wasn't in character at all. When I fix the costume I really want to re-shoot the costume.
