Costume Information

Cost : £5 for all the ribbon
Time Taken : 15 hours over a month

Due to my break down, Zhen Ji feel to pieces and so did my motivation to cosplay. However, after going through my fabric boxes I found some inspiration and motivation.

In my extensive collection of left over fabric, I found a fair amount of pvc lycra from my Golden Darkness cosplay. Nene's alternate costume leaped into my mind as I dug out my Warriors Orochi Databook. The game is possibly my favourite, and Nene is a character that I thoroughly enjoyed playing as. Therefore I gave into the temptation. At the moment, I am only making it for fun without giving myself the stress of a deadline but I would very much love to have it finished for Expo; I promise not too push myself too much.

To-Do List

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.


Pretty Much finished! (Posted 2nd October 2011)

Well this hasn't turned out too bad considering it was quickly put together with scrap fabric. I would have liked it to have been tighter on the crotch area as it has for some reason gone a little baggy so if I have time I will try to fix that. The wig is not a bob because I couldn't afford to buy a new one, so I just clipped up my longer one, which looks pretty good. Shoes Might change to be more accurate but once again that depends on time and money - I love the shoes in this picture anyway XD I won't be making the daggers simply because I suck at weapon making >< Anyway, I love this costume, and hope that everyone else likes it too.

Progress and Test (Posted 16th September 2011)

I am actually really happy with this but I have so much to fix and do. (Wig, Shoes, Shoulder Armour and Daggers need to be done) Th biggest issue I have with this costume is the leggings like to fall and show my bum, which I don't really appreciate. Therefore I am going to attach them to the top and turn it into a catsuit which the costume is originally. The long black ribbon is there to finish the threading; when the top and leggings are attached, the threading will go higher to my waist line. Other than that I really can't be asked to talk fully about the costume right now - too tired.

Obi (Posted 15th September 2011)

After hours of sewing that bloody leather, we are done.I quite like it, I am glad I decided on leather (might change my mind when I make the wrist guards). I chose leather because I wanted a stiff material and I thought it would go well with the pvc lycra I am using for the rest of the costume (also I lots left over from Noh's snake and Xiao Qiao's wings and I need to use it up). I have altered the design a little but that doesn't really matter.

Leggings (Posted 11th September 2011)

Well these were harder to make than I expected. I have never made pattern to fit the crotch area before so it was a little challenge. The pattern is not perfect and a little messy but I am pretty pleased with it. I actually do really like them, and I hope the rest of he costume turns out well. A great start ^^
