Inoue Orihime (Episode three costume) - Bleach





I've always liked the fact that Bleach has so many red-haired characters, so it was kind of inevitable that I'd get round to playing Orihime some time. It took me about two years to grow my hair long enough - it was a very masculine cut before I started.
I bought the clips on eBay; I already had the shirt. It was from H&M, I think. The flip-flops are Hello Kitty, and they're from the charity shop where I was working. The skirt is just Dylon paint and Sharpie on a piece of cheap polycotton.
Since I wasn't wearing it anywhere, I just pinned it and went on a walk with my photographer friend. It fell down a bit during the shoot, but we were the only people there so whatever.
Tiny bit of a shift on the saturation in Photoshop, because there's nobody in the world with hair THAT red.

Thank you very much! There aren't many characters I like who have the same hair colour as me, so I take care to cosplay the odd one, since it's kind of fun to be the only person who doesn't need a wig for it. :P
