Marika Katou (Pirate Captain) - Mouretsu Pirates




I love this character and her attitude to life SO much. Also, the series is just really chill and fun.

This costume had quite a few components that were new to me, a fitted jacket, pleated skirt and hat made from scratch. It was good fun to wear, though the hat needed a little bit of a makeover after Expo to make it fit over my wig, and still isn't quite complete.

I have a couple more details to add before I'm totally done, like the sleeve skulls, the epaulets, and the red cord on the hat.

I'm pretty satisfied overall with how it turned out, it was an adventure outside my skill zone, but not so far that it was unrealistic! I'll definitely be wearing this again, if I have a chance.
