Information

Towering bunnygirl of doom! I was far too tall for this costume, really needs some proportion altering.

Everything red was made of thick red velvet. While this gave a really great look (the sort of half sheen), it was not even remotely stretchy. Everything had to be cut and tailored exactly to fit, even the hat cover and it frayed like crazy. I used thick black ribbon for the trims and belt and having found no suitable lace, proceeded to hem and gather several miles of white cotton. I really should have backed the belt ribbon as the amount of ruffles kept twisting it over.

The wings were thin stretchy velvet sewn in two layer wing shapes per wing and fitted over a single coathanger outline which hooked into my bra band and pinned to the top too for security. Utterly impossible to put on by yourself, thanks Delusional.

The hat was an oddity; it felt perfectly secure and well balanced and I never had any trouble keeping it on, yet in all the photos it looks extremely precarious. It was entirely made of cardboard and sellotape covered in velvet. If there was one thing I could go back and do over it would be that hat. I really need to learn to try my costume on before the Con.

Huge thanks to Weez for lending me a pink wig on the day (I hadn't been able to find one anywhere). I did put the side curls in it, but only for the masquerade itself, so no photos.

I would like to do the black and pink manga version of this costume at some point in the future, but goodness knows when ^-^

Yay, it's Meroko. You did a great job with the hat, and it's great seeing this series cosplayed.
