Yin - Darker Than Black


Amecon 2012




Over the summer, I graduated and had to move house. This resulted in me living in campus accommodation for a month, with 2 years worth of stuff with me. Somehow, I decided it would be sensible to make a costume in this situation. This is the result.

Overall, I'm really happy with this. It is a VERY flattering shape, and after I fiddled with the collar of the bolero, it now sits comfortably and nicely. Its a fun, fairly comfy costume, and was comparatively easy to make. Except drafting my own bolero pattern from scratch, there's nothing too radical or exciting going here, except everything is french seamed and faced, and I spent several hours sewing several metres of ribbon into triangle trim.

10/10 Would make again! Really satisfing to make.
