As soon as the release came out for the video, I decided this was a Day challenge, and I stopped production on my Kh cosplay to make this. I did it for Nor Cal Cosplay mostly, but I always try to think of multiple uses for my costume!
I did all the shopping, cutting and sewing via closet cosplay within a day. I first shopped at office max for my glasses. I was hoping for colored see through mylar, but nope, the glasses I can't see well. Its just a prop and just the look. I have cutting tools at home. I used a masking tape as a size for the lenz.
After the gatehring and before Cherry blossom, I revised it a bit. I had the pieces like the hook of the glases as two pieces, and its not very stable to take out. So I use a plastic glasses as a reference, make sure to cut in one piece instead of several, and hot glue in the correct places. And as well, using dry erase markers, so I can get a good line, but not a permanent one, so I could erase for the lenz.
The jacket took awhile to find.
The jacket is a repurposed bath robe from the 99 cent store. Its a lucky find that I found the exact robe in exact colors as it took awhile to finding something good. I had to quickly look through a few stores. Then I just bought some buttons, and then took time to seamm ripp the pockets, and the belt loops. After that, it was a matter of cutting where I wanted it by eye. Taking it on and off, pinning it etc, in the mirror, etc.
I love it as a regular jacket and it super warm. Only thing off is that the colar, I accidently did a v color instead of her straight up colar, oops. But oh well, at least it looks like hers, mins the extra fur jamie drew on her.
Shoes, I had to just go through thrift shopping via salvation army. Then I used krylon spray white paint all over the shooe exept the buckle. I should of bought the other, but oh well. Then after I used acrylic paint to paint the sold the orange yellow color.
Pants are just repurposed from her El Manna version.
And then for the hair, I looked up tutorials for teasing. It took awhile to find it for some reason, but the tutorial I followed was here. Just hair spray no heat.
Tutorial I finally found:
Turns out though my hair is just super thick and it eventually falls down to the original position. so thourgh out the day, I have to carry a can of hair spray.
