This is the kind of forum that I was waiting for.

I would really appreciate it if people gave me CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM on my costumes. No flames please.


- what do you like best about them?
- what would you change?
- how are the props working with them (if it applies)?
- how do they look with my figure and coloring?
- any other tips that you can think of.

Please be very generous- meaning give me as many comments and criticism as you can think of. Be objective, but also considerate of my preferences and of how sensitive I am. I can deal with constructive criticism quite well.

I love all of your costumes, and think they're extremely well-done ^_^ I'd suggest getting a wig, but I know you can't do that, so... yeah o.o

I think costumes with blue in them look very good on you - like Nadeshiko, Ginger and Kendappa. Also think Presea's colors look good.

Only two costumes I don't think really work are Juri Arisugawa and Hikaru from Angelic Layer. Juri would have worked better with a more fitted top and a crinoline for the skirt.

Angel Hikaru has a lot of changes I could recommend. Things like should have black up to the neck, red parts on arms and legs should be much higher. Should try stuffing the white shoulder pads, as they go up several inches from her arms. Don't see her 2 trailing cables. Would also suggest some white slip-on shoes instead of ones with laces.

Wow, thank you for the tips Hikaruchan! I do have cables for AL Hikaru, but they cannot be seen in the pic. They reach past my back- could not do them floor length since between that and slip-on shoes, my chances of tripping and falling would be huge. The idea for the costume came to me in a dream; and when I woke up I thought that it was beyond my skill level.

The blue (and jewel tones in general) is because I am a Winter. My Raquel Kasull tunic is midnight blue velvet with white accents- we'll see how well I can pull that off when MegaCon rolls around.

My favorite of your costumes is your Hikaru costume. I really love it! You're also the first Nadesico cosplayer that I've ever seen. Good job!

Which one, Hikaru Shidou, or Angel Hikaru?

I have seen two other Ruris, two Yurikas, and a Megumi from Nadesico.

The main parts of the costumes were done really well, but I noticed that in every costume, your hair is the same. You should invest in temporary hair dye or some wigs to complete the costumes and make them that much more authentic and wow-worthy.

Thanks for the tip, but it's not a possibility. I am allergic to hair color AND wigs. It's a small part of the look that I sacrifice in order to have comfort and not be itching and sneezing all day long.
