This is my second Chii cosplay, the dress from the "Birdwatching" illustration. The ruffles and frills were very time consuming, but I'm so pleased with how it all turned out. It was so fun getting to be Chii again!
Material is casa satin, with plain old white broadcloth for the ruffles, which I hand-gathered. Chii ears are craft foam, spools were sculpted out of model magic. I also made a crinoline for underneath the skirt.
