My first cosplay. Yes, Saint Tail was my first constructed cosplay, but this was my first anime costume ever put together. The hair is my own, my braid stashed into the back of my shirt. The shorts, shirt, tights, sweatbands and shoes were all department-store finds. I had red baggy boots, but they fell apart on me before the performance where I got all my photos for this costume from. The yellow additions were made in felt, and the back tails were made from felt and based on my first drafted pattern. The fox tail was a keepsake from my dearest Renaissance Festival, and the ears were cardboard, hotglue, and fake fur, attached to a black sweat band. The red bowtie was simply some ribbon, and the tie was altered thrift store.
All my other costumes are just amazing compared to this. =D
The wrap around my hand actually relates to the costume. I was freaking out and my ears fell apart an hour before performance. I was hastily hot gluing them back together. I had put down the hotglue to look for something, forgot the gluegun was there, and put my hand on it. It took a moment for me to realize what I'd done, another to notice the pain, and a few more to do anything about it. The result? Ten seconds of my palm right on the heater. Not cool. Literally.
