Kuu

Haibane Renmei

Last Updated: 01-04-2005


Ainslye started a Haibane group for Nekocon 7 because Carrie Savage (Rakka's voice actress) would be there. I hesitated because I don't really look anything like Kuu, but my friends were persistent.

The most challenging aspect was to make this costume look as un-costumey as possible. All of the Haibanes wear secondhand clothing. The first part I made was the hat, it's hand-knit. I love the way it came out. The shorts were easy, just hand-bought pants that were hemmed. The sweatshirt was the most challenging part of the costume. I combined two sweatshirts that were different sizes and styles, then made the kangaroo pocket from leftover material. Lastly I had to make a flap for the wings. It has functional buttons, just like on the show.

The wings were store bought, then extra feathers were shaped and glued on. Finally, they were dyed gray. The wig and shoes were borrowed.

This is such a comfortable costume. Our group got a lot of compliments. The most rewarding part of wearing this was hearing Carrie say "Kuuuuu!" when I walked into her panel. She had us reading lines from the show with her, it was a lot of fun.
