***THIS COSTUME HAS BEEN SOLD AND IS NO LONGER IN MY POSSESSION***
I hate this costume. I wish I'd dedicated my time to making something else. X_x It makes me look incredibly fat and it hurts to wear... but it's rare that I like a female character enough to want to BE her. So... *shrug*
Himiko presented me with brand new challenges, which, in hindsight, I'm very thankful for. Her headdress, hairclips and jewellery were my first attempts at plastic moulding.
My favourite part of the costume is the obi. Fresh from appliquing all of Lu Xun's swirls, Himiko's sun rays were VERY easy!
Main fabrics are - satin, Chinese brocade, crystal organza, and shot taffeta.
Any questions, just yell out.
