My first anime costume! I was very proud of this one because it was the first costume I did without the help from my mom (well, she gave me a suggestion for what to do with the top of the cape, but that was it!). I hadn't worked with spandex before, and I even drafted my own (horrible) pattern to make the bodysuit. It took a lot of trial and error to get it the way I wanted, but I did it, and I felt awesome for it, haha. I also had to draft my own pattern for the capelet. While overall the craftsmanship wasn't outstanding, I was very happy with it, and the costume was well-received.
The wig was another adventure. It started out as a medium-length, blue-purple wig that I cut, styled, and hand colored with magenta Sharpies. At the time, I didn't understand how to extract Sharpie ink for making a spray dye, so I literally colored the whole thing by hand. It took foreeever, but at least I got it the way I wanted? XD;
