Kabuki Revolution Extreme

I don't even want to go into how much work is in these costumes. They say never to use satin in a costume, but we used and abused it. We used and abused (mostly abused, with heat torture) lame, which was absurd but turned out beautiful. There's glitter-covered sheer in this, cotton, wool, chamois, crepe-back satin, baroque satin, a horrid swimsuit material, three types of satin rope, 12-gauge wire, 100 LED lights, fiber-optics, and more. My kimono weighs almost 40 pounds. The make-up and costumes together take three hours to get on.

We plan to enter this in the Costume-Con historical masquerade.
