Cosplaying Sheryl has been a dream of mine since I first watched Macross F. I love her personality, music, and style as well as her role in the story. The dress she wore for the premiere of Ranka's movie is one of my favorites of her outfits. Fortunately it was easy to make overall.
I used fleece for the dress and hat since it held it's shape well and seemed the most fitting for a winter themed outfit. The dress was drafted off a basic shirt pattern and the hat was loosely based off a basic tam/beret tutorial. Honestly, I just threw rectangles, circles, and a couple odd rectanglishesque shapes together for the hat. Thankfully, it turned out looking like her hat.
The "buttons" are pom-poms that I originally tacked to the dress, but ended up having to glue and pin since they would not stay.
I already had the shoes, tights, and wig. Originally, I used a spare wig I had lying around since I hadn't found the perfect one to purchase. However, the second wig was from Purple Plum Inc and was exactly what I was looking for and more. The bracelet was borrowed from Relterra.
If you have any more questions about this cosplay feel free to ask.
I had a lot of fun cosplaying Sheryl. It was a dream of mine come true. I look forward to making more outfits of hers in the future.
