I needed to pick something for my 1st costume that I could wrap my mind around and this was it. I am big into DOA girls and I love Kasumi's Blue normal costume. this was a lot of work to figure out but I pulled it off.
1st version did not have the sword, 2nd version - added sword
3rd version - widened butt covering
the hardest part is to get used to being wide walking though a con with a sword on the costume like this.
Not sure the fabric I used here, but the white was a remnant that did not fray at all and I would love to buy more. Shoes were painted and duct taped sandals that were worn out.
