Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Last Updated: 03-23-2012
Before I even watched Puella Magi Madoka Magica, my best friend insisted that Homura was going to be my favourite character.
She was absolutely right. There are so many things about Homura that I adore, and she's easily the character in the show that I can relate to the most. I knew as soon as I watched it that this cosplay needed to be in my life.
I'm a firm believer that all magical girls need to be...well..Magical. So, when I was choosing my fabrics, I tried my hardest to make sure that they were a little fancier than just the flat colors that read on the show. The black undershirt is a black crepe, the white shirt is a beautiful white stretch sateen (I'm addicted to sateens), the grey sailor collar and skirt are grey suiting, and the ruffles are white chiffon. The bows are this AMAZING plum Shantung that I chanced upon and they're easily my favourite part of the costume! The diamonds on the V.1 pair of tights are plum crepe-back satin appliques that I cut out and glued to the tights. The black trim is my second favourite; I made a black velvet bias tape and it's just HNGH. I don't know what possessed me to do it but I'm so glad I did haha, even if it's not very apparent in the photos.
I made this costume in about two days for MomoCon, and there are still things I need to go back and fix but overall I'm pleased with it.
My Soul Gem is a glitter bombed mold made of paper clay with a gem from Joann's.
