Kobato

Last Updated: 09-14-2012


Kobato is definietly one of my most favourited mangas - i love the story and the characters so much! When i've read about Sushou's story i loved it that much i just couldnt stop myself from cosplaying her. I'm glad i could make this costume in pair with my wonderfull friend, Kairi!
Firstly i started to sew all the parts. Dress has two layers and is made of satin cotton. The light beige belts and ornaments on the dress are cut out of suede. Also i handmade swings for honey beads, it was like putting together small puzzles for over 500 glass beads! Theyre all sewn to the edges of the cloak, dress and the shoulder part. In the end i painted the gold ornaments on the hoodie and added blue resin gemstone with LED in it.
Next thing were the wings. Due to my clumsyness i forgot important part which was used to put my wings together on the back so i had to improvise - due to that wings were placed lower than they meant to be. Feathers are made of Poliurethane foam - i used over 15 m of this foam to create those, it was some crazy time cutting out all those single little feather pieces!
Overall i'm happy with the outcome and i plan more Kobato costumes in the future!
