Several of my friends have been talking about cosplaying from Penguindrum since it started airing, and when BlurryEyes and Rootboy decided to make Kanba and Shouma for Otakon, I jumped on the bandwagon. I love Masako's character - she is so prideful and graceful but so delicate at the same time! It was so much fun to cosplay her.
The costume is almost entirely cotton broadcloth (which was not a great choice - it wrinkles a lot and made it very difficult to fit it well), except for the black, which is stretch sateen (since I had extra lying around). The red shirt is poplin, and made from a Cos-Mode pattern. The jacket a heavily-modified version of the same pattern I used for Senjougahara's blouse. The skirt was free-patterned and was an absolute nightmare in construction.
I also felt that I /had/ to make Esmeralda - she and Masako are a team! Cos-Mode released a pattern for the three Takakura penguins, so I altered that. Esmeralda is made from a minky-like fabric I found in the remnants bin at JoAnn, and two full bags of Polyfill! Her eyes are appliqued on, and the white dots are fabric paint.
The wig is really what pulls this whole outfit together. I purchased it off of eBay, trimmed it and re-shaped a bunch of the curls.
