Chibi-Usa was my latest 'big' project, so to speak. The only major construction for this costume was the wings, this was my first time making a pair and it was a fun experience. They were easier to make than I thought they would be, and my latest endeavor, learning leather, is proving to be much more difficult (and I thought it would be easier -.-;). They were very painful to wear though due to their size, so I found it much easier to do more of her sad poses. It was proving difficult to look happy, and I would love to get more shots in the future so I can have a nicer location and try and not let the discomfort affect the photos. The wings span out 5 feet, which is actually the same as my height, so it was really awkward. Wig styled by Space Invader, everything else made by me.
This costume was inspired by the SuperS season, which is a season that many fans, myself included, tend to overlook. I know alot of people hate Chibi-Usa, whether this was brought on by the dub or not is debateable. But I always had a fondness for her, annoying brat or not - and found it was easy to relate to her a lot of times. And I love the color pink, so dressing up as her is a lot of fun. I actually met a few Chibi-Usa fans in costume, which made me happy. :D I don't think she deserves the bad rep she gets a lot of the time.
