This is my newest costume Tsuyuri Kohane from xxxHolic Art work from Calendar 2008. This is the first costume that I didn't make all of it by myself. Amazing maggifan helped me with the fabric hand painting. She did all the painting by hand!!!! She is awesome!!!
I made the head piece, it was so difficult to cut all the flowers shape. I made like thirty additional of those flowers that ended up breaking in the process. The wig although you can't see it very well, the edges are curl up that I made. It took me about three hours to do all the curls. I made all the three layers of kimonos and the Obi. I also did all the make up for both maggifan and I. Although it didn't come out as I wanted but we were in a hurry so I did it as quickly as possible. The round purple thing with all the lace. In that piece there are 55 yards of lace and 18 jingle bells.
In this picture we were trying to do the recreation but it came out meh... Oh well. I'm very pleased with the results of this costume although I would have like it to wear it more at Fanime.

These costumes look so beautiful. I totally feel your pain about the flowers; a friend and I did Sakura and Yuuko's kimonos last year and they were a total pain. What is up with Clamp and their love of Sakura flowers all over their stuff???
Anyways, you both look amazing!
