Omikami-Amaterasu



So I made an Okami cosplay for Cos & Effect 2012 based on a junihitoe and the original artwork from Amaterasu.

Here's my concept art: http://shattered-moonlight.deviantar...ath=/#/d55ek38

Here's the original piece:http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__...uiOkamiden.jpg

And this is what I created: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3276659/

http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3277428/
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3276658/


Please give me feed back in this piece.

All deadlinks. Probably need to set the photo's privacy settings to public.

I think it looks amazing! I want to do a gijinka of Gekigami (the tiger brush god). I just need to wait until I finalize things on the house me and my fiance are buying since my sewing machine is all put away and I have no room to sew in the tiny place we're styaing now. ;-;

There we go! Yeah coscom photos work better than FB lol.

Yeah you can tell that a lot of time was put into the linework on the sleeves. It all came together really well, makeup, wig and costume.

Sorry I don't have any input on improvements, I'm not strong in sewing but I enjoyed looking at it a lot!

Thank you so much for the input, it helps more than you think.

lovely! clean lines, great fit to your body, tidy finish and assembly, well proportioned accessories and hair.
The only critique I can offer- and it is very minor- is you opted to do rolled hems on the sleeve edges. Granted, there are a lot of them, but doing a proper cuff or even using a matching bias tape to create an ultra smooth line (like you got on your front closure with the red line) would make the difference between "wow! she made a great costume!" and "woah... professional costume incoming.. wish I could afford to pay someone for that" very nice work.

Thanks you so much, I plan to remake this cosplay somewhere down this line and I'll keep that in mind.
