Exclamation Shiina Angel Beats Help!

I'm trying to make a cosplay of Shiina from Angel Beats but I have this slight color problem. Okay so I extracted the color from this design on photoshop and it says purple-blue but it looks more purple on the skirt. But everyone I've seen in photos and on the nendroids have done blue skirts. I'm still scared about being accurate. I want to go with what the eye dropper picked up on photoshop but I've seen everyone else in cosplay photos do blue. Help ? This is the photo I used for reference.




Thanks for the help everyone !! Really appreciate it.

You could always custome dye the fabric? Like mix purple and blue to get more of a light indigo?

Greetings setsuna77,

According to that reference photo, in no way does that skirt look blue to me. It looks like a cool purple (on the blue side of purple, as opposed to the red side of purple). If it were me, I'd either dye fabric to match (if it's a fabric that takes dye) or try to find a close color match in the fabric type I chose.

I think it's blue in other pictures?

If you click on Shiina's picture, it's the same picture as your scan, but the colour shows more blue.
But it you wanted to do purple it should be fine, I have a few cosplays where the colour changes every reference picture so I didn't know what colour to make the cosplay...

For fabric dying, maybe try this thread: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=227414

Oh okay maybe I'll look into that photo then. > < Fabric color choosing is so difficult. But thank you for the dyeing thread. It looks really helpful. I'm re-looking into the photo and I think the closest match is lavender. ^^; wish me luck..
