Shoujo Kakumei Utena Cosplay

I haven't seen a general Utena cosplay thread here yet, which actually quite surprised me, so I thought I'd start one. Does anyone have any stories, ideas, questions, or advice? Maybe photos you'd like to share? I have a couple pics in my gallery, but I'm waiting to get any more till I actually get a wig that looks decent, which should be soon.

With all the SKU cosplay I've seen here, I'm hoping to get some of the fans together, and maybe even schedule groups at cons or something!

Hey, I've made Juri costume before, gah, it sucks. Looks like a night shirt. I should have altered the shirt more....

I also made a Juri costume where the shirt was too loose. I did buy a shirt with darts, but I guess it was too big- or better yet, the size that fits my bulging arms is too large on my wasp waist. I used a lot of fabric glue and even some Scotch tape, since my skill level was not so high back then. Now I would happily sew it. It was still a good effort, and I like how the cuff details turned out. Hardest task was the ring, since it was made of sculpy and thus looked very cheap and ghetto. There's a pic of it in my gallery. I used a skirt and added ruffles to the shirt to make it dressier.

UTENA, did someone say Utena? Bwahahahaha..........
I love utena cosplay. Me and Flexei are going to cosplay every main character. The only costumes I have left to make are Anthy, Akio, Mikage, & Chida. (We should have those for Tekkoshocon)

Ruka: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=97796
Miki: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=98323
Black Rose Wakaba & Saionji: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto....=615 3&page=1
Kozue: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto....t=500 &page=1
Nanami: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto....t=500 &page=1
Juri: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto....t=500 &page=1
Wakaba:http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto....t=500 &page=3
Shirori: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto....=615 3&page=1

These are my new utena costumes we'll be wearing at Ohayocon:
Utena: http://www.rogueandflexei.com/cospla.../melutena1.jpg
Nanami Student Council:http://www.rogueandflexei.com/cospla...melnanami2.jpg
Touga: http://www.rogueandflexei.com/cospla...trubtouga1.jpg

I also have a Mitsuru costume for Flexei, but the wig hasn't come in. So I don't have any pictures of that costume yet. But rest assured he looks mighty dorky in it.

My cosplay group just did an Utena cosplay group at Numa rei no Con and we won 2nd best group skit and 2 Judge's awards (only one actually given to us though... grrrr)... I was Akio mwahahaha... I highly suggest anyone being one of the eeeeevil tan characters should buy some Ben Nye makeup and actually be tan.. though I look hella silly as Akio http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers...ostumeid=16663 because of my bad proportions... but my bangs kick all butt. ;p Making movie version will be fun... already did movie Juri (very out of character) years ago... at least as movie Akio I can fall out of windows and flip out of cars. ;p I'm with Rogue on the Utena cosplay obsession... I'd love to make Mikage, Rose Bride Saionji (it wouldn't work on me since I'm a girl though ^^;; I'd just be that chick in the green dress), pin-cushion Anthy (I'll find a way to do it someday), French aristocrat Juri, and duelist Nanami. Anyway, our group's pics will eventually be at http://www.accidentallydisplaced.com/juunishi/

Advice? MAKE SURE dueling shirts are not 2 sizes too big... I've seen that happen soooo many times... Rogue's Touga shirt is a fine example of one that fits correctly. Spend money on decent wigs... because wigs in such bold colors of junky make just makes you look like a clown.... and be prepared to snip and style the wig accordingly. Have fun acting in character... because that's what makes it really fun. :P *had soooooo much fun macking on people and being generally evil all Saturday* ^______^

You're the best Akio I've seen. (^_^) I need some of that makeup...where do you get it? I'm already pretty tan but I want to be tanner for my Anthy and Gerudo cosplays. I was going to use sunless tanner but I really don't feel like turning myself orange. (-_-'

I got an actual wig to go with my rose bride costume from witchwigs but they sent me the wrong color...so now I'm waiting for them to send me a new one. Hopefully I'll get it soon.

I've done duellist Utena, white uniform Utena, and duellist Nanami, and one day I hope to do movie-style Juri

My uber-dream cosplay is the Shiori Rosebride gown... I was toying with the idea of making that for my senior prom, that would be the greatest thing in the world I could do, but I'm not even sure I'm going. I'd like to do her duelist outfit too, but that's way on the backburner since I'm so afraid the form-fitting duelist costumes would just accent all the wrong curves on me

Mmm, Utena! I just re-watched the ending today.

I'm eventually making Nanami's outfit from the beginning of 'Cowbell of Happiness', and would like to make Juri's movie outfit, and Utena's red and white dress from 'The Prince Who Runs through the Night'. I've roped my boyfriend into cosplaying Touga, we always pick strange couples. He gave me the movie ring last year (really shocked me, I saw the ring box and thought he was proposing) but I may just use that for the series cosplays too.

Utena in the hizzay.

I might cave and wear a corset to get that 15" waist all the girls sport o.o

It's Ben Nye Cake Foundation... it doesn't make you breakout even because it's made for pro-theater folks. http://ec-securehost.com/WouldYouBelieve/ Get one way darker than you'll think you need .. .I got Light Egyptian or Calcutta I believe and you see how light that looks on me. ^^;;

Rogue, I love your costumes! And I agree with Tranquility. Scortia is the best Akio I've seen. You know what cosplay I haven't seen? Dios! He's cool though....even if he does seem to really like smoothies (or whatever those drinks were at the end) and merry-go-rounds.... (o.O)

I have done Kozue rosebride
http://www.icosplay.com/kozue.html

I have worn it a lot, and it is starting to really show that. So, I am thinking about making a different rosebride to replace Kozue. Got material for two different ones considering - now I just have to have time to sew.
