Kagura from InuYasha WIP

First things first, unfortunately I did not make this costume (I wish I was that talented lol). I bought it secondhand from a fellow cosplayer, nikkib197 from Cosplay.com Marketplace. So all kudos go to her for making these lovely kimonos, fan, and earrings! ^_^
Anywho, this is about 80% done (hence the WIP in the title lol). I'm just waiting on my red contacts and elf ears to arrive in the mail. Other than that, I'm gonna add black feathers to the end of the earrings (right now it's just black string), add red ribbon to the fan and touch up the paint, get two white feathers for my hair, and possibly paint the white designs on the blue kimono. I'm thinking I may also dye my hair darker before con time.

Here's a reference pic:



And here's me:

I would suggest more dramatic eye makeup. Thick eyeliner and a darker shade of lipstick to match Kagura's lipstick. The eyeliner is already thick but she definitely has some eyeliner wings, can't tell if you added them in the pictures though.

You should get a black wig. Black dye is really damaging to hair. I dyed my hair black once and I will never do it again, wigs are always the best choice.

But..I'm pretty sure these forums are actually for people who made their costume. I can't really critique the costume if I don't know if you can actually do a bit of sewing to enhance it. Just wanted to give a bit of advice since I do love InuYasha and talking about makeup sooo yep.~
