Yukari- ParaKiss

Hey!
I am currently working on my latest costume for Anime Boston's Hall Cosplay Contest. I was hoping that you could give me some possible critiques =).

I am making Yukari's Fashion Show Gown made by George and the crew. I made a couple changes to the look because I have seen some amazing cosplays of this gown and I wanted to make it my own. First, the design is made entirely out of rhinestones, 30,000 to be exact in the skirt alone. Originally, the dress was made in Isabella's pearls. I changed the drape and silhouette of the skirt to look more like victorian ball gown. I also added bows to the pickups to the skirt to give the pickups a finished quality.

If you could be so kind as to give me your comments and opinions, I would really appreciate it! Thank you soooooo muchhhhhh!

*Edit 5/1- More Photos of the bodice have been added!
*Edit 6/2- A finished image of the dress is added to my Gallery!!!!

It's quite beautiful, and your attention to detail is amazing. Although you've made some changes it still looks like it fell out of the pages of Ai Yazawa's manga. *^* Please post updates when you finish the bodice?

@Throat- THANK YOU! That is very settling to hear =)

@Touch- THANKS!! I just added images of the bodice!

The bodice is 70% finished....I need to apply the ruffles, the straps, the lining, and the zipper. The sleeves will be a separate monster =)

So stunning. *_* The slimming at the waist is incredible(really random I know XD) The ruffles are very nice and fit very well with the rest of the dress.

Hey Guys!
Thanks for all you love, support, and comments! Anime Boston was a BLAST! Acting like a model all weekend was super-duper fun, even though the 6" heels cracked both my toenails and gave more blisters than I can count.....FUN!

Finished gown- http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3392200/

Here is a video of the gown in action- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kJV3LdmaeY

SOOOOO MANY SPARKLES!!!!

If you see anything that needs fixing, please let me know so I can fix her before Otakon!

Was so excited to see this in person I wasn't even sure what to say; I was sitting right next to you for the walk-ons. You were absolutely fantastic and it was amazing to see you go across the stage with all of the sparkling from the lights

It is gorgeous! *_* I really hope I run into you at Otakon so I can see this in person.

I'm guessing you are ignoring all of the roses in the hair and such?

@Reilala- THANK YOU!!! It was wonderful meeting you! Congratz on your award!

@Touchmon- Im sure you will find me; just look for a big, blue, sparkly disco ball! =P I chose to make the tiara, necklace, and earrings which were confiscated by the faculty prior to the show. The roses were an improvised last minute decision made by George =)
