Cosplay | Princess Peach (Amiibo Dress)

I’m so excited to share with you my latest costume, Princess Peach! I made her Amiibo dress for PAX East 2016. I actually made a different Peach for last year’s PAX – but I cut it short into a cocktail dress because my skills just weren’t there yet.

If you told me a year ago that I would be able to create her gorgeous ball gown, I wouldn’t have believed you. That just goes to show that the more you practice and create, the better you’ll get! I need to remember this little fact a lot more in life.

Cosplay | Shinoa – Owari no Seraph

Today I have a fun post…I’m sharing my Hiiragi Shinoa cosplay, from the anime Owari no Seraph! I wore this to Anime Boston 2016.

I’m very pleased with how the whole costume turned out, I spent a lot of time sewing and even more time making the scythe. But I am loving how these photos came out!

Cosplay | Kyoko Sakura

Alternately titled: Snacking On Pocky And Apples.

I’m *officially* a magical girl!

I love how sassy Kyoko is, and it was a last-minute decision to make her “casual” outfit last summer (and I’m just now getting around to posting, oops).

Costume Details

Wig: Ponytail wigs usually don’t agree with me (I even have 3 from Arda) so at the last minute I bought this wig on amazon hoping it would fit better than Arda, and it did!. I only did minimal trimming to the bangs and sprayed the ponytail pieces to stay up. While the wig was relatively comfortable, though as you can see from these photos, photographed a bit shiny. I’d recommend tougher fibers (and splurging on an Arda or Epic Cosplay) if you’re doing this cosplay. If shininess doesn’t matter, definitely go with amazon!

Hoodie: I used an old hoodie to pattern this out, which I found to be easier than my original mock-up using a pattern. Since it’s not fitted, it was ok to have the hoodie fit a little big. I just traced my favorite hoodie on the fabric and cut it out. The fabric is a stretch jersey and the white stripes were hand painted on before I sewed the whole thing together. The center is doubled in fabric so it’s really warm. I bought a duel zipper on amazon but the bottom doesn’t unzip all the way so it kind of ended up as a pullover :>

Shorts: Super simple…I just hot glued fur onto a pair of denim shorts. Done!

Boots: Bought on amazon for $20.
