First pic back from Dragon*Con! Ever since my sister introduced me to the Song of Ice and Fire series in the beginning of this series, I knew I had to cosplay one of the characters for Dragon*Con! Especially since I knew was hard at work on her Daenerys. Ideally, I would've liked to cosplay Arya because I identify with her character more, but I'm far too tall and old (I'm old now?!) to do her. ;_; So Sansa, ahoy!
= Retro Space girl = Time to bring this back! Retro & 80s style! This is to one of the recent shoots I collaborated with It's pretty interesting to me because I have to make it futuristic but old at the same time XD So I did some research on this era. Hope you guys will enjoy the photos

I loved the movie "Perfect Blue" and Mima was such an easy costume to make and to wear around.
Construction notes: This costume came together easily enough, but I had a hard time at first deciding what color scheme to go with. In some scenes, the dress looks light pink with hot pink layers, but that would have been way too pink, even for me O_O. Instead I went with the promotional pictures and made the costume white and pink, with hot pink bows/red shoes. The top of the dress is boned and tailored to me, and I hand-gathered the layers to ensure they ruffled evenly and as per reference. Instead of making the garters out of the same fabric as the dress, I opted for lace, to give it more a lingerie look. The wig was interesting, as Mima's hair is so choppy in the movie. I ended up cutting and styling the hell out of a random black layered wig I found locally. I already owned the shoes, gloves and thigh highs. I got lucky and found a $5 microphone which got cut up and repainted for Mima.
