Garden Pansy - Sakizo cosplay


Dear all,

as you’ve noticed, due to my work schedule I’m unfortunately no longer able to be on DA as often as I’d love to. However, I hope you can still appreciate my super belated comments and replies (I’ll always try to  reply to every single comment!), and if I post something new once in a blue moon!


My latest cosplay, the Garden Pansy from sakizo’s artbook “Alice’s World 2”! It’s the singing pansy  from Alice in Wonderland!

As usual, this was a result of a group effort: suzaku3 has done aaaall of the sewing (those ruffles seemed endless!), Kinnara designed the long sleeves, and helped me a lot with the fishnets and in the lace hunting quest, my boyfriend Ahkan built the crinoline cage and the arm-cage-thing with me (and literally painted the sheer purple tights on me, whilst I had them, and I… did all the rest XD But I’m nothing without my wonderful and talented friends.


It was a long project that we made in our spare time, piece by  piece, over one year. I’ve enjoyed myself losing my mind in searching, painting and assembling together more than 20 different kinds of laces and trims to stay as accurate as I could to the details of the refence. Sakizo's laces are all very distinctive and visible, so I've tried my best to choose them and "create" the motives. I’ve also made the pansies myself, starting from loose white petals and then trimming, painting and sewing them together. There are still a pair of things to fix, but I hope the costume can match even a little bit the wonderful design.


I’m helplessly in love with Sakizo’s designs and I’m not going to stop cosplaying her works anytime soon! :heart:
Thanks for your attention!

Grazie cara come sempre del tuo supporto!! Felice che il nostro lavoro ti sia piaciuto! :iconsweethugplz:
Ci sono stati momenti di delirio come a mezzanotte della sera prima a finire di montare la gabbia, con noi che cantavamo "Che gabbioni Holly e Benji, gabbionissimi"... ma alla fine è andato tutto bene XDDDD
Spero tu stia bene, ti mando un grandissimo abbraccio!
Magnificent!!! Both the cosplay and the beautiful cosplayer :heart:_____:heart:

E te ne avrei cuciti altri 6000 metri, perché poi uno ti vede così e si scioglie! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
E' tutto meraviglioso, a rivedere le foto e ri-notare tutti i particolari, che funzionano così bene insieme! Tanto amore per la manica cicciona, per il contrasto delle ruches, per la maxi-pansé e per il contrasto viola/verde! (e per teeeeeee!!!!)

....Sommo non ce l'avrebbe permesso, perché lo avremmo mandato a comprare rocchetti di filo ogni tre per due! XDDD
GRAZIE di tutto mia amatissima, questo vestito sarebbe stato solo un'infinita serie di striscine di stoffa senza di te! <3<3<3<3 A guardarlo ora non mi sembra ci sia poi così tanta roba... ma non la pensavamo così un mese fa  XD
Sono contenta che tutto il planning abbia funzionato, ancora una volta lavoro di squadra is de uei! E mi hai anche salvato il dietro della parrucca, come sempre!! <3

...non parlare troppo di viola e verde che manca ancora un fioccoooooh!!! XDDDDDDDD
