Time to start of my 2013 line-up with a bang! I love Clamp but I also do not like to make overdone costumes. So when I discovered their latest gem I was sold on making one of Hana's costumes. I will likely make another since there is so much good stuff to choose from.
I used a lot of techniques to make this costume: gradient dying, wonderflex, two tone painting, armour... and I can't wait to share more photos with you all. I did 3 shoots with this costume. I was a busy girl at Katsu.

You must have despised every slight breeze that came your way, with that headdress on.

Not really. It was pretty windy and I was ok. It was held on by one hair clip and it didn't sway. The dangling beads gave me more problems. If I walked too fast they would swing and hit me in the eye. :(

I took me about 2 hours to get ready in the morning - including eating, cut and styling the wig and finishing bits of the costume. The makeup took maybe 20 minutes. I used Mehron cream makeup with a makeup sponge. It goes on easy. So two layers, some powder and sealer and you are good to go.

That is impressive. You did an amazing job! I always wondered about using alabaster toned foundation on my skin and how to wear it without it looking offensive.

I think this is pure white and not alabaster - but it just a slight tone change.
I was going to the Clamp chapter cover aesthetic. All characters - regardless of their tone - show up snow white on the covers. If it was Hana's regular outfit I wouldn't do face/body paint.
