Taken at Otakon 2012 - Habour fountainWEBSITE
I finished up her season 2 costume in time for Otakon 2012. I also dyed and straightened my hair for the occasion. It was horribly humid that weekend, so my hair was a mess by the end of the day. Luckily my shoot was first thing in the morning.
The top is made out of quilting cotton with little stretch. I didn't have time to add fasteners so I sewed myself into the costume in the morning and cut myself out of it in the afternoon. Fasteners wouldn't hold down the fabric as flush as I would want it, so I will be remaking the top with spandex for a better fit once I find the right shade. Those are new, more accurate hair-clips, plus I trimmed the fur on the shall. My pants are photographing very light, probably due to the texture and the contrast with the other blues, so I may have to remake those as well.
