Costume: “Kagome” Source: Anime Show “Inuyasha”

Also for Halloween 2004 this was the second costume I ever made. For the skirt I used a pattern but tweeked it a bit to fit the character. For the top the person decided she wanted a sweatshirt because we were gonig to be outside at night and didn’t want to be cold. The collar and cuffs I made a pattern for from scratch and just attached them to the sweatshirt. All in all I really liked the outcome.

This costume was also made for Holloween 2004, but was revived for Anime Expo 2006. It’s made from purple and black cotton fabric. The staff was hand made by me using dowling rods, cork-board, clay, hotglue, and tape. Then I added the metal rings and painted the whole thing with acrylic paint. This outfit was the hardest one I’ve made so far. It doesn’t seem like it would be that complicated but the characters outfit actually defies gravity, there is no way that the purple piece is just tied in place like that. It wouldn’t work. But I think I did a good job making it work.

This was the first costume I ever made. It was originally for Holloween 2004 but I also revived it for Anime Expo 2006. I used commercial patterns but had to alter the design to fit the outfit. The fabric I choose was red cordiroy to give the garment some shape and so it would be able to hold the form. The necklace was also made by me. I painted some round white beads purple/black to form the main body of the necklace and then made each of the fangs by hand out of clay.
