This would be nice to do for Smash 2018. I am an idiot, it’s probably going to be cold and windy and here I am thinking IT’D BE GREAT TO NOT BE WARM AT ALL FOR THE ENTIRE DAY!
Update 2018-07-15: well I made it, skip down for photos. It’s not 100% complete with all the bling I want on it, but it’s in a satisfactory state. I’ll fix it up for the next Love Live concert viewing event, it’ll be nice.
💖YASSSSS QUEEEN 💖
This is gonna be troublesome if I can’t get all the trimming and stuff locally. Kinda reminds me of the Arabian Dancer set from Love Live.
It’s worth noting that I see the title “Manatsu wa Dare no Mono” popping up in some places, and also a costume very similar to this but much racier – what’s going on there eh??
This looks to be a clip of Manatsu wa Dare no Mono, but it’s the Inferno Phoenix costume and you can see it in motion with all the necessary details: https://streamable.com/vxnrf
This was kind of ridiculous to say the least. I spent the leadup to Smash lining up all the stuff I’d need, and then… made it all the night before, in typical cosplayer fashion. Bought the last of what I needed on Friday, went home and sewed all night, decided it definitely wouldn’t be finished for use on Saturday.
So I go to Smash anyway, have a pleasant enough time, and attend a visiting friend’s birthday dinner on Saturday night. Then go to AGS, have a full evening, head home and… nope, give up. I slept for 7hrs, having been awake for… 39hrs prior. Wake up, go to church, head home and finish sewing. Make some compromises, because there’s definitely no bead-threading happening today. Finish up and head to Smash in time for the end of Sunday. Have a nice time all the same, feel pleased with the work.
