Sailor Xiao (pronounced shee'ou
) is a product of my friend Himeno's mind. You can learn more about Xiao and her friends at Frozen Fire: Liquid Flame
This is my second costume I've finished. I had a boatload of help from me mum-in-law, *SleyTheDent
. She is my coach and more moral compass.
Anyway, the only things we didn't make here are the gloves (eBay) the wig ($14) and the boots (but we did put the stripes on them). Everything else we made.
I am IN LOVE with this costume, and super super proud of it. The bodysuit was basically a nightmare, and it was a HUGE learning process for me and mum for working with 4-way stretch. Some parts, like the bow and collar, took two tries. Other stuff, like the arm guards, we nailed on the first try. Actually, we did the skirt twice too! Mum kind of did most of the second skirt though.
I made all the accessories and there are close ups in my gallery.
The skirt is way too short on the short end. Seriously, my butt is hanging out all over the place. LOL
Oh well. ^_^
This costume debuted at Animazement 2009! Ty *Adrastia217 for adjusting the lighting for me
