Awesome wig styling: :iconastellecia:
Help in fan construction: :iconmint-ice-tea:

I can never, ever, stop telling people how AWESOME and how KIRA KIRA this StarDriver group is! It's my first major group in Aussie, such great memories build with such epic people!!

This costume is construction bitch! Even the skirt decide that it will be a bitch and made me did it twice! Hardest part is making sure nothing falls off or flaps too much when I am wearing it, and *ClamWings really saved me with the collar patterns, *Astellecia saved my horrible wig by swapping wigs with me and styling it so nicely... I can't stop :heart:ing her XDD

Funny bit is that when we decided to do Marino/Mizuno, we were like YEAH TWIN CHARACTERS... and THEN Marino turns out to be a clone/decoy for Mizuno.. hahhaa.... Empresss... I can never stop being your decoy, intentionally or not. :love:

Thank you~

The way I make my costume is reallllyyy ghetto =P It worked for me but I am not sure if it will work for anyone else. Here are some of the stuff I did:
Skirt is a pleat skirt
Sleeves are just really big rectangles with a long sleeve cutting at the end to attach to collar
Top is a yukata top pattern, just cut anyway as much front as deem necessary to show the boobage XD and male a collar
Back-design is a large spade, with cardboard inside to keep the shape, best way is to attached the mid part to your wig with safely pins, so it stands.
Fan is modified from this tutorial [link]

Hope that helps~
