Shinku from Rozen Maiden
Series: Rozen Maiden
Debut: Youmacon 2008
Retired: Youmacon 2008
I made this costume after reading the manga and falling in love with Shinku's additute. I was my first major not-sailor moon costume and I was excited to make it. It is made out of real velvet for dress, cape, hat, and bow. I hand made the flowers that are on the hat. It was the first time I styled a wig which was scary. I have over 100 hours in this costume. Btw the bear in the pictures belongs to a friend of mine.
Since I made this costume, I have taken it apart and it is hidden it in a drawer. I still have nightmares about this costume. But someday I will remake it. Oh and funny story about this costume. I brought it into my theater class as a demo for how I would design a Little Red Riding Hood costume for a play. I got an A+ in the class b/c of this costume!!
