Chihaya from The iDOLM@STER
Event(s): Mechacon 2010
WOW. Just looking at these photos is making me cringe! This costume was for a group that a guy I met on the Mechacon forums was putting together. I knew nothing about iDOLM@STER but agreed to join in anyway. (And also dragged a bunch of my friends along)
I’m pretty sure this dress is just a tube with another tube and a rectangle with some pink felt sewn on. I remember buying the felt at quilting store, but I’m pretty sure the black fabric was just a sheet. (I also wouldn’t doubt that the zipper came from the leftover bits and pieces of Kairi) I didn’t think to pin the shawl piece into place, so I legitimately held it on the whole time.
The gloves came from a Claires store in a mall two hours away. I dunno why I thought I needed to go to that mall to find gloves, but hey, I found some! (And I still have them!) This was also my first wig! I think I spent like, thirty dollars on it too because I didn’t know any better. I took terrible care of it, but actually used it for a few costumes later down the line.
