—————————————————————————————————

I love wearing this costume.  It’s very easy to move around in, and I enjoy how the jacket came out.

The shorts are made out of a nice lycra material and I used the same material for the top of the pockets.  The shoes are store bought shoes that I painted to be the same color as Utena’s.  I also just sewed on the bow for that so it looks like the art.

Underneath the jacket, I have the grey tank top made so I can spontaneously play basketball at any time.

This costume is fully transformable, so I can take it from school uniform to prince in no time~! The sheer skirt rests separately on my waist, and it’s pleated to mimic how it is in the anime version.  If I remade the costume now, I’d probably do the ruffly manga version.  The epaulets are plastic balls I sawed in half (lol bad idea), and painted, the gold around them is model magic (also bad idea, because model magic turns gold paint green after time).  The white parts I call the “cigars” and they’re rolled up fabric glued to itself.

I spray painted the cord, and casted a gem, then I made a triangle out of sculpey.  They’re all held together in some bizarre manner that I came up with.

The cuffs of the costume attach separately, and I used cute little red rose buttons for them~

I met the character designer for Utena and he signed my epaulets *_*

My sword was made by Pikminlink and it’s just perfect and it’s my favorite prop ever *_*

The Anthy cosplaying with me is Sundari-chan
