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
