Dir En Grey
Why I chose to make this costume:
I thought this had a nice 80’s rockin’ style and finally satisfied my craving of doing another J-music costume.
How I made this costume:
I created the shirt through altering a pattern tremendously and made the leather flaps by drafting my own pattern. I spent long hours embellishing this costume according to Kyo's photos and I also styled the wig. Aside from making everything, I also did my own makeup at AX and Dragoncon. It was a very fun costume to construct.
Thoughts on this costume:
Love the 80's look!
