Why I chose to make this costume:

Myoubi wears way too many gorgeous outfits to choose a favorite from, so I decided to take elements from various designs and combine them into a costume. Inspired by the melancholy premise of the story, I made a burgundy/gold gothic Lolita doll dress based loosely on the reference images. I created every single piece of this outfit, including the bird wings. Most of the costume required working without a pattern, and I learned a lot about gathering ruffles, making feather wings, and working with different textures. The main dress is made of an incredible two-sided French shantung; for the complimenting parts I used casa lace and crepe-back gold satin. My favorite element would have to be the lace-up sleeves.

Thoughts on this costume:

I’m just happy I had the chance to make this costume; it’s definitely one of my personal favorites. Since completing it I have not had to revise it in any way—something I am rather proud of. I have been able to get a lot of use out of this costume as well which is great, too.
