Magi - Kougyoku Ren by Calssara Magi - Kougyoku Ren by Calssara
My princess costume <3!  I love it very much!
Kougyoku is such a funny tsundere character....I love characters like this.
I totally adored her outfit and together with Elffi as Sinbad we cosplayed Magi together.

About the dress:
Like in every series...it looks totally different on EVERY reference. I decided for the anime version because I had propper color references from all sides for it. My form of my dress is a mix between all artworks/screenshots I could find. I hope I managed to get a good balanced mix. I gave special effort in choosing the fabrics this time. She is a princess and needs something better than cotton *laugh*. So I used bridal satin, gown taft and silk for the dress. The fabrics where the most expensive part of the costume.

About the wig/hair:
Her hair is more magenta in the anime and more red in the manga. I took the freedom to use more RED than magenta, simply because I like it more *laugh*~~~. I used a ponytail wig for Kyoko from Puella Magi and restyled it for Kougyoku. The loops are made with red felt and wire, covered with wig hair. I made two versions. Here you se ethe (lots better) version b XD~....I am still a noob in styling wigs...it took me a while to figure out how to make it.


I am very happy about the pretty photos we could make together with Midgard *_*! I hope more will follow soon!

Hello I'm a big fan of your Cosplay. :)
I want to ask a question!
I'm going to cosplay Kougyoku on October with my friends. I wonder how did you made the white pattern on the black parts ? And how many yarn of fabric did you use (for every color).

I am thinking of making my own Kougyoku costume and was wondering how you made the green ribbon that goes around the back! This dress is amazing!

I was wondering how you did the edges on the pink part. Is it bias bonding or? ^^ It looks amazing :)

Hello Calssara ^.^ I recently just started following you on DeviantArt, but I've actually been aware of your cosplays for a very long time, and you've been a great inspiration to me and my friends.
So it turns out I'm also going to be cosplaying Kougyoku! However, I'm still fairly new at cosplaying and many things are still difficult for me. I've been stuck for awhile on how to create the pink panels on the hips, would you mind me asking how you did them?

Your cosplay is fantastic and you look very beautiful as Kougyoku and I want to do her justice as well : )
Thanks!

Hey :D!
Thanks a lot for this kind message ^^
I am happy that I could inspire you.
I already made some construction advices here

and here

For the stiffness of the pink parts I used "interfacing" (also sometimes called Stiffener). Just ask for this in the sewing store. They will know what it is. Take the stiffest and thickest one ^.^~

I hope this helps you ^^

Calssara-senpai! Una pregunta, de qué marca es su peluca? I've been looking for a Kougyoku's wig for so long and I can't find a proper tone ;O; I want a wig with the tone you use because well... it's more similar to the manga xD and I know I'll have to styling it but I want it so bad ;3;

I don't know the anime or the manga. That said, I'd have paid more attention to the cosplay with Elffi if you'd published this shot which shows off the work you always put into costumes before the joint shots.

Hey :D!
well sadly we did not HAVE those photos when we wore the costume steh first time ^^.
It is always a trouble of time and possibility. Mostly our shootings are not made at the cons (conventions ahve usually very poor backgrounds!), so we need to schedule shoots and search for locations and photographers. This shoot was made last year in August, but our photographer did not send me the result until yesterday :(((

So soemtimes it is impossible to control which photo you will have at first and what can you post.

paws4thot Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2014
Fair enough; it was just a personal observation of what I'd ideally like. I agree about convention backgrounds (presuming Anime and cosplay cons mostly use convention centres: I mostly go to general SF cons, which normally use good convention hotels).

:iconcalssara:
Calssara Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
We never have cons in Hotels in Germany ^^
It is alwas a local convention hall. And IF there is a nice place for photos, it wll be occupied all day long XD....so we usually make all our photos at seperate shooting locations after the cons ^^.
And even if we make them in time, some photographers take AGES to send you the pics :(((((~~~ cannot help it T_T

:iconpaws4thot:
paws4thot Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2014
I genuinely did not know that about con venues. Of the convention centres I know, exactly one has good places for doing SF costume shoots (and none have them for fantasy) but that one has enough space that several people could shoot at once.
