Some funny photo of Perona and Mihawk <3!!!~~
Oh my my this costume was just cursed *laugh*~
I made this costume to fit to my bf's character. He is a huge One Piece fan and we decided to cosplay Mihawk and Perona for an event in Italy. But this costume was really cursed. First of all the wig did not arrive, so I had to order a really expensive one from my own country. And sadly the pink is not the right pink shade. Then the con in Italy got skipped to another date and we could not go anymore. So we wanted to wear it for Tracon. I totally ruined my umbrella....it looked just horrible T_T....the we made a shooting after the con and I fogot to put on my hairpins for 2/3 of the shooting time
SUUUPER depressing T_T~~~
About the sewing and materials:
costume is made mostly out of polyester. I needed this syntetic material to be able to melt the edges. Perona has this tiny bows on the edges of her skirt and also the "lace" on collar and sleeves are a bow. I used a technique that I saw on a costume of my friends, the Rainbow Riders. I cut out the exact form I wanted with a scissor and then melted a bit the edges with a "soldering iron" /en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solderin…
. The white parts and the black emblem on the chest are also made this way. After I cut them out and "burned" the edges, I attached them with the help of "Vliesofix" also known as "Bondaweb" (www.vlieseline.de/English/Prod…
on the other fabric. The edges of the red fabric burned in black, coz the fabric had some black colored fabric inside. Usually it stays the same color (like you see on the white parts).
The crown and the belt is made out of Worbla (www.cast4art.de/index_english.…
! I think the crown is the prettiest part *_*~~ he did such a great job on it!
