Alichino - Sacrament by darcywilliam Alichino - Sacrament by darcywilliam
Hello hello again~ Hope everyone has had a really lovely weekend!

In coming; wall of text! Here with some new work finally! Really excited to finally share this costume!
I have always really wanted to cosplay Ryoko but I didn't know which version, with :iconwildmushrooms: as stunning Myoubi I had just the right motivation! Really wanted to upload a pair shot but only have this one so far sorry ;3;

This costume was quite challenging to me, with only one reference picture and and panels and seams running all over the costume I had to have a long think about how to tackle it! It took quite a long time to draft and mock up, I kept deciding I didn't like a certain shape or this part wasn't the right proportion! The biggest challenge was to decide how to get into this costume! I managed by having the front panel press stud up and under neath was a zip down to the waist! In the end I did really have a great time sewing it! Even though all the top stitching drove me crazy since this material tore up on the machine grrr! I found a good way to make pleather bias atleast! Use a hair straightener and sit in front of the TV! I really learnt a lot from this costume though and quite proud of it!

Unfortunately though I wasn't able to complete it for my deadline and :iconwildmushrooms: had to shoot alone, her shots were gorgeous but it was my first time I really just couldn't finish and I was quite crushed ;; felt so bad to let someone down ;; yes I had made 3 costumes along with it but should have done better orz ;;;

Luckily we were able shoot again in Singapore with our friend Brian! We did a studio shoot with friends to help and we both really had fun even though we were quite rushed haha! I had a horrid cold which was deadly in Singapore, sorry for my red nose in the shot haha ;;;

Thank you to Brian for shooting and having fun with us, to Amano for the smoke machine lend, I really appreciate it! To :icontempura-sushi: and Leo for helping out too! You guys are great! Last to beautiful :iconwildmushrooms: for being perfect as Myoubi and with organisation, sorry for letting you down the first shoot D: ;;;

There really isn't all that much alichiino cosplay out there which is a crying shame.
Comparing this with a picture of the actual character...your resemblance to him is uncanny O.O
Kudos to you for a great cosplay!
