Belldandy - Ah My Goddess by yayacosplay Belldandy - Ah My Goddess by yayacosplay
*********** Yaya on Facebook [link] ***********
*********** Yaya on Twitter [link]


This costume was made in 2005, I wore it to Anime Expo, and again to CMJC, the big convention in Monterrey, Mexico, in March 2006. All these photos were taken by consplayers.com, thank you so much.

Construction notes: I have always loved creator Kosuke Fujishima's beautiful illustrations of Belldandy with the floating bow with sashes, delicate wings and fishtail dress, so I decided to combine my favorite elements into one outfit. I chose light pink instead of white because I didn't want my dress to end up looking too much like a wedding gown, and Belldandy is known to wear pink :P.
The dress has hand stitched pearls scattered all over the front, boning for support and laces in the back. White sheer layers accent the flare at it's bottom as well as the shoulders, with a matching massive bow and draping sashes in the back.
I also made some jewelry for this costume, such as the necklace and some bracelets that I forgot to wear >_< at the con.

To create Belldandy's signature hairstyle, I started off with a multi-toned wig and added an insane amount of hair extensions to it. To match the wig's beautiful streaks and colors, I chose about 4 differently colored extensions and blended them together, cutting and trimming here and there. I then sewed the various pieces into the wig, creating the long bangs and ponytail, finishing everything off with the sheer sashes and flowers.

As for the wings, I made them in a similar way as the "Midnight Wings" black pair, but sticking fairly closely to the signature AMG style angel wings. I also needed these to be smaller, lighter and thus easier to transport. They fold together for transport and are fairly bouncy and adjustable, and the dress laces right over them.

You did a great job!! Isnt that great about individual hair extensions - you can cut, color or do anything you need to do to match your hair or wig. There are so many different colored extensions on the market now that you will be able to change your hair color of length 7 days a week. I found a good site for the colored extensions [link]

The dress is wonderful, you are very attractive, but Belldandy is not 'your' character. You make a fitting Sailor Mars, and, if you have known unrequited love, you'll do a great Sailor Pluto. (B/c she also has Mars' dark hair, and you cosplayed as Mars^^). And, if you ever felt like the world were on your shoulders, you could get in character as Sailor Saturn. ;) That's the third black-haired Sailor soldier, if you are wondering why I am mentioning the 'obscure' ones. :P

You are very photogenic, and you are very pretty! I like your face and your eyes! <3

Very Nice Yaya. Another 10 out of 10. :winner:
a couple questions though.

Where did you get those very long feathers?
and...
How much space does it take you to store all your costumes?

Oh my, what a BEAUTIFUL JOB!

Ah! My Goddess! Was one of the first manga I ever read, so it kind of has a special meaning to me. You've done a stunning rendition.

And it's really sad that your forgot the jewelry! :noes:

Love the water effect on the second photo...

This cosplay is beautiful! I like the way the pinks goes on the dress, it´s very discret, does not looks like a wedding dress at all. Congratulations for another absolutely amazing work!

Hugs from Brazil!
