Goddess Belldandy by yayacosplay Goddess Belldandy by yayacosplay

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.

Simple yet elegant, which describes a lot of your costumes. Everyone loves Bell, and she loves everyone, though Urd is more fun. Excellent work.
