Waaaaaah new costume debuts!! At Anime Expo 2013!

Tooootally love the Macross-ness of this photo! A note: I was appropriately taller as Sheryl but with the wide angle and me leaning forward, look not as tall :p

Hanime is a long-time friend of mine, but we have never jointly worked on a cosplay group together. We both share a love for singing, anime, and floofy costumes, so when we watched Macross Frontier together, the idea to cosplay Sheryl and Ranka together was born!

We bought the same brocade satin and chiffons and each sewed the costumes over the course of a few weeks. I used two wigs from Arda Wigs to create Sheryl's elaborate wig, and Hanime's wig was from EpicCosplay. Sheryl's wig was definitely my biggest focus on this costume. It took 3 days of work to make, and required some outside the box thinking and creative finagling. I wanted to make the Oiran wig come apart for transport, so everything is in pieces that hook and stick into the wig. I used foam and Worbla for shaping, and spent a whole day painstakingly gluing strands of wig hair down to make the hair fans.
Here is a collage of how I made the wig: [link]

I made the obi designs with heat transfer vinyl, more info here: [link]
My Kanzashi flowers were made by the talented Ashleigh: [link]
