First photos of a new costume I made for Ikkicon. I found this artwork piece by mangaka Carnelian and fell completely in love with the design!

It's Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier, but as an adorable pirate girl! I happened to have very similar over the knee lace up boots, as well as 2 yards of deep purple Madonna velvet and black leather on hand, so I decided to push back my other cosplay plans to make this costume.

Construction notes: I started out by serging strips of magenta organza together, then hand ruffling the lengths and making a multi-layer ruffle skirt with them. I used the same organza to make the top and scalloped edged ruffle sleeves. I adorned the top and skirt with sequin trim because I thought it would be very Sheryl lol.
The captain's coat was fun and annoying to make. In hindsight I used three of the most difficult to work with fabrics on one garment, what was I thinking? The coat is velvet lined with two-tone taffeta, with all the black leather trim home made and carefully sewn on. I modified a pattern heavily and drafted parts of the coat on myself. It is reinforced with an extra layer of material inside, and boning.
The gold buttons have anchors on them which I thought was cute. I then made the ascot and garter belt, and covered a $5 Halloween felt pirate hat in black pleather left over from another costume. I also happened to have a nice beaded gold trim and purple and lavender feathers to embellish it with. The heart was kind of last minute put together and I may redo it in the near future. I did find some time to finally make Sheryl's microphone out of a mish mash of materials. Figuring out the braiding was interesting lol.

All in all, the costume came together in about 3 days of work and I am pretty happy with it! The colors are so cute together and I love my pirate hat. I am taking off the bows on the coat because they cover up all the arrow trim I spent so long making and stitching on. Definitely plan to wear it again soon, and do a location photoshoot!

Thank you to Brent LaVelle [link] for the studio shots!

Hello Yaya, I was wondering, what eye contacts did you get for this costume? I need to find some that are pale blue, but that don't look too artificial! Those look great :D

I like these shots a little better than the first one you posted just for the fact that we can see the overall details of the outfit. I just love the color combination of this piece. I am so glad you found that art and were inspired by it!
