When I set out to make this senshi costume, I wanted to make it differently then how I have made all my other senshi costumes in the past. I wanted everything to be cleaner, more thought out, and more of one piece. I always wanted to try a more anime style skirt. I first started this back in August 2011, but soon realized that trying to pattern it, work out kinks, work a full time job, and try to make two at once was way too much for me. I ran into things I didn’t like about it so I put aside for several months. I finally picked it back up in Jan. to finish it.
The fabrics used are a heavy weight spandex for the body suit, light weight spandex for hip rolls, panties, sleeve toppers and sleeves, casa satin for the skirt, ankle straps, bows and collar. I also used bating for making all my stuff poofy instead of fiberfill like I have in the past. I found it gives a more uniform puff over my older methods. The skirt consists of 4.5 yards that was knives pleated and sewn directly to the body suit. Getting the right angles and proportions on the lower “V” is by far the hardest part of any fuku. Bows are all interfaced to retain shape and are pinned on. Heart broach is casted. Tiara was purchased online. Wig is the same from my previous Venus costume, from Epic Cosplay. Shoes were black and painted to match. Bottoms of gloves were purchased and toppers were made of lycra and sewn on top.
