Kabuki Revolution Extreme

Inspired by kabuki and Dance Dance Revolution



I don't even want to go into how much work is in these costumes. They say never to use satin in a costume, but we used and abused it. We used and abused (mostly abused, with heat torture) lame, which was absurd but turned out beautiful. There's glitter-covered sheer in this, cotton, wool, chamois, crepe-back satin, baroque satin, a horrid swimsuit material, three types of satin rope, 12-gauge wire, 100 LED lights, fiber-optics, and more. My kimono weighs almost 40 pounds. The make-up and costumes together take three hours to get on.

We plan to enter this in the Costume-Con historical masquerade.

WARPAINTandUnicorns I love it! It puts a huge grin on my face.

epierce001 What a great idea! I assume they asked for something that mixes elements of traditional Japan with elements of present-day Japan? DDR Kabuki is absolutely BRILLIANT. And the costumes look like they took 10 years to make, a day to put on and weigh about 100 pounds. I hope you win every award in existence, because you deserve them.
