Description

It's no secret that I love Ayumi Hamasaki, especially her costumes from her music videos and concert performances. Some people love Naturo and make Naruto costumes, other people love Bleach and make Bleach costumes, etc. I love Ayu, so I make Ayumi costumes. ^_^

Anyway, I'd never been a big fan of this music video until a couple of years ago when a friend of mine started playing it all the time ... and it just sort of grew on me. Around that time I told myself that if I ever found the right material for it I would make this costume. After a little over a year of searching periodically on ebay for the right looking material I finally found something that I thought could work.

The dress itself is a Vogue pattern for a 1950's style dress. I altered the neckline and lengthened the skirt a bit.

Credit goes to my mother for finishing the costume for me, as I was too overwhelmed with work and trying to finish Luna in time for Ohayocon '08, but I desperately wanted to wear my poofy polka dot dress at the con. I had the costume about 70% complete before my mom volunteered to take it over, but without her I never would have managed to get it done in time. As it turned out, I never finished Luna in time (I caught the flu and was dead for most of con), but at least I had my poofy dress instead. ^_^
