Lin Xue Ya (SetsuA)
DescriptionThis costume has SO MUCH detail, but I love it all. Construction time was approximately 220 hours.
I designed the digital file for the sleeve and "skirt" fabric based on the show and had them custom printed by Spoonflower.com.
Wig is a Delilah from Arda Wigs, with an added long clip for extra volume. The wig and clip take 4-6 hours to detangle and restyle each time the costume is worn.
The "wings" and main jacket fabric is the same, with an added 14 hours of serged detail added for the jacket to make extra thick line detail to match reference.
