DescriptionIroha has been one of my dream cosplays for a long time and I wanted to do a really good job it.
The most challenging part was probably the flowers on the headphones. I loved Ryuuraigeki's Kanzashii flowers that she made for her Iroha (beautiful cosplay btw, go check it out) so i tried something similar. For mine, I used wire, rhinestones, and cotton (which I starched the snot out of) instead of silk because I'm on a budget XD. All of the bias tape and lettering was made from cotton and made by hand.
The shirt, skirt, and leggings were made from bottom weight solids and all of the detailing on the leggings and sleeves I hand beaded (I did a lot of it in class XD).
ryuuraigeki it looks really good!! you did an awesome job on the kanzashi! (I think they turned out better than mine actually, LOL.) there are more colors available in the cotton section anyway, I had crap selection thanks to trying to make them out of silk (internet's too expensive when you only need tiny bits of material). all that beading must have taken forever *___*
