Wang Liu Mei
Mobile Suit Gundam 00
Descriptionmade as part of the Cosplay Challenge series of workshops. :)
WHEE!!! i preped the whole thing!! yay! it took about two months of solid work to get the outfit, wig and performance done.
dress is a one-piece garment, with a zip at the top back and another zip at the hip. i used satin crepe to get that deep almost shimery look. bias tape, cheongsam buttons and flower pattern were painted on using dylon gold paint, then soaked in red-ish water to mute the gold a bit.
had a lot of support though. lots of thanks to the following pple:
