Kirschwasser Photo by Eurobeat King! ^^

I am so happy with how this came out. Compare it to my Xiao I wore last year (1st photo in my gallery). It makes my old one look like >_<. I am happy to say that this is 100% accurate (except for the ribbons hanging from my hair accessories. I put them to just to add a unique touch.)

So yes, here is what I updated:

-Leg Warmers: I added on the plum blossom & butterfly pattern (green part), though you really can't tell in this picture. I also added the gold disc to the orange part on top.

-Obi is thicker & fits like an obi should (without bunching up). I also made the bow puffier & it holds up all day without wilting.

-Red & Gold top is shorter & more form fitting (and with the correct designs). I also made the tassles longer & the ride shade of green. I added the gold "shell" shape on top of the tassels too.

-The fans had bigger pandas, there are blue gems in the ribbons, I painted on the blue floral design, & added the gold trim.

So yes, I am happy with how much better this costume is. It looks so colourful. I can even see the blush on my face in this photo. *laughs* I had fun wearing this. (It attracts A LOT of attention.)

  • Kirschwasser Oooo, more comments. I hadn't even realized there were more in here. :D PsylockeKagura - Yeah! Fans are fun, but I broke them only an hour after I first got into the costume. ^^; They can kind of be clumbsy. The pandas make me laugh. ^^ tiffa - Thank you for the nice comment. Kit Foxfire - I love your Xiao too! *laughs merrily* Thanks for the comment! I am happy with the result of this updated version of Xiao. But now, it goes into retirement. *Awww* keiblercookies - Really? Thanks! *hugs* I am very pleased you believe I do Xiao Qiao justice. *Dances* ska beam - Ookini! ^_^ Yes, pandas are always fun, especially on fans! *Grins* Quita - I am happy that you like to see people make DW costumes. They can be time consuming & a tad bit challenging to make, but in the end, it is worth it to have a rather unique costume. ^^ Zhalfirin - Heeey, I missed you at AX! *Hugs* You need to come next year, ya hear me? ^_~ Thanks for the great comment in my gallery. XD Rubeus - Awwww, really? Well, I like you too, my friend. *Hugs* Yep, I plan to "kill" myself by making harder costumes. (Hint: I'll be making something from Trinity Blood. Now that is complex!) ^^; strawberry neko - I love your Xiao too! You & Kit also have made really awesome Xiao cosplay! *Power to Xiao Qiao!* ^_~ Yes~, I hope you can come to AX next year too! The more Qiaos there are means more colourful, attention-getting fans! ^_~ Tachibana_Miyu - Thanks~! Yes, Xiao is too cute to resist. It's fun being such a clumbsy, cute character for a day. ^^ 18 years ago
