Worn to: MegaCon & JACON 2004
Hours to Make: 100-150 hours
Awards: Costume Hall Award at JACON
Notes: This Myoubi costume was reproduced from the manga (Japanese comic book) ‘Alichino’. In the manga it was only pictured as black and white. The reason I chose to do the costume in the burgandy/wine colors that you see is because it is the color of her main dress which is best known for. I made this costume when I was about 17-18 years old and all patterns and garment construction was done by myself.
