Kotori Chinese Awaken Making

Last cosplay photoshoot back in February, Kotori from Love Live! Chinese dress awaken ver.

Reference photo. Love the costume so much~ so pretty! *w*

Base. I searched for so long for the floral fabric going stores to stores! Wanted to get something as similar as possible to the original design & im happy with this fabric that i found 

Wanted to find the blue fabric will more detailed patterns but couldnt find it :( ..so plain one it is~

Zipper on the back side.

Bought a big pack of gold trimming thinking that i can use it for a long time. Can't believe that i finished it all on this very costume! 


Really happy how it turned out :3 ♥ 

Ribbon making. Love Live costume always have tons of ribbons! 

Someone's being a naughty girl~

Hand sewed fake chinese buttons with gold trimmings. For me, this is the most tiring part of all.

Lace trimming is love 

Flower made with fabric glued together. *vanilla yawning at the back* :3

Hair accessory done!  

& 2 layers of lace fabric for the skirt. 

This is currently my the most satisfied set of costume I've ever made! Probably because this time i made it with measurements and carefully sewed everything together which is not what i usually will do xD

Full view ♥ ♥ ...Boots are made with gluing on gold trimmings :)
