Sumomo was my finals costume for Clara Cow’s Cosplay Cup 2016 with PopcornKuma as Chii!
We wanted to represent another classic anime series for the finals, after qualifying with Cardcaptor Sakura. We brainstormed a few options before settling on Chobits and building a performance around “wakey exercises”! For me, the performance was roughly two minutes of bouncing around looking totally ridiculous.. nothing new there!
Her design is simple to look at and there aren’t many elements to it, but patterning it was tricky. Converting doll proportions to fit me was challenging, and of course it needed crazy volume too! I used over 15 metres of baby pink satin in this costume!
