Me as Yuuko Ichihara
Source: XXXHolic
Photographed by: *alucardleashed at Katsucon 2012

I completely handpainted all the swirly clouds just like the artwork this was based off of. A lot of people were amazed I did that, and some thought I had bought fabric that looked like it. I think the most time consuming part of painting was the multiple layers I had to do it in to get that shaded gradient effect with the pale purple and yellow. After the shading was done, I used lots of sharpies to outline all the fine swirls to bring out the wispiness of the clouds.

Walking in the super tall platform heels I modded was also a challenge. They were originally platform stilettos. I couldn't find platform wedges in the exact shape I wanted (or that were tall enough to be accurate) so I filled in the gap between the heel and the toe with expandable foam and made my own wedge :D.

Feel free to ask questions, leave a comment, or even connect with me on my Facebook Cosplay Page. I'm on there A LOT [link]

Hello! Thank you so much for the kind comments T__T

The platform wedges started out as regular platform stripper heels since those are a lot easier to find. I used expanding foam to fill in the middle gap to turn them into wedges. Then I covered the newly formed platform wedge with paper mache to strengthen it. Here's progress pics: [link]
