Let me tell you a little more about the inspiration for this costume. First, I have loved Traci’s Cyber Geisha look:
Then, there is Maral’s Emerald Gothic Lolita:
Black and white matched with one bright colour is combination I love. I especially liked the corset she used. Also, I was surprised how much I loved the multicoloured dreads. Dawn a.k.a. Kaijugal has a similar set:
Pumpkin Lolita by Dawn McKechnie "Kaijugal"
So I mixed what I liked about these styles and came up with this:
It consists of a short black Furisode, worn over a white Juban. A turquoise liquid lamé corset takes the place of the obi. I will wear this outfit paired with blue tights, black and white striped half gloves and knee high socks, black patent leather platform Mary Janes, a black headband with bow, flower and feathers (which I got at Forever 21), and my custom made Dread Pony Falls in Black, Blond, Blue and Turquoise. As for makeup, I am aiming for a Geisha look, including full white face and neck prongs, but I will replace the usual reds and pinks by blues and turquoise. I will also paint my nails blue.
I do hope I can finish in time! (And that it is warm enough for me to wear it – it can snow on Halloween in Québec).
