(Repost - I realized my last entry included text, which is breaking the LB rules! Oops. I thought I'd be fair and change the photo.)
This is my Halloween costume this year. I am dressed as Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, a Japanese fashion blogger/model/recently released her own album.
This outfit is the outfit she wears in her music video for her song PONPONPON:
Kyary has a very unique sense of fashion, which has gotten her very well known in Japan (and now in many other parts of the world, especially after the release of her album). I find her style to be very inspiring, which is why I wanted to be Kyary this Halloween!
I put a whole lot of effort into this costume! The vest and the pants were sewn completely by hand. The pink and red stripes on the vest even had to be sewn together, since I could not find red/pink striped fabric anywhere (eeek)! For the eyes that are on the gloves and the pants, I drew them in Photoshop and then used iron-on transfer paper. I haven't sewn anything for six years, so I was out of practice, but everything came together so nicely!
I am extremely happy with my costume :). No one where I live knows who I was dressed as, but I still one third place in a costume contest!
I am a big fan of Kyary, so I am going to send some photos of my costume in a fan letter to her. I think it would be really exciting if my costume got a lot of hype and got seen a lot on the internet, maybe even Kyary would see it! I am moving to Japan in January so it would be really exciting if she saw my costume and I maybe got a chance to meet her~. Fat chance, but a girl can dream, no?
Anyways, I hope you like my costume as much as I do!
ハッピーハロウィン ! Happy Halloween!
