In Chi-Chi's character design most of her hair pieces are quite "square" and I decided I wanted to literally recreate this effect. Normally I'm not the type for video-tutorials (I prefer pictures), but when a friend showed me his Youtube channel I was hooked! I started with making this costume for fun, but I was lured into signing up for a cosplay competition with it, so I also had a though deadline where I couldn't remake every part that I wanted from it!

I had quite a hard time finding the right shade of dark blue, but I'm pretty content with how this color turned out! D I always like to make overviews/stories like this as it's also a good diary and memory for myself about such a huge project. View spoiler Hide spoiler You can see some leftovers on the cardboard for my earlier painted Smileys masks www. Back to my story: I started off with making a pattern from a foam head that is almost the same size as my own head. If I would re-do this part, I would have made the seamline less obvious, but I'm still quite happy with how this turned out!How long the drying process takes depends on the weather, but on a general (quite cold) day in the Netherlands this can take a full day. But on the other hand, my boyfriend was laughing like crazy too because of how in-character Roshi was, so we had lots of fun! Chi-Chi's hairstyle is a variation of a hime-cut, which I already cut multiple times, but I wanted to make this one a bit more special. View spoiler Hide spoiler Sorry for the blurry picture of the shoulderplates, but with work-in-progress if my pictures turn out bad, I can never re-make them because I'm already at the next step! I also met up with a Roshi at the same convention and he was so completely in-character I couldn't stop laughing.

Luckily everything went quite well, but I think it was also one of the reasons why I screwed up during the act.I like with Lilith how she comes over as very sexy, but is still quite clothed (she only has bare shoulders). View spoiler Hide spoiler I just re-measure myself every once in a while to see if I didn't get a lot fatter or thinner and see if the mannequin is still good. I’ve considered writing up a glove tutorial eventually since I wanted to toss one together for Sora’s (since a tutorial for that is non-existent) XD I’ve come across a few here and there. Inbetween my pre-judging in the morning and the afternoon where I had to be on stage I had a photoshoot with RE:PLICA / MikoBura, who also has an account here: bura She is also a cosplayer and a huge Dragon Ball fan. Lots of people wanted to make pictures of us when we were talking and he even had a "master Roshi approves of this" sign with him.

Because of the (quite unexpected, to be honest) positive reactions I got on my previous cosplay project blog blog/20041 , I decided to also make a blog about my Chi-Chi costume project!On the other hand a few things on stage went bad, so I think I'm not that sad about it, as I would prefer not to see it back as I don't feel very comfortable about it. In general I don't make much pictures of that process, as it's incredibly boring to do and to watch people do! I'm completely not used to cosplaying cute and shy characters, but what helped was that I was also not 100% comfortable in such a bare costume, even though I was wearing a bodysuit. When the costume was close to finishing I uploaded this teaser to show what I had so far and also to show how the design from the cape and top works View spoiler Hide spoiler the fabric at the top of my shoulders is not visible when wearing the wig and this was also before ironing everything, so pardon the small mess :P. To be honest, I couldn't really point out in the design what these were, so I ended up just making small covers to have the effect.

I always think it's funny how parts look burned so quickly, but nothing of that will be visible after undercoating and painting! If someone that studied fashion/clothes design or a professional clothes/costume maker sees this, he/she would probably smack me on the back of my head. For some reason I had the bright idea that I could use small pieces of foam to cover the gaps I had inbetween the detailing and the helmet itself.I always start out with a paper prototype and if that prototype works out well, I make patterns from them.
