Ri Kohran : Sakura Wars

Inspiration


Newly introduced to the art of cosplay and this being only the second costume I have ever made, Ri Kohran was always one of my first choices when I was deciding what to make for my first ‘cosplay-con’. I had owned her action figure for quite some time and it became my perfect reference.

Creation


Wig – borrowed from H-chan. Braided and attached painted napkin rings for her ‘hair ties’. Wig to be redone.

Dress – Make from high-quality red chinese silk brocade, dark green silk habotai lining, yellow satin bias strips and specially-ordered matching yellow frog clasps. An altered pattern served as the basis for the entire dress.

Shoes & Props – store bought shoes, green notebook and green pen.
