Portrait of a Priestess by sumikins Portrait of a Priestess by sumikins
Wow. I have to admit, this is from a shoot I NEVER expected to see photos from. This was taken back during Fanime of 2010 -- ALMOST A YEAR AGO! But I have to say, I'm absolutely stunned by this lovely picture, taken by Leonard after the WCS Preliminaries.

I'll be posting more recent photos of newer costumes once I get my hands on all of them, but I just had to post this first.

Edit: Holy Cow you guys, 50 favorites in less than 24 hours?! O.O I'm shocked!

Wow, I've only seen 1 other try this particular costume and yours is just wonderful. :heart: How did you do the scales?

They are large sequins, called 'Spangles" -- I had to special order the metalic yellow ones, and then I alternated rows of metalic yellow, and gold. They are glued to the head-pieces, and sewn by hand to the arm and leg pieces.

The other one I saw just used yellow fabric. It was good but the extra money, time and effort you put in makes a huge difference

Well, thank you ^_^ This costume is very dear to me -- at the time I made this, very few other people had tried it, and not in many years. It also got me a trip to Japan! I'm glad you like it <3 all that glueing and sewing took a very.. very long time @____@

Is this version an artbook image or original design? It's lovely!

It's from a promotional art from the laserdisk releases back in the late 90's.

Awesome. Really beautiful costumes, and I'm glad to see people are still doing Fushigi Yuugi! xD
