Dani's Rena Ryuugu Cosplay

My friends and I are putting together a Higurashi cosplay group, and I volunteered to help make some costumes! ^^
I’m so glad that I’m about the same size as Dani, so I got to try on the costume to see how it was fitting. (that’s me in all the pictures, yes) xD It was a little big on me, which is okay because she’s more, er, endowed in the chest area. After I gave it to her, I didn’t have the chance to see her try it on, but she claims it fits perfectly? I still need to fit it on her though, because I used a zipper on this one.
I also made her the poofy-saggy Rena hat, which I’ve never made a hat before in my life. I didn’t have a pattern for it, I pretty much just faked it. xD
And for the dress I just altered a pattern I had to make it fuller. I also altered a sleeve pattern to make the sleeves that poofy. The bows were fun to make too. c:
Edit: Now with pics from the Anime Banzai! Dani looks awesome as Rena! I’m so glad she enjoyed the costume! :DD

    Duuuude. Easily the best Rena dress I’ve ever seen. <3 It looks just like it did in 2d! I didn’t even know cosplays could /do/ that.
