Reika Mishima Costume

For Halloween 2012. Also, a personal goal of mine to eventually have a Reika costume lying around. Reika is from RahXephon, my favorite animated show and also produced by my favorite animation studio, BONES. I really wanted to make this costume cheaply, so I used bed sheets for the fabric. Then, I dyed it. Seeing as this was my first time dying fabric, the coloring is, um . . . a little inconsistent. It amused me greatly when the dye even coated my white invisible zipper in yellow. I used Burdastyle’s Fatina pattern.

While walking my niece down the street (who was dressed as Carrie; my sister (her mother) and I were allowed to douse her in Hawaiian Punch to which we gleaned perhaps too much pleasure), the wind blew my hair and scarf up into the air and I felt very majestic then. Too bad no one was there to paint that image.

What’s wonderful about this costume is that I can wear the dress for everyday. I’ve paired it with a cardigan, a pair of tights, and it still looks nice.
