Character: Anzu Futaba
Series: THE iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls
Debut: Anime Expo 2017
Difficulty:
Inspiration:

I adore Anzu from Cinderella Girls, and Ju-G invited me to do these with her! Even though I had a lot of costumes on my plate already, these look simple so of course I said yes!


Construction Notes:

Ju-G’s friend designed the shirts and we got them printed through CustomInk.com. From there we cut and modded the shirts. The skirts are made from poly poplin and 2 tiers of 2x waist circle skirts, gathered at the waist with 1 inch horsehair braid sewn to the bottom. The stars are cast out from resin and colored with pigment mixed in. The dots were flatback pearls I painted to match the stars. I made the bracelets from beads, elastic cord, pom poms, and wood letters painted and doused with glitter. We made the hair accessories by filling clear ornaments with similar pieces as the skirt and gluing them closed. I lucked out finding the socks from an Amazon seller and already had the shoes.

I also made my rabbit! I patterned it out myself, embroidered the face using my embroidery machine, appliqued the ears with my sewing machine, and sewed a zipper into his pocket so it’s also a bag! The wig is a reused Epic Cosplay wig, and I later used another reused unknown Kaneakalon wig (the lighter blonde).
