Royal Ruffles by AngelaClaytonCosplay Royal Ruffles by AngelaClaytonCosplay
Super awkward pose, yeah. Hopefully I will have less awkward pictures soon. This costume was comically hard to pose in since I lacked so much mobility, there was so much material and boning, blah ;;

This was debut day fort this costume and it kind of fell apart and ended up getting safety pinned together. My not-so-clever-self neglected to realize how heavy the bustle would be and thus I didn't have a method of securing it to the corset.

Anyway, this beast took 22 yards of taffeta, over 240 yards of hemming, and three months to make. This costume was a huge learned process and involved the making my very first corset, among other things. Everything was made and styled by me, except for the teapot which was created by my father and decorated by me.

If you want more details I have over ten thousand words and one hundred-twenty pictures outlining how every bit was made. The index for this can be found here: [link]

This is amazing! I'm a little creeped by the fact that it's very lolita and you have a VERY childlike face!

Oh my goodness! I saw you in your Royal Milk Tea cosplay at Katsucon,
but I was really shy to talk to you. :blushes:
I really admired your costume! It was absolutely gorgeous! ♡
I was overly happy of how many Sakizo cosplays I saw at Katsucon.
Yours was one of my favorite designs by Sakizo, but I kept forgetting the name of the illustration. Hehe! ♡
You look incredibly beautiful in this design! And the ruffle work is outstanding!
When I get better at sewing, I'll definitely make a Sakizo cosplay. :aww:

You should have said hello! But that is very sweet, i'm glad you like it. I was happy at the amount too, but it seemed like people only wore them on Friday so I didn't get pictures with many of them OTL

Thank you very much!

i think it's very interesting that these designs were inspired by japan, which adopted the look through westernization. now the west is trying to look western by emulating the east.

still, what a lovely costume!
