Rei Hasekura from Maria-sama ga Miteru

Cute, angsty anime about catholic schoolgirls aren’t really my scene but I really like Marimite.

Moo, PositiveSpace, Katnap and I sweatshopped these costumes, occasionally dragging in Ziggy to help. Basically that means we got together every chance we had for 2 weeks, sometimes staying up till 5am in the morning, and assembly line made these costumes. Ugh. If I never see another pleat again, I’ll be a happy happy kitty.

We did our costumes as 2 pieces which we’ve learned since then is wrong. Thank you season 2. Wish we’d known beforehand cause it would have saved us a lot of work. Oh well…
