I am sad I never got proper photos of this costume. I only have these few when I went on stage at Naka-Kon. I struggled with this a bit because I had no idea what I was doing. At the time the costume was difficult for me. Trying to draft my own patterns without a dress form at all or knowing how to do so. So it was a lot of guessing, then sewing, then trying on, and re-doing.
I thought about going back and re-doing this outfit because I love that character so much. I try harder now to move on and make new things. I did a few different renditions of Shimei. My favorite being her Dragon Figurine Design.
I know the costume looks simple but It was a huge learning experience for me. Being self taught with limited resources at the time was a challenge.
