the way of the swordby ciferacosplay

I haven't been as excited to cosplay a character as I am about Peko for a very, very long time. She's my favorite character in the entire DR series and has quickly become one of my favorite characters of all time; the extent of my fan love for her is kind of ridiculous! I went to equally ridiculous lengths for this costume- I spent way more hours on it than should really be justified for a seemingly simple seifuku, but I wanted to nail all the colors and details properly, along with her wig; it's a much more difficult wig than it looks, because you can't just buy a pigtailed wig and call it a day. I obsessively dyed fabrics, wefted, made my own bias tape, heavily modified shoes, had custom fabric printed, and made and remade things until I was satisfied. There's 6 meters of interfacing in this costume somehow!

I am extremely happy with how everything on this cosplay turned out. I think I can say with confidence that I think I have managed to capture this character's spirit and portray her as well as I could! It was a pleasant surprise for me to find that she was a suitable character face-wise for me, as well; I wasn't too sure when I first started working on her. You can definitely expect a few more Peko costumes from me- I have several planned!

As for this photoshoot, I can't even express properly how much I adore it. Working with Angels Instead was probably the best decision we could have made- she really did her research before the shoot, and she nailed the location; she took us to a beautiful traditional Japanese-style garden. There couldn't have been a more appropriate setting! I hope you like it as much as I do!
