A B O U T the costume



time~ 3 weeks and a half


materials~ silk,velvet,cotton,shiny organza,various fabric,laces,pearls,swarosky jewels


Event~ Rimini Comics




P E R S O N A L THOUGHTS

Making this Costume was so hard! Especially because I had to do everything in a restricted amount of time...I've passed an horrible period,full of stress,cries,and a lot of other bad feelings...as if it wasn't enough,my best friend had to return home the very same day I was wearing my HIZAKI outfit,and it was a great shame because we had planned to go to sea together after the convention...I felt so sad.
But luckily now it's all fixed! I hope we can meet again very soon ❤ I was helped during the whole convention time by three lovely coscaddies who offered to help me carring the guitar around the convention,and they even lent me an umbrella when it started to rain! Actually,I was quite happy the weather decided to spare me and my skin <(-_-)> )))
I asked the oracolum (yes,just like ancient Romans,I'm very superstitious) a lot of times if it was ok to wear the dress that day,because it was raining hard in the morning and everyone moved to the theatre. I was worried I couldn't move in such a restricted place! But the oracolum was very clear: "you will have more luck than you expect!"
I was very worried I wasn't cut for HIZAKI at all too,since he's clearly asian and I'm italian/french,there was no way for me to look like him! However,I wanted to cosplay him since I was eleven,and everyone kept telling me it was a good choice (devils!),so I practiced with make up and his facial expressions,observed his moves in videos and tried to understand the source of his passion for beauty.
He somewhat...makes me think of the greek concept of k a l a k o g a t h i a καλακογαθια. Greeks believed that external beauty was an expression of inner beauty. To me It means...beauty has no meaning,if you're not beautiful inside!

Un altro grande lavoro, ottima scelta di pizzi e tessuti soprattutto; stai molto bene e hai un'eleganza innata! A volte i cosplay richiedono tanto, anche dispiaceri come dici nella tua descrizione, ma è bello sapere che a volte si viene ripagati! ^^
