What About & Making Of
Beautiful Jo is a manga-style heroine born after a competition launched by Kappa Magazine. Unlike the normal process of creating a cosplay, this time I had carte blanche on the design of the dress, which I shamelessly wanted in vintage style, as a kind of homage to the '80s, and the illustrations of the various authors adapted accordingly.
Come to think of it, maybe now I would choose a fabric with a metallic shiny to give it a ‘space look’, but all things considered it is not that bad even like this.
For the puffy hems I employed the usual technique of filling them with foam for pillows and then sew them on the skirt and the gloves. Glasses courtesy of Lou.
