Houmei at Katsucon 2012 by pixiekitty Houmei at Katsucon 2012 by pixiekitty
Photo taken at Katsucon 2012 by LJinto.

Costume made by me, Wig styled by :iconfirelilycosplay:

I had a lot of fun painting all of this, but it also got very frustrating when I would mess up just because there was SO MUCH OF IT to paint!! AHHH!! The peacock is a mixure of Heat N' Bonded pieces of fabric and hand painting.

See more photos of it at pixiekitty.net!

Oh my, what a GORGEOUS work! I'm a fan of textile painting, and this is definitely a perfect example of it! The bird in the train is so magnificent!

May I ask what kind/brand of paint you used for the gradient, or did you gradient dye the base garment?

It's called Design Master Floral spray. Comes in a spray can, and in many colors! I get mine at Michaels and A.C. Moore.

Very lovely~! Did you use a cotton for this? The paint does not look to heavy at all, and the effect reads very well on camera <3 Very Stunning!

Thanks! Actually, I used casa satin from Joann Fabrics! It's a synthetic fabric that won't take dye, so I used various colors of floral spray to achieve the color effects!

The hand painting on this costume blows my mind! Haha, I actually love to paint, so looking at this costume inspires me to eventually get off my butt and eventually do a costume that showcases some hand painting.
