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?

pixiekitty Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012
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.
