Kasumi Jungle ninja by HollyGloha Kasumi Jungle ninja by HollyGloha
Model/Costumer: Me!
Photographer: Angelwing ([link])

I fell in love with martial arts at a much younger year, but ended up doing dance/ballet. I FINALLY got into it, and got my black belt! Wasn’t long until I was cosplaying martial arts video game characters. I love Kasumi because she’s the “good girl” but with a little fanservice, just because. ;)

Kasumi Costume: From the top down....The wig isn't 100% accurate for her haircolor, but I wanted something that looked natural for me. With my warm undertones, an orange based red would look ugly, ugly, ugly, hence the blue based red I have. The costume is made from white bridal satin, doubled up so as not to be see-through. I used Simplicity pattern 3775 for the chest and stomach area. I free drafted the front and back panels. The cherry blossoms and back sigil were hand painted on. (I have to give a very special thank you to AuraRinoa and instantkarmie for their tips, and *hugs* to AuraRinoa for sending me a copy of the sigil to make a stencil!) The arm guards and shin guards were free drafted, and made with non-stretch vinyl.

<3 Kasumi. But I think this pose seems off for her. I think the pose when she does Oboro (the throw at 4:10) would have been a great choice because Kasumi never balls her fist. But I love this none-the-less c:

True that! I notices her fighting technique involves more sword/blade hands than fists. I'll look up that throw and try it out in a future photoshoot. :)

Cool.
Also, two questions. One, did you happen to wear this at last year's San Japan? And two, are you hitting DragonCon this year?
