I found this when I was going through some old folders. Soi Fon, flying through the air :)

-construction notes-
The pigtails are the nylon core of a rope with pre-made bias tape woven around them. At the ends there is embroidery floss in a loop holding up gold bangles.
The sleeves were cannibalized from an old unitard.
I made up some sort of pattern out of thin air for the halter top out of muslin before making it for real out of the black stretch cotton, but really it's a miracle it turned out as well as it did! I purposely made it a little more modest than Soi Fon's real outfit.
For the hakama I followed online instructions for a costume hakama provided by someone awesome on deviantart. It's been so long I don't remember exactly who. It may have been ~Midnight-Zephyr.
Soi Fon doesn't wear the normal shinigami sandals, she wears tai chi shoes. layered white socks with black socks cut to a stirrup shape and bought tai chi shoes.

I did wushu with a student run club for a year or so, but I also have over 10 years of ballet under my belt which helps more than you might think :)

Wha, how did you?
Geez, you're quite the athletic when it comes to cosplay. Most people would just sit down and look at the sky or something, but you're over here leaping into the air. Fantastic :D

well I cosplayed Soi Fon because she's a total badass, and she's a very athletic fighter! So I tried to bring some of that into the shoot :) I'm glad you like it!
