Black Chinese Dress

Dead or Alive Series 4

hours spent:

First Worn to:
Video Games Live 2008 ((Won 2nd place in Costume Contest))
Ikasucon 2008

Why I did this cosplay:
Lei Fang is my favorite character. I always wanted to do one of her chinese dresses. I liked the design of the bird from Dead or Alive 4 and I had the right materials at the time to make it. I love this costume a lot.

The dress a chinese fitted qi pao. I had gold trim all around the dress and added the two frogs at the top.

I hate painting but this dress was absolutely worth it. I love the outcome and it looks great.

Anything else?
I didn't make the phoenix as accurate as I wanted. It was very hard to fit all the detailing in without over doing it. But it got great reviews! Many thanks for the pictures from Aaron!
