Kasumi – Dead or Alive

About this costume:

I hardly ever played Dead or Alive but I think you don’t have to know the game to know the girls of it. ^_~ Kasumi is a beauty. I wanted to make one of her outfits for a very long time, even if I knew it wouldn’t look very authentic on me when it comes to the body shape. ^^” In reality not many girls are so lucky to have such a slim and also feminine body. But I’m still happy that I made the costume. For the inside of the arm and the leg bracers I used foam rubber. Painting the cherry petals on the skirt part was the most fun. The katana is a very cheap one from a carnival shop which I modified to look the same as hers.
