Costumes made/modeled by Yaya between 1999 - now.

Kyo - Dir En Grey

Why I chose to make this costume:

I thought this had a nice 80’s rockin’ style and finally satisfied my craving of doing another J-music costume.

How I made this costume:

I created the shirt through altering a pattern tremendously and made the leather flaps by drafting my own pattern. I spent long hours embellishing this costume according to Kyo's photos and I also styled the wig. Aside from making everything, I also did my own make-up at AX and Dragoncon. It was a very fun costume to construct.

Thoughts on this costume:

Love the 80's look!
