I loved Bisuke's personality and her outfit looked like it would be fun to try and make. I loved the dress and its poofyness. Overall I'm pleased with the way it came out. The dress actually ended up being two parts which I was a little unhappy about. I also wish I had made the skirt part a little poofier.
The top pink part was made out of a slightly stretchy material. I forget what kind of material it was, but I think it was a heavy cotton. A zipper was sewn in on the side. The skirt part was made out of a red material of mixed, unknown fibers with a few layers of large scrap pieces under it in an attempt to give it a little volume. The bottom white part was made out of a white stretch cotton (the leftovers from my Hinamori costume). The skirt was held together with two buttons. The top red part was made with the same red material as the skirt with a white ruffle trim. The green ribbon/string was green bias tape.
I had originally bought a wig for Bisuke, but it was such bad quality that I couldn't style it without ripping all the hair out. I ended up using my real hair instead.
