    • She ultimately put together proprietary guides for the team to follow, including ways to customize the fit as well as sew them together more traditionally
  • Bebe mask painted by The Geeky Seamstress
  • Madoka’s yukata was made as a team effort; everyone else made their own.
  • Madoka, Kyoko, and Sayaka’s masks by AdventTraitor
  • Madoka, Kyoko, and Sayaka’s kinchaku pouches made as a team effort between AdventTraitor and Koholint
