With guest Ohmitsooki as Kaname Madoka!

Additional Costume Details

  • Victoria Bane greatly improved our yukata-making methods from when we did our Senshi yukatas:
    • She purchased several books for research
    • She translated the instructions from Japanese and used them to cross-reference each other when the instructions were unclear
    • 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
  • Face masks made using leftover yukata fabric
