I dressed up as Sheryl Nome at the Grand International Cosplay Ball in London for my stage performance, which was to sing "Diamond Crevasse" live.
I decided on Sheryl for the Ball after going through a few other options because ultimately my love for the Macross series, as well as Yoko Kanno's music for Frontier, won over.
The costume is from the 2nd Opening song, "Lion" - I opted for it because the color scheme matched and because it fit perfectly underneath the overdress. I made the bodice, which is lined, reinforced and boned, as well as the skirt and accessories. Sheryl's skirt is a simple circle skirt from what I can tell but I made it into a 3 tier skirt for the stage. I really like it this way.
The flower on her collar is supposed to be red, but because I wanted to match it to another outfit I wore on the same night, I kept it purple.
The rose wrist cuff were also hand made instead of using gloves because I had to hold a microphone and was afraid of it slipping on gloves.
Lastly, I also made Sheryl's signature earring using various beads, cubic zirconium and jewelry findings which took a lot of running around to find. I am still improving on the elements of it.
You can see a video of the Ball including parts from my performance here:
