Onechanbara by straywind Onechanbara by straywind
If you actually get what my costume is, congrats! I don't know how many people actually played Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers. It's such a silly game. I played it a couple of times and found it entertaining. I made this costume back in early 2011 for an Onechanbara group at Anime North that didn't really happen. It was too cold at the con for Ammie to wear her Aya costume. I decided to wear Saki anyway. I had picked to make Saki's outfit from a Wii version of the game so it was super obscure. A few people thought I was Cosplaying from Sucker Punch. XD

I only have 2 photos of the costume and I'm not really sure when I'll wear this again if ever so I thought I should post a photo here just to show that I actually made the costume. I fixed it up a little bit post-con as my bow sat a little funny. I absolutely love my pleated skirt! The fabric was really pretty and the pleats looked really nice (my mother helped me set them back then because pleating is a pain in the butt). I didn't make a harness Saki has for her sword. My sword was given to me by my friend Bonnie who had made it years ago for another costume. It was a really cool prop!

Please ignore that the wig gives me mega forehead. It was an Arda Leia and it was super heavy on my head. I had maybe 20 bobby pins trying to keep it in place but it still slipped back (and gave me a headache). I bought sew-in wig clips since then in case I wear this wig again. I spent a lot of time on this costume so despite it being obscure, I hope I can wear it again. I know Ammie and I would still like to do a shoot of the sisters together.

I really appreciate Mike taking this hallway photo of my costume so I have something to share.

Good costume, but horrible photo on my part! lol!
The composition, the editing, the lighting, the export settings, all wrong Mike!

I wouldn't say horrible! For a quick shot I like it. I only have 2 photos of the costume so I appreciate it so much. Maybe I'll wear it again one day I can do a shoot with you get better photos of it. :3

Awesome job with the cosplay! I have heard of the game and always wanted to play it. I just never got around to it. I'll have to try to look into it!

Thanks! It's kind of ridiculous. It’s a real hack-and-slash game, but there is something satisfying about hacking zombies to pieces every now and again. XD If you can find one of the Onechanbara games for cheap it would be fun to play.

You look really cute! The costume sure does look a lot like Babydoll's, I'm not surprised people mistook you as her. xD

Thanks! The costume does have a Sucker Punch vibe that's for sure. I just don't think anyone at AN actually recognized the costume for what it was. XD

That's understandable. But you did a really good job on it so I guess that's what matters most. :3
