Cosplay is based on Junko Mizunoís Kaori the Nurse from Pure Trance manga. This costume was made in collaboration with my very talented fashion designer, and dear friend, Justin Barington-Foote. The dress and hat are made with a poly-blend satin fabric, and the kitty logo on the hat is made from a foam sheet cut into the kitty shape with X and painted with acrylics. Bootcovers were made to fit over flat shoes and accessorized with covered buttons in the same cotton fabric as the covers. The bunny chainsaw was the most fun Iíve ever had making a prop! It is made from cotton-candy pink fun fur with a hand painted foamcore board cut into the shape of a chainsaw blade. Kaoriís surgical tools garter belt is made from extra wide black elastic with loops to hold tools in place, while the surgical tools are made from polymer clay and painted with acrylics.
