Katamari Damacy is one of the most bizarre, insanely colourful and ridiculously fun and addictive games on the face of the earth! To anyone who hasn't played it.. YOU MUST! I had first played Katamari Damacy back in 2004 and I fell in love with it right away! It was so quirky, and oddly you get a sick satisfaction out of rolling up various things!
A friend of mine started organising a group of the cousins from the game for Anime North 2011 and I immediately jumped on board as the Katamari series is one of my all time favourite game series. I chose to do Ichigo! I have always thought her design was adorable and thought it would be a lot of fun to do. I chose to go with her Katamari Damacy design instead of her later designs because I liked the pink at the bottom of the costume and wanted little bloomers! I spent forever figuring out the exact dimensions the costume should be, and I am really proud of the results! Also all of the seeds on my costume are actual seeds! Though, pumpkin seeds, not strawberry (obviously). The entire costume was drafted and made by me! I also detailed the shoes! Sadly the body suit for this costume has died, but I would like to make another costume!
