Lenalee Lee / リナリー・リー / D.Gray-man

Lenalee Lee from D.Gray-man

Variation: original cheongsam

With D.Gray-Myu at ALA 2007

Inspiration: For a short period of time, I was part of the cosplay group D.Gray-Myu. This was one of two projects I did with them. Because Anime Los Angeles is close to both our New Year and Chinese New Year, we did a formal group. We all got a color and did an original outfit based off the character. Mine was purple, and since Lenalee is Chinese, I made a cheongsam.

Costume Notes: As simple as this is, I was pretty proud of it. I made it from scratch instead of just buying a dress from Chinatown, which would have been much easier! I was still pretty new at sewing at this point, so it was very satisfying to make it myself.

As the group dissolved and this isn’t really a costume I’d wear on my own, I’ve never worn it since that one time the group wore theirs together. Ah well!
