Yukari from Paradise Kiss (Blue Ballgown) (2013)
Joshua Hart: "Paradise Kiss is my favorite anime/manga; and Yukari's ball gown has been on my costume "wish-list" for many years. After seeing talented cosplayers create this dress to perfection, I knew I needed to make my version memorable and unique. This dress is covered in over 40,000 swarovski rhinestones. Each flower was meticulously applied by tweezer and epoxy glue. And, for this reason, this is one of my most expensive and heavy costumes. This costume took three months of work, including the underpinning."
