More Info...

This costume debuted at AnimeExpo 1996.  Kimberly really wanted to recreate Sharon Apple.  The concept of a holographic seductress fascinated her...  Once again, Kimberly selected an obscure version (see Deunan) to make, using a single Sharon Apple illustration in Newtype Magazine (May '95).  It was Kimberly's first experience with Ben Nye make-up, and we were both pleased with the results.  The biggest challenge was creating Sharon's "hair antenna".  Using a feather, I placed synthetic hair on it, then covered it in Sobo glue.  Once it dried, I cut out the desired shape.  The glue dried clear, so all you see is the texture.  This lightweight hair adornment was attached via sprint gum to Kimberly's forehead.  At the time, it was one of the few representations of this sexy and mysterious character.  Sadly, the costume was neither recognized nor well-received at the time, because not many American fans had access to Japanese publications, many which contain original illustrations.  Since it was not from the film everyone saw, we guess unfamiliar costumes go over some people's heads.
