Top - I made Fuu's top using the same method that I used for Hikaru's. It was a simple loose tube of white fabric with an elastic at the top and some excess fabric for the built in ruffle. The long flowy panels were sewn onto the back of the top; there were four in total were made from a light chiffon.

Armband - The armband was made by simply making a cylinder out of fabric larger than my forearm and adding an elastic hem at the wrist end. The green ribbons were sewn onto the back of the armband.
Boot Covers - Since the source image didn't show what kind of boots she was wearing, I had to improvise what I thought would be on her legs and feet. I settled on an asymmetric boot cover design where one boot cover extended slightly past her knee and the other hovered around ankle height, Both boot covers were made using a slightly tampered cylinder of fabric of different lengths. The taller one also had a green ribbon sewn into the top as an embellishment.
Armour - Most of the effort that went into this costume was focused on the armour portions. The were ankle pieces and pauldrons, a hip plate and a knee cover. All the armour was made using EVA foam with acrylic paint. I decided to make the pauldrons "float" as they seem to not be supported by her shoulders at all in the source artwork. I also magnified their size to emphasize the unrealistic proportions that Clamp loves to use in their art.
