    Oh! a finally Costume Thread! I always like their costumes, especially where they look similar from distance, giving a sense of uniformity, but looking closely the details are different for each one of them, like on the belt, sleeve, shoulder, tie, or neck parts
    As for long time favorites, I like the red tartan uniform variation of 2011 (?)

    and also the Beginner jacket with hood :

    My biased favorite is Team 8 2016 Winter costume, the white coat is just very nice and elegant in my opinion.

    Oh and for those who don't know yet, some AKB48's costumes, like the latest ones for Kouhaku Utagassen with BNK48 are designed/produced by Osare Company which has twitter and instagram showing the details here:

    Hands down, BwT

    A few misses among the 30s(?) but overall really aesthetically pleasing to the eye

    Other honorable mentions,

    [​IMG]
    When worn, they look really fluffy and warm and pretty

    [​IMG]
    The dresses are very everyday looking (in a good way) and the designated dresses for the members even match them so bonus points

    The 2013 profile dresses are adorable too except I’m not that big of a fan of the skirts. Especially the senbatsu member ones.

    There is this one costume I’m obsessed over. It appeared on Takamina’s graduation if I remember correctly. All the groups had similar styles but in different pastel colors. It’s like a floral dress with a white vest blazer kinda thing. Some of the sleeves are thin see through puffed ruffles.

    I like this uniform, so classy and fabulous. You can't really go wrong with the classic black and white.

    I also like their outfit from Kibouteki Refrain and Iiwake Maybe

    I think that kind of look is just awesome, that would even look good with pants under it, I think maybe paradoxically that the somewhat longer skirts are sexier then shorter, and showing just a little skin is that as well.

    Isn't Iiwake Maybe uniform is what ori member successor wore in AKB0048? That, for me is a legend.

    Let me memorize, from A7?

    BTW JKT48 Haiten costume & MV are powered by Toei. One of Japan's top film maker recently opened a branch in Indonesia, the 3rd aboard after China & Hongkong.
