|I love me some Mia - she's so cool - and mention of a Fey sisters group confirmed the idea in my head. It's also something fairly simple and comfortable that I can run around a con in without too much hassle.|
As she wears the same outfit, older or younger, with minor variation, I can get away with both versions!
This was pretty simple to make. I bought a dress from eBay, took off the sleeves, replaced them with some from a charity shop blouse (I have big arms) and took up the hem - a lot! I added white fabric to the collar too.
The bustier was another purchase, with some bias binding added to the edge for greater accuracy.
The shoes are my old school shoes, painted white. The belt was from eBay, also painted white.
The scarf is made from real silk, constructed as a basic long rectangle. It feels gorgeous ^_^
The magatama is made from a type of air-drying modelling clay that already happened to be that colour. I can't remember what it was called but it was really friendly to work with, although the magatama shape wasn't exactly challenging.
I've worn two wigs for this costume, as I initially lost the one I'd bought and had to improvise with my Karin Koenig wig sans ponytails. I found the original wig for Ame (someone had stuffed it down the back of the sofa!). Both wigs have fringes that I swept to the side to give an illusion of Mia's side parting.
