Costume Information

Cost : £20
Time Taken : 9 hours

My friends want to do a FF9 group, ergo I decided to be Mikoto (spelling?)~

I despise the wig: it's too short... but we deal, we deal. Styled by tying two bunches at the front on each side, then covering the bobbles with tubes of pink t-shirt material
The poncho is pink tshirt material, with a white satin semicircle on the front. I sewed a small seam to make sort-of-sleeves on each side. The spare material made the tubes for the wig~
The jumper is just a black polo neck. Shop bought from ASDA I think...
The skirt is a wraparound skirt made of white satiny material (it was spare from a different costume), with the pattern made from spare pink t-shirt fabric.
I reused a lot of fabric with this XD
The boots are somple pink ugg-style boots I bought, with satin covers sewn on (these covers are to be remade with fleece, and to be made removable as I took off the covers to use the boots for Dawn.)

I loved being a member of the FF9 group, despite being a really minor character. The costume was nice and warm (it was freezing outside that day!) but not too hot when inside.

I need to replay FFIX as I can barely remember Mikoto, although you managed to pull her off very well c:
