Costume Information

Cost : £40
Time Taken : 6

Hadn't really planned to do this, however while in Camden market I saw this little hat that was so cute I just had to buy it, I then remembered that Miku had a little hat like this, I had also seen this dress online that looked alot like her dress in Magnet, so once they get my size back in stock I'll buy it too :) Then all I have to do is get the main part of her hair (I have the ponytails) and then make the butterfly headphones, which I had wanted to do anyway as I thought they looked awesome :)

Okay just bought the dress :) *fingers crossed it fits*
I would have liked to make this but its beyond my skill at the moment :(

Will most likely wear this to the Party at the MCM in October and/or Friday of the MCM :) Depending on how my others go :)

Complete! (Posted 26th October 2010)

Everything is done, I'm pretty happy with it all and am excited to wear it at the MCM, I'll be wearing her on Friday, so come say Hi if you see me! =D

Dress Complete! (Posted 12th October 2010)

So the dress is finally done, someone at work shortened it for me (knee length on everyone else is almost full length on me apparently o.o) The white fabric with lace can be taken off and is secured by velcro, it took me ages to sew the lace to it as I had to hand sew it, and although its still a little messy I'm really happy with it! Will be finishing the headphones tonight and then Miku is DONE! The gloves were bought of ebay for £2 :)

Headphones Progress - almost done (Posted 28th September 2010)

Headphones are almost done!
Need to cover the back of wings to neaten it up, then I'm going to add some wire that will then attach to the hat instead of having the big thick band that most headphones have, as in most of the references I've looked at of her she doesn't actually have a full headset they just magically cover her ears. Also it's easier for me XD

Wig and Headphones (Posted 31st July 2010)

Photo doesn't do the paper justice, its so pretty and sparkly, I'm really happy with how this is going, need to sort out what headphones I'm going to use but that shouldn't be a problem :)
Just ordered the wig too, finally got some money to do so! Fingers crossed the colour matches the ponytails I have already, although if it doesn't I'm not buying another it will just have to do :)

Headphones (Posted 27th July 2010)

Started work on Miku headphones :) Printed out the pattern then stuck it on some cardboard (Frosties cereal box :D still has the cereal in it actually XD Thank god for bags) and then cut around :) Hoping Dad has a knife I can borrow to cut out the middle bits :)

Dress (Posted 25th July 2010)

The dress arrived :D I haven't tried it on yet, as it looks reaalllly small XD but I'm hoping I'll fit in it by October :) Scrap that!! I tried it on!
OMG it actually fits! its so short but it fits!! :D So amazed XD
Need to buy some ribbon to go around the back as its just plain there, quite happy with it though :)
