Costume Information

General
Cost : £30ish
Time Taken : About 3 days in total

Description
Well, for the body, there's 2 pink puffed sleeves, a main ruffled bodice fitted around the bust. Underneath this, a white apron, and a white bow on the back to finish.

I made the skirt seperately, with a white trim, cack-handedly sewn together with velcro to keep it together ^^;

The corset is stiff, with 4 red buttons on the front, and two white lines either side. You're meant to see a small gap between the two ends of the corset.

The hairslide is pink with black frills and golden buttons that hold up two red ribbons, tied in a bow.

It's accompanied with black dolly shoes and BIG BIG HAIR.

Mikuru is so damn cute, so I cosplayed her. That is the reason :)

Hardest part was probably bringing the bodice all together. Sewing machines can sometimes make things HARDER.
