Description
I'M STILL REALLY BITTER OVER WHAT HAPPENED TO HER.

Mami is my favourite character from this series. I don't know why, something about her caught my attention! I liked a lot about her and I was pretty devastated after episode 3. Nonetheless, she's remained my favourite and I absolutely adore this series!

This all depends on whether or not I think I can pull off the blonde hair. I'm not so confident after Peach and I don't like characters where it'l pull my hair off my face so this is a realy big thing for me!
If I decide Mami is a big no-no, I'll most likely do another character from the series. I like pretty much everyone!

...Apart from Sayaka. She bugs me.

Journal

Boots (Posted 4th April 2012)

Boot covers are done! They're not very good but oh well, it's better than wearing normal boots? The bottom of my normal shoes peeks out a little so I'm not too sure what to think of these.

Make-Up Test (Posted 10th July 2011)

Today, I did a make-up test for Mami which I'm kinda pleased with! I was worried since I couldn't pull off the wig at all without make-up on apparently if I apply a lot of it that's all good. The false eyelashes are temporary; they were the only pair which I could actually find in my room and were applied in a rush. I'm wearing far too much make-up here I think (as I said, I do NOT look like myself) but... I kinda like it. Maybe I will go for a more dramatic eyelash type than I normally would.

This took around 15 - 30 minutes to apply.

Progress (Posted 22nd June 2011)

I'm almost finished this! I just need to buy appropriate stockings / socks for this! I really don't suit blonde hair so I need to work on my make-up and lightening my eyebrows. I plan to have my eyebrows waxed rather thinly on the Thursday before Fushicon but if this isn't possible I'm going to rehearse lightening them!

The actual body of the outfit needs taken in a lot as it's rather baggy on me and I'm unhappy with how it looks. A few days before Fushicon I plan on having this taken in to fit my body as close as possible and I'm highly considering in investing in a smaller petticoat to give the skirt some extra oomph.

Wig (Posted 29th May 2011)

So the base wig for this came on Tuesday(24/05/2011). I was humming and ahhing over whether or not I should style it and eventually got around to it. It was so nerve wracking since I've never had to style a wig on this extent. It's not completely finished and I'll go back and make changes to it for sure but this is what it's like for now. I need to invest in... is it called got2be? :S
I used character references of Mami whilst doing this, as well as using photos from people who have already cosplayed her to see what I like best. So yes, this isn't the final version but it's like this for now. :)
