|I love Transformers, and I really like Miko from Transformers Prime. She's cute but isn't afraid to get rough, and I love the partnership she has with Bulkhead in the series.|
I didn't think I'd ever actually cosplay Miko (mostly because of the wig I'd have to work on, eep!), but after sorting through my leftover fabric from past projects, I realised I had quite a lot of what I would need to make her outfit. After some debating and coming to the conclusion that I probably wouldn't have any other use for the materials I'd use up, I decided to go ahead and start making her!
Hopefully this won't turn out to be expensive, and I imagine most of the cost will go into the boots and the wig. :)

Earrings have been bought, leggings were finished last night :B
Suh-weet! (Posted 17th June 2012)
The fabric that I ordered for the leggings arrived last week, and today they are a-go-go :B I'm not sure if I'm looking forward to making the stripes - not that it'll be difficult, just tedious, probably.
Also forgot to mention that I finished the undershirt a while ago.
Late night sewing (Posted 29th May 2012)
I couldn't sleep due to the heat (it's so warm at the moment! @__@), so I decided to do some late night sewing, and I've finished Miko's shorts now :D
Ring ring! (Posted 27th May 2012)
I wasn't going to have any props for this costume, but I've acquired a (broken) pink flip phone and thought it'd be good for Miko. It won't switch on, but it's not like I need it to, as it's only going to be used for photos.

Overshirt's done, shorts have been started. Also started and completed the wristband today.
Progress (Posted 22nd May 2012)
Started working on this costume on Monday after a raid through my leftover fabric...
The pink undershirt's tacked together, although I still need to cut some sleeves out of the fabric I have. After I've run the pieces through the machine I'll just need to stitch the purple trim on and it'll be done :D
The blue overshirt is nearly done too; I just need to make the green robot logo and put it on the shirt. I'll probably make it out of felt or something.
I also have some jeans to cut up into shorts too :)
