Description
This is the costume for the Vocaloids main singer Hatsune Miku... my friend suggested to make her as I didnt know who to do as my first proper cosplay...
She is a popular anime character within the SAS (southampton anime society)

The easiest part was the head bands they came togehter without too much fuss which was handy... :)

The hardest part is finding a suitable wig and making sure that I stick to my reference pictures and planning sheet I have on my wall, Luck has prevail and I have now got the perfect wig from cosplay wigs on ebay...

I learnt to never really work with leatherette again and it may look easy on paper but it could be a really pain when you start doing and making a certain piece.

I put my cosplay on the other day and I must say it is rather comfortable the skirt is a little heavy, however the wig is the heaviest part of the whole cosplay, especially with the headphones and hair piece in place. The headphones are now made and completed, a few touch ups on the shoes and pieces and will be expo ready. :D
