|Time Taken :||70|
|Because I am naturally blonde and the character was, I decided it would be a great idea to do this cosplay.|
I participated in the 2011 Cosplay Contest at Uppcon in Uppsala, Sweden wearing it. There were only one more Mami at the whole convention that year, and mine was the only made from scratch.
The boots were my old winterboots that I remade the outside of because I was very poor at the time. I made a fake unboob corset to make it look like im wearing one, but I love breathing so a real one was out of the question.
The rifle is made of wood and to make the details i pasted on this foam paper and painted it to look right. Trigger is a part of metal I found in the workshop at my parents place and in the end of everything, it look pretty good for the purpose.
To make my hair stay like that i twirled it into very tight buns, then took a whole bottle of hairspray and sprayed it on. then i let it stay like that all day before the event. It looked somewhat good half of the day at least.
