Costume Information

Cost : Roughly £45 not including wig and boots
Time Taken : Long enough. On and off, about 10 hours?

I like iM@S, despite it being incredibly girly. I like a lot of the characters, but many of them I am unsuited to (i.e. Yayoi, as she does not have BEWBS), so I chose Miki instead, who I think is adorable and hilarious all in one. Fun times. I don't expect anyone to know who I am, but it feels cool knowing I'll be the first British iM@S cosplayer 8'D
Not to mention I love a lot of her outfits, I don't want to stop at this one.


Update!: Miki is now almost at 100% completion, so I might as well put her down as complete on CosIsland. The patterns for the jacket and the body were drafted completely from scratch (apart from the shorts, I cheated and used a store-bought pattern for those) and would have cost a hell of a lot less if I hadn't gone out and bought a practice material first (which I totally screwed up.) The jacket is lined with the same material that the body is made of, and I forsee much coldness when this is worn.
THINGS LEFT TO DO: Wait for wig to arrive and style very slightly; find and buy white boots; create bootcover things and add; attach hooks to body and jacket so nothing falls off; finish learning dance and pray I'm accepted to the masq.

I know most of Go My Way!! (was planning to enter it to the masquerade, but they haven't contacted me back yet...) and if I get bored over winter I might try and learn another, who knows~

I made it myself, drew out the patterns and everything! It was a hell of a task though, I was trying to figure out how to make it for a couple of months before I started work on it.
