Luchia Nanami (Luchias mermaid princess outfit taken from an artbook image) - Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch




This was my first cosplay i'd made myself and completed so i was really nervous about wearing it as i was afraid that it wouldn't look anywhere near as good as other peoples outfits. The design is based on a picture of luchia in this outfit and it only appears in this one picture lol. Unfortuntaly, due to time restraints i couldn't do everything i wanted to do such as put frills around the bows, but hopefully i can add these on if i wear the outfit again. There are a lot of first's on this (obviously) as there are two zips involved and i've never put one on anything before let alone an outfit, plus most of it with the exception of the actual peachy coloured tail part, was done without any pattern and was based on my own idea on what it should look like lol.

The bra was a hard thing to do as i had to ensure that it'd still fit with all the extra bits on. Plus it's an underwire bra and sewing machine needles tend to break if they accidentally go over the wire lol.

Despite the fact that it was rather rushed and was my first, i was really, really happy with it. I loved wearing it even if i did have to pick the tail up to walk in it lol. Loads of people at the expo recongised it which made me feel really happy and several people commented on it and were quite shocked to hear it was my first outfit.
