Information

For the omake and ball of Amecon 2012 :D I was originally going to make a rainbow style dress for my skit, and then CrystalNeko mentioned how she was doing Luka that evening so felt it would be nice to have Miku wear the dress ;)

HOW I MADE IT:

Since this was my own design I had the freedom to fiddle about with the way things turned out :)

The base dress is made out of white cotton (which was a bit of a mistake as it is a PAIN to iron!) that was made using a dress pattern, and then the bottom half was dyed sky blue to imitate clouds and the sky (it was supposed to be gradient dyed but we kinda mucked that up, buuut I like the effect nonetheless!)

The cardigan/shrug is made out of red and violet acetate satin. The edges are sealed with bias binding in a rainbow hue that I thought was so perfect! It's closed together with a pretty button my mum had in her button box XD

The long trailing chiffon pieces are attached to the shrug, and connect to the back (except the green piece, that trails down the front). This gave me headaches as trying to use pinking shears on chiffon is hard and annoying and it still frayed a bit during the day OTL and I have tons left over as I only used a fraction of the amount I bought XDD whooops!

I did use all of the rainbow organza though! This piece was attached to the back of the shrug, gathered in the middle to make it poof, and then they come out to the wristbands that are sewn onto elastic for easy putting on/taking off.

The wig was borrowed from my friend Charlie (Street-Angel), and the headband was created by buying a purple headband from Claires, and then I bought a bunch of white cotton pompoms as well as bits of small ribbon in the 7 rainbow colours. I glued the pompoms on in a clump to make a cloud, and then glued on the ribbons so they could be fanned out etc etc.

The red choker was velvet ribbon, with a purple sequin sewn on and attached with velcro! The earrings were bought and handmade by an artisan on Ebay <3
