Mayuri "Mayushii" Shiina - Steins;Gate


I fell in love with Mayushii almost instantly, she really is a precious cinnamon roll! She's also a total weeb who loves chicken, so how can I not love her...
I've convinced Devil_trigger to be Okarin with me, but I'd love a full group at some point.

Felted from scratch, and covered in the same material as the dress. The bows are folded ribbon.

Aqua silky lycra, with pink chiffon and black velvet details. I still think it's not quite the right length but I love how it swooshes!

Just shop-bought black leggings cut to length, and off-white jersey gathered around the bottoms of the legs.

Felt, with wadding, bi-stretch and interfacing linings. Making the pattern for the face was really fun! This isn't a canon thing, but I thought it would be easier than carrying a huge cushion.

A silly idea I had. It's a banana guard, but I painted it horrific-bright green, then drizzled epoxy glue all over it to give the melty look, and added some more coats of green.

Wearing her first at Midlands 2016, but hopefully she'll make a few outings throughout the year.

MIDLANDS MCM: It was freezing cold, but otherwise I'm really happy with how the cosplay looked and felt! My hat stayed put, and people LOVED the gelnana!

Upa baaaag!

I decided to do this on a whim, just to give myself extra work... Making plushes and bags to go with my cosplays is one of my favourite things, so I decided to make this one really squishy with wadding and interfacing c: The outside body and the details are made of felt, the gold is bias and the lining is bi stretch. I've added the ears and straps to this since the photo, and I'm really proud of the face!

Okay so this thing was the most daunting aspect of this cosplay: HOW DO?? The design is based off a mob cap, so I started out making a mock-up one of those and it honestly looked like I was trying to look like a Victorian baby. Sooo I tried again, this time using interfacing to give it some body , and that was a disaster too. It didn't have the right shape or body to it at all, and it was flimsy as heck. TAKE THREE was third time lucky. This time I tried felting a hat/dome to use as a base and then covered it in spare dress fabric. Luckily I found a tutorial that involved using craft felt and it turned out pretty well and it was sturdy! Just to be sure, I gave it a thin coat of millinery solution and it did the trick brilliantly. Only a really good thump is going to squash this hat! Covering it was pretty easy, as I could just stretch the fabric over the top until it was smooth. The brim is actually an offcut from the bottom of my dress, folded and gathered to fit. There's a bit of interfacing in there too, so it doesn't flop over my eyes c: It's not perfect by any stretch or means, but I'm still pretty happy with it! I just need the bows now! (Please excuse the lighting, and my tired/ill face haha)
