Cosplayer Yaya (AngelicStar) > Costume of Mima Kirigoe from Perfect Blue
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume came together easily enough, but I had a hard time at first deciding what color scheme to go with. In some scenes, the dress looks light pink with hot pink layers, but that would have been way too pink, even for me O_O. Instead I went with the promotional pictures and made the costume white and pink, with hot pink bows/red shoes. The top of the dress is boned and tailored to me, and I hand-gathered the layers and trim to ensure they ruffled evenly and as per reference. The wig was interesting, as Mima's hair is so choppy in the movie. I ended up cutting and styling the hell out of a random black layered wig I found locally.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Despite having known about Perfect Blue for a decade and seen Millenium Actress, I had never watched the movie until this winter O_o. Shameful, I know! That being said, I loved the story and the character of Mimarin, so for Anime South, I made her stage outfit from the Cham performance.
