Cosplayer Lulu Miyazawa > Costume of Mia from .hack//INFECTION
About this Costume
- Personal Thoughts:
- I can sincerely say that this is my biggest fail in cosplay up to this date. My personal anthropomorphic version of Mia was my project for this year's World Cosplay Summit preselection in Spain to go with my boyfriend's awesome Balmung. My biggest problem was that I seriously underestimated her, and I ended up asking my boyfriend for help with the armor, which he did wonderfully in the little amount of time we had left. But many things need a lot of improvement, even though we didn't sacrifice any of the multiple little details of this costume.
There was an added difficulty because this cosplay was constructed in order to be easily removed, since our skit main "twist" was myself transforming into Phase.6 (Macha, The Temptress), and not thinking carefully about optimizing everything more and not being able to rehearse with both full cosplays due to time constraints was our downfall, and I wasn't fast enough to change on stage. Plus almost all armour pieces used adhesive velcro and my tighs opened just before going on stage and it was impossible to close them again u___u
I learned tons of things with this costume, and I still love Mia as a character, but I feel really sad when looking at the skit or the few photos I have T_T My wonderful make-up was done by Lirin, thank you so much, sweetie!
I'm already starting to revamp this slowly and without a deadline to give Mia the love she deserves :3
- Styling Notes
- No styling this time: the wig was put as it came out of the package, and it looked very nice and natural despite its color! (which surprisingly matched the fur color perfectly). I love it <3
