Cosplayer Hanyaan > Costume of Makoto Kikuchi from iDOLM@STER
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This is a hot mess of terrible fabrics which I recommend you never sew with ever. The pink stuff is confetti sparkle sequin fabric backed with pink quilter cotton, the white on the top is satin (but the white on the chaps is fake suede for extra hilarity with the fringe on the inserts), and all the gold is left over gold spandex from when I made Maguma's Enrico Pucci costume a few months before. (Finally, I get to recycle ridiculous stuff!) The jewelry is craft foam and spandex. I broke so many needles trying to deal with the glue on the confetti dot fabric... it was all worth it though.
For the PMX performance with Angel Hearts, I redid the top and chaps and adjusted the fit on the jumpsuit, along with acquiring a new wig. I like this costume a LOT more now!
- Personal Thoughts:
- this is the pinkest shiniest shit i have ever made. ever.
also i am totally anime elvis, some guy at fanime told me so.
- Styling Notes
- The darkest (first) wig is actually my old very fried and very dead black-haired Howl wig which I kind of somewhat repurposed for iDOLM@STER 2 Makoto. It looked like ass, so I replaced it with a new wig, an Epic Cosplay gunmetal grey wig that i boiled with some brown and black RIT dye to give it that black brown tinge. Unfortunately I had to go back and straighten the entire wig weft-by-weft afterwards and that was a big pain that I never want to do again... until I decide I want a new im@s 1 wig too!
