About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I bought a wig that was on clearance on Cosplay.com. It was designed to be pulled back from the face. Miho has bangs. So I tried to cut some in and it didn't quite work.
I wore a dark purple t-shirt with a black bodice over with some arm-warmers I had made myself. I thought the detail on her bodice was something I couldn't replicate, so I went with what I had.
I bought a skirt from Goodwill and shortened it. Big mistake. The skirt was too small. I shortened it too much. It looked bad. It also didn't help that I was wearing some tights I had bought at Jo-Ann's when they were clearing out the Halloween stuff.
The boots were given to me by a friend of mine years ago. She didn't wear them anymore and thought I could use them for a cosplay. Little did we know how useful those boots would end up being. My only complaint is how stiff those soles are, but it seems to be either flexible soles or chunky soles.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I have always loved Miho. One day I decided to go ahead and try to put together her Polesitting look. I let the details overwhelm me and decided to go for a look that was 'close enough'.
