Cosplayer Pirogoeth > Costume of Miho Tohya from MegaTokyo
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The hoodie is the official one, I got it from the MegaTokyo booth at Ohayocon 2012. Ninj4 just do not wear skirts, so she's wearing skinny jeans. And black Converse are really quiet shoes, great for being sneaky in. And are quite l337.
The only thing I didn't own and had to make was the mask. I bought a foot of black t-shirt jersey material, finished off the edges, and tied it on. Nothing to it!
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is a random 'fan art' closet cosplay. The idea of Miho being a l337 ninj4 just popped into my head one day and wouldn't leave. I took this as I sign that I should do it.
- Styling Notes
- Since I a)really like how her hair is currently (long in the back) and b)I want to do a couple looks with her hair like that, I'm going with the long hair instead of chopping it off. So that means minimal styling! First, I straightened it out. Thank goodness it's heat resistant. Then I fluffed the bangs up a little bit and give them a quick trim. Finally I cut the little bits in the front so they were the right length, and she was structurally ready to go.
But Miho also has that ribbon going through her hair. I learned from my first attempt, getting that thing to stay curled on the sides is HARD! Also, she doesn't always have the ribbon in. So I had an idea. I bought some wired black ribbon and am going to divide it into three parts: one for the top, two for the sides. Each section will attach with wig clips under the front sections. This way I can use whatever I need for the look, and it's much easier to restyle when traveling!
- Wig Review
- I really should have simply sold the wig I originally got for her and ordered this one from Arda to begin with. But I was still new to wigs and really thought I could make it work. Yeah, that was a major fail.
This time I did much, much better. Heck, just buying a wig that already has bangs is a huge improvement!
