Cosplayer Melfina > Costume of Miki Hoshii from iDOLM@STER
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- For being such a little costume, it sure was more work than it originally seemed. XD Sewing DEM SLEEVES in Confetti Dot fabric was probably the bane of my existence, what with the weird seams and crazy white stripe down the middle with the open circle cut out.
Also, HANDCUFFS, BECAUSE MIKI'S A SKANK. XD The belt and leg-warmers are stretch-knit. The little dangly jewelry pieces and crest-thingie were cut out of Sintra and then painted with Lumiere paint in Bright Gold.
For the bra-top, I used a cheap super-padded push-up bra and covered it with the same gold stretch vinyl used on other parts of the costume. Shorts were heavily modified from a pattern for skinny jeans, and boot covers were made using a pattern that Andrea and Katie had whipped up for all of us to use!
- Personal Thoughts:
- Gyahh Miki ;A; I think she's adorable no matter what anyone says. XD She likes sleep and dislikes struggling and hardship as much as me, so it was pretty much meant-to-be :3
- Styling Notes
- Cut in layers with a razor, and styled flippy parts with a steamer and freeze-spray.
