About this Costume
Construction Details:
Corset: Since Mami's underbust corset has yellow stripes on it, I made them into boning channels for support. I drafted my own pattern according to my measurements.

Everything (corset, blouse, hair pieces, hat, arm warmers, gloves, skirt, wig styling) was made by me except for the socks and boots.
Personal Thoughts:
This was my first serious cosplay coming out of my hiatus. It was so much fun cosplaying with a group of friends. To be honest, I was reluctant to watch this series but my friend (Airyo) sat me down one day for a marathon of the anime and I really enjoyed it.

Styling Notes
The wig came with a ponytail extension- which I took apart to add more volume and length to the pigtails I tied on the base wig. I used two balloons, wrapped each pigtail around them, and added generous layers of clear tacky glue to create Mami's big curls. When the fibers dried, I popped the balloons and trimmed each pigtail for a cleaner look. It was kind of a gamble- I wasn't sure if this method was going to work but I'm glad (and thankful) that it did!
