Cosplayer Kichara > Costume of Meiko from Vocaloid
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- When ordering vinyl for my Rider costume, I found this gorgeous wine red 4 way stretch vinyl on clearance. I've always thought racing queen outfits were cute and sexy, so I decided to go ahead and get the vinyl to make one for Meiko.
The vinyl (the black especially) wound up being a bit of nightmare to work with, and it took MUCH longer to get this done than anticipated, mostly because I had to handstitch so much because the vinyl wouldn't run through my machine, even with a teflon foot + wax paper. D:
I really like how the numbers came out on the back though, and the overall design (although when I was drafting the pattern I accidentally made the cleavage cut WAY too low, but couldn't really fix it afterwards lol). I would really like to make some boot covers for this to match in the future (I wound up just wearing sneakers because my feet were sore from weird cosplay shoes during the day).
Also hoping to get some nice daytime shots of this sometime, so the camera flash isn't going crazy against the shiny vinyl, and I can open up the sweet matching umbrella I bought just to go with the costume~
