Cosplayer Jetspectacular > Costume of Lynn Minmay from Macross
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- One of the more simple dresses in Minmay's arsenal hahaha. I actually started out by altering one a cheongsam I had at home but that was too dark.. I happened to find this vintage dress base at a Japanese thirft store, I altered the side leg slits and added the mandarin collar and chiffon shawl. I used nailpolish on the flower to make it a bit more sparkly~ Feels so weird cosplaying Minmay (after cosplaying Hikaru!) with double the amount of eye makeup, but also fun! haha ... confession, the dress is actually geen in the TV series, but the 2012 reanimated shorts for pachinko has it in pink, which I just HAD to do.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I needed a quick Minmay dress for the JAM Project concert in Hollywood on August 18. I flipped out when Tim suggested we do a duet as Basara and Minmay (haha also I sewed his Basara cos like.. 5 years ago??!) Never in my life did I dream that (1) I would get to sing my favorite Fukuyama/Fire Bomber song to an audience that actually knew it and sang along, or (2) THAT I WOULD GET TO SEE JAM PROJECT LIVE AND ONLY 3 FEET AWAY FROM ME. so glad I got this dress done asap ^^; even though I did that concert in heels, jumping and fistpumping as Minmay, it was all worth it. What a great concert and experience with friends!
