About this Costume
Construction Details:
Started patterning mid summer of 2013, finished wig late January 2014.

Shirt: first time ever patterning a shirt, first time ever using jersey. Thin, cheapass, discount $1/yard jersey because I felt like asking for trouble with my sewing machine. Accidentally bought something that wasn't actually iron-on transfer paper, it's more like iron-on printed cotton. It can be peeled off, so the graphic is on the list of "to re-do"s.

Skirt: thrifted a long pencil skirt because I loved the weight and color of the fabric, cut up and reassembled the fabric to be a long strip, pleated it, and reattached to waistband. Placed its zipper up the front under the "middle" pleat. Still needs the other two buttons.

Thought I had cannon socks until I heard the reference I was looking at had them uncolored and that they should be light pink. *shrugs*

Personal Thoughts:
Wahaha~

So this was my first cosplay. Personally, I think I bit off a bit much, but I'm still happy with it. Basically I reeeeeaaally really love Misha, and this outfit is why I downloaded KS back in 2012. So it only made sense to do a tribute to it~

So in my Ohayocon pic, I forgot my nude bra at home, hahaha, and even though I had on a camisole, my blue one was too bright to wear... so I went without... so the shirt did not fit the way it was supposed to. I'm actually not that sad I didn't find any con pictures afterwards because of that. In the Colossal pics, I not only had a bra but I stuffed it too, since Misha is much more.... endowed than I am.

About the wig, I just have a feeling I'll never achieve the drills the way I want to, so I think she's being retired until I acquire more wig experience.
