About this Costume
Construction Details:
My husband wanted me to cosplay Hotaru so badly for AoD, so I pumped this costume out within a week and a half.

I used McCall's M7197 for the skirt. I altered the waistband to be thicker, and I took 3 inches off of the bottom hem. I used McCall's M7071 for the blouse, altering it slightly.

My top isn't 100% accurate since I didn't have the yoke of the blouse go around the back neckline like Hotaru's does in the show. I suppose I could fix that now, but I was pressed for time while making it.

Instead of doing pin tucks like Hotaru has on the yoke of her blouse, I faked the look using single fold bias tape.

The base shoes I bought on ebay and addedd the ankle/leg straps. I also removed the main strap and replaced it with my own, making it attach with a snap instead of a buckle.

The gold suspender clips were really hard to find. I managed to salvage them from suspenders I got on sale at Macy's & Goodwill. It was nearly impossible to find any suspenders with gold clips! They all have silver toned ones!

Personal Thoughts:
The series itself is really fun and very informative about cheap Japanese candy! I love it!
