I need to cosplay something without blue hair, this is ridiculous!
This was taken yesterday at a small gathering at the San Jose Convention Center, where Fanime 2011 will take place 3 months from now. I made this cosplay back in December for a Vocaloid-only gathering, but my Miku couldn't make it, and I didn't know when I'd ever wear this.
I bought and altered the shirt with a basic, turquoise cotton, which I also used to make the tie (not pictured), and belts. I bought the gloves at Daiso, and custom-dyed them to match. The megaphone is made from a plastic drink pitcher, painted black, and craft foam attached for the rim. The holster-thing is just a basic glasses case from Lens Crafters, and the wig is my friend's Miku wig without the pigtails (I've been overusing this wig so much >.<).

About the costume: The wig is my friend's, but I've done all the styling, which involved cutting the tails and untangling them with Motions Oil Sheen. The red ribbon is velvet, and I took about 5 minutes to make it look nice...I bought the shirt at Target as a size L, and altered it with elastic and black ribbon. I found the skirt floating around in my house, but it was too long so I am practically wearing it as a dress under my shirt! The shoes are my prized Oxford heels from Forever 21~ They kept sinking into the mud, silly weather (>3<)

Cosplay and photo retouching by myself
Should I post a list of what I use for my cosplay makeup? I have another event this weekend, followed by a week off from school, so I'm going to try to make a nice list of the products I use...after I find my translucent powder. I have no idea where it went.
