Series: Perfect Blue
Variation: Red Idol Dress
Worn at: Acen 2013, Colossalcon 2013
Motivation: My partner in cosplay crime had made the Rumi version and asked me to make the Mima verson to go with her and I can never say no to a size a propreate cosplay. Also look at those skirts, I had ruffles for days.
Construction: The bodice is actually a steel boned corset with 8 flat and 4 spiral stays. I lined it in donut fabric to be a butt. The skirt is three red soft pleated circle skirts with horse hair ribbon in the hem. Between the red skirts there are layers of gathered black tulle to increase the puff.
Thoughts: It’s so fluffy!! I’m also happy to have a costume that while glamorous looking is super easy to wear.
