I fell in love with Msyu the moment she appears. She's like Taiga, but ruffly! I knew it would be a challenge, but I really wanted to cosplay her.
Skirt and top: The skirts are two levels of three circle skirts with horsehair/braid sewn into the hem to give the "clamp" ruffle look (so glad Msyu wears shorts...). The top is a full bodice cut down (to prevent me from flashing or the top slipping) with hand tacked down ruffles.
Stockings: The stockings are 5-toed stockings I found on eBay and airbrushed by my airbrush artist friend Han. Took 2 hours standing a cold garage. Worth every second. I tried to attached fake nails to the stocking, but haven't come up with a viable way to do this yet.
Gloves: Red gloves that I made and were airbrushed by my friend Han again with fake nails attached to the fingers. I think when I wear this again, I will just paint my hands.
Horns: Horns were a wire base, covered in paper mache, then model magic, sanded and painted. They are really light weight and fit under the wig.
Whew! I think that's it! Here's a reference of the character: Click me!
Costume made by me, except airbrushing.
