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. I'm not happy with the wig and plan on styling it better for Otakon.



Whew! I think that's it! Here's a reference of the character: Click me!

Costume made by me, except airbrushing.

Wow, that is a fantastic idea, using stockings! I recently attempted to cosplay Q (I'm still pretty new to cosplaying, and so far it's been a trail and error thing), and body paint did not work for her legs. Your cosplay is lovely, I adore the horns and the ruffles are so well done! <3

How on earth did those horns stay on? Did you use latex to attach them? Dx

You look perfect, your body and face shape lend themselves well to this character. Love all the ruffles, and the tights are awesome. Such a clever idea.

im confused.... you said the top was a full bodice cut down.... does this mean you went and found a sleeveless top and cut it down to the right size, or that there is nude cloth over the top?

this outfit looks SERIOUSLY amazing. at first i thought you painted your legs. doing something similar for your gloves would be real nice. :3 maybe instead of permanently attaching claws to the tows, you could use a double sided type sticky tape to attatch nails after you put on the stockings, this way you can take them on and off as you please.

those horns are pretty dam awesome too. o.o

all in all, i am largely displeased i didnt get a chance to see you there. =( you look absolutely fantastic once again! :3

I guess I should explain better. I made a muslin pattern for a bodice, then cut it down so that it only covered my boobs. That was instead of just making a strip of fabric work, it's an 8 piece structure.

I was thinking about tape, I will probably go with that! Thank you!

=O an 8 piece structure? is that including the frills? regardless, it turned out quite well! did you have any slipping problems? I think i wouldve use double sided sticky tape again just for extra measure. XD mm, what kinda of fabric was the red though? was it a stretchy type of knit?
