View Full Version : Mai costume? odd question....

09-15-2003, 11:27 PM
Okies, Well if i'm able to go to anime boston this coming year then i was thinking about doing a costume of Mai from King of fighters, Snk games, etc...The local arcade crew was planning a CvS group and asked if i wated to be in it when they found out i was going (or may be going anyways).
The thing is Mai's costume is very..um..small. Heh.
I was actually wondering what i should do w/ my breasts (the odd question). I definatly don't want to be falling out all over the place, but i also need some decent support (which is kinda hard to do considering what she wears) b/c they're well..a decent size. I also want to keep the costume in place so its not shifting around and stuff (b/c that could result in embarassment). Any suggestions as to what i could do?
This isn't a definate costume yet, but I want to find out whether i'm actually capable of doing it well in advance, just in case.
(i already plan on altering the bottom a bit so its not as revealing but i dont want to change it too much)

Here are some pictures of her costume:

You can alter it so that it's a real shirt or just have really big slits for the sleeve holes.. You can also tape yourself in.. or wear a flesh colored bra/shirt underneath if you make it totally accurate. ^_^;

Is there any certain type of tape i should use to tape myself in?
I remember using the white kind to tape up my arms and legs for a costume once and it hurt really bad coming off

my friend uses double sided clear tape....dont necessarily have to be heavy duty unless u want to go through pain to take it off :D

speaking of heavy duty..there is this brand of double sided tape that is almost foam like and sticks to almost everything...its usually used to mount stuff...3M makes it...it comes in the shape of 1inch squares...maybe 4 of them should do just fine...i think the package comes with 16 or so squares

I've used just plain scotch tape. I've also used um.. I forget what that white tape is.. n.n

You can just put skin colored fabric on the sides to cover yourself, too. I've always been too lazy to do that though. I made the sides of my newest Mai big enough so I could pull them towards each other and pin it underneath the belt.. but er, that isn't how Mai's outfit is really supposed to be made. XD

I'm making a Mai costume at the moment, and am wondering how to keep from falling out. I think I'm just gonna either tape myself into the costume. My other option is trying out those stick on flesh colored bras, I forgot where I saw them. But they do exist.
