Well, if you want something more substantial under the bottom you could wear a pair of "lineless" underwear, you know the kind that keeps your panties from showing through a clingy dress? They come in different panty cuts, little shorts or hiphuggers that fit snugly, and a bunch of skintones.
Under the top I strongly recommend adhesive bra cups. They're strapless, backless, skin-tone, supportive for most bust sizes, and can be trimmed so you don't see them in that dramatic neckline or that open strip under your arm. And that way even if something shifts in an unfortunate direction you won't flash someone. ^_^' There are also ones that are an actual re-usable cup , but you may not be able to hide it under that costume.
If you are worried about the costume shifting around, there is a special skin-and-fabric-safe double-sided tape for that, I just can't remember the name...
Thanks so much!! Those are really helpful suggestions,especially the lineless undies (since the bottom half was my main concern)!

The bottom half...? Mai wears underwear. You can wear underwear too. :p I also recommend pantyhose. You can get sheer to waist pantyhose where you won't be able to tell you're wearing it.
"Underwear" is stretching it a little lol. Depending on the game its either a thong or....some other form of undergarment that shows the full moon. I like the pantyhose idea a lot....illusion of nudity (or full-moonity) :toothy:
Btw...I love that you did her original colors!! (and the Nikki is pretty sweet too!)
