Hi there :D

In the near future my friends and I plan on cosplaying vocaloid.
However, we don't want to use just any kind of nice-looking plain cotton.

I am going to be Hatsune Miku. My costume will be a mix of the "Hologram concert" version and normal.

I want to use a fabric that looks "futuristic" if that makes sense?
I do NOT want any shiny satin, super shiny vinyl, or plain cotton.

Am I being too picky? XD

For the skirt:
Any ideas on what I could use?
Do you know of any fabric that can give the appearance of smooth pleather, but thats not super shiny but stretches and pleats?

For the top:
I don't want a fabric that gets all wrinkly. I hope to be able to find something that looks similar to the black fabric, but in grey.


I'm having a hard time trying to find some good fabric.

Any suggestions would be very helpful. :D

Well, I would suggest satin or vinyl, but since you don't want them, I'm not entirely sure what else there is. Maybe pleather? I'd look at other Miku cosplayers and see which ones you like the look of, personally, and use that fabric~

haha, I just googled it. I know what it is now :D

That could work :)

I'm going to keep looking and see what I can find before I decide :D

I've noticed a lot of not-so-great Mikus lately. I really want mine to be awesome :D
