A friend of mine was organizing a Higurashi group on a forum I frequently visited, and considering I was also in her previous group I thought it would be fun to join. I am of course also a big Higurashi fan. Rena was already taken so I decided to go for Mion instead, who was also a really cool character to cosplay.

Because I visited the convention on two days and both days had a Higurashi shoot, I decided to make both outfits of Mion. Since this one required most work, I decided to wear her school outfit on Saturday when the convention was busier and we had an extra photographer on that day.

People were very positive about this costume and I was recognized multiple times! It's fun to know how many Higurashi fans there are. The photoshoot we had was a lot of fun and we got some amazing pictures out of it. A good friend of mine was cosplaying Miyo Takano, we pretty much hung out all day. My boyfriend was cosplaying Keiichi (on Friday the entire day, and only an hour for the photoshoot on Saturday due him already having other plans). I do have the feeling we forgot to do many fun poses, so I need to re-wear this someday... ^^
