Hatsune Miku APPEND

Vocaloid 2

Last Updated: 08-01-2011

I'll give a brief explanation of how I made stuff but feel free to ask questions.

Hair Clips- layers of foam covered in cheese cloth+tissue paper mache with gesso. Red strips are ribbon.
Leotard/Tie- THIS WAS SO ANNOYING!! I tried to make one from scratch: FAIL. So I bought a long sleeve leotard, cut off said sleeves, and proceeded in detailing. I put skin colored spandex in for the "opening" because spandex+cutting=doesn't look good. The tie was my mom's evil idea >:) It's curved plastic strips cut from a dog treat container and taped together with a bit of thin wire for extra support. The sewed a little "sleeve for the tie out of white spandex and then I dabbed on fabric paint at the end for a gradient effect.
Sleeves- made "clamp" pieces at the top with same method as hair clips, and glued hinges on them so open. Sleeves are actually leggings that were cut+shortened. One-finger gloves were hand made with annoyance XP Gradient is from spray fabric paint and dabbing on more by hand.
Leggings+Ankle- Cut up some stockings, sewed on blue bits (I will hem them in the future). I ran out of spray fabric paint when I did the right leg, so I had to run in walmart at 7am right before we left for Otakon! Ankle thing is foam w/ gesso then glued to styrene plastic. I cut out crypton's logo and glued it on (I felt like a prison convict with a ankle bracelet ;o; )
Belt- OH MY GOD THIS CAUSED ME SO PAIN!! TT^TT It's all foam pieces assembled separate, but all had cheese cloth+tissue paper mache over top with coats of gesso. All pieces are glued+taped to a homemade click belt. The back is a tape measurer covered in foam with a USB plug glued on the end. The side lights actually light up! (they are tap lights stuck inside). I don't have any pics that really show that...

I'm very proud of this outfit, partly because I'm one of first people who cosplay Miku APPEND! <3

EDIT: Reworking the leotard and belt because I hate both >:( I'm cutting out the skin colored fabric, closed-stitching the opening so it doesn't warp, and adding a whole new front piece (the original is too messed up to fix). Belt to come!
