I didn't intend to put this as a separate costume, but as I had to make it from scratch, I thought it deserved its own page. XD I was originally going to buy the bikini for a little photoshoot at the beach, but the ones on eBay were either super expensive or for auction in the middle of the night, and I didn't know striped bikinis were so extremely rare, I ended up not finding even one in all the shops I went to. I still really wanted to have Miku's bikini because I think it's just so cute, so I bought a sundress that had the perfect fabric, and made it from that.
I mounted the top on one of my old bikini tops because I had no material for a proper lining, the ribbon, and the closure. The bottom I did make as a completely separate piece with a lining, and that's when I was already nearly out of fabric. The top is missing the golden detail, because I lacked the materials to do it. I didn't even have access to my sewing machine so this was completely hand stitched. It took a couple of hours of work and I think it turned out really cute!
I would have worn the square hair pieces for the shoot but I didn't take them to the beach with me. The wig is originally for my Sweet Devil cosplay (that will be finished before December) but I think I'm going to make some of Miku's other outfits, too. I've just grown to like the character thanks to all the awesome songs and creative costume designs. This outfit appears in the Project Diva game.
