Hatsune Miku (Sweet Devil)
Last Updated: 02-09-2013
I decided to cosplay the illustration of Sweet Devil shortly after hearing the song for the first time. It has a really catchy beat and it's just so cool I couldn't resist. This is my tribute to the awesome producer, I hope I did a good job. The song is made by Hachiouji-P aka 8#Prince, and the illustration by Yuna. You can listen to it here:
The costume didn't seem too complicated so I decided to add a little something, a light-up headset and microphone. The mic is my own design inspired by the source.
I started on the costume long ago (over a year) but didn't work on it again until the last month before the con. It took around a month to finish, not counting breaks. All in all it wasn't difficult, but I got to try some new techniques, and to do my first more complicated light project... So it was quite exciting. :D
A description on how I made it will be shared on my Patreon page.
I wore this to Expocomic 2012 in Madrid on Saturday and Sunday, and took part in the cosplay contest. Didn't get lucky (I lost to a simple lab coat XD), and I definitely learned it's hard to dance with madly trembling limbs. It didn't help that the doors were open and it was winding inside. Refreshing costume for December. DX I felt like my legs would collapse at any moment. I could've done so much better.
