Specifically I want to know if bikini tops are okay. I didn't get to wear my Mina Majikina costume last year due to some things that happened, and want to try to wear it to an event this year.
It depends on the event. Recently, quite a few are "requiring" bodystockings to be worn under "revealing" costumes. But "revealing" generally isn't clearly defined. Bikinis, bellybuttons and cleavage seem to fly... at least on hot girls.
Basement Sale: Touhou: Mokou costume, clearfiles/shitajiki, NeoRomance/Angelique artbook, etc.
