I'd go for light up that way you can turn them on and off when you want to

Please pardon the quality of the photos and the lack of character makeup. >A<

The top is too big, so I'll be taking it in some. I love the skirt, though. It's so swishy~~

The dress came with a dark blue garter and rose pin to attach to the neck ribbons (not pictured), but I'll be redoing those accessories because they're the wrong color.

Has anyone tried to use liquid watercolor as a fabric dye? I'm thinking of buying a white rose and using teal liquid watercolor to dye it the shade I want. I figured it might work, considering how easily liquid watercolor sinks into fabric and how difficult it is to wash out.

I'm hoping to make progress on fujoshi Miku, too. Just have to find a silk-screener around here.
You look so cute!!! I love your wig!

I bought reflective tape in bulk and we used that
i couldn't remember the seller i got it from but here's something similar:

for the headphones lighting up, we bought some ballon lights (bought some @ walmart) and put those in the headphones
and here's a tutorial that used the same thing:

Thanks, guys!

I was finally able to find a decently-priced rose that isn't made of silk, so hopefully it'll take the ink well and I can finally make my rose pin for my neck ribbons. :'D
And, if I can find one, I may just buy a teal and black lace garter, since I'm feeling way to lazy to make one myself after spending so much time making my Yoko top by hand. xD

So I got commissioned to make some magnet headphones and have been working like a slave cutting out butterfly wings! I have a picture of them in my gallery. What do you guy think? I think they came out pretty good!

They're adorable!

I've been working on my Dark Woods Circus Miku cosplay but now I'm really starting to feel like cosplaying as her original version, too... I got a really good idea of how to make the glowing arm panels, and I really like the style of the outfit. I just won't be able to afford the wig anytime soon, I just bought wigs for 50 euros. >< I'll just wait some time and see if I'll really get to do it.

@OldestAngel, Viveeh, and Narnian

Thank you so much for the nice comments! Those wings took so much time.

I've been experimenting with wing making and have found a way that is much less time consuming but I don't think it looks as intricate and shiny and nice. On the other hand, the new method I came up with looks more plastic-y (which suits a robot) and streamline.

Which one do you like more? (and thanks for your comment Narnian! You told me your opinion before I even asked!)

Sorry for asking so many questions, but I hope to start being commissioned for these more in my local area and need feed back
