Okay, well, I know about NOTHING of Vocaloid, but my boyfriend told me he'd cosplay whatever I want him to cosplay: If I cosplay Vocaloid with him.

Well, I was originally going to cosplay Hatsune Miku--until I realized I can't afford a wig and extensions for it to make it accurate. So, because it's a good deal simpler (and I have a wig that will work for it), I decided to cosplay Meiko...And I was wondering if I could get some advice...and a good/accurate reference picture (Pictures are always different for me) for her to work on, as well as what type of fabric I should use.

Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you!! CCC:

Well, I can't help much on the fabric, since I'm not all that great at deciding which types to use for what myself... But I did find a couple reference pictures..
Of course, there's the Original art picture. But I found a fanart that shows the front of her top. I'm guessing you're wanting it for the top? Since the skirt is pretty straight-forward. Meiko. In all of the pictures/cosplays that I've seen of Meiko so far, they've all had the same or similar designs to this one.
Sorry that I couldn't be of more help ^^;

Hello! I'm planning to cosplay as Kagamine Rin for either Anime North or Fan Expo, and was wondering, does anyone have any ideas on how to make the...sleeve things on her arms stay in one place? Same things with the legs.

I've been told elastic would work.

Your welcome ^^
Using your own hair is an added bonus. Saves money on buying a wig =P Yeah, I think Meiko's outfit has to be the simplest... If you need anymore pictures than I'll be happy to find some for you. 8D

Well, I already have a wig that would work for her (I originally got it to be Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran, but never did it), and I won't even need to style it. It's the perfect length...Now, to get a bunch of red fabric.

@ Xailyn- Nice. Yeah, Haruhi's hair and Meiko's hair are very much alike. =3

@... Anyone- Since I'm going to be doing Len, does anyone have any tips on how to make his sleeves puffy like they are? I can't seem to find any good patterns or useful tips that I can use..

I think if you put elastic on a normal short sleeved pattern, but add an inch to the pattern it could work. you should make a mock-up for it first though. I do alot of forum searches, so that's how I learn these things xD

I Just ordered My Miku wig!
I've got a sort of bad looking costume from online, the skirt isn't even pleated, but I'll make due until I can get a new one commissioned or make it myself.
I'll probably have it commissioned since I'm far too busy with Halloween coming up and I have to work on Teto. and Rin for my little cousin.

Yay for Vocaloid! I'm planning on doing Hatsune Miku for 2009. I got a question about her wig. How to make the pigtails? I mean, I tried doing pigtails for my Kelly wig for my Rabi en rose cosplay, but a horrible part on the back of the wig looks horrible when you put on pigtails. How to fix this?

Is there an "official" color or brand for Haku's sake bottle? I've seen green and brown bottles in art of her and never noticed anything consistent on the labels.
