Another - Misaki Mei cosplay

Hello, I am new here and this is my first cosplay I have ever done.

I absolutely fell in love with the anime "Another and decided to dress as Misaki Mei. Since this is my first time cosplaying, I wanted some feedback and tips.

In the pictures, I do not have the wig, shoes, socks, or tie yet.
The vest is a little off, I know. Her vest comes up farther and is more rounded, whereas mine is pointed. In addition, her vest has two rows of gold buttons. Mine did not-- it has black ones down the center---which are still there. I just sewed on more gold buttons...

I bought the skirt from a company who makes school outfits. The shirt, vest, jacket, and shoes(which are not in the picture) I got at goodwill/savers/consignment shops. I made the eye patch.

Anyway-- this is the costume so far.

For a first attempt, it not bad. I'd have done the buttons different, but that is me.

I think this really good for a first cosplay!
Just three things:
1.I see that in both she is wearing a red slighlty long bow "tie" thing.Its pretty easy to get it at your local fabric store,just get the right shade of red and a large enough ribbon.
2.As OroroMonroe said, i would have replaced the black buttons with translucent ones,so they arent that visible,as for the gold buttons,they seem accurate.
3.In the Second Reference picture,she has a blue ribbon trim on the arm cutoffs.I reccomend sewing some on,to give the sleeves a more clean cut look to them.

In the End,I think your cosplay is pretty accurate considering it is your first.
Good Luck and happy cosplaying~ <3
