About a week ago I found this beautiful long dress in a consignment shop, and I thought with a little fixing it would work for a cosplay of Hatsune Miku from Magnet. I am going to make it temporarily shorter and hide the straps when I wear it to con-though I will be dancing also, so the straps also will be worn at some point. I did find a wig and contact lenses that match already, though I have not yet ordered them. I also plan on making or having someone make Luka's headphones match my Miku wig. I will be making a sash myself that looks like the one from the original dress to go around the waist. I was wondering what people's take on using this kind of dress for Magnet is. I've calculated the cost of making these things, and it will save me a lot of money, but is using this much creative license for a costume really okay? Haha ><

Also, I realize that my pictures are blurry and dark, and don't really do the color of the dress justice. What I'm worried about most though is the style. In the back view yes, that is my bra straps showing -.- they won't be when I actually go to wear the dress.
