This was essentially just a fun little semi-closet cosplay that I put together in a few weeks. But its actually turned out to be something I'm really proud of!

You can read all the details about my costume here if you want.

Here are a couple reference pics:

I know her hair is straight and not curly, but I didn't have a lot of time to wait a month for a proper wig to get here. This was the only wig that would've gotten here in time for Librari-con. But it still looks amazing!

Feel free to critique my friend Savvy's Garry cosplay too!

Well, I can't see your skirt so I don't know how accurate it is. That being said, it looks too bright compared to the reference pics. If you can dye it darker, that would help. The character's tie, shoes, and socks are all different as well. She appears to be wearing opaque, not sheer, knee highs. Red oxfords may be hard to come by, but you could paint shoes the correct color.

First thing I notices..The female character..The wig is way off..You need a straight wig not a curly one..

Next is the male character. You should (if you can) make the area at the shoulders look torn. It may not be possible so no need if you can't..But the cuff area at the wrists need to be like that too..
The thing in the male's hair..You have it like a light purple, it needs to look more black to me..

I can't help on anything that PSY said since I don't really know anything about that, but the skirt DID look too bright..

The rest looks fine though

Heres a picture of my skirt, sorry about that! Thanks for the pointers! If I ever wear the costume again I'll see if I can make the skirt and tie darker, I didn't realize how dark they were in the game! I think the shoes are fine though, color-wise.

When I got the knee-highs online it said they would be opaque but they turned out more sheer than I wanted. xD But with eBay, it's always a gamble!

I already mentioned in the OP that I knew the wig was incorrect and explained why. I tried tried to straighten it with a technique I found on here using hot water but it didn't work. And its too nice of a wig that I didn't dare try to straighten it with a straightening iron. Thanks for the other comments though!
