xD don't forget that Japanese aren't typically as tall as Westerners. My grandfather was only 5'5 and his father wasn't even 5 feet! So were someone may seem tall standing next to one person, they still may be short and the other person just shorter.
I have to agree with xShinwa on that height doesn't really matter for cosplay. Getting more accurate footwear I think is more important than being the right height.

LOL but Miyavi's pretty tall himself~
Height: 185 CM

O.o Satsuki looks shorter though.
XD but most j-rockers seem to wear platform boots anyways~

must be cause most of them are short.

@LukaxmegurinexC: I can actually see you a bit more as Jasmine because of your lips and eyes.

and @Nyappy~Ongaku: more as Hizaki because you make a good blonde/brunette and you have the shy, innocent look Hizaki has himself.

You're welcome. I haven't personally ordered from them yet (I plan to very soon), but I've heard a lot of good things about them from the Lolita/EGL community (:

Hmm, for wig from Fan+Friend they don't seem to have anything that looks like it would work for Jasmine You and they also seem a little skimpy on the 'hair.'

You'll need good full wig that has bangs that reach atleast below your chin. The wig will also have to be quite thick, or you'll have to sew wefts in, due to the massive amount of curls Jasmine has.
I've heard alot of good things from other cosplayers about the fullness and quality of Arda Wigs

Thier wigs were designed with spiking in mind since you need a really full wig for spiking.

Yeah, Ruki is a tiny guy. Convenient for me, since I'm small. XD

So... I just got my hair done (Ruki's cut was my ideal style, and my friend did a good job)..

And now I can get an accurate response..

WHOLE LOT OF IMAGES HERE
Which j-rocker do I look like?? XD
