Costume review for COSPICKY.COM: Miku Hatsune from Vocaloid
The costume and fashion company COSPICKY.COM offered me to review this Miku Hatsune cosplay costume to review. I am a big Vocaloid fan and already made a Luka Megurine cosplay many years ago.
So here is now my review!
The costume arrived in a secured packet. I got Size M. I depacked it and took a first view of costume and details.
Here are photos of the costume in detail. You see all items that got delivered with the costume. Click on the photos to see the photos in bigger detail!
So let’s break down the positive and negative things:
– I think this is the first costume I got that actually had the size it said it will have on the website. I usually really hate to get premade costumes, because they never really fit and are usually terrible big around the waist. In this case I was amazed that it was a slim-fit. It fit my body perfectly and was abolutely according to the size chart on the website.
– The fabric was really soft and non-creased when I took it out of the packet. I usually get the horror over un-ironed costumes, but it did not even need any ironing to begin with.
– The craftsmaship is really nice and it even got a good inside lining.
– The accuracy to the original is also really high.
– The product I got looks 100% the same than the product in the shop.
– At first I was a bit unhappy with the fabric choice. I would have not taken this fabric when I would have made this by myself. But after the photo shoot, I actually started to like the way it looked on photos. The satin fabric gave it a more cyber-punk-diva feeling. It is a matter of taste if you like it or not. I ended up liking it more after a while.
– Only part I was actually a bit unhappy with was the printing on the sleeves. When you compare it to the original characters reference it looked a bit sloppy. I would have wished to get the „button panel“ on Miku’s arm maybe as an extra part (f.e. out of leather) that can be put on the sleeve.
I made a photo shooting with this costume with my photographer „Captured.“
For the shoot I also bought a wig, made the headphones and hairbows by myself out of foam and get a pair of overknee leather boots that I painted with turquoise color in the edges.
So here are the photos of the complete thing ;D…
