Kotori Minami :
Photographer : Special Thanks To Helpers : Ligen, Erika====================================
Soooo, this is my 2nd costume from Love Live featuring Kotori . I was really worried when I decide to cosplay her as her hair is really hard to style, from the hair at the side which was signature to all Love Live girls, to that tuff on her head which looks like a bird nest. Many thanks to Erika for lending me the wig, and many thanks to Ligen (as usual), for his help with styling and helping out that day.
The sun was pretty merciless that day and I got tanned. ( i dont really get tanned or have my skin tone turn darker) Had a star shaped 'tattoo' for a few days before it faded off. xD
Also, 1st and last time making the whole costume with pvc. I couldnt resist it because I wanted the cheerleader costume to be sparkley and bright, just like the high spirited cheerleaders that we always see. I forgot about how stiff pvc can be and as a result,
almost killed me , as the costume was so sparkley that it was hard to photograph the details as well as the costume not being flexible enough. Q_Q I had fun with the sparkles though, and it was quite interesting trying to create some form of gradient for the skirt~ learnt a few things through this costume too~
