Meiko from Vocaloid
Event(s): Mechacon 2010
My favorite fact about this costume is that it was literally made almost completely out of a long skirt I bought at Goodwill for three dollars. The black fabric was left over from making Chihaya and the zipper… Oh, the zipper… The zipper was a purple open end zipper I took out of a jacket I had in my closet. I have no idea where that yellow fabric came from, but I can only assume I cut something I already owned up to get it.
I remember putting this costume on and my mom was floored. She was so mad I dared to show my stomach, not to all the people at the convention, but to my boyfriend at the time’s dad. She made me rush to the convention hotel before him and his dad could come out their room and see me.
The boy in the photos is my best friend from high school, Thomas. We made his costume as well. –Out of a shirt we got at Goodwill and some duct tape, haha. (I believe the belt I’m wearing was also his because I didn’t own a white belt of my own)
