General Comments:

I really liked Makoto's character. The decision to cosplay her was relatively last minute, and mostly because I wanted something more casual to wear. I'm not super happy with how it turned out, but I doubt I'm ever going to wear it again.

Costume Construction:

Shirt: I originally wanted to be lazy about this and ordered a shirt, but the shirt was super thin and an off white, so I ended up making it afterall. I'm not super happy with the shirt. I made the arm holes wider than I should have, so when I raise my arms in it, they look huge.

Vest: The vest was made out of a black cotton sateen and lined with whatever fabric I had lying around.

Skirt: The fabric was ordered off of Spoonflower (I used atashi's petite sized pattern).

Boots: The boots I actually ordered for this cosplay didn't come on time so I ended up using the boots from Sento instead.

Accessories: The tights I already owned and the bag came with the limited edition of the game.

Wig Styling:

The wig was purchased from L-email Wigs. I trimmed the bangs and the back of the wig.
