What Did Our Customers Say?
I ordered a custom size of this cosplay (putting my exact measurements). The clothing itself is very detailed (especially that beautiful torso) and fits absolutely perfectly around my bust, torso, and waist. The main piece (the dress) feels very comfortable, and includes many of the little details on Miku's dress. I have a couple of qualms with the cosplay as it is, however.
The first is regarding the length of the dress. Miku's actual dress is pictured as being rather short (going up to about mid-thigh), which is around what I expected the length of the dress to be. However, the dress I received went all the way down to my knees and even a bit further, which I found to be highly inaccurate. I am altering the dress to make it shorter to stay truer to the character, but I can see there being some frustration if people do not know about this when they order the dress.
The second is that I found the shoulder straps to be very loose on my body (perhaps there is a fix for this?). I find that the straps are constantly falling off my shoulders and see no way to fixate them further to my shoulders.
The third is that the arm pieces are also very loose. There is an elastic attached to each of the arm pieces that I assume are meant to fit around the shoulder, but that would make the cosplay inaccurate again, as the actual Miku wears them halfway down her upper arm. Maybe I just have a small shoulder issue but these elastic bands don't stay up either even if I put them on my shoulders.
The fourth was that the musical symbol attached to the dress did not really look like the proper musical symbol, and it appears to have been hot glued to the dress. Admittedly, I will be removing the symbol and remaking it after altering the length of the dress.
Other than the above four points, I am fairly happy with the cosplay and look forward to wearing it at my next convention!
Details from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Air_characters#Misuzu_Kamio
Voiced by: Tomoko Kawakami (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)
Misuzu is the first of the three girls featured in Air that meets Yukito Kunisaki. She becomes friends with Yukito and invites him to stay over at her house. Her foster mother is Haruko Kamio who is actually her aunt as her biological mother died while she was still young and her father gave her to Haruko. She is a cheerful, slightly clumsy girl, and often mentions the pseudo-dinosauric phrase "Gao" whenever she feels troubled or is about to cry. Since a young age, Misuzu has had a great love of dinosaurs, going so far as to believe baby chicks were young dinosaurs for a time.
After several weeks of staying in Misuzu's hometown, Yukito discovers that Misuzu suffers from a mysterious illness that makes her cry whenever she thinks she has made a friend, thus explaining why she is shunned in school. Later (when she is already in love with Yukito) her condition worsens and it is revealed that she is actually the reincarnation of the last winged being, Kannabi no Mikoto, who was cursed by Buddhist monks before her death. As the soul of a winged being is too much for a normal human body to contain, Misuzu is fated to die young. Misuzu dies at the beach soon after beginning to accept and love her aunt Haruko like a true mother. Misuzu's good ending in the game is as she dies, she is successful in breaking free from Kannabi no Mikoto's curse, due to the literally life-taking efforts of Yukito and herself. It is implied that both souls are now free from their chains to the Earth. In the finale of the manga, however, Misuzu recovers after the last dream thanks to Yukito's efforts.
