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!

Dr. Shamal (Dr. シャマル, Dr. Shamaru?) is a crazed womanizer who hits on every cute woman he sees, though often unsuccessfully. He is said to be hiding in Japan after being charged in his own country for putting the moves on 2082 women simultaneously, one of which being a queen. He is both a skilled doctor, albeit one that refuses to treat men, and a renowned assassin known as "Trident Shamal" who was even asked to join the Varia. His primary means of combat stem from the 666 pills he carries that contain trident mosquitoes, his own breed of genetically-altered mosquitoes named for their trident-shaped stingers that infect his enemies with deadly diseases. He claims to be infected with 666 diseases that have no effect on him due to the negating effects of each disease; if he has a disease that rapidly decreases body temperature, then he has another one that increases it, and so on. Shamal also happens to be the one that introduced Hayato Gokudera to bombs when he used to work for Gokudera's family. He agrees to become Gokudera's home tutor during the Vongola Tournament, but only after Gokudera learns that protecting his own life is just as important as defending those around him. He is voiced by Toshinobu Katsuya in the anime.
