A message from meguka-meduka


I was wondering since I'm thinking about cosplaying Mami Tomoe from Puella Magi, how I would go about making the costume (I'm a newb at sewing) and where to get a pre-styled wig, and what to do about those boots omg (sorry for all the questions, I'm just kinda stuck :u)

Heeeere we go. This is my general Tomoe Mami tag, which should have just about “everything”, but you may also like these particular posts:

 Boots; the base boots I used are from a seller that doesn’t exist anymore but searching for “blonde” cowboy boots tends to work.

Shirt Pattern 

Thigh highs; Unfortunately the fabric I used is no longer offered by the seller I used, and I have not been able to find a replacement. You might have to do some digging here.

Mami’s Rifle tag and Rifle Pattern 

Installing Horsehair: intensely useful for the skirt.

Our fabric choices

Buckles

Difficulties? A post where I talk about what I found difficult about working on different Madoka costumes.

For pre-styled wigs I suggest commissioning (I think this is one thing that Christine could commission, but she’ll have to weigh in on that) or going to someplace like AliExpress or Ebay, which offer the same pre styled ones that any cosplay sale website would.

Commission information will be coming… eventually? Haha. I think Christine wants to do some fine-tuning on the colours (particularly Homura and Sayaka), but I thought I would post these pictures of our soul gems. They are very much the test run –– I imagine there will be pictures of the second run later.

As always, you can keep on top of soul gem information on our “Christine builds all the soul gems" tag.

Zandra Murray took some hilarious and awesome outtakes of us at the Saturday Madoka shoot and they had to be shown off.

I’m not sure who anyone else is, so feel free to let me know or just pass along if you know anyone  you see. Additionally, if you see yourself (or a friend), I may have other pictures; feel free to ask!

Anime North Madoka Photoshoot Day 2! I was one of the Kyoukos. c:

So many great, gorgeous costumes at this shoot.

From our group: Madoka hugging Homura (Katherine and Christine) in that picture. (Cutest damn thing ever.) Emmy and Maya as Sayaka and Kyoko holding hands, and Jenn as Mami holding her gun in the air like a crazy person. 

Two finished magical girl costumes.
