I’m having another change of plans. My Kotomi cosplay fell through since I couldn’t get the wig or make the dress due to shortage of funds. I still want to cosplay her, but I can’t at the moment so I’m replacing her with Luka from Vocaloid. Luka is one of my favorite vocaloids because I love her voice and graceful style. I also think her pink hair is adorable.
I’m planning to do a Just Be Friends version with a curly wig.
I found a long curly pink wig that I can afford and should arrive before the con. I already have a white dress and black boots that I could use. I have to add a lining or two to the dress, but otherwise it’s done. I’m going for the version she wears in the balloon scene so I don’t have to get or make a wreath. I’m hoping that one of my friends can come so he can cosplay Luka’s Ex since he looks a lot like him, but I don’t know if my friend can come or not yet. If not that’s fine, but I really hope he can.
I also want to wear a silver/gray and black formal to the high society formal the con is hosting. As far as I can tell the dress would look great with the wig which would be perfect for the formal since it’s curly. I might style it a bit, but I don’t really know yet. I’ll know better if I’ll actually be cosplaying Luka for the formal once I get the wig. I got the dress from a prom dress swap. It’s really beautiful, and I like it a lot. I have a couple pairs of black heels that I could wear with it since high heels are required for the event.
There’s going to a good sized Vocaloid group at the con. So far it looks like there will be a Len, Miku, Mikou, and maybe a few others. I can’t remember the exact list unfortunately, but it’s a descent group for a small con. I’m looking forward to meeting some if not all of the group. Maybe there will even be a photoshoot which would be lots of fun.
I’m both excited and nervous about cosplaying Luka. I’m excited because I like the character for the most part, but I’m nervous since Luka is the sexy type and I am not. Nevertheless, I like her Just Be Friends version which is sweet, simple, and not over sexualized like some of her other designs. I like the character, but I don’t like all her variations.
Dresses I’m planning to use: Top and middle, Just Be Friends version dress and boots; bottom, formal version. The formal has a very beautiful silver to grey gradient, but unfortunately the lighting washes it out in the picture.
