Otakon 2011: Himiko by melvinopolis Otakon 2011: Himiko by melvinopolis
This costume has been such a trial and error process since I've never done anything like it before. I'm still not happy with it but it's getting there. Someday I'll finish it to my satisfaction, but until then, enjoy a few pictures from Otakon!

Himiko, Persona 4

I was so sad I didn't run into anyone as Rise! :( I'm going to be fixing it up a little more to wear in a couple months, so hopefully I can find a Rise then.

I can only wear the head piece for about a minute at a time so I carried it to walk around and put it on for pictures!

Still, really nice work! She must be difficult to cosplay.

Woah...this is insane! I would never imagine anyone attempting this! That headpiece looks lethal, was it difficult to wear?

It actually looks so much like Himiko too, I'm genuinely impressed!

Thank you! It was very uncomfortable to have the headpiece on. I could only wear it for about a minute or two at a time before I had to take it off again, but I'm going to make some adjustments that should make it easier and slightly more comfortable!

It's made of a lot of random materials I found in the right shapes/sizes (tupperware, golf club poles, knitting needle tips, etc.) and held on to my head with straps. It was definitely an adventure!
