When leaving the Wonfes last Sunday, a few folks came up to the Mirai Itasha to take some photos of us struggling to get the 1/1 scale Mirai into the car. One person said that there was a Mirai cosplayer which I didn't believe ^^;
Then after coming back to base I see a few tweets leading me to photos of Kipi in Mirai cosplay! @.@ For folks who don't know who Kipi is then just check out this search query to see a load of her incredible work.
Was over the moon that Kipi decided to cosplay as Mirai (but miffed at the same time that I didn't get to meet her in person). Kipi writes on her blog:-
Or roughly translated as:-
Many people asked "what cosplay is that?"
This time round its Mirai Suenaga (School uniform version).
Mirai-chan is the mascot character for a site called Culture Japan.
In the past, when I would stumble onto the site I'd see a really cute illustration on the top and have always wanted to do a cosplay of her.
The illustration is really nice and the site is a real interesting read. Lets all cosplay as Mirai!
But if you think you can do a better translation then leave it in the comments and I'll contact you for some part time remote work (payment by paypal) ^^;
Kipi actually posted a snap of the uniform in the making a few days ago - material from Okadaya.
