Equuleuscia Eleutheria's Cosplay

Romeo & Cinderella Costume Tutorial

Posted on: April 25, 2013

Konnichiwa Minna-san!

I hope you are having a lovely day ^^

You may have known from the “Done” tab above that I have cosplayed the Romeo & Cinderella Miku. That shoot had an all female crew, because I didn’t think I would feel comfortable with a male crew, especially with the rather awkward poses.

Photographer and Makeup artist: Etterorua Red
Kaito: Tesun

Anyway, this is the original PV of the song

Alternate PVs that I found.

Okay, back to topic. I hope this tutorial will serve as a useful guide for those out there who plan to cosplay the Romeo & Cinderella version of Miku.. I believe this can serve as a guide for similarly clothed characters as well as Romeo & Cinderella version of the other vocaloids, which have different colour schemes.

You will need:

  • Red Sequins
  • Black Lace
  • Dressmaking Pins
  • Nylon Thread
  • Cotton Thread
  • Sharp Sewing Needles
  • Super Glue/Cloth Glue
  • Hot Pink Long Tube Top
  • Hot Pink Underwear
  • Black Elastic Braid
  • Camisole (that you usually wear)
  • Long Ruler

Step 1: Top

Miku is wearing black laced red polka-dotted lingerine.

  • Tube top
  1. Using a ruler, place sequins (as markers) 5cm of each other using 0cm, 5cm, 10cm, 15cm etc… as a guide for row 1.
  2. Move the ruler to be below your markers (as shown in picture)
  3. Using a ruler, mark out dots 5 cm of each other using 2.5cm, 7.5cm, 12.5cm etc… as a guide for row 2.
  4. Repeat Step 1 to Step 3 until you reach the bottom of the tube.
  5. You should get your desired pattern as shown.
  6. Place cardboard inside the tube to prevent glue from seeping through and gluing your tube shut.
  7. Proceed to glue and sew them down. If your sequins are too small, glue a few together to make a larger sequin.
  8. Remember to have sequins for both front and back of your tube.
  9. Decide which side of the lace faces towards the top of the tube and which face of the lace is to be the surface where the glue is applied. (Note that left and right side of lace is slightly different in below picture)
  10. Pin the lace down with dressmaking pins to stabilise position on tube. Cut away extra lace.
  11. Place cardboard inside the tube to prevent glue from seeping through and gluing your tube shut.
  12. Glue the lace down before sewing. It will the lace easier to sew.
  13. Remember to Repeat Step 9 to Step 12 for front, back, top and bottom of tube top.
  • Spaghetti Straps
  1. To determine length of straps, measure the length of camisole straps, add 1cm to that measurement and cut elastic braid accordingly.
  2. If width of elastic braid is too small, sew 2 together using nylon thread.
  3. Secure lace onto elastic braid using dressmaking pins, make sure to leave a 1cm gap.
  4. Glue down lace before sewing lace onto elastic braid.
  5. Determine which side of lace faces the wearer and which side of lace faces away from wearer. (note in above picture that left and right side of lace is slightly different)
  6. To determine position of straps, place camisole inside the tube and note the position of the straps on the tube top using dressmaking pins.
  7. Glue elastic braids down to double confirm their position before sewing.
  8. Remember to make 2 straps, 1 each for your right and left shoulder!

Step 2: Bottom

  1. Following Step 1 to Step 8 from “Tube top”, you should get the desired pattern as shown below.
  2. following Step 9 to Step 13 from “Tube top”, apply lace as desired.

Complete!

You can use leftover lace to make a garter or use it as a prop for your photoshoot, as I did 🙂

Miku wears a white cardigan and a black pleated skirt in some of the fanart, so you may want to include that in your shoot. Also, bring many many apples! I spent half the shoot going through the apples that Tesun bought for the shoot. Haha
