Midori (Mai HiME)

My very first cosplay, Midori from Mai HiME, made for Manifest (Melbourne Anime Festival) in 2007. I chose her because she is a kickass character, she's a redhead, and the outfit is just so damn cute. It's a pretty simple creation (but patternless, so gave me a few fitting headaches for my first time!) but I was happy with the result, especially the apron and the nametag (which was identical to the one in the series, right down to the 'Linden Baum' logo (restaurant where she works with Mai). I only wish I'd been able to be a little more 'cartoony' with the hair, but I will wear this again at some point, so I'll learn from this time.
