Vivi - One Piece Cosplay/h1>
I had a friend who did Nami's Alabasta outfit, so I wanted to match her Nami with a Vivi cosplay. Turns out we couldn't cosplay together, but I decided to finish the costume anyway. I do plan on doing this with an Alabasta Nami someday though! Unfortunately, only one or two people recognized me at the con, but it was a nice costume anyway.
Tutorial: How to Make Vivi
Wig ($50) - Arda wig, Jeannie
Top ($10) - I made a bra cover out of dark blue knit fabric. Attached via velcro straps.
I cut out shapes from stretchy pink fabric (old jacket), and then sewed them on with a zig-zag stitch. I used pink bias tape for the edges.
Dress ($8) - I used blue lining fabric for the circle skirt, and the same blue knit fabric (from the top). I sewed the frills onto the top of the skirt.
