Mikuru Asahina / 朝比奈みくる / The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya / 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱

Mikuru Asahina from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (anime)

Variation: school uniform

Posing with Yuki and Haruhi

Inspiration: I really, really like Mikuru. A lot. I went to Japan a year after the anime aired, and had my pick of Mikuru figures and gashapon that I snatched right up. I’ve wanted to cosplay her since I saw the series. I had a few opportunities, and finally was able to team up with my friends as Haruhi and Yuki.

Costume Notes: So, this costume was bought. I did not make it. There wasn’t much time before the convention, so I ordered a uniform off eBay. I have since sold it, with the intention of making my own uniform someday. It still hasn’t happened, so these pictures are the only ones I have of me as Mikuru so far. I even bought a wig so I could stop using my real hair! Someday…
