Mami Tomoe - Make A Wish by Flaming-Goddess Mami Tomoe - Make A Wish by Flaming-Goddess
Mami Tomoe - Puella Magi Madoka Magica
(I'm entering this cosplay into ACParadise's cosplay contest for Mami, and I would super duper appreciate it if you would vote for me. Link will be posted when it begins.)
This is my favorite costume. No exceptions. I am so proud of all the work that went into this cosplay, and Mami is best Meguca. Being a part of a Madoka group with the amazing ~SkylitEyed and Tara was so much fun, especially for Otakon (although the heat was not... I'm looking forward to wearing this in the fall when it isn't quite as hot).
For this photoshoot, we lucked out and found this amazing courtyard with witch labyrinth-y stuff and an awesome fountain. And of course, the absolutely stupendous =xinstrumental took pictures, and I am so happy with them.
In this picture specifically, you can see the beautiful Soul Gem that ~SkylitEyed and Tara made me.

It is a very clean and well designed cosplay of Mami Tomoe from Puella Magi Madoka Magica. You can tell that you took your time and researched her before making this cosplay. I also like how the background has been muted so that the cosplay 'pops' out at you.

It is interesting how you are holding the Soul Gem as if you may be offering it as a gift. It is a very playful and kawaii how you are just smiling and looking at us while holding it.

The only 'bad' thing I can say is about your position on the bench. We tend to always look the the right side of picture normally. Shifting over to the right side may have been a better choice. Because of this, our eyes tend to wonder to the right side and go down the path away from you. You don't want your viewers to wonder from the subject.

Best of luck on the contest!

Ahhh!!! You look lovely and wonderful!

There's just one thing I'll nitpick though and that's they eyes being under lit. It would make the shot stand out more.
Also, is that fraying or stray wig hairs on the edge of your collar?

the costume is awesome, you look great in it and the location makes the shot even cooler. it almost looks like your in a snowy oasis secret forest, but that can't be snow right? :O

Are you going to bring this cosplay to Ohayocon next year? I sure would love to see it. And at any cosplay contest, you will most likely get my vote. You do it right...no wait...you do it PERFECTLY every time!

I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing her at Ohayo. And Sky and I have been thinking about it. We just haven't decided which con we want to enter them in, since it'll be our first time. And thank you! :D

I'm kind of at a disadvantage since this is one of the few animes recently that I never watched (granted, I started to watch it last night but downloaded a LQ and stopped to watch HQ later), but pulling up a picture, as much as I wanna be anal, I don't see anything worth criticizing. The outfit looks identical a real world version, the background is very somber and bland, which compliments the color and tone of both the show and outfit, and you have the same characteristics as her, from what I've seen in clips.

I'd have to say this is one of your top outfits, and top portraits of the character

Again, thank you! I was pretty obsessive about getting this one as accurate as possible. I just love Mami so damn much. And watch it. Seriously. It's my favorite series to date.

Unfortunately, it's been impossible to avoid spoilers for the show by now. I'm about 4 episodes in, I watch one episode of that, then three other episodes from various series while at the gym to pass the time.

Daww, thanks! And they ended up pushing back the deadline to the 31st, so I still don't have a link or anything XD. And I think you have to, but it's a pretty laidback website (and free, thankfully). I'd super duper appreciate it if you did.
