I'm Sara and I cosplayed Kasumi Toyama along with other girls! I've also done Aya and Lisa and working on an Arisa at the moment. I hand-made this cosplay and even painted the yellow 'plaid' stripes freehand. I apologize for not getting many photos, but hopefully my other links will help show more of it off~.
I cosplayed Himari at the Hyper Japan Summer 2018 event in the UK, and I had an AMAZING time!
I made the dress myself using curtain fabric (!!?) and it was incredibly heavy but honestly totally worth it because the stripes ended up perfect, even if I did mess up the sleeves slightly (shh, just pretend the stripes are running the right way!!) :'3 I had so much fun cosplaying as her, she's my best girl and I was so happy with how it ended up; I even got recognised by a few people which absolutely made my day!
Sometimes I forget that these songs are supposed to be by high school students. I mean, not only are they all super talented, but the originals are amazing quality for something made by a bunch of kids. Could you imagine first years (15-16 years old) writing freaking HEY DAY CAPRICCIO OR PASSIONATE STARMINE?! The music is so so good and there are lyrics in both English and Japanese. I know these girls are talented but wow
