Hello I wish to cosplay as Racing Miku 2018.

Of course, that's easier said than done. I have experience sewing what concerns me is how I would pull off adding the logos to the fabric (pleather/vinal areas specifically).

Also if anyone has any advice in general for pattern drafting or if any patterns exist that are similar to the bodice or the skirt. Or anything. I already know I'm going to do the top and bottom in two pieces. I would like to keep the sleek leather look most cosplayers are going for.
:)I will greatly appreciate the help


I also wouldn't mind flat out ordering this cosplay if anyone is aware of a reliable source selling it since it appears that most of the people cosplaying this purchased it or have access to expensive equipment.

Actually if you know anyone with a Cricut machine, they can make you vinyl decals that would work great for this. If not there are plenty on Etsy doing custom work. Not the iron on type but the outdoor heavy duty that one would make car window sticker out of, that type of vinyl would adhere beautifully to your garment vinyl top & sleeves (which aren't machine washable anyway).

Id cut the pieces, apply the decals while flat, then finish sewing.
