Miki Hoshii

Character: Miki Hoshii
Variation: Pink Diamond Luxury
Series: iDOLM@STER (anime and video game)

Construction Notes: Lots of Confetti Dot fabric!  The iDOLM@STER group I was a part of all coordinated on what fabric to use, so we’d all match.  The Confetti Dot is lined with broadcloth for durability and so it wouldn’t stretch.

Personal Thoughts:  Miki wasn’t my favorite idol in the beginning, but over the course of watching the iDOLM@STER anime, she really grew on me.  A lot of people don’t like her because she has a competitive moment near the end of the series which pits her against one of the other main characters.  When asked if she wants to stick together with Haruka in competing for the main role in a play, Miki disagrees, saying she’d rather give it her all.  It was kind of a bitch move. BUT, I can understand why she did it, and honestly, it showed that being an idol isn’t always daisies and rainbows, and while all of the idols are certainly supportive of eachother, the truth of the matter is they are going to be competing against one another at some point.
