As for Fukumura, her outfit’s history is laid out in the post announcing it:
In the main poll, Fukumura garnered 0 votes and thus had the last spot in her generation. (This also meant she couldn’t take part in the public Twitter votes.)
However, her costume was contested among the six A-sides who received a single vote. (The winners, Maji Desu ka Ska! and Ai no Gundan, were contested between Zukki and Eripon.) Sukatto My Heart won among the first four while both of the remaining two received an even amount of votes. This led to a final round between the three with Sukatto My Heart and Ima Sugu Tobikomu Yuuki each tying.
I had two choices: Hold another vote on Twitter or look to the 10th Gen poll (which had all the singles as choices and had received votes before I could take out the “duplicates”). I chose the latter to prevent further tie-ups, which had Sukatto in the lead with 4 votes (66.70%) at the time of this writing.
This led to Fukuhime’s costume being chosen as Sukatto My Heart.
This one was relatively easy, mostly because of the pose and the simplicity of the outfit. This might be my favorite of the quartet (even if Mizuki is the bottom of the barrel for many fans. …Am I the only one who likes her?), because this came out great despite the rush job. Plus, I had a lot of fun with the background. There’s also the fact that wonky face and minor flaws aside, this one is where I feel relatively satisfied with what I’ve done! (Okay, Zukki’s pic is also one I’m proud of — and that was sized properly.)
