Progress so far (Posted 9th June 2009)
I have been really motivated on this costume and making good progress. Went on a shopping trip for material for Yuffie and Zhen Ji at the weekend I found a pair of shorts that matched the colour exactly so to save time I am using them but they are the only bought part of my costume. A cheap way of getting the jersey material was butchering tshirts I had one the perfect blue and got a black one to go underneath. I have cropped them and removed the straps taken in the sides to make them tighter. JUst need to add the straps and stitch the bottom of the blue one. I have hand sewn everything so far as the sewing machine is at the other house, it made a nice change actually. I had a good pair of sports shoes that I used to wear to Judo that have been sacrificed in the name of cosplay and turned yellow. I have begun construction on the weapon but need some more material before I can make her straps and belts. So far this has been a nice straight forward cosplay it's fairly simple compared to some of my other creations (except for the weapon) but hopefully it will be an effect costume for the Dirge group. Apologies for the quality of the images so far the batteries for my camera were at the other house as well so I used my phone.
