|Time Taken :||3 weeks|
|This is for Trinity Albion's next group project. We wil be members of the Empire. I have chosen Mirka Fortuna, Ion's Grandmother.|
This an unusal costume for me as I'll be in quite a bit of pink and will be wearing a dress. Very unusally femanine for me. Lol!
*Update - March 2010*
This costume will be debuting without the Empire group to begin with. It will then make another appearance when a date is set for the Empire group.

Review (Posted 20th April 2010)
Mirka was an interesting costume to wear. I felt strange wearing it as its so opposite what I would normally cosplay/wear. It was a little uncomfortable to wear as it had to be quite fitted in places.
I did like how the make-up and hair went. Not so sure about the rest of the outfit. The top needs some work as it just wasn't sitting right. Armour was okay but not my best.
I'm treating this as complete as its pretty much finished. It still has a couple of pieces to add but they are small and will be added at a later date.
Not quite ready for Minami 16 (Posted 14th April 2010)
The progress on Mirka has been very slow as the fabric is proving a pain to pin. So its looking very unlikely that she'll be complete for Minami. I'll still wear her as she is mostly done.
I'll try and get her finished for a photoshoot afterwards.
Armour :D (Posted 13th April 2010)
Now a part I am familiar with doing XD
Have now cut out and moulded all the parts. Just need to sort out the fasternings and then its ready for painting.
Skirt panel and armour design modification (Posted 12th April 2010)
Nearly done on the skirt panels. Had a slight hold up as I've run out of gold trim. Underestimated how much I would need.
I'm going to work on the armour pieces in the meantime. Due to me having two fracted ribs that healed incorrectly, I'll be modifing the breat plate slightly. I'll just have a tummy panel with no cups. The cups will dig into where the injury is so would make it extremally uncomfortable to wear. Luckerly no two Thores drawings are the same so I can get away with slight adjustments.
Head Bling finished. (Posted 1st April 2010)
Well, have just completed probarly the girliest prop ever for one of my costumes XD
The idea of wrapping gold ribbon round it to closely match the ref didn't go quite accoding to plan as the glue refused to stick the ribbon to the foamlux. Instead, it did a rather good job of sticking to me. So in the end I had to tape it down. To hide the tape I added more flowers than I planned too.
Goldern Headband of Bling (Posted 31st March 2010)
Currantly working on my headband. I brought a basic cheap headband from Claire's accessories. I then cut a piece from some of my Foamlux PVC sheeting (width 3mm). I then hot glued it to the head band. I'm now in the process of finishing it.
Note, the foamlux I use I get in a white so I can see where I've marked and then a prime spray it in black when its cut and shaped.
Finished Skirt. Now on to the tougher bits (Posted 26th March 2010)
Finish a somewhat pink and floaty skirt. Managed to rreduce the hips quite successfully without loosing the shape. I still want it to lok like I have more curves than I actually have as Mirka is quite curvy (will have to majorly pad for boobs).
The skirt was the easy part O_o
Now on to the fiddly and more complex parts, the panels and top as well as all the armour.
Skirt started (Posted 25th March 2010)
Finally made a start on the actual sewing part. I haven't sewn this much pink in a very long long time. XD
Did hit a slight snag. The pattern clearly wasn't designed for someone like me in mind, it has hips. Lol! Will fix it (takes off several inches in the hip area).
Possibly for Minamicon 16 ;) (Posted 9th February 2010)
Found some really perfect fabric for this that was really cheap (in sale) so I might be able to get this done early. Yeeeee! It will be ace to have a date for this.
Moved from May Expo 2010 (Posted 2nd November 2009)
Due to the RozenCreuz Orden group having to pull out of Oct 2009 Expo this will be moved to another event.
Not sure which event yet. I'll update once I have possible dates. I have some of the fabric already so I may just get started on her anyway.
