Planned to be worn for:

POST EXPO THOUGHTS
I had some nice reactions to this cosplay :D I am really happy over how she came out and will defiantly be there for Kita. A nice confidence booster in cosplay :) Ill post photos when I find some and will try to grab someone for a photo-shoot.
Changed the event to KitaCon 10 as this will be the first event that the full version of this cosplay would be worn including the wig. Havent tried the full costume on yet but I should look far more adorable than I did at Expo ^^

1 day and a night to go (Posted 18th February 2010)
Sock glue is useful stuff!
Skirt-1 more layer of cream fabric to buy.
Ill be wearing plain black flat shoes :)
Progress-the week before expo (Posted 16th February 2010)
Top-ALMOST DONE!!! (Posted 13th February 2010)
Just need to add frills to the straps and sew the bows on then I'll be done.
The skirt needs elastic and some ribbon as the underskirt doesnt show very well so this should sort it out. Still got the bow to attach.
Im really proud of the whole thing so far :D
Due to my current money situation I wont be buying a wig. Instead I'll be using some Stargazer hair mascara :D
Progress (Posted 10th January 2010)
This is taking forever...
Socks-Just started puting the stripe onto one of them.
Top-Stripes added. Frills done but need adding. Need to add straps and bows.
Bows (Posted 4th December 2009)
Done both the bows for the top. Quite pleased with them actaully :)
Now to do the bows for the shoes, finish adding eyes and hooks onto the other bracelet, hair bow and to make the rose for the skirt. Wont be able to do much after that as need some cream fabric. Ill keep away from the skirt until then.
Skirt-backbow (Posted 12th September 2009)
No picture this time...sorry ^^;
Done the bow for the back of the skirt. Being a big one it took longer and was more of a bugger than I thought it would be. Its pinned onto the skirt on a mannequinn now and together it looked better than I expected. Im quite happy with it so yay.
Next...to either start again on the other bracelet or make the little bows for the top.
Skirt (Posted 8th September 2009)
The base of the orange overskirt is almost done. A bit more hemming to do. Afterwards I'll need to sew some cream/yellow ribbon on then attatch the bow and rose. I plan to use cotton too for the underskirt and maybe get some tulle for poofiness for added cuteness ^^
Microphone (Posted 7th September 2009)
I used a few layers of rolled paper for the shape and a shampoo bottle for sturdiness. I scrunched up some paper and added layers onto it for the rounded end. Going to keep putting paper mache over it until it becomes smooth.
Skirt and braclet progress (Posted 6th September 2009)
The bracelets are pretty much done....except that one of them turned out really sucky so I'll be remaking that one. The other one came out ok.
How they are make is for each bracelet you start with a rectangle piece of fabric (I used red polycotton). Make sure that when wrapped around your wrist it covers 4/5 of your wrist. You sew the wider side and then unfold and made sure that the seam is going down the middle. To ensure the seam stays in this position sew the ends shut then attatch elastic to one of the end. Carefully use pins to play around with the length of elastic and put the other end of elastic to the other end of the polycotton. Experiment until you are able to put un on and off nicely and that it stays on your wrist.
With another recatngular piece of polycotton I made it into a bow. Repeat the last step until you get a rectangle. It should be chubbier than the other piece so when you tie both ends of the piece together and tie it right at the centre with a really small piece of Pcotton then it should make a cute and simple bow. Sew the bow onto one side to where the elastic is so it covers all the white then use eyes and hooks on the other side of the elastic to it stays in place :)
The overskirt is done in about six pieces to ensure ruffleness. 3 pieces focus mostly on the main part but its pretty short so I added some more fabric to exntend the lengh. Thankfully she has a stripe going around the skirt so I can sew it over to hide the seam. Its pretty long right now but it hasnt been hemmed at the bottom yet.
