Ok so this is gunna be a massively big thing to do more on the body thing and less on the costume itself (although i would love to win prizes for this 'un if i get it right!)

EDIT* Ok so less of a body thing now and more of a cosplay ability stretching thing... everything WILL come together by hell, highwater ,house moving or death!

And just in the nick of time! (Posted 12th August 2010)

DONE DONE DONE! OMG this took forever to actually finish. I have some stitching to do when i get to amecon tonight and to sort out my wig but other then that i am done! The bit i'm most happiest with is the butt skirt- it came out SO well! The boots look fucking epic but are a goddamn nightmare to get on and off. The under top looks gash so no prizes there as to what will happen when i wear it again ( remake for sure) and the top coat it eh. But over all im pretty happy with how its all turned out!

Now for some royal theatricals and spackery!

Sorta progress...yeah (Posted 1st August 2010)


That is how i feel about my progress and lack there of. That said i have everything i need and tbh it could get done SO quickly and easily if i got my ass in gear good and proper and now that i have less then 2 weeks ahead and a fuck tonne of time off so thursday and friday will be my boot making days and my sewing days- i have to get all the sewing sections done BEFORE this weekend 1) because i have armor (although minimal) to make and 2) because its my birthday on the monday and it'll be spent faffing around and seeing people. So yeah...

Looking back on thing having had a major cutting session last week was a good plan (not cutting myself of course HA!), it got my ass in gear and the simple process of sewing shit together won't take me long even if it is a lined jacket. The main hassle will be the armor and fiddly bits with the main jacket and under top collars which are going to be interfaced with fosshape for stability.

Many things to do and 3 days left of work- my next two weeks are going to be hectic for sure!

Progress (Posted 24th July 2010)

Butt skirt done, underwear array to be started as is everything else. The move of house has thrown everything literally into disarray so at the mo im kinda stuck picking up little bits when i have the time so this weekend (ie today and 2moro) i'm going to be finishing off the underwear and then hammering the boots to get the hard part out of the way. Here goes nothing yo!

Proper Progress 2 (Posted 17th June 2010)

Ok so the first part of the gradient dye for the underside of the butt skirt is going well! the pinky layer is one and there are only 2 more layers i need to really do:
a light lavender/purple layer then a darker blue/purple layer at the bottom. Once dry and complete i'll be cutting it out, marrying up to the top side which will have the gold detailing and pearls attached and then biasing just to finish it off properly.

Stand by for more updates as the week ends!

Proper Progress (Posted 12th June 2010)

So after much debating and budgeting i went out and bought the majority of fabric for his undertop and top coat. I've made various design sketches of how the topcoat will be constructed and the inclusion of fosshape as a positive substitute for interfacing for the larger collar piece i think will work really nicely. All this whilst listening to gaga and smothering my PSP for ref images! Look out for completed pics of the topcoat without armor in the next week or so!

Progress- of sorts (Posted 17th May 2010)

Wow 8 months since i posted this??? WOW so i have made progress if only a little. I've got fabric choices sorted (mostly) and the majority of the out fit has been designed and broken down so i know how each will work as i do it. The only issue is the boots/boot-covers. I have made one set before and they were shite. Since i have 2 months to spend on this i figure i haven't given myself enough time to do it full justice but i'm still giving it a good go!


Boom- NAKED! (Posted 10th September 2009)

Ok so this is going to be a bit of a stretch of my confidence as far as wearing nothing in public goes. A few of my friends have done it and i figure i'm just as outgoing and confident and i have been itching for a while to do this costume (or the ff9 version either or really) so i figure why the hell not! Doing this will test my skills for cosplay too as i'm gunna try and do a few things i've never tried and well if it goes tits up then i will just have to try again and again! Practice, practice, practice!
