I think I'm going mad, as much as I love Cosmos in Dissidia I have no idea if I will do this cosplay justice but I'm determined to make and wear it! Must lose weight though!!

Nawww I would love to see you wearing this, you will look beautifull!

I wonder if you will wear it to other shows too, since I can't go to Kitacon. :/

@ Ranma1-2: I love a challenge! LOL I'm usually a last minute person and no doubt this will be an all nighter before Expo ^_^

@ Anime_Angel: Sweet! I'll definitely have to look out for you and say hello to you too!

@ NixieThePixie: I'll be wearing this on Saturday but I definitely want to get a photo with you on Sunday! :D

All nighters lol ..I'm trying to leave that all behind me. :)

Awww progress is looking good.

I had an idea - feel free to like totally throw it out - I was thinking about how the artwork has such tight lines at the bottom..like hobble skirts, totally impractical to walkk in, although looks good in artwork.. I wonder if it would work sewing some thin elastic inside the dress at say mid calf, so the lines would gather in at the bottom but you'd be able to actually walk in it too. Never tried this, just a thought I had about it. ^_^

Nothing like all nighters to keep the cosplay spirit alive!
Thats a great idea, I never thought of that, thank you hun! :D

Nice work on that centre detail. ;)
Watch out for those fingers ..and the table cloth! :P (I assume you are using a very sharp craft knife)

Thank you!
Yep I'm using a craft knife and don't worry I will ^_^ I've been warned not to touch the table cloth by my Mum otherwise I'm dead XD so I've got a panel of wood underneath it ;)

Can I recommend treat yourself to a cutting mat.. They are brill for cutting, they are designed to self heal after you slice into them, sharp blades don't go dull, and the knfe doesn't veer off like sometimes it can following wood grain.
Also generally they are just great as flat work surfaces to do other jobs on.

This kind of thing on eBy

but you can get them at art supply shops too.

Journal

The dress part 3 (Posted 25th May 2010)

It's all done now, after 3 weeks of cutting, tacking and sewing ^_^
The sides at the bottom have been pulled in but enough that I can walk around easily. All thats left is to put the jewellery on and gold ling at the top

The dress part 2 (Posted 6th May 2010)

Tonight myself and Vicky tacked most of the dress together, theres still a lot to do but the structure of the dress has been done ^_^

The dress part 1 (Posted 3rd May 2010)

Finally after a long time and thanks to my good friend Vicky we've started on Cosmos' dress ^_^
Vicky had leftover material which we are using to make the dress, I'm usless at reading patterns so Vicky has been pinning the patterns in place and I have been sewing them.
So far the back of the dress and top of the dress has been sewn and we'll start work on the rest in the next week including making it neat around the edges ^_^
