FuyuCon 2009

4th October 2009: 04/09/2009 - Blouse Wahey, did more work. These ruffles and little details are driving me insane though. But at least I get to gun fabric through the machine rather than endlessly painting little squiggles on a 3m long skirt. So I'm not going to complain as much x'D

I need to do more ruffles on the front and then that's it. The collar isn't accurate - I may change it depending on how I'm feeling. But if that's the case I'm going to need a trip to Fine Fabrics for some black cotton because all I have is polycotton. I'd rather use a heavyweight fabric rather than have to interface it, because I'm lazy like that =P

Time Taken - 2hrs? Lost track! (Ouran was distracting me lolol)

P.S. It looks way better on me than it does on the floor X_x; But I cannot be bothered to get changed for it is freezing! Not to mention my hair is still wet from my shower and I do not want to put it up in pigtails =P

3rd October 2009: 03/10/2009 - Skirt and blouse It's a start!

The black skirt was taken from my Tomoyo cosplay - it was a black pleated skirt from polycotton so it wasn't really proper pleats. The checkered skirt is also polycotton and made the same way as a pleated skirt. Again, due to its lightness it doesn't really give proper pleats - it worked for this costume though.

The white detailing on the black skirt were what took away most of my time away. I could have gone for the pretty/impressive method of embroidering it all. But no I went for the lazy/unimpressive method of painting it with acrylic paint, just because I had loads left over from GCSE Art! While it's not as impressive as embroidery it still looks good in my opinion, I did lose a bit of my sanity though.

The checkered skirt is actually sewn together with the black skirt.

I decided to make a start on the blouse too. I used some leftover polycotton to make the ruffles at the bottom of her blouse. It's a different shade of black to the actual blouse but it will do - I'm not going to nitpick about a casual costume. If it shows up in photos then photoshop will be done LOLL.
I'll modify the rest of the blouse when I can be bothered - but it's nice to have a before and after image!

Time Taken - 6hrs
Cost - Nothing!

Dear me I look scary in my progress photo lolol~
