|Time Taken :||One month.|
|After seeing the musical of Phoenix Wright done by Takarazuka I was determined to cosplay Phoenix at some point. Tomu's portrayal of him is just fantastic... and so adorable!!|
And I was talking to FruitBat and Minxie and found out that FruitBat was going to be doing Zuka Edgeworth at Amecon... and I mentioned that I wanted to do Phoenix at some point and we all basically jumped at the idea... XD We might even be performing a skit... *shiftyeyes*
I will be doing his work outfit/Lawyer suit: Blue Suit, White Shirt and Pink Tie. I will be wearing a wig for this one too, as due to other costumes for the event I will be using my own hair for one of those, which has to be brown. So yes, I will be styling the wig myself too... dundundun!!!! XD XD
Events Worn At:
Completed (Posted 2nd August 2010)
I am going ahead and marking this costume as completed. ^_^ The wig is drying as we speak, and the rest of the costume itself is complete too.
This is for the Sunday of Amecon, and will be worn for the omake... see you all there!!!
Suit Trousers - Finished (Posted 13th July 2010)
I can almost set this costume to completed soon... the costume itself is now finished. I finished the trousers today by sewing on the belt loops. My wig arrived too but I'm too scared to touch it at the moment, so I'm gonna wait until after my Mum and Dad's birthdays and until I've stared at pictures and screencaps enough to have a good grasp of what I'm doing, XD
I've never styled a wig before so I am so scared about doing it wrong... ^^;;
Suit Jacket (Posted 12th July 2010)
I finished it!!!! Still have the trousers to complete and the wig to style once it arrives, but I finished another item of this costume!!
And I am so proud... I had to take it up cus it was way too long... and then used the excess to make the pocket flaps (and belt loops). I should finish the trousers easily tomorrow, and hopefully the wig arrive soon too!! I want to get this costume finished darn it, XD XD
Tie Clip - Complete (Posted 10th July 2010)
I've sewed one pocket flap together. Just have the other to do before attaching them to the jacket. Then I'll sew on the belt loops onto the trousers.
I have finished the Tie Clip today... and like I said, it didn't take me long, XD Thought I might as well do it whilst there was a break on tv... XD XD
Getting There (Posted 10th July 2010)
So in the end I did end up buying a suit to use instead of hand making one, I ended up panicking about not being able to hand make one in time and I managed to find a few suits I could use. Not perfect, meaning the colour is a little darker than it should be but... It's useable.
I've had to take the trousers up though, and I still need to sew on belt loops on to the trousers. The jacket was miles too long but then it did say on the auction that the jacket was a long one, meaning that it went down past the bum on normal height people... It ended up going down to my knees... ^^;; But I've taken it up now, so it's at the right length. Just need to fix the lining at the bottom of the back a little more, sew on the pocket flaps, and then the jacket will be done. I am so tempted to embroider/paint a little PW on to the pockets, but since that's not accurate I won't. XD I'll behave.
I need to stick some gems onto the tie clip aswell, but that won't take me two minutes.
After that it's just a case of waiting for the wig to arrive (on it's way) and then styling it once it has. My first ever wig styling project... I'm more than a little nervous about it but oh well. I should be fine... I have a wig head for it so it's not like I'll be styling it with it actually on my head, XD XD
I am pleased to nearly be finished though. I'm probably about half way through now? If not more?
*fingers crossed* we get a spot in the omake, ^_^ If not, well... me and Gemma, my Edgeworth, will more than make up for it with photos!! XD XD
Pattern (Posted 15th June 2010)
I need a new icon for this costume... anyways...
After endless searching of ebay and coming up with no results... I caved and bought a pattern for making suits. Yes, I am insane. Knowing my sewing skills and the fact that this pattern is classed as 'Advanced' and 'Difficult'... this will likely kill me.
But I have no other option really. So yes, I have my pattern. Now all I need is the fabric. Hopefully once my Mum gets home on Saturday I'll be able to drag her down town so I can raid the fabric store again...
I also need to buy my wig...
The Tie (Posted 13th December 2009)
I HAS IT!!! XD XD
Had a bit of time before work this morning and as I was walking past Peacocks I noticed in the window a pink tie. I stopped dead... it was perfect... well almost perfect. The shade is probably a teeny bit too light but... I couldn't leave it there, I had to buy it. So in I went and £5 less later I came out with a pink tie in hand... well in a bag but you know what I mean. It was also a two pack so I know have an otokoyaku-ish style tie aswell... it is black with pink and grey stripes... I think. It's nice though, ^_^
So yay tie!! I just need the blue suit and tie clip now really. ^_^ I'll be uploading a pic of it either tomorrow or whenever I can get good light, XD
