Description
For the Shugo Chara group that I am involved with for Minamicon 2010 this includes Rosestar, Yoma Grey and Ayame.
Shouldn't be too difficult as its only shorts, shirt and sleeves :) I got to start practising on the dance moves for our skit on the saturday evening of the masquerade.

UPDATE:
Already got the shoes (need white laces) looking for wig at the moment, and have purchased a short pattern so all I need now is some blue fabric and I can start working on the shorts. Need to get some fabric, socks, wig, and humpty lock...

UPDATE 2:
Finished shorts, and found white shoelaces, wig, and humpty lock :D
The socks were the hardest to find and after searching far and wide, I have finally found them except they are thin striped instead of thick and they had to come from the USA o.o

Picked up fabric for the shirt, and now the front of it is in progress. The sleeves are now completed except spade cufflinks. Next step is to make the collar for the shirt.

UPDATE 3:
Finished the shirt entirely, got the back bow attached and collar.. the suspenders are in place just need some paint to colour match them to the shirt and shorts.

Wig arrived and styled
Socks arrived
Humpty Lock arrived
Laces purchased

Hat is now completed yay!!

I love the shirt its great to wear, not too sure on the back bow as it maybe abit small, however i will be dancing in this so this should be better for me and i can easily make a bigger bow in the future if i wanted to.

Easiest bit was finding the boots as I already own them :) win for Dr Martens
Hardest bit was finding the white/blue socks O_o found some eventually bit smaller striped than the reference picture though

Just wanted to say, your skit was great. Really nice to see an original, well performed and enjoyable dance skit! :D

The music was so happy and infectious it was in my head for hours and had me bouncing up and down in my seat! :O :D

Great costumes to boot! Very cute.

Last piece of the puzzle (Posted 1st February 2010)

Hey there, been incredibly busy over the last month with uni work and being ill for at least 2 weeks... anyway back to being creative ^^ woop!

I have almost completed Amulet spade, the shirt, shorts, and sleeves are done with painted suspenders ^^ (just got attach short suspenders) Brought wig, socks and white shoe laces :) Made spade cufflinks and hat brooch too!!

The last piece is doing the hat which my friend is going to help me with.
Then its hop! skip! jump! to Minamicon or MCM in Midlands....

Drew, Drawn, Sleeves :) (Posted 13th January 2010)

Been a busy bee for the passed couple of hours, and now I have the sleeves completed except for blue spades cufflinks :) and I have the front of my shirt in progress... would of done bit more but kept screwing up the sleeves >_<
Should be done before the weekend is out woo!!
Pictures coming soon when I ask nicely for a camera or find my charger. :P

Hop, Skip, Sew... (Posted 9th January 2010)

brought alot of blue fabric yesturday and a shirt pattern which has been adapted to do the long pieces at the back, got everything cut out except for collar and the back bow part of the costume.

Now to sew everything together ^^ it shouldn't that hard to finish her off now :) Still got to find my charger for my camera though :S

Buying and Trying (Posted 5th January 2010)

Got the Humpty lock on the way, got the boots and shorts already sorted :)
The biggest thing now is the shirt with the sleeves, still cant find blue/white long socks :S

Buying the wig soon, and getting fabrics in the next month.
Going to make the spade charms for the sleeves tomorrow and make the big spade for the hat at the same time hopefully :D
