Progress (Posted 11th September 2010)
The skirt is sewn and painted now and looks pretty good. Pleasantly surprised at how well the purple fabric paint shows up on the dark green fabric.
New Machine! New Mechanic! (Posted 9th September 2010)
I bought a sewing machine! This means I can actually finish my cosplays, woo!
:O (Posted 29th August 2010)
Eeeek! I am so screwed! I nearly finished making my Hakama for my Suki cosplay so I could start on the skirt and top for Alicia and now the sewing machine isn't working! What am I going to do!?!??!?! O_O
Wig! (Posted 14th August 2010)
I was beginning to despair of finding a suitable wig on ebay when I went to the local fabric/fancy dress shop today looking for ribbon and zips and found this one! It's surprisingly nice quality and only cost £12.50! Yay!
Work begins (Posted 27th June 2010)
Since i bought faux leather for my Suki cosplay, I'm using the left-overs to make accessories for Alicia as well. So far i have arm band things and head band and i have enough fabric to make the belt too.
