Officially completed! (Posted 1st August 2013)
As of today I'm finished repairing and adding extra accessories to this costume. I also upgraded the sniper rifle to a different look.
Repairing Marina (Posted 9th July 2013)
For the final Ayacon 2013, I decided to repair Marina's outfit and her rifle. I've been gathered by a fellow cosplayer a year ago to do a group. Unfortunately I only just started on it and I can't find a better black turtle neck top to replace the old one (it's summer right now, so finding turtle necks at this time is impossible).
There are so items that I've labelled as retired and grouping items but still have them on the shopping list. Just wondering how much I actually spent on this cosplay back then and now.
I have about 5 weeks to polish up, so I'm not far from finish. However, I can no longer wear contacts as I fear that my right eye will have problems again.
Fail (Posted 11th August 2010)
I managed to make the extra parts for the gloves but I didn't have enough time to add the blue/white buttons on the front or those tiny bags on her belt =/
Still incomplete! (Posted 4th June 2010)
Yes, although I wore it at the Expo, I had more things like spats, gloves and more bags to do =(
I will complete it for Amecon!
Final week and two days (Posted 19th May 2010)
Got two guns completed, 2 sniper rifles to go. We haven't got any spats, gloves or bags done xD Whee~ Stress kicking in nicely...
4 weeks left! (Posted 4th May 2010)
I haven't got ANY guns finished yet >__< I'll need to dedicate my time to do those otherwise we're all gunless!
=/ (Posted 17th March 2010)
Well, the leader who's knows what's doing is actually making all six costume by herself O__O" The others would like to help out! Alas, the Easter holiday has arrived and she'll be away for the holidays.
I've decided to do make the guns during Easter, it'll be my first time doing this!!
Wigs needed ASAP (Posted 10th March 2010)
I've bought 20 metres of cotton drill yesterday and it was a bitch to carry! Muscle pains indeed! Also got some red cotton too.
Just as we getting cracking onto making the costumes, I realise some of the wigs on Fantasy Sheep ebay are not there anymore, I will have to use my own pocket money to get these wigs >__<
Battle strategy - Fabric and wigs (Posted 17th February 2010)
We're now onto buying the fabrics and most expensively, the wigs from eBay. Oh mai!
Commence battle - Greaseproof paper (Posted 1st February 2010)
Soldiers are ready to start on measurements and draw panels on greaseproof paper. Wigs will be required for everyone, but not everyone would want to pay so much for a completely awesome wig from Fantasy Sheep.
Pattern and materials (Posted 2nd January 2010)
Currently drawing up the costume and seeing what are the possible materials can be used. So Denim or Khaki are the suitable choices to get that nice army like outfit.
Gathering Allies (Posted 17th November 2009)
Montblanc is recruiting the Gallian army from the MAGS. We currently have a few members wanting to cosplay the side characters from VC. Anyone is willing to be a Jann, Montblanc will love you forever xD
