|Now finished! Photos to come soon, probably taking them on Saturday :)|
Post-JAF Comments (Posted 22nd August 2010)
Finished most of Amulet Fortune before the Japanese Arts Festival which was yesterday, but I have a couple of comments and improvements to the costume before I class it as "finished"
FIRSTLY it needs more POOF.. loooots more poof. More underskirts I think, which means more net :)
SECONDLY i need white tights.. those socks did NOTHING for making me look un-chubby and kept rolling down T_T
THIRDLY i need to make the lace-up bodice thing and get better shoes.. just so the costume is more accurate. I made ankle bows.. but they looked horrible on me.. so i'll try to sort that for next time :)
Finishing off (Posted 18th August 2010)
Just finishing off some bits now. Gotta sew the bodice to the skirt of the dress, put in the zip, hem it and make the front bow. Apart from that everything is done! Bloomers turned up this morning, very pleased with them!
Dress! (Posted 4th August 2010)
So I started the dress yesterday using my old prom dress pattern. I'm going to have to figure out how to make it more poofy at the top at some point.
Hoping to get it finished for a charity party this saturday :)
Picking it up again (Posted 28th July 2010)
So last night I was convinced to pick up Amu.Fortune again, I've kinda left it for too long. The pieces that were made are looking terrible after being in my drawer for months on end and so I rejuvenated them today..
I left this for a while since it was going to be a couple cosplay with my (now ex) boyfriend.. and after we split up I really didn't feel like I wanted to cosplay it any more. Lucky for me someone kinda forced me into doing it again n_n
Can't wait to get it done now :) <3
