Costume Information

What a fantastic character! I fell in love with her, and her outfit - So I just had to Cosplay her!

REALLY excited about this Cosplay - Looking forward to wearing it!

I may roll this out again for the October Expo - Hopefully with a staff and perhaps replace the fabric with some that bit darker.

So Many Things, So Nearly Complete, But Not Quite (Posted 13th April 2010)

Sari Fabric- 60% - Perhaps a little too light, however there seems to be no middle ground, you get light blue or dark blue, nothing in between. Cut and sewn to the right size, just need to add trim, fold, iron and it's done!

Gold Trim - 100% Complete- All cut and sewn to the silver trim.

Pattern Trim - 50% - All cut and sewn to gold trim. Still need to iron on the design to one or two strips (I have realised I don't actually need to do one bit because you'll never even see it >.< ) One strip already sewn to the sari - two more to go.

Boots - 90% Complete - I need to order some silver studs to go round the top - Have cunningly cut up some socks to make them more comfy.

Beaded Necklace - 100% Complete - May still varnish, but don't need too.

Crystal Necklace - 100% Complete - All done, didn't like this at first but now I've painted in all the details ect I'm pretty pleased with it!

Earings - 100% Complete - All done, look so much better painted. Using magnets as the clips.

Fur Tails - 100% Complete - All done - Need to make and paint the rings to add them to belt though.

Main Belt - Need to get the correct fabric for this somehow - Have Large buckle already, maybe too big, need to sand in the details and order other 4 buckles. Staff holder thingy, already made, needs light strips and buckles adding.

Thin Belt - 80% - Belt bought (Yah for Primark bargains!) need to make loops for tails to hang from.

Will I get it done? Oh I really hope so! Though really I've only got 1 free week left to complete it in... But I,ve got a real move on so fingers crossed!

Sari - Fabric (Posted 21st January 2010)

I have so many samples of fabric I found and thought would be perfect for her sari, all of which turned out to be a completely different colour than the picture...

Currently I am toying with the idea of using some cornflower blue silk dupion I have spotted, it looks the perfect colour, (Need to see a sample yet though X3) and the perfect weave and sheen - But, being silk, it's more than a little pricey... Need to figure out how to use as little as possible.

Here is a picture of it.
