I hope it will! Finally found the fabric for the hakama so should be starting those soon. I've never seen a big ATLAB group either but I'm not sure how many of us there are going to be now since 3 of my friends have defected in favor of Naruto (traitors, lol!)

Pretty much. Just need to finish painting the fans and put the headdress together. :3
Don't know if I can finish Alicia as well though.

Nearing The End! (Posted 11th September 2010)

I finished the robe today! Never sewn sleeves on my own before so that was an interesting hour! Anyway, this means that I only have the obi-belt and the headdress to make and then I'll move on to perfecting the fit and testing my make-up. :D

(need to make some fit adjustments because I discovered the Hakama fall down when I walk around in them!)

New Machine! (Posted 7th September 2010)

I finally cracked and spent way too much money on a sewing machine! It's amazing! It also means that I have completed my Hakama. Now I only have to fix the headdress together, make the robe and buy the shoes and fans!
...and make the waist tie. Maybe I've actually still got quite a lot to do after all lol!

AAARRGHHHH (Posted 29th August 2010)

Yesterday I made my Hakama (except for the ties) and today the sewing machine is buggered!! How am I going to finish either of my cosplays if I don't have access to a sewing machine! :O

hmm (Posted 8th August 2010)

Haven't been working on my October cosplays for ages but i just did a quick calculation and i reckon i can finish this for just under £40. I don't think that's too bad considering the amount of fabric etc needed!

progress (Posted 27th June 2010)

O.k. Since i finished uni for the year and don't really feel like doing dissertation research at the moment i have being filling my vast emptiness of free time this week with random cosplay sessions. Unfortunately i don't have a sewing machine in Cambridge so I've had to do everything so far by hand and i still haven't found the right green fabrics!
However, I've still made pretty good progress. As of now i have fully completed armor, bracers and gloves! yay! XD
