Costume Information

Cost : Around £65 to date
Time Taken : oh erm ... hours!

This is to be part of a Soul Calibur group and out of all the possible options this is the one that I liked the most - luckily for a start she's got brown eyes and long dark hair - a bit like myself! =^_^=

AND! her name rhymes with mine - wooooo decision made! =^_^=

Update, 18 Jun :
Yay! I have finally! managed to start work on various parts of this costume: the arm band, headband and modesty skirts - and a heowge Scarlet Thunder =^_^=
Unfortunately, slower progress than I would like but every step helps I guess =*_*=

Update, 24 Jun :
Stitching has commenced on the above pieces of fabric (although I've encountered an error so I might end up making a new skirt - dippy me).
And Scarlet Thunder is now covered in three coats of latex. Well, you've gotta play safe!

Update, 30 Jun :
Lots of sewing to do on the above but I shall have to do it all by hand now... why?? Because the sewing machine refuses to be my friend *sigh*
But on the sunny side: boots are finished - as are gloves =^_^=
*pats herself on the back* well it's progress at least. Pix will be up as soon as I download them from camera and phone.

Update, 07 Jul :
Photos added to CI =^_^=

Update, 21 Jul :
Scarlet Thunder is almost complete, save for a bit of painting =^_^=
(now to pray it fits in my car!)
Still lots of sewing to do on the bra top and one of the skirts - if you can't find me, I'll be the one buried beneath the pile of needles and thread =>_<=

Update, 28 Jul :
Scarlet Thunder withered in the heat a few days ago (what??!?!), but with gentle persuasion and strategic prodding and poking it seems to have perked up. Fingers Xed it doesn't do it again!! So aside from a layer of lacquer it is now complete *smiles*

Also, after a delayed dawning that satin doesn't stretch (!) and consequently having to improvise on the works, Seung Mina's top is hopefully almost complete. She even has a very perky upright green collar. Most amusing.

Update, 6th Aug :
Seung Mina is complete =^___^=
Now to remember to pack every bit of her to take to AmeCon ...

Never played it! And I don't think I'd actually heard of the game until a couple of months ago - oops! *cowers into a corner*

But I'm sure I will be exposed to it soon enough, and finding out a lot about it between now and August! :-p

Ooh yay you're joining! Although it's a shame you're not doing Taki - well *I* like her. And I'm glad someone else will be donning the skimpy, we shall be semi-naked together.

Woohoo, fellow skimper! :-D
I still like Taki's red costume but I just didn't want to do Seung Mina and Taki for the same event, so Taki is still in my head as a future possibility.
Look forward to meeting you at the con! :-)
