|Going to be breaking this out for Ayacon, probably on the Saturday and as my only costume for the entire event because I don't have the money to make anything new (plus I'm moving around the time of Aya).|
I have a new wig already so will be more accurate.
First Wear (Posted 1st May 2010)
So I decided to go to the Asahi Anime Festival in Brighton on May day. I live in Brighton, so it seemed stupid to not go to an event being held in my own home town. I was considering wearing Warrior Rikku, but when I ran around my mum's house collecting everything for it, I realised on the train I had forgotten my boots.
So Sheryl gets her first outing today. Admittedly the wig is the wrong blonde (its too blonde, and Sheryl is white/pinky blonde), the boots are also wrong and the necklace. But this is a primary outing to see how it goes. I will have the correct necklace, boots and wig for May, but for the moment, making do with what I hae to hand. :3
I already owned a perfectly good pair of shorts for this costume, so yay! :D
Boots (Posted 28th April 2010)
Whoo - won my boots on ebay - so I'm happy. :D
Thats pretty much all the bits I need together. :3
GunstarVixen is going to get some airdough to me so I can make my necklace cause its pretty impossible to find an exact replica!
Bandana (Posted 27th April 2010)
Bandana is done. Nice and easy. :3
As I said, wig ordered... and socks ordered too. I hope the wig will get here and the volcano won't cause any issues. >.>
Finished shirt (Posted 27th April 2010)
Whooo - Liiike five hours of work (pattern cutting, pattern pieces cutting, material cutting, pining and hand sewing) and I have a completed SHeryl Nome top, entirely hand sewn made of lovely poly cotton. Mhmmm... inexpensive and works very nicely. ^^
I've ordered 3 pairs of over the knee navy socks like the ones Sheryl wears (three pairs so that if one pair gets damaged I have spares, and also cause I like long socks anyway).
Additionally, my necklace might not be identical to Sheryl's... but I'm going to try my best on that!
I maaaay also get a microphone to pose with. :B
Still - easiest costume eeevvvvverrrrr~! <3
Sheryl Shirt (Posted 26th April 2010)
I started my shirt today. I don't have a sewing machine at my dad's house, so I'm hand sewing the entire sirt. .__.
Going to sew the bottom dark hem on with elastic so to create the draping effect.
Shades and Bangles (Posted 26th April 2010)
So now in progress. :3
I went out to town today, found some pretty perfect sunglasses and some pretty wooden bangles in Accessorise. They're not spot on, bu I'm taking some liberties with this as I'm only wearing it for comfort, and not going to enter it in anything.
I've been looking at wigs and think I've found one I'll be getting in the next few days.
I went to the only fabric shop here in Worthing, found some poly cotton in the near enough right shades. The choice is really minimal (lame) so if this top doesn't work I'm going to make a stop off at the Brighton Fabricland to get some other fabric.
