|Coolest moogle ever.|
Was a tricky decision between the classes (as evidenced by the fact I switched from Gunner to Thief), but it's just too cute
Want to try and get a moogle group for Auchi, anybody with me?

Not so bad (Posted 22nd November 2010)
The moogle went down really well, not a lot of pictures taken but a lot of people seemed to enjoy seeing it, I'm kicking myself for not entering the masquerade (felt so wrong sitting watching instead of being there) but on the other hand the costume wasn't really finished.
Things I need to sort out for next time (because I'd really like there to be a next time);
I'd like to redo the entire headpiece, the ears were super cute and all but there was a lot of inaccuracy with them and I'd like to remake them, I'd also like to have them attached to a headband with wire so they stand up. The bauble itself I was very happy with, I'd have to find a way to make the wire stay upright better (next time I'll attach it somehow BEFORE mid-afternoon at the con). The bandana could have done with being a little larger as well.
Facepaint. I decided to forego it because I had none that matched the ears and it would have felt strange without it, similarly I was going to wear white gloves to go with it, so next time I'll go all out rather than being sort of humanised.
Wings. I was happy with the wings, I really liked them, but I think next time I won't attach them directly to the coat, so they stand out a little stiffer. Maybe.
The coat and the top need hemming and the proper frays added.
I'll remember my damn collar, boo
And finally, I'll actually make that bloody key.
Otherwise, I was quite happy with it :D
Bit by bit (Posted 18th November 2010)
Taking a tiny break right now even though I probably shouldn't be given how much I need to do.
Con is in less than twenty four hours and I am desperately behind. I've cut out the fabric for the jacket, top and bandana and I've made the wings, which is something at least.
I still need to;
- Figure out how I'm attaching the wings
....Plus sew together my hogwarts robe and trim the jumper in red and gold ribbon, and sew the yellow ribbon onto Sweden's shirt.

Ok! I've bought everything I need! ... I think! (I hope!) so now I really really ought to start sewing, shouldn't I?
At least I've done all the shopping I need to do, that's something, right?
Plan! (Posted 4th November 2010)
Ok, so right, here's the plan...
Top - Found some white/yellow striped jersey on Ebay that's perfect.
