|This is my Sunday costume for Kitacon, yaay :D|
There's a pokemon group so hopefully I'll get it done and fit right in...
Well, I got it done for Kitacon in the end, even though I only got two pictures and missed the Pokemon group completely!
But oh well XD I'm actually now re-making, because I know where I went wrong with the dress and need to improve that. The new dress will have a much more triangular shape and will flare out appropriately. I also want to change the cuffs so they also flare slightly, and I might add scalloped edges for even more cute.
The cape was comfortable enough at Kita so I shouldn't need to change it, although I am debating whether or not to line it still, and the collar needs interfacing to stand upright as intended.
Oh, and a tail! I still need to do myself a tail to attach to the dress :)
... Wow that sounds like a lot of stuff, doesn't it XD

Cape up next! (Posted 12th March 2011)
So now the bloomers are bone, I've come up with the plans for the cape! See the attched picture~
EDIT*** The Diameter of the circle is 7in... This is useless you you guys but I need to remember it ;)
Ooops (Posted 9th March 2011)
Okay so, I decided to make my bloomers now since I'm in a crafty mood, but then realised I didn't buy enough fabric, durrr :B I was meant to buy 2 lots of 30in and I only bought one so back to the drawing board (fabric shop...) tomorrow I guess!
Slight Progress (Posted 2nd March 2011)
Well, I have been making a bit of slow headway on this costume!
Littlegeeky also linked me to an amazing tutorial she used for bloomers, and I will be doing the same~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Zfv3TqQFkg (and i'll only need 30in of fabric, whooo)
What else... Oh! I figured out how to do the cape, too, so I'm gonna pick up some lining soon and get that done, as well as that cute bow :3
Hat! (Posted 7th February 2011)
I've now decided to comission the hat of this costume from the lovely Sisceal!
Update~ (Posted 3rd February 2011)
Remember how I said I was going to buy a light pink wig for this outfit? Well, another wig I was planning to wear to the same con has arrived, and it's slightly lighter than I expected. So, I think I'll just use that wig. I admit, it's not a perfect colour match, but niether was the original one I had picked out so... I guess it doesn't make too much of a difference! ^^,
Also, despite this being an easy peasy costume, it's actually pretty low on my priority list, so Skitty fans may have to keep patiently waiting for a few weeks more. My main problem is the fleece I'm making it from, since I'm a big person I need to buy more of it and it does add up! So this costume will probably be finished around midlands-time, as that's when I next get paid~

Another note to self for this one;
Plans and Progress (Posted 27th May 2010)
Well, I was a little over eager so I started this one already :3
The dress will be of a similar shape to the one I used for my Refia costume, so I'm using that as a reference. It'll be a little longer, though, and I'll need to learn how to do sleeves! I'm hoping to pickup some T-Shirting material type stuff in the right colour, and if not some thing like heavy cotton should do...
Finally, the bloomers! Again, the same as the dress, but I've got a pair already that I can hopefully pick apart and use as a base.
