Yes-My-Lord: Thank you!!! :D

From what I heard Leo is ambiguous. :3 Because (Quoted)the development team wanted to create a character that would be loved by fans regardless of gender so they made the gender of Leo ambiguous on purpose. :D

Thank you! :D

Ahh awesome 8D You'll make an adorable Alisa. :3 We should! It'll be epic ^^b

I'm hoping to get the cosplay done exactly like the pic shows - ambiguous :D (but considering I'll be binding for this is feels like I'm crossplaying a boy) :3

Sometimes it is xD; It shouldn't be though, depending on your size it shouldn't hurt at all ^^ (unforunatly though I'm pretty big so sometimes the best efforts are awkward ^^; )

Journal

If anyone said 'let's be accurate' (Posted 19th October 2010)

is required to leave the room :D

Seriously I've done whatever I could to make up for whatever time I have left till expo D: So I'm not very appy with the jacket but I'm glad it's almost finished.. Only 3 full days left and I still have the gloves and the rest of the boots to do!! XAX

8( (Posted 28th September 2010)

Ugh I hate how slow and crap this is right now.. Straps finally done and pinned in. But thanks to the machine the fabric is folded everywhere D: and knowing I need help to work out where and how to pin the straps into the darting (especially since I've done the worst binding ever and do feel light headed. I must bind to make the top fit 8D)

Had to wash wig since the style was falling out and I dont know what to think of it right now. I think I shall take this binding off and let my organs shift back in place .U.;

No blood, sweat or tears (Posted 26th September 2010)

but lots and lots of rage. orz

Stitched the zipper last week, which broke. Then bought a new one and stitched in twice (machine is still rejecting lovely fabric D; ) Lost 2 buckles so bought new ones. Keep on losing straps. )8 stitched the elactic onto the boot covers too short so I need to stretch that xD

I will make at least one accurate cosplay even if it kills me.

So far (Posted 29th July 2010)

Top is stitched together, 4 out of 5 buckles are stitched.. still need to make the straps and punch eylets in them.. then stitch onto top (by darting..) then stitch zip already pinned on then hem!

Boot covers.. fail. OTL. I have all the materials needed for them but I'm currently having trouble getting the shape >8( Peh. I shall fix it and add the 4 straps on each boot and concealed zip once the top is done 8D

Jacket needs to be started.. but not until mentioned items are finished :D just need the red fabric for this..

Gloves need starting too.. but it's the same as above xept will be hunting for a certain material too..

The necktie is already made. ..As is the necklace :) Waiting for the wig.
