being re worn! (Posted 14th March 2012)
Okay, as my Moka-san cosplay has kinda fell through as I dont have time to get a wig, (and i cant do einblick either) I've decided to bring this gorgeous baby out of the closet and re wear Raven, but this time I WONT forget the arm warmers, studded cuffs etc. lol!
I also just bought on ebay 150 eyelets for my Rikku cosplay, and as I'll have like.. nearly the whole pack left over as I'll only need 12 for Rikku I'm going to replace the ribbon loops in the back of this dress with proper eyelets so the corsetted back works better. ^_^
I think I'll feel better in this costume too as I've lost weight even since I last wore it and though I've put weight back on a bit im hopig by Kita I'll have lost it again so I wont look like a I have a teeny baby bump in the dress haha!
Stockings (Posted 7th May 2011)
I FIXED MY STOCKINGS!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!
I managed to shorten the stockings by quite a fair bit so I don't have to use my really thick knee high socks for this costume! Also finally put a popper on the choker too. ^______^
I'm now really looking forward to wearing this cosplay as I finished it ages ago and it was a bit snug but since loosing a lot more weight since december I know it will fit me a lot better!! I'm tempted to give it a try just to see XD
Arm warmers (Posted 19th January 2011)
After looking at another cosplayer's from the states costume of this, and doing ALOT of research, I found out that her thin arm warmers she wears with this dress are in fact a very dark purple, so I've got some thick-ish purple tights yesterday which I'll be editing into arm warmers.
I might do that today between going to the cinema XD
Necklace (Posted 8th January 2011)
I have decided to make the choker part out of the spare bit crushed velvet (form the sleeves I cut off of the dress). And I'm going to attempt to the bat style part of it from craft foam and paint it black, I was thinking to finish it off to use PVA Glue to use as a gloss finish.
Only thing I have to figure out how to attach the two parts together!!
Dress complete more to go! (Posted 7th January 2011)
So I've finished the dress, and now I have the necklace to somehow do (have NO idea how to make it!) and got her arm warmers to make too, the its 100% complete!! YEY!!
Dress WIP (Posted 4th January 2011)
As you can see form the photos, the dress is well on its way to being completed. I even stitched the lace onto the dress yesterday so now I'm just waiting on the ribbon to arrive and to get some hook and eyes to corset the back slightly. Then that is 100% complete! WOO! EASY COSPLAY WAS EAAAAASSSSYYYYY!!!
I'm so in love with this dress of Raven's and so eager to wear I'll be wearing it as my birthday outfit in Walt Disney World!!
UPDATE: THE BLACK RIBBON ARRIVED!!! Now to buy some hook and eyes to finish it off!
base dress (Posted 6th November 2010)
I found an absolutely gorgeous crushed velvet dress in Primark a while back for the new winter range, which will make a gorgeous dress for Raven's.
It will need to be shortened a tad- sleeves shortened ALOT to little capped sleeves, change the neck line slightly to be more squared, cut the back out and replace with ribbon. Then after alllllll that I need to add lace trim round the neck line, bottom of dress and on the edge of the sleeves!!
Then I will need make fitted dark purple arm warmers, style the wig, and et black and white striped stockings!!
