|Cost :||£20 approx (So far...)|
|APPARENTLY I HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST MY BANK ACCOUNT!? 8D *boots self*|
...but I LOVE Liam, so I dont really care x'D<33
The minute I saw this outfit... like with pretty much every one of Liam's outfits, I decided I had to cosplay it!! ...eventually... ^^'
|A feather for Oz (HOW COULD I FORGET?! D8> *flail*)||Low||Complete|
.Earrings Completed. (Posted 20th March 2011)
Ain't they just BOOTIFUL? 8D *brick'd*
...cant wait until I get my ears pierced so I can wear real ones though ;A;
.Getting There. (Posted 19th March 2011)
Jacket is done, save ironing and maybe a little tweaking after that if its needed...
Need to sculpt/paint the earrings, which I'm going to get working on tonight. Clay ahoy! 8D *brick'd*
After that I need to paint one man-dress, sew a few bits on, and hem another... Gloves need washing, contacts need ordering and shoes need painting. But hey, its getting there!
.DAT PROGRESS. (Posted 7th February 2011)
More progress is taking place~
Felt terrible today so since I couldnt be up and about, I've been working on Liam <3 Am in the process of shaping, and fitting the sleeves for his mini-man-jacket (lol. Nothing manly about ANY part of this outfit...) and re-sewing the sides of the man-dress, since I tried it on and it just wasnt fitted enough 8P MOAR DEFINITION PLZ. Progress of the new fitting is in the costume photos section ^^
Also need to get around to editing the shoes, but may leave them until I need to get my fabric paints out for other bits of the cosplay... so I can sort of get it all done in one go 8'D
...Myself and Xerx also discovered the name of the type of trousers Liam is wearing in this version.
We will never repeat them to anyone.
On pain of angry, embarassed Liam.
That is all. <3
Oh the woes of man-dresses... (Posted 2nd February 2011)
Well, I finally got shoes for the cosplay - wedge heels, so I can at least be a /little/ taller than my dear Xerx. The wedge is about four inches, so quite tall 8'D might still attempt to ninja some heel-lifts into them... *cough* Yeah. I'm fussy with height accuracy in this cosplay. But I do like them very much <3 They'll be an utter pain to wear, but THEY LOOK NUMMY *A*
The under-dress needs taking up a bit now that I can see how they look with the shoes, but really I just need to turn the hem up a bit. Also need to sort the pattern for the jacket 8P Left some of the pieces at home... OTL
Progress pics soon~
OMFG. (Posted 3rd January 2011)
...the under-dress...shirt...thing, is almost done~ ;D have created the strip of ruffles for the collar, and pinned them into place - just need to sew them on, and take in the sleeves now! (too baggy 8P)
Have ordered more grey velour/velvet for the jacket, as the old shop really isnt getting any more in that isnt 'crush', but its near enough (or completely) the same fabric, and cheaper too, so it should be fine ^^
The man-dress is on its way to completion now too... and I'm so glad I decided to make it out of duchess satin *___* Nom. Nom. NOM. <3 Its so pretty, and it works so well for that kind of clothing~
Still stuck on how to do the trousers and shoes, but have a few ideas anyway. Also hoping to get my ears pierced soon so I can get accurate earrings!
Pics soon, hopefully~
Progress Update (Posted 24th December 2010)
Have been working on this cosplay very slowly and the under-dress...thing, is now well on the way to completion. Just need to sew everything into place, add the colar, take in the sleeves and add some buttons to the cuffs.
Need more velvet for the jacket, as I didnt buy enough in the first place and bits of it went wrong 8P but can get more quite easily now its christmas - so that will hopefully be all cut out, ready for lining and sewing together soon ^^ can order it just after christmas, really.
Doubt this will look as good as I was hoping it would, but never mind... can always fix/remake bits later on, but will see how it goes from here first!
