Costume Information

For the CLAMP in 3D Land group in May 2011. Looking foward to this! It's gonna be hard, but oh so worth it~


Erright, I'm somewhat startin' now! D< Waaaaay later than everyone else, but I only have a few things to make, so it shouldn't be much trouble. Still have weeeeeeks to make it too, so s'all good.

HA! Cosplay, you have been defeated! Now you go to cosplay prison!
Everything is as good as done! A little fix here and there is all it needs. WAH-HEY! I actually did it...I'm in shock. I'M COMING FOR YOU, EXPO! TEAM SKITTLES! HOO-HAH


Late update is late. I HAD SO MUCH FUN WITH TEAM SKITTLES! Srsly. Everyone was amazing, thankssomuch for being awesome! I got so many compliments, especially for my hat! xD I'm shocked at the appreciation I got for being Subaru too since one cosplays him over here! Thanks so much guys! >w<
He really should be cosplayed more, he's so sweet and adorable. KYAH! I'll definatly be cosplaying at least two more versions of him~
I had a couple hiccups with my damn trousers. They ripped at soon as I got into the car...urp. So I spent the first 20 minutes of Expo Sunday sat on a bench sewing them back up xD And they were just all together too damn long, so I frequently had to pull them up...I'll fix that for when we have our shoot. WHICH WILL HAPPEN.
The Masq went excellently! We had to basically re-work the whole thing an hour before heading to the stage, but it worked. And was amazing. Guys, we rock, 'nuff said.
I hope Team Skittles will someday return with yet another CLAMP cross-over idea~! I'll be happy to provide some ;3

To-Do List

Sketch design + sort swirlsHighComplete

Shopping List

Bias, Bondaweb and 500m thread£15.03Bought
Fabric+Lots of other stuff...I went back to the craft shop a lot£60.00Bought


That image I was talking about that didn't show (Posted 14th May 2011)

I fail at sizing images Dx

Wow, how have I not written one of these yet? (Posted 14th May 2011)

Maybe because I didn't want to, title. Mleh.

OKay, this cosplay has been a beautiful nightmare. I adore working on it, but oh my goodness. SO MUCH TRACING! AND IRONING! AND CRAP!

Since others (and my future self) might want to know my unconventional method of making the swirls, here we go. First, you need:
Tracing paper (I'm not going to get into the tracing though, it's basic)
Lite Heat&Bond
Heavy Heat&Bond
White bias
White spare fabric
The usual sewing stuff
Get your rainbow color (ie: Subaru's is blue) and put it on your white. You can bond it down if you want (I did), but it's not really necessary. Though it might make things easier...I'm not sure. Then sew your white bias border on the straight part of your rainbow color (and onto your jacket/pants/whatever you're sewing). Next, make your swirl (You're going to want a main swirl design for all the different clouds you have on one paper if possible, you'll be tracing over them a lot). So you have your trace it onto the Lite Heat&Bond, and bond it onto some white fabric (NOT your main piece, some EXTRA fabric) then cut it out. Place it on your cloud as well as you can, iron it on (two dots!) and let it sit for a few minutes. Once it's cool, sew it down. Since it's light, it's not gonna hold well on its own, so do this. This'll also hold down/reinforce your rainbow color. Next, do the exact same thing with the Heavy H&B, except don't sew it down as it's not designed to be sewn. Then let that cool and...presto! You get what I have in my image, freshly bonded/sewn/bonded again swirly!

And yay for my tassel idea working! x3 For the tassel, I just sewed it down ontop of the Lite bonded swirl while sewing the swirl down.
