Awards : Neo Mag, Manga Entertainment Stall Fem Runner up
Time Taken : About 2weeks? Mostly done in the last 3-5 days XD

Description
Got some different Chinese patterned material that my dad brought from Hong Kong, so it won't excatly look like this at the end but almost, so almost like an alternate outfit XD

Also using my skirt I made from my DW5 cosplay for this :D

This is my first cosplay from scratch~w/ everything hand sewn~ :3

Woo finished :3 the fans took about 3days |D omg so many petals to sews, and then to sew them together and make the fans biggers since the fans my friend got me from Hong Kong were shorter but they had the extra material because they were Chinese dancing fans xD
Did so much work on them |D

The dress I had to redo already mentioned on my journal though o3o
Also find the brooches thingy for the dress XD they were earrings but we removed the earring stuff XD Weird buying like 4 pairs of those earrings XD considering I don't have my ears pierced XD till we said it's for a costume and the cashier was like oh :3
+ chains from a sewing shop xD

The boot covers my mum did with the material left over so not alot OTL;; but they looks amazing 8D

And the cape aswell :3 making the collar piece and everything~
The hat also made by my mum :3 we got clips to keep it in my hair XD

Sleeves all good~ my mum did the white detailing on the sleeve :3

My brother is in the process of making the SF2 weapons though XD


Taking Sebastian and short Ball gown Ciel with me to Midlands~
edit// had fun at Midlands~~ :D pictures for the day~ http://www.flickr.com/photos/rocksanie/sets/72157626097965754/

Journal

Getting there :3 (Posted 8th February 2011)

Yesterday went out to buy some stuff for this cosplay~ x3
Brought some big earrings that I could use for the metal/broach thingy on the dress, it's kinda weird buying earrings considering I don't have my ears pierced XD But detached off the earrings to stick onto my dress >:3
The fans are in process with the lovely help from my mum~ x3 <3
The neckpiece will be made soon, it's all cute out with the template help from my mum x3~ hehe, and she's making my boot covers they are looking so awesome, so hopefully I'll have pictures up soon as well :3 Then I'll just need to get my fringe cut n_n

Oh yeah |D (Posted 6th July 2010)

Oh yeah |D Kinda messed up my first lot of material, cut it too small heh :'c
Second time round here we go |D The other material will now turn into sleeves though! |D haha |D Oh yeah |D It's going well yeah |D
