|Planning on remaking this in the future. Way better.|
Leg warmers (Posted 25th July 2010)
So my purple leg warmers are made. i still need to get some fabric, or craft foam for the blue segments on the shoes and also the sleeves.
Oh - and finishing Lloyd. >___>
Shoes (Posted 22nd July 2010)
So I started my shoes, after having a lol at a thread about me. :D
The shoes are basically a pair of cheap slippers (YAY, comfy!) that have been covered with black lycra, same material used for the leggings and sleeves. The ... purple chap, I guess, that Sheena has on both legs is polycotton and will be attached have elastic sewn to it so it says up and also on the underside of the shoes. I need to buy some white bias binding for the edge detailing, and also find some craft foam to make faux buckles and the caps etc. on the end of the shoe.
Then I will get onto the upper sleeves.
Work continues (Posted 20th July 2010)
Made the white under shirt today out of some left over elastaine lycra fabric. Its nice and stretchy, need to take it in a little at the sides so its more clingy.
I want to try and get started on the black segments tomorrow; or this week at least.
Kimono etc. (Posted 27th June 2010)
Started mah kimono. :)
Its just polycotton so its nice and light the bow is the same material too. I used Lynleighs sailor bow tutorial to make the bow shape. I need to attach it properly to the belt, at the moment its just attached with velcro.
The kimono is pretty much done. I need to hem the bottom and add some bits to the sleeves. Need to get a cord for the middle and make the undershirt.
I'm going to wear a pair of leggings for the black pants, and will make the sleeves from black lycra... uhmm... that'll be on the agenda for tomorrow and probably fterwards when I've moved.
Material (Posted 27th June 2010)
I have pretty much everything I need to make this and will get started tonight of cutting out patterns and cutting etc.
I have black lycra for the leggings and the sleeves, liliac poly cotton for the kimono, pink poly for the bow and white cotton elastine for the undershirt.
Wig will be interesting.
I think this should be fairly easy and comfortable.
