|My favourite of Amu's Chara-naris.|
It looked like such a challenge to do and so obviously i had to have a go!
Will be part of a Shugo Chara group for May Expo. ^_^
Watch out for the huge group of us dancing out the front. XD
*does the Shugo Shugo dance*
Complete apart from the wig which still needs to arrive and be styled. but other than that i'm done! ^_^ yay!!!!!!
Ready for Expo! ^_^
I tried it all on this morning and tested it out (ie: i danced around in it) and i'm happy to say it stood up to the test. XD
Expo Verdict: oh dear. this cosplay. so many things went wrong. the hedset refused to stay on, my legwarmers kept falling down and i had a huge problem with my bra showing. apprently it matters which on i wore. i didn't want to wear my balck one because it would have shown through but my white one peeked out the top and gave me massive cleavage. and double sided tape didn't work. so much for Amu being 10 or 11 huh? i went for a Sexy Amu that day.

Wiggy (Posted 25th April 2009)
My wig arrived this morning!
i think i'm going to have to do a tutorial on how to style a wig into high pig-tails.
So much great progress! (Posted 9th April 2009)
I'm really happy with how this is going!
there are a few things i've decded to amend. it's hassle but i'll feel much better about the entire costume if i do them. and as i have time, i can take as long as i need.
the collar needs to be lengthened as it's too short for how deep the neck line goes.
I was looking through fan translated manga of Shugo Chara today and found a decent picture of Amu's boots.
i'll probably start fiddling tonight when i get bored. ^_^
Next week i get paid so i'll be shooting off to Fabric Land to buy the fabric and also probably get the fabric i need for my Kusumi Koharu Cosplay as that also needs alot of time and careful sewing. ^_^V
Step 2: (Posted 29th January 2009)
Tried fiddling around with patterns last night. but because i've been working and stressing over my uni interview (I GOT IN!!! WHOO!!!!) my brain had turned to mush and i managed to get thetop section of the dress figured out before i had to take a bath to relax. XD
In the beginning... (Posted 22nd November 2008)
