|Hopefully I can knock this costume up in time with relative ease, and relatively cheaply too.|
SELLING THIS COSTUME (Posted 18th May 2012)
I'm putting this costume up for sale, as Im in desperate need of money to pay off my holiday costs.
It will include:
i'm keeping the skirt as I may need it for another costume. If I dont need the skirt then I will include it- will let you know.
ASKING: £25 + postage postage could possibly be another £5 due to weight of shoes. I can bring to EXPO or LFCC as will be attending those events and it will save you on postage costs ^_^
Shirt is a size 10 if I'm right in remembering but it is rather generous so could fit a slim size 12 easily.
SHOEEEESS!!! (Posted 18th October 2010)
I found shoes!!!!! So I don't need to panic about this costume anymore, coz I finally say IT'S COMPLETE!!!
Dye job = annoyance!!! (Posted 12th October 2010)
So I've been tea dying the shirt over the last week, and I;ve done it twice and it is STILL really patchy in areas and I'm really unhappy with the result, the shade of colour is PERFECT, so i don't want to re dye it as it will end up too dark!
Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to get rid of the really light patches on the main part of the shirt and on the sleeves??
I dont want to say "I wont do Mai" as well, I'm looking forward to becoming her and I've spent money on getting this done. So I'm pretty much clueless on what to do.
Wig finally bought (Posted 19th September 2010)
For the last 2-3 weeks I've been deliberating over which wig to buy for Mai, as her hair cut seems to change ever so slightly from pic to pic that I've seen and have as my ref pics.
I've been really picky over which one to buy especially as at the moment I cant spend loads of a wig for her (as I have yet to buy a black one for Kayako and body paint).
But I finally one of decent quality one for £8 so hopefully it will be as good when it arrives, as it does in the pics.
Base shirt bought (Posted 17th September 2010)
I got into Primark yesterday and managed to get a base white shirt for Mai.
All I gotta do now is add the black sailor thing onto the shirt and tea dye the shirt to make it cream.
Then it's a case of getting a wig and doing the white trim on the black bit and getting some very wide red ribbon to make the bow at the front of the shirt!
Luckily, I have spare knee high socks from my Moka cosplay and I think I still have the loafer shoes from that cosplay too which I can use for this one
