Description
I love this costume so much *---*
I had so much fun wearing it 8D

Hat; crovat; jacket & bloomers made by Street-Angel,
Binoculars and boot covers made by meee~
Wig styled by me with much assistance with the braiding from Mother-Angel (XD)

I was shitting bricks backstage and on stage for the masquerade :'D
I mean, I was actully VERY nearly crying back stage ._.;;
Had watery eyes, very shakey hands and everything oTL -I need to sort out this stage fright, srsly.
I didn't mess up on stage *RELIEF*, but my binouclars broke c': easily fixable. So happy we got 2nd place <33
The Vesperia group was lovely too ;w; ( Thanks for not yelling at me/ being patient when I couldn't function properly backstage >>;; )
I wanna cosplay with these guys again soon ;w; <3

&I'll defo be taking Patty with me to Kitacon 8D &Poss May Expo

Only problem is that the hat hates me and kept flopping down but its fine XD I kinda' enjoy propping it back up 8D (..What?)
&Also, I want to dye the wig more golden, I don't suit platinum blonde ._.
& Need to fix the right boot cover (it broke when I kicked Jay up the bum) and binoculars c:
I think I'm gunna try and make her guns/pistols sometime 83

ohhhh baby!! I was backstage too and didnt realise you were there in the queue. I was chatting with street-angel for ages. I was last in queue btw and had a satin blue dressing gown over my cos - to protect the bustle which was gathered on a single thread! so I didnt want to risk someone accidentally catching it, cuz it would all unravell and be like a huge kite trailing behind me - but yeah thats probs why you didnt recognise my costume back stage. Awww, we were so close. I could of had my huggle. :P
Congrats on your win btw ;)

Journal

Blub (Posted 22nd June 2011)

New photos added that I forgot all about 8D;;;
These photos were taken early Saturday morning at Kitacon III

I need to fix the boot covers before I take Patty to Japan Expo (Paris)

Rewearing~ (Posted 21st February 2011)

I'll defo be taking Patty to Kitacon 8D I can't wait to wear this again!
I'll prolly change into this on Friday, but I'll defo be wearing this on Sunday (before/after I wear Tsutomu (Gokinjo Monogatari)
Can't wait 8D

x_Binouclars_x (Posted 17th February 2011)

Get a sepparate journal 8D
They look passable, but I didn't paper mache them as smoothly as I wanted XD The shape didn't turn out as I had planned either ;-; with no time to fix, they'll have to do *SIGH*

GOGOGOGOOOOO (Posted 17th February 2011)

I only have today left to finish this XD /I'm traveling Friday midday-ishhh (ttly not skipping college)
*The wig is still being rebraided Friday evening and I'll sort the front/ fringe out when I get round to wearing it ._.;
*The binouclars are almost finished. I managed to start painting the brown on last night 'cause the spray paint I got was quick dry &gt;8D So just gotta' finish that for those and loop them through the strap. ( And theeeen glue the ends to stop them from sepparating 8l )
*I've still gotta' do the left boot covers (ahaaa) but rly, that's not gunna' take very long 'cause I've already fitted the navy, so I just gotta' sew the white on and then sew onto the shoe c:
THEN DONEEEE~
So no rush rly 83 I can always sew the cover to the shoe on my train aswell 8D /'cause I'll be lonely BAAWWWW

x_ Wig _x (Posted 7th February 2011)

IS A TOTAL ----- :imhappyplz:
I cursed so much whilst braiding it 8l Hmmm..
Well, the fringe is cut and the wig is temp braided, redoing it Friday evening (/18th) with Street-Angel's help 'cause I failed so hard XD;;
I look so weird with a full fringe ._. don't like it XD *swishes fringe to the side a bit* 83 thats better~
&The wig was waaaay longer than expected.. 110cm? LIES - I haven't measured, but its atleast 120cm ><
Its quite heavy too but now that its braided it wont mess up XD (hopefully)
I'll get pics tomorrow when I look less tired *has massive bags under my eyes, no joke ._. * .. Well maybe tomorrow, I'm comming down with a cold now and I feel awful oTL
ANYWAY
Until next time when I get my butt into gear~

x_ Progressss _x (Posted 6th February 2011)

One boot cover completeee 83 ( needs some touchup and then its done and I can finish the other one XD ) -They look like wellies c':
& Also my binoculars are almost ready to be paper mache'd~ I bought a brown belt to use for the strap today too.. No idea how I'm attaching the binoculars to the strap yet but I'll figure something out XD
As for the wig, I'm collecting it tomorrow (EXCITE) and I'll be styling it asapppp~

I've put Ag/Akito on hold until I finish this, Patty is top priority right now and if I have enough time I'll make progress on Akito, but if I dnt get it done- Its not big deal.

x_ wig _x (Posted 4th February 2011)

WIG ARRVIED!
So happy.
Collecting it from Jay on Sunday c:
Laydur

x_ Wig &amp; Bootcovers _x (Posted 3rd February 2011)

This is the wig i've bought:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;item=260719920635&am... (/cba posting pic)
I decided on this wig after a positive response on my dA poll c:
Hopefully it'll arrive in time x_x (I payed for EMS afterall ;-; Expensive)
Will have to cut in the fringe (like I did on the other wig (/Can be seen in pics atm) plus cut sides into it) &amp;then braid the back.. Will prolly tie with elastic bands at the ends then tie the purple ribbon round that in a bow c:

As for boot covers, I bought some navy Klona cotton from Abakhan.. But rly it looks a tad lighter than what I'd say is navy.. *suspicious* Maybe Abakhan is lying to me? (Looks more like a blue 'Jin' colour, can't describe xD) hopefully, if it is different, it wont be too noticable x___x;;; *panic plz*

x_ There will be progress 8D _x (Posted 3rd January 2011)

I've started collecting the bits and bobs that I need for her binoculars aaand I've chosen the material for the boots c: I will have working binoculars~ sorta'.
