Getting closer =) (Posted 20th February 2011)
Soo.... after my eyelet thing died on me.. I have had to use a different one and this put me off a lil if I'm honest. But I want this done asap for RinoaHeartlily's friend so they can try it out before kita =)
Finally got the eyelets done for the arm bands kindly models by the bf. He is my model for this (bless him) cos he is practically the same measurements as Rinoa's friend, which is handy hehe.
I am in search of ringlets for Yuna's belt and any belt buckles/fasteners to finish the belt then all will be practically finished.
I am working on a solution for the shorts as ther shorts I ordered, arent quite right so I am hoping to edit those =)
Just a quick update for everyone. Things have been VERY busy recently with new job and planning the move to london just before Kita.. stressful times are and are continuing to be stressful >.< grrrrr
Chi energy = raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa (Posted 18th January 2011)
Sooooo. Decided to get another move on with this as I want it finished for Rinoa's friend in February =)
Started work on the pouch and belt (help from a tutorial - http://diyfashion.about.com/od/diybagsandpurses/ss/Belt_Pouch.htm =)Its not a great tutorial but it did the job for me =) hehe
I have also completed the top after adding the hood thanks to Sarahsaiyan for letting me steal frabrinz for it =) woop! <3
The bag is not 100% yet as you can tell, I still need to add the studs to the front and start work on the belt detail.
I will be leaving this for a while until I come back from London next Sunday as I have a hectic couple of weeks ahead of me and want to concentrate 100% on those things =) February is a pretty quiet month for me, so I will have plenty of time (and hopefully money) to power through this and some of my other cosplays I have on =)
Top almost there =D (Posted 9th January 2011)
Top is FINALLY almost done =) Just need to find my fabric for the hood (stoopid moving and missing things >.< )
The Jecht symbol from foam is actually better than the one I did for my original gunner cosplay xD haha! It has been hot glued to the nylon panel and should stay pretty well. It's stayed after the number of times I have put it on and taken it off my mannequin.
I had a bit of problem with the fabric strecthing cos of it being on the mannequin for too long but a bit of adjustment and it'd fine hehe =)...
My eyelet tool thing is being bent and not cutting through the arm bands properly so will have to rething that :/ blah!
The plait needs another piece of cord to wrap round and attach so will get another piece and do that soon hopefully =)
Started on the belt too but not much to say on that at the mo =/ lol
Bracelet brainwave? (Posted 7th January 2011)
I have been racking my brains about how to make the bracelet as mine failed when I cosplayed yuna xD I decided to try run flower wire (not sure of the official name xD ) along the length of the braclet. There is a clasp to clip it around the wrist and then the wire starts after there to the end of the leatherette (is crap at explaining >.< )I felt that the wire would help keep the braclet's shape better. It looks pretty rough with one wire in so I may remake and put two pieces in so there isnt as much pressure on the middle of the fabric :/ It looks ok atm but gonna keep playing with it.. any other suggestions would be appreicated if you think I could do it a better way =)
Skirt Done! (Posted 10th December 2010)
Skirt is done! Its all lacey and lovely :D Will upload pics when I can find my camera >.< Stoopid moving!
I have now bought a vest top as a base and will be working on that shortly after Christmas :) Over Christmas I will be working on one arm band.. things xD and the bracelet :)
Skirt (Posted 6th November 2010)
Right.... now expo chaos is over I have finally started on the main parts of Yuna.. first things first... skirt! I cut out the panels from an old wite gypsy skirt and dip dyed them in the bath... poor bath.. took ages to clean :/ Not that they are dry, I just have to add the white lace trims, stitch the panels together and make the wrap/tie for the top of the skirt =)
(I forgot to take into account the tassly bits on yuna's skirt in my cosplay so I am making sure that I dont forget this time xD) Doesn't loo much at the moment but cant wait to get the skirt done. I love making these hehehe =D
