Costume Information

Cost : Too much

This wasn't completed in time for Kitacon and I doubt I ever will finish it.
This costume constricted my arms too much and my friends know I'm a derpy flailing machine.

I'd been um-ing and ar-ing over which to do first from the artbook for a good few months.
At first, I settled on the artwork with Oz and Gil where they both have feather boas.
Then I was like "Comming of Age Ceremony!" for a month or so..
And now I'm like.. Nah I wanna do this B)
So yeah, I settled on this for Kitacon III

This was worn for the Saturday of Kitacon III for the Pandora Hearts meet and my own group.

SEW FASTER! (Posted 31st March 2011)

I finished the top half of this yesterday 8D I stayed up until 2:30 doing it XD I'm not all that fond of the positioning but it'll do for now. I don't have time to be fussy D8
Everything on my To-Do list under 'low' i'm not making for Kitacon due to lack of time >< I might have the cape with me (I started it a while back) and pin it to the waistcoat but I doubt i'll wear it XD
I ran out of 7mm white ribbon and lace yesterday. I didn't want to ruin the consistancy of the thickness in ribbon (I have some 10mm and 3mm) so I'm missing some detailing. &also, I missing some ruffle and lace detailing 'cause I ran out of that too ._.
Now I just need to tighten the spats, sew the buttons onto the spats, fit the shorts and sew red satin to the shorts &that'll be it for Kita D8
When I rewear this, everything will be done c:
*taps around on the internet impatiently waiting for the end of the college day* I don't have time to be in college D8

Sewing like a mad woman. (Posted 29th March 2011)

I have until Wednesday 11pm D8
Gotta' hurry! ><

Scrap that last journal! (Posted 23rd March 2011)

Fuck this shit. -Oz Wig (Posted 23rd March 2011)

Feeling very disheartened and pissed off right now :/
I was very stupid and styled the Oz wig.
It doesn't suit me one bit and I can't bare to wear it at Kita.
I'm resorting to wearing my Sailor Uranus wig as a quick fix.
Tbh, I dnt even want to wear Oz anymore 'cause of this whole wig issue. Its really put me on a down.
Fuck it.
I want to cry ._.

Hiatus? (Posted 19th March 2011)

I've suddenly been hit with a little bit of illness. I tried to work on Oz today, but just didn't really have the strength, motivation or the willpower to sew. I'll be back to working on it in a few days when I feel better xD I will be working on it a little bit whilst I'm still ill, but theres only so much I can do (like the parts I have to handsew) but other than that, I'm a little limited.

Wig and the rest of the costume.. (Posted 15th March 2011)

Well I ordered a wig ages ago from a local seller. I went to see her last friday and she said itd be in this week :/ If it isnt in by this Friday, Im going to order the wig Ive attached here ( click it even if it has the X it will open XD ) which states that it has 3~5 day shipping. Ive chosen this wig cause the colour is similar to the one I ordered from the local shop.. Idc about the length Im confident with cutting length now haha. I cant wait around any longer for a wig that might not arrive in time == I gave the woman a deadline, saying I needed it for this friday ( I told her this MONTHS ago, as well as palced my order at the same time :/ ) and still nothing == Her wigs are lovely, though.. Just ordering through her is a pain hahaha
Ive finished the blouse 8D The way his collar sits looks rediculous on me, so Im making it sit up at the back, but down at the front. The cravat will hold it in place~ I replaced the ruffles with lace, and have just about enough lace for the cravat XD (I got the last of the lace they had in stock)
The masquerade mask doesnt cooridinate atall (and I cant wear contacts right now) soooo.. instead of green Ive gone for a black, gold, beige/white and red mask, its rly pretty c:
Luckily, I already had soem victorian styled heels &lt;33 They still fit (luckily) and theyre so nice, I think they'll look nice with the completed costume 8D
Oh Wednesday, Im buying the material for the cloak, waistcoat, sleeves, shorts and victorian boot covery thingies.. (I think thats it)
Then I gotta get to work and sewsewsewwwww~
I cant wait to get back to work again~ Ive missed sewing like my life depends on it so much ;w;

Votes; (Posted 3rd March 2011)

Started have second thoughts so I took a vote;
White; 4
Black (w/ coat): 2
Black (w/ cloak): 6
Now just gotta' decide on the cloak length XD
Also not having a bum bussle 'cause I really don't need a dat ass and they only really work ontop of skirts c':

Design & wig; (Posted 3rd March 2011)

I've explained why I've chained various things in the costume decription XD
Ugly coat is ugly 8l
But yeaaaahhh...
Also, I've ordered myself a lurvalaaaay golden blonde wig from a local shop that loves me and gives me heavy discountttt <333
It should be in not this Friday but the Friday after 8D 8D
Can't wait to get eeeet~
&I bought a new golden pocketwatch the other week, its plain on the outside so I coulddd make it like it is in the series, but really I prefer it plain ._.;
