Costume Information

Cost : £21.29
Time Taken : Round about Two Months

So wish me luck with this! Should be able to find all the stuff easily.
Blargh. I can't find the name of her. Ah well. :3

I've done quite a bit in a month, considering this was a last minute decision. I'm now getting really nervous I won't get this done in time because the top keeps going wrong. >.< I've never had to do a costume this quickly before seeing as I've always had them done like a month or two in advance.

Apart from a few tweeks on here, which I'll do tomorrow, it's basically finished. ^^

It shall be taking part in the Masquerade Parade on the Saturday.

So according to mortibody/summonerspilgrimmage on tumblr, this lovely lady's name is actually Judy! Which means she actually has a name that I've been looking for for ages! :333 This has literally made my day!

Thanks, someone had to do it one day. :3 Fun? Pft. xD The shorts were a size to small, the top was too short, boots kept falling down so did the red and brown arm parts. xD Hence why I'm re-doing parts.

Top Work in Progress (Posted 15th May 2011)

Right Basically, I've added the black parts and the zip, which are both attached to each other. There are slits round the side so I can fit the blue 'belt' around it (which is a piece of blue material) which I'm going to attach after sewing the whole thing together tonight. I know it's short, I didn't realize until after I put it on, but it's not as short as my first attempt. It's still pinned, hence why it doesn't look as good, but it should look better after I've sewn it together on the sewing machine.

Extra Information (Posted 8th May 2011)

Had to measure myself and the top to make sure that I'd get the right length to cut the top at. So far it's around 15/16cm, including the neck. It should be alright for the zip to be attached onto. Had to be very careful with the link down the middle that it was straight. Might cut the bottom again to make sure it's in line together.
Any questions Just as.

Sleeves (Posted 8th May 2011)

I've had to take the original sleeves off the top. I was going to use them for the collar, but that didn't work out. I've folded the edges over to get a nicer finish and for them too look smaller and seeing as in the references show that the Player doesn't really have sleeves, I'm trying to get them as hidden as possible so that it's accurate.

Top Collar (Posted 8th May 2011)

Basically I used some of the yellow material I had left over from trying to make the first one and I used that for the collar. It's two rectangular pieces of material, pinned around the collar and then together. I've had to find the top down so that I can get a nice edge and that it's not too tall. Can't fit my head through it when it's zipped up, but it just needs to be loose around my neck, but not that loose or too tight. It's currently pinned there and I'm only going to sew it when I have the zip and detailing pinned on to.

Detailing for the Top (Posted 25th April 2011)

I've basically finished that part. Which means all I need to do is make the top, get a suitable zip for it and then attach it all together. It should be finished after that! I just need to find some material for it that won't cost too much.
Getting the material for the boots tomorrow! Should go well. Then I need to find some lacey type stuff to thread through it.

Top (Posted 23rd April 2011)

Jesus Christ I HATE this top. =.= First time I made it too small, this time I've got fabric...which is kind of Orange. I bloody hope this works otherwise I'm stuffed. It's gone well so far, but I've still got quite a bit to do. Which is annoying me. Though I've had a brain wave. If I do a mock up with the orange material and get that perfect, buy some yellow material and then make it out of that it should be fine! Hopefully I'll get the material for the Boot Covers on Tuesday. I just have to remind my friend to bring it in.

Things (Posted 19th April 2011)

This costumes been coming together rather quickly from when I first started it. I still need to make the top, even though I mucked it up the first time, I need to buy the material and the zip to finish it. My friends giving me some type of Leatherette so that I can make the covers for the boots. I just hope I can get it done in time.

Updates (Posted 21st March 2011)

This costumes really coming together quite quickly.
Armwarmers: Base ones are done. I just need to add things onto the like the belts, the silver edging and stuff.
Trousers: Now ordered, just waiting for them to arrive and then I can edit them when they do.
Wig: Plaits are done. Just need to try and get the buns done sometime.

Oh yeah. Goggles are done. Swimming ones always work don't they? Just need to find them.
