Finally completed :D (Posted 8th May 2011)
This was one the most relaxing costume that I have ever had to make. Mainly because of the satin stitching which was so fun to do and the colours were so calm. It was a real joy to work on and I love wearing it.
The costume itself was not a challenge, although I had to make trousers - which I hate with a passion. But hopefully I will be able to re-use these trousers for a acid Tokyo Fai cosplay seeing as the boots will cover the bottom of the trousers- and I get an eye patch :D
All I need is for my boots to arrive so I can take some nice photos by some trees or something.
Satin Stitching :D (Posted 19th March 2011)
Well, I didn't realise how much fun satin stitching is! It looks really good with minimal effort (although it does eat thread so quickly!)
The sleeves are now complete and I need to start adding the design on the main body.
Getting started (Posted 19th March 2011)
All of the fabric has now been bought. Finding the right shade of blue has been a nightmare and after a visit to a few different fabric shops I found the shade that I needed. As I am typing this the fabric has been marked out and it should be ready to applique onto soon!
I only just found out that my step-mum's sewing machine can do a satin stich, so I did a happy dance ^^
