NOOO WAAAYYY XD oh my Gosh thank you so much! everything was sort of a blur when we got on stage as it was my first masquerade haha but thank you so so much - I was cheering for the SC group from behind the stage when you were up!
The other two in our group will probably back me up when I say I was having a bit of a flail for most of Kitacon over your Ivy cosplay, it was magnificent :D

Journal

Progress (Posted 27th March 2012)

I've not updated CI for a fair while now but with only a couple of weeks until Kitacon I figured now was the time to.

Since my last post my wig has arrived and is ready to style, I've made my hakama and limegreenjelly and Ayame have been helping out a LOT with other things. My headpiece is almost sorted, as is my sleeve, arm bands and jacket, so thank you so much ladies!

Still to do is my crop-top, securing a pair of elbow length gloves and fully styling the wig as well as painting all my designs onto the satin. Not too long left either so I'm hoping the majority will be done within a week or so!

Photos will be uploaded when I get some outfit shots.

Let's get this show on the road (Posted 10th January 2012)

Well this cosplay was supposed to be for October Expo but my money wouldn't stretch too far .. however I'm planning to get this done for Kitacon now!
Today I will be buying my wig and pipe. I was going to style a wig that I already had and add extensions but I'm not too confident at colour matching, so I'm going to get a wig specially for the cosplay and re-style it if necessary.

I'm really glad to have limegreenjelly and Ayame helping me out on this - they'll be contributing bits and bobs so I will of course credit them.

Next week I'm hoping to go home and make a rough draft of the kimono jacket and hakama out of cheap white cotton to get an idea of what needs changing before I invest in proper (I'm guessing expensive) satin .. I'm also going to be drawing out some stencils to make the painting process a little smoother.
