Costume Information

Description
Fell in love with this art work as soon as I saw it and decided its definaly one I want to do. Its not quite how I had imaged it would or how I would of liked it, but I'm rather happy with it.

This cosplay was a pain in my behind. I've learned my lesson, it’s really hard to make a detailed fanart into an actual cosplay. Especially when you only have the one bit of art that’s not even a full frontal! ><

Shortly before starting this project I realized I was kinda falling into that shinny fabric trap. I had just done Setsugetsuka and started on Imitation Black all with satins and when looking back through my list I noticed afew others. I had originally wanted to use satin for this jacket as it'd give me a really rich color and be light, but after realizing the above I decided to steer clear of it and go with a suite'ing fabric instead. Part of me wish's I had stuck with the satin idea as the color seems abit off, not as vibrant as I wanted and its soooooo heavy @_@ that bum frill is gonna kill me. But I'm sure it'll be alright on the night as they say.

MasterDarcy is going to be Ciel~ -wiggles whip- >D

Journal

Over halfway (Posted 27th June 2011)

Recently I'v been having a down with my cosplay work, nothing seems to come out the way I want it. I'm not happy with the colour purple fabric Im using. It looked fine to begin with, but now I look at and think 'oh dear'. Also I so badly mucked up the jacket pattern this time around I had to ask my aunt for some serous help >< thank god she managed to save it -feels like a fail-

Anyways small update to say the jacket is practicaly all done, just afew little bits left to do on it. Shirt is done, tho might add alittle lace to the frills but not sure atm. Waist coat is half made and the shorts are cut out. Also have made a mini top hat which I'm not very happy with (no surprise there) but as time and money are tight right now it shall have to do v_v Still a fair bit to do but its mostly the detail'ing like the lace surspenders, little bows, gems and hat feathers. Also have decieded to now put the top hat on an alice band as I was studying the art work at the weekend and only just noticed theres a black bow on the other side of his face. lol Just when I thought I had it all worked out
