Tsuchi: oh, you have to play it! Such a pretty game! I've not completed the game myself yet, as I only started it after having joined this group, and now the making of the cosplay takes up all the time XD But I can't wait to get back to playing it! :D

Progress on the top #2 (Posted 9th August 2011)

The top has been dyed. With a semi-ok result. I only wish the colour would've turned out a little brighter, but oh well. :)

I've also almost completed the sleeves, I only lack the red ribbon to go at the bottom.

Only major thing left to do is the skirt! :D And of course small details all over the place, but I think I'm getting there! And it's still some days left before Ayacon! 8D

Progress on the top (Posted 7th August 2011)

I bought a mannequin yesterday, so now all my sewing goes three times as fast as it used to. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!! (but I still work oh so slow compared to others..)
So to try it out, I made Nuregami's base top last night. What remains to do on it is to gradient dye it green and red. Add the ribbon that goes across the chest and get frog buttons. I'm getting somewhere!! 8D

Wig! (Posted 30th May 2011)

Wig is bought! Now for the boring, agonizing waiting for it to arrive-time...

Is it here yet?




Still nothing?



A start! (Posted 30th May 2011)

Went out fabric shopping today. So now I (hopefully) have all the fabric I need for Nuregami. All the fabric was on sale too! 8D I'm dreading the assembly though. The design should be easy enough, but with that amount of fabric and no mannequin to drape it over... gah! I remember what a pain Eowyn's dress was.. T_T
