|Worn to KitaCon 4 and May Expo 2012!|
The first female Tales character I cosplayed.. I couldn't resist though! And Tokunaga is super cute too :]
Her dress is different in a ton of references, but I tried to make her accurate. That and dat cape, ugh, the applique took forever but I think it turned out well!
Tokunaga has since been gifted to Hideo Baba-san, so in order to rewear Anise I'll have to make him, lol. Worth it though!

Boots (Posted 11th April 2012)
Well, in the last minute rush some corners have to be cut sadly ):
These are the bootcovers so far, not 100% accurate but if I get time later I'll fix them up a bit more with the front panel but if not they'll be staying like this. As is, the pieces are just not co-operating at all >_< but at least it has the brown piece on the back? More accurate than most!
The rest of the costume is now DONE (to an extent) and just needs ironing for packing! After a week of nothing but hassle this costume is finally DONE!!
Cape Progress (Posted 9th April 2012)
Been working away on Anise.. so far, very little besides Tokunaga has gone well, but it should be finished for Kita regardless!
Here's some cape progress; looking alright so far, just needs the 4 buttons and the bias around the collar. The design on the front is kinda big but I think it looks ok (it shouldn't follow up to the edges, but heck, it looks alright)!
Looking at the references now I can see so many inconsistencies and inaccuracies and misfittings.. fingers crossed it looks ok when it's finished, ughhh!!
All that's left now is to finish the pink dress by adding the zipper and bias, to make the bootcovers and to modify the socks. I hope I can get all of it done in time ;A; !!
Tokunaga! (Posted 7th April 2012)
Bought materials for this little guy yesterday and made him up today~ :} he was time consuming, but surprisingly, not too hard! I had some assistance from Shido with sewing the head on but I patterned him from scratch and sewed him all up. For my.. third? plush, I think he's turned out really well!!
He's pretty big, and soft <3 he's probably a tad *too* big for Anise, but he turned out this way and I'm not changing him haha! I'll be attaching him to my back around Kita~
Sadly he does not feature a transforming feature, so I will not be resizing him and using him for my bidding. Maybe one day I'll learn how to do that eh?
