|Time Taken :||3 months|
|Prussia crazy? Yes, yes I am XD|
I found a official picture of Fem!Prussia on tumblr a few weeks back and she is beautiful! It's better than what I imagined her to look like! (Also blame a certain boyfriend of mine when I couldn't decide between this version or the Austrian Succession outfit XD )
I want to make the skirt a bit longer for comfort reasons, and I want to make white boot covers since finding white boots are a nightmare to find.
For the Saturday of Kitacon 2012.
|Style wig||High||In Progress|
|Buttons and trimmings||£18.00||Bought|
|Materials for boots and sash||£30.00||Bought|
Tidy up (Posted 11th March 2012)
With Kitacon being nearly a month away and I may have a photoshoot with this, I started to tidy up things.
I sewed up the holes that were underneath the sleeves of the jacket (fail thought I did that already but it's done now.)
I bought the skirt from primark a while back, but it was calf length, so I cut off the length I didn't need and hemmed it up so it's now around knee/above knee length. Originally was going to get or make a pleated skirt but this skirt still has flowiness to it that I like.
I need to tidy up the boot covers as the lace is coming off so need to re-sew that, but shouldn't take too long.
Even if I don't take this with me to the photoshoot tomorrow, at least I'll have it ready for Kitacon.
Finished! (Posted 28th December 2011)
Just finished the sash today.
Nearly there! (Posted 28th December 2011)
Just a wee progress pic to show what I have done. These were taken a couple weeks ago so all the lace detail has been added on since yesterday.
Jacket finished (Posted 27th December 2011)
The jacket has been tidied up and I have replaced the gold trimmings with lace which was hand sewed along with the lace around the jacket which took me most of the afternoon. I also sewed on the 15th and final button onto it.
Make up and wig test (Posted 16th December 2011)
My camera is really crappy but I used fake eyelashes to "fem" them up a bit. I still need to figure out how to do the scar and also need to cover my eyebrows with grey makeup or something. Also need to style the fringe.
Update (Posted 16th December 2011)
<<< Preview time again!
Update (Posted 15th December 2011)
Recently bought the last of everything I need to finish off this cosplay. I got white leather material and made the boot covers. This was my first time making them as well. Still need to tidy them up and add the rest of the detail. Also got material for the sash and currently making that, and also bought the skirt which will be altered. The wig arrived yesterday, it didn't have the style of fringe that I wanted so going to style that up and maybe take at least an inch off the length of the wig. 50/50 chance I'll finish this by New Year.
Update (Posted 3rd November 2011)
Recently got a shirt for my graduation (Thanks to my mum for buying it, only 99p!) so after it I'm going to sew on the lace around the collar. After trying on the shirt and jacket together I've decided not to add a collar to the jacket. I'm worried about it looking "cluttered" if that makes any sense and it would be hidden by the shirt collar anyway. I'll see when I have it all done.
Jacket update (Posted 29th October 2011)
I have now sewn on all the trimmings and 14 buttons onto the jacket. Still a bit of tidying up to do around the collar and the sleeves. I've decided that I will be adding a collar somepoint. I'm also planning to add something along the side of the jacket near the trimmings because they fray easily so in order to stop that I need to add on something else, so either more lace or red material like the sleeves. It's nearly there!
Update (Posted 5th October 2011)
Finished up the jacket and sewn on the sleeves and added the lace. Ended up breaking a needle while sewing the sleeves but luckily found another one. Theres still a bit of tidying up to do plus adding the buttons and rest of the detail.
Change of plan (Posted 30th September 2011)
Ok so instead of making the jacket on Wednesday, I made it today. Turns out I wasn't going out til after 6 so I thought that gave me time to make the jacket. I drew out a pattern from my Glaceon jacket and cut the main body of it from the velvet and sewn it altogether. I still need to do the sleeves and sew them on, but I'm glad I got the main body of it done. Hopefully will have it done by next week then just to add the rest of the detail.
The plan (Posted 30th September 2011)
Ok so I got my materials last week and haven't made much progress XD but the plan is that on wednesday (if uni work is not in the way) I'm going to make a start on the jacket, so then it will be mostly done and it's just adding bits and bobs to it. I'm aiming to get it done around Christmas time and worry about the wig and boots after (unless someone gets me the wig for Christmas <3 ) So I'm going to work on this cosplay at every free chance I get and pray I get it done by the end of the year.
7 months to go (Posted 13th September 2011)
So I have 7 months to get this done in time for Kitacon. No backing out of this one now that I have entered the masquerade for it (insane much? XD )
