|This is something that I really want to do but is kinda insane.|
So I'm keeping it a secret for now, I hoping to be able to do it at the October Expo maybe in the evening (as I'm actually fully booked for expo XD)
Edit - So I was originally going to keep this a secret but I want to post progress pictures and be able to ask advice without having to be silly about it so yeah I'm hoping to do Kneesock's Transformation scene outfit as well as her uniform, half way through the day I shall transform.(Edit - I'm now hoping to just wear this all day but I may still make the uniform for a different event) I really want to do this and hope I have the confidence for, I've already beaten my first weight loss goal of 21 lbs (10/07/11) and am hoping to have beaten my final weight loss goal by the time I do this so I can be happy and confident in it, so wish me luck!
Also I have no Scanty so if there are any Scanty's going on the Sunday of Expo I would LOVE photo's
To be warn with my Stocking ElleEctricity and her lovely Panty~
First wear and remakes! (Posted 10th November 2011)
Being Kneesocks was oh so fun, I was a little self conscious cosplaying her, especially when I saw Sushimonster as her (And those amazing Twins as S&K)but I still had so much fun. I am planning on wearing her again with my Scanty (ElleEctricity) at Amecon. Having worn her at Expo there are some parts I want to remake, I plan on making the ribbon a lot more structured, styling the wig more, possibly making a better horn and making new scythes.
Kneesocks will be made better then ever by Ame!
I want youuuu (Posted 26th September 2011)
So so close!

Spikey Spikey (Posted 19th September 2011)
My Spikes finally arrived!
Start of Scythes (Posted 13th September 2011)
This is the base shape for the Scythe blades, next step is papermacheing the entire thing to make it nice and stiff and strong, and give it a nice finish, then it's onto painting them and attaching them to the poles!
Make up test (Posted 10th September 2011)
Test shot for makeup, wig and horn~
The wig still needs styling but at least I know I can cover the elastic for the horn which is good.
Had to use my Lilith contacts as my eyes completely rejected my Kneesocks ones OTL
But they look okay I guess.
Top Half Progress! (Posted 5th September 2011)
Anyway, another top half test shot! This time with Horn, choker and 1st bracelet~
Got so much done today *proud*
Left to do:
- Add ribbon to top/skirt
- Add all the studs!
- Make Scythes
- Get Zentai
Not much left to do!
Bracelet (Posted 5th September 2011)
Kneesocks bracelet all pinned together, this was really tricky to put together and I’m surprised I didn’t prick myself. Still needs the spikes (Which are yet to arrive) and then some velcro so I can get it on and off and then it’s done!
Onto the next one~
Horn~ (Posted 5th September 2011)
I made the horn today, I'm hoping the elastic will be hidden my the wig (I'll have it going behind my head not under my chin) My studs still haven't arrived but I'm just about to start making the bracelets and possibly adding the ribbon to the top and skirt :)
Top! (Posted 2nd September 2011)
Top half of Kneesocks cosplay as of today~
Still lots to do, the top needs its stud detail and straps as well as the neck thing. It also needs a more secure way of joining at the back as I bent down and it just popped off O.O
May have to just sew it together and fight my way into it XD
Armbands need poppers/velcro so that they stay on my arms, also need to start on the bracelet thingys but the studs haven’t arrived for that yet.
All in all I’ve made loads of progress today, quite happy with myself!
- Make bracelets
- Add straps and choker to top
- Add stud detail to top and skirt
- Add ribbon detail that joins the top & skirt
- Make the scythe heads
- Get Zentai
- Make Horn! (I keep forgetting I need this >.<)
Skirt and glasses (Posted 2nd September 2011)
Worked on the skirt today, it's pretty much done, it just needs the studs and horseshoe type thing, I'm really happy with how its come out so far though!
Contacts~ (Posted 25th August 2011)
I had some trouble finding contacts, I wanted some that were green and yellow but the only nice ones I found didn't actually look that great in person so I went for these instead :) I think they work pretty well ^^
New Wig (Posted 25th August 2011)
2 updates in one day~
Skirt - Start (Posted 25th August 2011)
So after the hectic weekend that was Aya I'm back and ready to get working on Expo, I started with Kneesock's skirt, I've got the basic shape here ready to be hemmed and sewn together, I'm going to be making her little horseshoe type thing out of airdry clay as it's nice and light as well as possibly her little studs on the skirt as the ones I used for the armbands are too small.
Small Update (Posted 4th August 2011)
Only a small update as I'm working on Ayacon cosplay's at the moment, I really want to get started on Kneesocks but they must come first. I found these gorgeous shoes in New Look and just had to get them. They aren't as high as I had hoped but I couldn't walk in the other higher ones I wanted OTL So these are the one's I'm going to be using as I can actually walk in them XD
Ready Set Go! (Posted 15th July 2011)
Been getting stressed by HJ and Ayacon cosplays so I decided to work on something else and here we are. Ive started on something simple, her armbands. I already had the PVC from my Mr Taxi cosplay and the studs from my RunDevilRun Cosplay. Ive only made one so far and I havent added the velcro or however I decide to attach them as my arm size may change before October.
Edit - I have now made both armbands, ready to have the velcro/popper nearer October.
