Costume Information

Description
After watching Tron:Legacy again the other day, the pretty lights got to me and I have begun to toy with the idea of cosplaying Quorra since her outfit is just too awesome for words (the film is generally too awesome for words). I'm going to attempt this and see if its wearable for Sunday of LFCC 2011, i doubt i'll be able to figure out lighting the suit up, so i'll settle for some basic reflective tape for now.

Oooh and this will be my first character with short hair...O_O

LFCC 2011 (Posted 12th July 2011)

Went to my first LFCC event last Sunday and it had a blast! I wore this costume even though it was in a bit of a state but it was still fun to wear. I'm calling this costume a work in progress as i really badly want to improve it (Reminds me of my Fran costume) as by the end of the day it was falling apart hahaha I did most of the work Saturday evening, I suprised myself and stayed up til 2am slaving away haha
I'm not decided yet when i'll remake this for, Possibly for Ayacon but more likely for October Expo. I've got to wrack my brains to figure out how to light it up ^_^

Hexagon design (Posted 1st July 2011)

Well this costume looks like it might be a bit of a fail but I'm still determined to see what it'll look like in the end. Even though i'm making this costume a bit half-heartedly I decided to try and get some accuracy with the materials. However I could not find any hexagon print fabric that was 'tron' enough so I came up with a crazy plan that involved t-shirt transfer paper. Basically I printed the hexagon pattern out and transfered it to some fabric. Unfortunately the process is costly and time consuming so I've decided to only transfer the pattern where its needed rather than the whole fabric.

So far it looks a bit odd to say the least but hopefully my crazy brain's plan will come together at some point. I've also completed the gloves i made, so that's one thing to tick off the list.....How i'm going to finish this in a week...i don't know.

Sexy Boots! (Posted 28th June 2011)

This costume is working out to be a last minute rush, but that's always the case for me. I received my boots today and they're pretty cool! Not the most comfortable of boots but hopefully i can wear them in!

I've still got alot to do but i'm keeping my fingers crossed that this costume will somehow come together for LFCC at the last moment. If not, then I'll have to wear this another time but for now I'm gonna pray its ready for the sunday of LFCC.

Wig and Make-up test! (Posted 10th June 2011)

I decided to hack at my wig today and i'm surprised that I haven't managed to completely screw it up (I love wigs but they're not my best friend) I was scared to cut it at first and Quorra has to have a quirky cut to make it difficult. I'm quite happy with the outcome but i think i've flicked out the side a bit too much >_<

Also did another makeup test and i'm happier with this one, I used different eyemakeup and tried to add a bit of glow to my face with some white eyeshadow(I'm thinking i should invest in something better though) All in all today has been quite productive but as always never completely satisfied.

Wig arrived!!! (Posted 7th June 2011)

Soo excited that my wiggy arrived today, and as everyone does, i had to try it on right away! This is my first short wig and i must say its gonna take me a while to adjust to the look, i've never had hair this short. I'm not 100% convinced at how it looks but its growing on me. Just need to get out my scissors and style it more like Quorra, lets hope i don't screw it up, i've not got much wig to work with lol

Glove progress (Posted 6th June 2011)

I still haven't gathered all the materials for this costume yet but I've already managed to make base gloves from a nice lycra/spandex material. It was a bit of a mission as i find sewing with stretch fabric generally hell to work with and then on top of that gloves are a pain to make too.
I should have really tried to make them properly fitted, but i find it difficult without a pattern to fall back on so i just drew around an exsisting pair of gloves i had. I was even too lazy to make the thumbs seperate >_< but surprisely they look better than i imagined they would (considering this is my first pair of gloves made from scratch!)
I really need to get a move on now. Next I think will be to make the top that will go under the 'dress' (which i will probably attach these gloves to). But I'm attempting to stencil the 'hexagon' pattern on the material first (because i'm insane) Wish me luck!

Reflective tape test (Posted 2nd June 2011)

Right, i've finally got some sort of progress going, but its not been much more than clicking a 'buy' button and waiting for the post. Since I've not much time I decided to buy some leggings, they're a leather-look fabric and I'm really happy with their appearance. All i need to do is add the light design to one of the legs.
I also got some reflective tape as i really dont have the time,paitence or money to make this suit light up with el wire at the moment (maybe at a later date i will) But its not too bad, and gives a nice white light when using a camera flash. I shouldn't really insist on making this without doing it 'properly' but hey ho I'm insane like that.

Eye Makeup Test 1 (Posted 27th May 2011)

Right, I'm clearly too excited about making this costume, I haven't got any materials yet but felt i had to something towards the costume. Costume makeup is always fun to play around with, so i've spent the afternoon studying and trying to imitate the look for myself. As usual its easier said than done, but i've managed the basic idea, i'd like to get a hint of blue eyeshadow around the eyes and a better white that stands out a bit more. I also need to work on the eyeliner shape, perhaps a little less too.
