|Because I like the spacky characters alright?! And of course, I have to do the superhero version! Was intended for Aya, but that failed so last minute attempt to get it done for Expo :D|
On some of the animations they've coloured her with black t-shirt instead of the blue - so will decide which colour scheme depending on what material I have in my cupboard. Gotta try and refresh my Tae Kwon Do memory so I can at least attempt some decent poses! (...will probably break something, I'm so unflexible nowadays XD)
I have clothes! (Posted 26th October 2011)
Bonus point of a costume - being covered :P Got the trousers done tonight after a mishap the evening before! Also added the cape to the top for superhero fun time. Finally got me some converses which make perfect shoes for her also, so that's an easy bit out of the way.
I'll hem up the bottom of the t-shirt once I know how high the belt will sit on my waist. Left to do - gloves, belt and glasses. Go Go Go Go! I will have something new made for Expo for once :P
LOOK AMY-LOU! PROOF OF SEWING! (Posted 24th October 2011)
Why do I always pick the retarded characters? Because sewing a angry frog face is fun, that's why!
I'm running real late on this 'sewing a costume for Expo' thing, but finally got the cosplay bug this evening and made a start on May Lee. Seeing as I've flaked at least two times on her, I need to at least have a go :P
So, top 90% done! I just need to sew the last line of applique around the frog (you can see that's a bit messy still as it's just tacked on) then woot, half the clothing is there! The t-shirt is a really nice soft dark blue jersey I found, and the frog is made from left over scraps of various materials I had. Budget cosplay go ;)
I don't think I'll get her 100% finished for Expo, but should be enough to wear her and muck around a bit with the rest of the KOF crew :D
