Tada!!! outfits done! bar the stockings n tha...but still!!!!!

i'm gonna order the wig soon n buy sum dark purple stockings offline :)

So thats about it... almost ready for expo with this!! Just gotta hope my wig comes in time :|

What a life saver!! (Posted 11th September 2011)

Haha i was going to forgoe a weapon for October... because i can't do one in time... but the absolutely sensationally brilliant Liam_xlr8r has offered to lend mee one that will work for Saeko for October... so i've got till April ( Kitacon) to make her whatever u call it sword thing of doom!

So yeah .. weapon is sorted for October... and i Should be doing the finishing bits to the top tomorrow afternoon/evening! :P I can't waittt to take this for a test run at october... even if i shall be a bit chillyyy :P


Top! (Posted 11th September 2011)

Right soooo ... i've done a lot of the top today ( late i know butt better than never lol! )

i need to take it in at the sides a bit... cuz it turns out i have absolutely no waist in it :O

I need to do the bow... which shouldn't take too long


I need to fix the holes i accidently cut in it ... theres two... one at the back an the one a the front... woops lool... got a bit carried awayyy i think :P

Other than that!
All i really need to sort outfit wise is the stockings & supenders and theeee ... yaknow lol

I'm gonna order the wig once i've moved on the 23rd.

And i have no clue if the weapon will be done for expo or nott ... because i'm lazy LOL ... and i might struggle making ittt lool

Excuse the Gorm expression & lack of makeup / wig lool .. itsssssssssssssssssssss beeen a long day already lol

If theres no progress picture of me in this thing by the end of tomorrow shoot me. (Posted 8th September 2011)

I've been away on my hols... so i got a bit preoccupied with packing for that... n now packing for uni...but i demand i stitch the top before i leave... so i'm gonna do it tomorrow! :P

I'll be getting final things once i've moved... like the wig , stockings etc :)

Also... YAY FOR MY ABILITIES TO MAKE A GROUP FOR THIS :P ... for god knows when lol

But still.


TOP! (Posted 23rd August 2011)

I'm attacking my old sakura shippuuden top in a bit... to get the zip off it... so i can use it for my Saeko top!

muhahahaaa i have no clue why ... but its verrrry fun to destroy my old cosplays... probably because i don't like anything about them :P

So yeah! Destroying old ones in the hope the new ones are far better lol

Found some material for the bow... because i forgot to get sum when i got the green material...

I'm a douche i knowww!! :P

I should finish tacking it today... n sew it all up on the sewing machine thursday !

Top Progress (Posted 21st August 2011)

i've pinned / tacked everything down... bar the zip because i haven't took it off my old sakura shippuuden top yet... and the bow because i've got done it yet!

it lookss verrryy greeen... but i couldn't put it on for photos due tthe lack of zip & the lots of pins in it :P

Rubbish picture i knowwss

Progression! (Posted 19th August 2011)

Got the material!

I've finally managed to find some bias binding too... so hopefully the whiteine things will look wayyy better than they wud have done!

Iv'e cut the darker green material out into the collar and chesty peice thing... and i've pinned it all... i'm going to tack it later today :)

I've started editing the blouse... starting with taking off the collar :D So hopefully i'll have took off all the neccessary things before the end of the day.

Once ive took it in at the top at the sides i'll be cutting out the side peices and adding the zip :P

The bow will be the last thing i'm doing... because its easy lol

Blouse (Posted 17th August 2011)

I've brought a pack of two childrens blouses .... welll 15-16 yrs.... that i'm going to edit...
What i really don't get is why... WHY they are too big the waist upwards... ASDA to you expect people to be apple shaped nowadays?!?!?!! I am not pear shaped either ASDA.... Sort yourselves out would you!??!?!?!?!?!!!

It should fit however, once i've added the side strips & zip.

... gotta take the pocket and the collar off, all the buttons, stitch up the button holes, then add the zip, the green strips and the darker green collary thingy... and add the purple bow.

I should hopefully be getting zee material for it today.... if i can find the right stuff for cheap enough lol.

i'll get the stockings as soon as i find some goddamned dark purple ones... :S

Then its just the wig to order and the weapon to make ... ( which my dad has foolishly agreed to help me with... along with my Erza weapon ) ... but i'll have to get the stuff to make the weapon first LOL

thinkingg (Posted 26th July 2011)

I'm gonna buy a blouse for this towards the end of august... when the shops start to sell school stuff again... seen as it'll b easiest to find then... and rather cheap too!

Progression (Posted 21st July 2011)

Right so... i changed the sli to the right side... and i've added the burgundy reddy colour down each side of the slit... so the skirts done!!
I'm still on the lookout for a blouse to alter ( because i'm lazy) and the green material for the sides of the top and the other shade of green for the collar will be brought in a time not too far away hopefully... because my group want to match on the right colour greens its going to be a little bit before i can get that... seen as everyones broke :S

I'm being really lazy now... so i'm just going to take a picture ofthe skirt flat out on my bed as opposed to putting it on.

i'm such a noob! (Posted 21st July 2011)

I realised today... when i looked at the skirt... i've done the split on the wrong side :S gahhh... gonna try and fix it today

The Skirt so far (Posted 6th July 2011)

Sooo ... i thought i'd get started on the skirt today... seen as i'm soo hyped for this... and it took even less time than i expected!
i've just gotta add on some red ribbon down each side of the slit ... but other than that it's done!
apparantly thoo i've made it slightly shorter than what its meant to be... i don't see it ... but my sister does!

So yeah... In the image attatched ( It won't attatch :| ... see my photos!) the stockings are a pair of random ones i own... i'm going to get some purple ones! The boots are the ones i'm thinking of using for this cosplay... the blouse is random... its my Lucy Maid Blouse i found... getting a long sleeved white one and modifying it soon hopefully!
Wearingg a bikini underneathhh because i'm a spazzz and don't own the 'apporopriate underwear' LOL

Try not to throw up too much at the picture ...especially at thoseee legs of mineee! Its all i'm showing i swearssss! :P errible photo i knowww ... bad lightingggg from laura's stupid light!
... oh and ... excusee thee mess!!! I'm having a clearout of all things rubbish! :P

Laurarararaaaaa x

Research/ so far! (Posted 5th July 2011)

I've got some boots to wear for this... i just found them in my little clearout thing i've got going on... so thats one thing less to sort!

I'm going to start the skirt like... tomorrow or thursday ... it shouldn't take too long to do, seen as theres not a lot of skirt to make LOL

Found a wig to use i think... I'm putting the picture on with this... just because its suchh a pretty wig! Hopefully i can scrape the £17 toether to buy it, So i'll probably order it in the beggining of August.

Going to keep an eye out for Purple stockings etc and a white blouse i can modify... because It'll be cheaper than buying the material and less time consuming for me to fit in!
