Pet Peve (Posted 17th November 2011)
Im a bit of a perfectionist, so it bugs me my skirt isnt the right colour, but my chance the day i went to get my skirt fabric they sold out of the colour i wanted (same colour used for my 1st attempt at yuna) the colour i got was the next best thing and less i wanted a deep sea blue. :/
Other then that its just my wig thats bugging me, i so badly need a new one but have no time to get one before memro. :/ (shall fix this after memro).
1 thing about this project: SOOOOOO MUCH FABRIC PAINT!! <3
memorabilia birmingham is soooo close (Posted 14th November 2011)
The next photo's i upload will be from memorabilia birmingham, im still in progress as im finishing this cosplay this week, may have a preview photo up on wednesday no promises. So excited about this cosplay!!! Just hope it looks beter then my 1st atempt.
**Note:** i plan to buy a better wig but i wont have time to before memorabilia birmingham. So will fix this at a later date.
BOW (Posted 16th October 2011)
There are quite a few differences between my OLD YUNA BOW and NEW YUNA BOW, an obvious one is the fabric, previously i used yellow polly-cotton but this time i used gold satin (as looking closely to Yuna in game CGI, the belt+bow fabric is slightly shiny, and a gold tone not yellow, but thats just my opinion). Another clear difference is on the old bow i sewn on the detail (the vine and leafs, also didn’t add any flowers) but this time i painted the detail on (still unsure if i like it or not, im not a strong painter- but practise makes perfect) including flowers. Last point my old Yuna bow was also stuffed so it hung like half opened wings on my back, my new bow has interface inside so it stands.
Over all there is one thing i have to say: I like my new bow better. :3
Sample (Posted 13th October 2011)
**Flower in image wrong colour was just testing the effect + shape, found the purple paint now**
Have the purple and green paint, missing the white. (Only just noticed!! :|) so im going to do what i can tonight and finish it off tomorrow. (Got distracted till now, bought Fable 3 today. :P)
Decided that im going to remake the skirt for this cosplay, at first i was going to re-use my old one but after seeing the masive difference between the skirt i made and yuna's i didnt even do any pleats!! So remakeing!! <3
Ordering a new wig also as had problems with old yuna wig, once straightened it sticks up, only while its on my head, on the wig head it looks perfect. :[
Also buying memrobilia ticket soon (Cant spell when tied...)
bow and belt (Posted 10th October 2011)
I decided to use satian ive got the bow done just need to make the belt, im soon to paint on the detail and then there shall be a photo. :3
Progress!! (Posted 19th August 2011)
Sleeves ready to be sewn and dyed. Made one of yuna's braclets, but as the beads are shiny when i take a photo they look white/blury. :/
Necklace (Posted 12th August 2011)
Im actualy disapointed with the necklace as when it arrived its 3 times bigger then it said it would be, also it wont sit flat on my chest and the chain is too long. :/
Will solve this some how. :3
Bikini top (Posted 1st August 2011)
**Note- There is a reason i got a size 16 bikini top. Coverage along with the fact i need to sew material to it. (I am going to remove the bead detail.)**
The first attempt of summoner Yuna i didn’t secure the white material of the top to my bra. (Yep i used a bra instead of a bikini). This time i got a bikini and am going to sew the top onto it to prevent movement and flashing. :|
Paints (Posted 30th July 2011)
**In the image the colours look really dark,but they are not as dark as the image shows. Also these aren’t all the paints I will be using its just I haven’t got them all yet.**
My first attempt as Summoner Yuna I was a complete novice and wanted to sew every little detail on, which of course is difficult when we are talking small scale detail. o.O, I managed to apply all the detail with great difficulty.
This time I want to paint the detail on, only because I have never really tried, also with a small paint brush you can achieve shading if necessary etc.
Sleeves (Posted 30th July 2011)
**The material is white in the image- Bad lighting makes the colour look off.(sorry.)**
The sleeves I made for Summoner Yuna the first time was made out of poly cotton and for some reason it hates the dye I used for the gradient effect. (Which left random dark pink patches on the areas that needed to be white.)
This time I picked some heavier material: Jersey cotton and I’m going to make my sleeves longer length wise. (Aiming to make them to my waste, as last time I made them too short.) I’m using a lighter dye also in order to create a more elegant pink. (Hopefully.)
