Its so beautiful! Yes I know its another girl character but her design is so nice and definetly has that winter feel to it

Penguins (Posted 17th June 2012)

I almost have my trio of penguins now :D which shall be seen at Amecon

Groin guard (Posted 24th January 2012)

Recieved my cup recently so its more female appropriate! Damn leotards and damn my cosplay choices!

Boots progress (Posted 9th January 2012)

My boots have arrived! They are kinda tight around my thigh but hey they are meant to be for women ^^"

They do look really good, perfect for this character, will post a photo of them soon but as of now, this cosplay is technically complete! :D

Boots (Posted 1st January 2012)

Just ordered my boots today, she will be almost totally finished soon!

Arm Bands (Posted 24th December 2011)

Arm bands are also completed
using a table cloth and white cotton sewn on. Think I will stuff them more so they are bigger

Corset Progress (Posted 24th December 2011)

A bit tight but not too shabby :)
cotton, yellow lining and a table cloth for the frilly detail.
Gold buttons sewn on. Im pretty pleased

Dress progress (Posted 17th December 2011)

Here is what the skirt looks so far :)
Needs a little more detail but its looking so beautiful! Underneath is a layer of red silk and white cloth going down from the front......so close and so near! Just more detail, the leotard, arm cuffs and boots to go :D

Ribbon/Bow (Posted 17th December 2011)

The lovely de'cor to my skirt. Glued a safety pin button at the back so it can be attached and taken off with ease. Made with cloth and stitched together. I cant wait for Hyper Japan! :D

Gloves (Posted 17th December 2011)

Finished of my gloves as well, made a lace hole so I can put my finger through like its shown in the anime. I only took a picture of one glove atm as its difficult to take a picture on your own but they are both finished :D.

Its just those big cuffs on the top of the arm I have to do i'm dreading T_T

Collar/Neck band (Posted 17th December 2011)

OK I have done a few major things but haven't had the time to update so here goes......

I have finished my Collar and scarf. Felt stuff with cotton, Velcro at the back so I take it off when I need to. Given it some detail with some white cloth that I have used from an old table cover and the scarf is just one bit of silk :3 and it feels so nice

Penguin Hat (2) (Posted 13th December 2011)

Finished and added the decorations to it as well as the cotton around the bottom of the hat

Penguin Hat (Posted 12th December 2011)

Made a start on the penguin hat/crown
blimey these ears are long but will look so cool when its done :D

Penguin Drum (Posted 6th November 2011)

If Kanba and Shoma ever find it! I shall make a prop penguin drum to go with this character, everything else is on steady progress :)

So far I have 4 penguins (Im counting Esmeralda!) to make and a penguin drum, I don't think there's any more props I would want for this character yet!

Contact lenses (Posted 30th October 2011)

At expo I bought the perfect contact lenses as I want to use for this cosplay to be perfect in detail :) Problem is ive never used contacts in my life so got a lot of paitence and perserverance to put up with >.<

But first il see an optition and see if im suitable for contact lenses first. I may of wasted money but its a lesson learn and handy info to pass onto people who have never done contacts in their life :) If it doesnt work out then I suppose its not the end of the world and il just learn to photoshop the eye colour into them

Wig (Posted 11th October 2011)

Just about going to start this cosplay. Its a dream dress so i'm going to start on some on the easier details

So far I have purchased the wig which should be here within the month
