|Due to my break down, Zhen Ji feel to pieces and so did my motivation to cosplay. However, after going through my fabric boxes I found some inspiration and motivation.|
In my extensive collection of left over fabric, I found a fair amount of pvc lycra from my Golden Darkness cosplay. Nene's alternate costume leaped into my mind as I dug out my Warriors Orochi Databook. The game is possibly my favourite, and Nene is a character that I thoroughly enjoyed playing as. Therefore I gave into the temptation. At the moment, I am only making it for fun without giving myself the stress of a deadline but I would very much love to have it finished for Expo; I promise not too push myself too much.
|Turn top and leggings into a catsuit||High||Complete|
Pretty Much finished! (Posted 2nd October 2011)
Well this hasn't turned out too bad considering it was quickly put together with scrap fabric. I would have liked it to have been tighter on the crotch area as it has for some reason gone a little baggy so if I have time I will try to fix that. The wig is not a bob because I couldn't afford to buy a new one, so I just clipped up my longer one, which looks pretty good. Shoes Might change to be more accurate but once again that depends on time and money - I love the shoes in this picture anyway XD I won't be making the daggers simply because I suck at weapon making >< Anyway, I love this costume, and hope that everyone else likes it too.
Progress and Test (Posted 16th September 2011)
I am actually really happy with this but I have so much to fix and do. (Wig, Shoes, Shoulder Armour and Daggers need to be done) Th biggest issue I have with this costume is the leggings like to fall and show my bum, which I don't really appreciate. Therefore I am going to attach them to the top and turn it into a catsuit which the costume is originally. The long black ribbon is there to finish the threading; when the top and leggings are attached, the threading will go higher to my waist line. Other than that I really can't be asked to talk fully about the costume right now - too tired.

After hours of sewing that bloody leather, we are done.I quite like it, I am glad I decided on leather (might change my mind when I make the wrist guards). I chose leather because I wanted a stiff material and I thought it would go well with the pvc lycra I am using for the rest of the costume (also I lots left over from Noh's snake and Xiao Qiao's wings and I need to use it up). I have altered the design a little but that doesn't really matter.
Leggings (Posted 11th September 2011)
Well these were harder to make than I expected. I have never made pattern to fit the crotch area before so it was a little challenge. The pattern is not perfect and a little messy but I am pretty pleased with it. I actually do really like them, and I hope the rest of he costume turns out well. A great start ^^
