|Note: Unfortunately due to Uni work (did a group exhibition), limited time and problems, I could not get this done for Kitacon 4 =( I really wanted to get it done, but in the end it was just not possible. I will be doing casual Mami Friday.|
I'm not exactly sure when I'll get this done for, since I realised that tokonatsu wouldn't be best to wear it at due to the white heals + mud = dirty boots.
I'm most annoyed with how I've wasted so many bits for the underbust corset (luckily none of the steel boning since I lost it at the time) and it has to go to waist since I know I need to make a whole new one that is better. I know at least it means I've learnt from it and can do it better next time, but I hate wasting material X_X
I really enjoyed the series and wanted to cosplay one of the characters, so in the end Mami seemed best due to my figure. If my figure were smaller then I would have cosplayed Homura as both my friend (who is going to cosplay Madoka) and I agreed her personality/character seemed more matching to me.
Anyway, I really quite liked Mami's magical girl outfit, her character was interesting and it will be a change from the types of cosplays I've done.
Plus I could make some cake 8D

Still not finished >O< (Posted 29th October 2012)
So this was still not finished, leaving me dissapointed and annoyed with myself. I tried to get as much done before london expo but I still had bits to do due to less time than i thought I had, problems occuring and having to get more ribbons. I've put up a photo of the majority of what I got done up to and the last bits I had to do at expo.
The Start (Posted 3rd February 2012)
Well I've made a bit of a start on Mami, though it's only really been the boots and shaping some wire for her soul gem hair piece form, with researching into how I can make my normal wig be able to have a back parting. There's still bits I need to buy for the costume, but I've got the main materials sorted, I just need to set myself some proper time to sort it out aka when I've gotten my Uni work on a good roll and mainly after the group exhibition is done in March.
