8th March 2009: More work So the back bow is complete.
I've made the front bow, but i think it looks a bit too small, so i might end up using the bow from my original Sailor Jupiter costume.
I've started on the side ... stripes, I suppose. I'm attaching them with snap fasteners, and hiding the fastens at the front with the star decoration when I get that made.
I'm hoping to get all the sewing bits done this week - so the last two weeks beofre Minami I can concentrate on the accessories, like the choker, earrings, tiara and the decorations on the boots. Which have arrived and I can pick up on Monday from the post office. :)
1st March 2009: Getting on with things The fuku is looking like a proper fuku now. ^^
The collar needs attaching, and I need to bias bind the dark green skirt. I'm using the gloves from my origina Sailor Jupiter costume. I have to make the front and back bows. And also add the two green ribbon linings to to the waist of the costume.
The boots were a lucky find in Shoe Zone. They're originally black but have been painted and sprayed white. Unfortunately the paint I used is peeling really, really badly! So I have to find a different paint to use. *sigh*
No problem though. I'm making good head way, so I should be done before MinamiCon!. :3
10th February 2009: Slow going I haven't had a lot of inspiration to work on this until a few days ago.
The fuku is starting to look more like a fuku, which is good. The skirts are trimmed to the right length and just need bias binding to stop them fraying. The man body of the fuku is done.
I've attached the start of the bubble sleeves (pale green chiffon material) and have mad a start on the cuffs to those sleeves. They just need stuffing with wading and sewing on.
The boots are REALLY slow going. I think I'm going to leave them 'til last because of various issues (money etc.)
I have a neat tutorial to make the collar the right way from lynleigh.com and the gloves I'm using the pair from my original Sailor Jupiter.
We're getting there.
8th January 2009: Once Upon a Time... There was a pile of material. 3 metres of matte lycra. 3 metres of emerald satin and 3 metres of male green satin.
Folded in a fabric land bag, they sat, dejected and sad that they were not something beautiful.
They were unaware that they would be (attempted) to be mae into something beautiful very shortly...
((I have too much time on my hands))

Ranma1-2 - 11th April 2009
Wow you've got this one finished really early. (Haven't started on my Oct cos yet!)
BlusterSquall - 11th April 2009
@Ranma: Aw thank you! ^^
I got it finished early cause I wanted to wear it at Minami. Chevi was going to have her Eternal Moon done by then (but unfortunately it fell through). I'm going to improve a few things on it before October though. Mostly the gloove cuffs - they're too high up the arm. >_<
I can't wait to see your Galaxia! You'll never take my Star Seed!!
