Time Taken : Just under a week

My Halloween costume! 8D

I have loved the Skull Mages ever since I saw them~ Being a Blue Mage since I can use my blueish Mikuo wig for it...Not that the Blue Mages have hair that blue, but we can pretend they do.

It's compreted! Well, it's complete as it's going to get for a while. I decided against some of the details for now, but since I have the fabric to make them with I'll probably add them when I get bored or something. I am very happy with this! 8D I also feel more like a true cosplayer since this costume made me need to stay up till 2:30 more than once to work on it, and also it was made in less than a week only because of those late night workings. I feel like I've leveled up.

I am exite! (Posted 25th October 2011)

YES I AM. I just finished making the shirt and I gotta say...I am very proud of it. It's probably the best one I've ever made as it fits perfectly and the zig-zag blue part turned out pretty neat. I'm very pleased!
I finished everything else over the weekend mostly, starting with the shorts. They were only the second pair of pants I've ever made so they aren't too great xD I need a belt to keep them up, I really hope my shirt is going to be long enough to hide it o_o
Finished the staff in two days, though it only took no more than an hour all together the make. I didn't have time to walk in the rain to buy felt for the beak so I just painted some spare craft foam yellow and used that instead. So with that, I have finished all the clothing and propness and just need to do some details, such as...
-Adding the circle things onto the shirt
-Adding the criss-cross parts onto the sleeves
-Adding the fake ties to the hood
-Possible adding the criss-cross parts onto the shorts (if I have time/can be bothered)

I also need to fix the hood at the idea I had while I was really tired turned out to not be so great, and the result is the hood making me look like I have a hunchback xP Hopefully the fake ties will be useful for fixing that up, but we shall see.

6 hours till the anime/game/Japanese society's Halloween party! xD

Asymmetrical in the best of ways (Posted 22nd October 2011)

Phew, I have been working on this since like...10! It's now 1:40 in the morning. Granted, it was work-pause-work-pause, but still. I got the majority of the hood AND the cape done! 8D Exiting stuff! I like the freedom I have with these parts, they don't need to be symmetrical at all.

The hood! Lemme tell ya, the ears were hard to place correctly xP Everything else was fine though, after getting the shape and such figured out (which too longer than I would have liked) All that's left to do on it is add the swirls on the eyes and possibly add the extra brown "ties" to the back. I don't think I'm going to get around to making the rings for it by Halloween.

The cape is all cut and stuff, it was lotsa fun to do! All I need to do is thread the ribbon tie through.
Enjoy the crap photos of it all in a pile on my chair.
