|Time Taken :||25hrs -Give or take-|
|Ive been planning to do Souseiseki for a long time (just ask Blobfish) but kept deciding to wait because i didnt think i was good enough at sewing. But i really want to try because Souseiseki is awesome...|
Just decided, about 5 minutes ago, that i want to do Souseiseki for expo. This is gonna be a big challenge for me so wish me luck! XD
(Maybe you will see Souseiseki afterall Crystalneko!)
Gah, some fabric issues so im not sure about this now... T-T And i think id rather have a sewing machine when i make this (hand sewing everything is a pain!)
Started the 'trousers' today XD (I may end up calling them genie pants haha). Just have to hem and elasticate (is that a word?) the bottom of them and they should be finished. Im well proud (does that sound chavvy?) of them as its the first time ive ever attempted trousers, and i had to make my own pattern XD
If i keep working then Souseiseki should be done by the end of half term... ish... im not sure if i can get a hat by then...
Finished the trousers yesterday, waaaahey! XD And i also made the shoulder cloaky thingy (oh dear <.<; i need to use real words). I just need to get eyelets or something into the front of it to connect it to the black waistcoaty thingy (which will be made today or tomorrow!). My dad has given me a shirt thats too small for him (and too big for me) to modify for her shirt, the er... cuffs(?) are the right size for teh large cuffs Souseiseki has so thats really good ^^ I just need to sew on the collar really (er, and make the collar at that!)
I still havent finished it, im being lazy T-T
But i will finish it in time for expo!
Also, this will be reworn for a Rozen Maiden group next May, yay!
Buttons have been sewn onto the cuffs, unfortunately they are black but i have NO money to buy white ones so i had to work with what was in the sewing tin. The collar is now in progress, its been cut out and partially sewn up. Will try and finish it next weekend. Then i just got to find white tights.
I gots some over the knee white socks that will work so im happy XD
Ive also finished the collar, just have to tweak one side of it where its about an inch longer than the other but thats all, so Souseiseki is now being changed to 'Complete'! Whooo!
This makes me very happy as Souseiseki was, i guess, a dream cosplay for me. But now i know that i can make cosplay's like this i think i finally have the courage to try something harder ^^ (Irena Sykes maybe? For Expo in october? Id need help though ._. )
