Well done, you pushed through with this and now it looks fab! Tell me about your new Teflon foot (everyone seems to be getting one of these) - how do they work?

Ramna: Thanks so much hun :)
I still have a fair bit of gym time to go and finishing up of the costume but its getting there <3
Teflon feet OMG! They are amazing! They prevent the fabric (pvc, vinyl, leatherette) from sticking to the foot and pulling it, which makes it impossible to sew! With the teflon foot, no stickiness, the fabric just glides through. Only cost me about £5 from ebay :) Hope that helps xxx

SHE'S DONE! (Posted 2nd April 2012)

OMG! A costume I have wanted to do for years and never had the guts or ability to make it! I love this costume I just hope I love my figure enough to wear it! >< There are still a few odds and ends to tidy up on her but she's done :D eeeee so happy! Now just gotta fix my Spike up to make sure he looks dapper as always XD <3

Base is finished (Posted 23rd March 2012)

Bar shedding a couple of pounds and adding my red shirt and yellow headband I'm pretty chuffed with this :)

I have to add my buttons(if I can find 'em >< ) Sort out the elastic bits (I need little plastic triangles for the harness thing she has so one I find those I should be set.

Buying a teflon foot for machine was the best thing I could have done. It helped me transform my cosplay from a shoddy WIP to something I'm actually quite happy with :)

LONG LIVE TEFLON! <3

It begins ¬¬ (Posted 16th February 2012)

So.. after crippling my fingers peeling the vinyl away from itself and looking like I had developed Arthritis in both hands. o.o I finally started work on the base for FayeFaye.

For two hours work.. it's not alot >< I can only do a couple of hours at a time at my house cos of other people in the house. Lousy loud sewing machine! D:

I got the base for the shorts done and just need to adjust to fit better and hem :) I did a quick mock of the top but needs a fuckton of ammending to make it look remotely like its meant to.

So for the record... yes.. it looks naff, but for 2 hours work, I don't think I did too bad (considering how impatient I am)
Most of it is still pinned because I ran out of thread too. ><

Further Fail (Posted 9th February 2012)

Ok... I am NOT looking forward to this :(
The fabric I ordered based on the sample I got.. wasn't the same and instead of a deeper yellow colour, it's BRIGHT yellow. Which I didn't want. BUT... considering I have NO other option that I can think of. I will have to make due.

D: Prepare for grumpy progress pics in the near future D:<

US Shipping Fail. (Posted 7th February 2012)

Ok.. so my original vinyl plan went out the window as soon as Spandexworld wanted to charge me $45 for shipping for 2 metres of fabric D: Sad times.

After getting a sample from an ebay seller, recommended by a fellow C.I'er :) I have ordered some cheaper vinyl but it looks a pretty decent shade. Not perfect but without spending through the nose for it.. it's the best I'm going to get I think ><
