Costume Information

I had a lot of reservations about adding this due to many reasons. I'm worried I won't suit Kanaya but in the end, I've finally decided to add this.

Our Steins;Gate group for midlands kinda fell through due to time/avaliability/money in the group so we've decided to leave it for another time!

I've recently started reading Homestuck and after getting used to it, I really like it. There are many characters that I like and I've had to decide between them for what I'm doing for midlands ^^;; I hope this costume turns out well!! :D


Good luck with this :) cant wait to see it finished :D

Progress (Posted 13th February 2012)

I'm pretty proud of the skirt, it didn't take long to make. I need to hem it and do little bits to it but it's generally done. I had trouble with the two different pieces fitting together but it worked out in the end (after a few hours ^^;;). The Virgo sign still needs a few more coats of paint as it's quite hard to see! It's a little smaller than I wanted but the template I made was too like the sign for me not to use! :D

Wig/Make-up test (Posted 11th February 2012)

The wig is a good base to use but it needs a lot of chopping/styling! I'm not comfortable with wearing contacts yet, so my eyes will stay blue...but I'm fairly happy with the rest :)
