Costume Information

Description
Since I started playing Harvest Moon DS, I was like "This game is so awesome I need to cosplay someone from it"
Popuri is so cute and pink XD
I was debating to cosplay Muffy, but I thought Popuri requires a bit more effort XD how that works I don't know~

Putting this down for Kita, now that I've postponed Minuet. I just want to hand out creme eggs/chocolate eggs for no raisen really. Also now I can do corsets, this shouldn't be too difficult/take too long.
Finding the fabrics for this was really easy ^^ All I need now is a big basket and a really cute chicken plush (which will be hard because I don't like chickens very much SOWHYAMIDOINGTHIS)

So happy with how this has turned out, especially the shirt. I think this has help me gain a few skills, including making poofy sleeves, gathering, and how to pleat the waistband of a skirt so it becomes the right side AND adds poof.

Kitacon IV: This was so fun to wear! Despite being a full corset, it was really comfy if HIGHLY impractical for farming! The basket of mini eggs went down very well haha
Need to fix the hemline on the skirt a bit because I rushed it, and so its a bit squiffy and droopy

Gemucon 2013: Will be rewearing this with MadameLapin as Ann and Moonlily as Rick.

Harvest Mooooooon <3 Popuri is so cute.
Hopefully all the boys will hand you flowers and eggs (could be worse I never got Mary and her deadly mushroom obsession)

Journal

ALL of the sewing later (Posted 4th April 2012)

No really, ALL OF THE SEWING
The skirt is done! It's soooo long, I will end up tripping over it at some point but it's done 8D

As much as I love handstitching, it does take forever :C I reckon this skirt took at least 10-12 hours to do in total

Minor setback (Posted 2nd April 2012)

Tried on my skirt yesterday, and it's 2" short. HAVE I GOTTEN TALLER???
Eitherway, said skirt couldn't be made longer without looking terrible, so bought some cheap heavy cotton and a really cute new pattern. Hopefully this one will go better!

Shirt done (Posted 1st April 2012)

Yaaaaay
Got a bit of fixing to do on the collar so that it stays up (interfacing is my enemy) but so proud of this. I've never been able to make poof sleeves before so this is a big step for me :)
I hate gathering. The amount this shirt needed was ridiculous. What kind of farmer wears such a frilly shirt? Or a corset????

Obligatory bad quality photo of progess~

Shirt (Posted 29th March 2012)

Started remaking it as the one I made went all wrong and it was just easier to start all over. Will probably use the old shirt for Thumbelina XD
Currently having a mini-war with the sleeves as they keep going too poofy or not poofy enough.
Also have collected a mini army of easter chick pompom things.

Not sure if happy (Posted 20th February 2012)

Finished the corset today. I like the corset itself, I'm pretty proud of it. I'm just not sure if I'm happy with how it looks ON me XD
It does wonders for my posture though, no slouching for me!

The picture is terrible, I apologise profusely.

Progress (Posted 8th January 2012)

Corset pretty much done, I just need to put the boning in and hem the top. Will probably go with plastic this time as it's easier to cut than steel/metal.
Skirt is all done
Top is well underway~
