Description
BECAUSE THERE AREN'T ENOUGH MIKUS IN THE COSPLAY WORLD DERPHERP <3

(I have no idea if I can finish this for memorabillia in time, but I'll damn well try..)

Idk, I just wanna do a Miku somewhere. ;^; And with my hideous sewing skills right now I just can't do anything complicated like some of her best costumes.. So I'll get some satin practise for now and see where I can go... ~_~


So I was staring around on some VOCALOID channels and I came across the Cendrillon video. I thought it'd be the one for me for several reasons:

1) I'll probably only be recognisable with a wig. And therefore will need a wig. MY FIRST WIG 8D
2) Looking at other cosplayers' ideas and cosplay shop sites, it's nice and simple, and will look good at any time of the year.
3) Cendrillon is an AWESOME word.


So yah. Behold my first ever fully 100% hand made cosplay. No more altering for me! C:

Finishing Touches! ^^ (Posted 6th April 2012)

So, I'm pretty much done! I finished the straps today. They're more floofy than feathery but I'm kinda allergic to feathers so myeh. xD

I've just picked up some fab white satin gloves, and the wig is on its way! :D
I'm so exciteeeeeeeeed!!!!!!!!!!!

RAAAAARGH (Posted 27th March 2012)

I finished most of the dress. ^^
Now all I need to do is find some feathers and gloves to rave around in.

And then it's save-up-for-my-first-wig tiem... Omai. C:

Oh dear god.. XD (Posted 25th March 2012)

So, in my excitement to get this dress up and running before next week, I've exploded and will therefore not be ready.. XD
*I sewed three frickhuge folds into the front of the dress. Unpicky.
*I sewed two panels together at the wrong fricken' edges. Unpicky.
*I sewed the shiny side on the inside for the back panel. Unpicky.

So yeah. Lots of unpicky and I've put it to one side until I'm less derped out. XD It looks a lot straighter and my seams are nicer now, so the previous mishap was a benefit at the least! <3

Choker (Posted 20th March 2012)

I finished off the choker today whilst I wait for my fabric. ^^;

I'm really proud of it! >w< Rest of the fabric should get here tomorrow..

DRESS NUBER TWO / Choker (Posted 19th March 2012)

So the fabric's on the way for the actual dress.. XD
Hopefully this will
A) Fit me
B) Not be quite so see-through
C) Not cling to every hideous part of my lumpy body. XD

I've also got some more fabric for the choker, and to make the rose. :3

Dre-- eer... L-lining (Posted 18th March 2012)

Okay, so today I finished off the main bulk of the dress. And it ended up being both too small and completely see-through... T-T

But nothing to worry about.. I'll just unpick the zip and use it as lining. :3 Only about 5 more hours of work and I should have the final dress ready.

Snippy Snip (Posted 17th March 2012)

M'kay, so my fabreek arrived today. C:
I've got my white satin which is about the size of my house, and some black satin for the ribbon... ^^;

All I've done now really is cut it all out... My scissors are hideously blunt so it's horribly messy so I might have wasted the fabric but I'll see how much I can salvage... C:
