|Time Taken :||20 hours|
|Some friends are planning to cosplay from this and I take dibs on SJ!|
She has always been my favourite scout!!! :D
POST CON THOUGHTS
I LOVE THIS!!!! :'D
A definite rewear is planned so more friends can join me at a later date ^^
Not the best outdoorsy cosplay so I plan to line the skirt and I wanna redo the hiproll anyways :P Thought I was gonna freeze in this but I was fine ^^ Looked pretty for outdoor pics XD Too bad its the other side of the year as some more outdoor pics would be wonderful.
I really wanna make the belt for my next wear as I would like to make another accessory for her just for fun!
If you want to know how the tiara is made just PM me :P They're really easy! :D
Worn to J-con 2012, Gemucon 2013, J-con 2013 and once again at Kitacon 4!
After years of love and being worn alot rather that retiring her I am in the process of giving her a good tidy ^___^
Crystal! (Posted 17th January 2015)
After a whole year of retirement due to her sorry state I decided its time for a good tidy. Gave her a good clean and next would be to improve the skirt and fix loose stitching.
Nearly there!!! (Posted 10th September 2012)
Just gotta sew the shoulder rolls on and generally neaten/iron the fuku and thats everything DONE!!!
Almost done! :D (Posted 7th September 2012)
Accessories completed last weekend. Got some boots. Not perfect but they have heels and laces and are ankle boots so theyll do :P
Just got the skirt to hem, shoulder rolls to finish and sew the bows and DONE!!!
Accessories! (Posted 1st September 2012)
The tiara is drying now and will just require a layer of PVA glue and add the gem. It is made of craft foam and has a layer of card under it for sturdyness. It works really well and is pretty sturdy. Tried it on with spirit gum and with that and some hair pins near the just by the ears it would just do the trick to keep it on securely ^^
The gem and the hair tie balls are made of fimo and should be done baking very shortly!
Chocker is complete and wearing the earrings right now.
The gloves are very nearly done! 1 more cuff to add!
Fuku almost dooone!!! (Posted 14th July 2012)
The front bow is pinned and needs proper attachment, and the back bow needs sewing too and the sleeve rolls need making too. Apart from that the skirt needs shaping and hemming.
The gloves are making good progress too but would need more green fabric for the cuffs. One of the bases is about done and the other is tack sewed and will need a good sewing over with white XD no way anymore lycra is being touched by my sewing machines XD oh geez!
If you are wondering, the bow and the front of the collar are sewn into place but Im not to keep of the poppers under skirt idea so the back of the collar is loose and I simply put the fuku on like a swimsuit and pop my head under the collar :) easy!
Leotard almost done and yay earrings (Posted 16th June 2012)
Earrings arrived yesterday and they are gorgeous and the leotard just needs a little hemming then onto the skirt/hip roll :)
Just pissed off as I was outbid with the boots ¬¬
However, I am happy that the leotard is just enough to be slipped on and off without any poppers or zippers :) Just need to use some eyes and hooks for the collar :)
Boots and earrings :D (Posted 10th June 2012)
Made a start on the leotard yesterday evening and will slowly work on it for the next week and plan to buy some fabric for the skirt and collar tomorrow.
Ordered the earrings without any trouble and bidded for the boots ^____^
I want those boots so much even tho no doubt they'll require some endurance training before wearing the costume in full.
Brooch (Posted 4th June 2012)
Found some left over fimo clay while tidying my sewing work area this evening and decided to make a start on the brooch.
Been baked and already got it's fist coat of paint. The colour is Viridian Green and I LOVE that shade! Happens to be the shade I am looking for for the fuku :P
Lalala research (Posted 31st May 2012)
Being researching this on and off for ages.
I always love looking at other cosplayers and seeing what methods/fabrics they used. For SJ considering my body shape too I feel what would suit me best are:
-Viridian green fuku
There is a little cosplay event happening in town at the beginning of July so it would be nice to complete it for then ^^
Backbow (Posted 30th May 2012)
Due to boredom I took a nice stroll into town and decided its about time I do this! Being short on funds right now I had to start cheap so I brought some pink polycotton for the bows :)
Still got the front bow to do :)
