I'm eternal-aeris. I'd appreciate it if you could not use my artwork as a reference and instead take it down, please. I actually go on deviantART every day, so you could have sent me a note. Regardless, I'd prefer for you to not have it on your Cosplay Island page. Thanks.

Journal

Well... (Posted 15th June 2009)  

So it never got finished in time and the boots died miserably, but I do have this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4PjT7bSJDs
Just so you know, I did play a not in the end. xD

I haven't given up on this cosplay by the way. &lt;3

Update: Dress 28/3/09 (Posted 29th March 2009)  

So the body of the dress was finished about a week ago, then I got really ill and couldn't finish it. D:
I ended up getting a lesson on hemming from my mum. xD At least it's done now.

Next to do:
Sew on the green line at the bottom of the dress.
cut and sew the pattern onto the chest of the dress.
Order some bottle green fleece off of Ebay.
Order some green hotpants/panties off of Ebay. (Yeah, it's that low. ;o; Pervert alert?)

Update: Dress 11/3/09 (Posted 11th March 2009)  

Thank god to Lorraine for taking a trip to Trago Mills. >W<
We found the perfect stretchy material and such! And Lorraine managed to make the basic dress in about an hour an half - two hours. @O@ All I need to do now is trim and hem the bottom.
I'm looking about for green for the dress soon and I need to find a place for good green fleece for the hat.

Update: 1/3/09 (Posted 1st March 2009)  

The undershirt was brought from Primark a little while back, as were the skates from a charity shop.

So, skates ARE aloud in Expo but it may be better using shoes... If I get the time I may do up a pair of skate trainers as well as my skates and if I fail at learning how to rollerblade before May then it shall just be the trainers.

The rollerskating is going a bit... Meh. I lack the confidence for it and keep falling over. xD Thanks to Rwylin_Ni for catching me though.~ She's been helping me alot!

Also, due to time restrictions I'm going to be doing the Ext. version another time and work on Gum's casual JSR outfit. :3 (Reference attached)
