|Time Taken :||25 hours|
|Been watching Slayers at the anime and manga society and been wanting to cosplay Lina but her costume was way beyond my skills at the time. As soon as I saw the 'Otome no inori' video my immediate reaction was that her costume there was cute and even simple enough for me to make.|
If I am still intreasted in Slayers in a few years time then I might consider making her adventure outfit. I just dont wanna do anything else that is pink at the moment.
Status-retired, until I make her travelling outfit where hopefully Ill be getting a wig for. Might also remake parts of the costume too.

Better photos soon (Posted 7th March 2009)
My local anime club will be holding a cosplay photoshoot/games day at the end of the month so hopefully I'll be cosplaying Lina if my other cosplays are not done yet.
Skirt troubles...oh noes!!!! (Posted 20th February 2009)
My skirt was that tiny that my friend bullied me into remaking it. I had no money and my EMA hasnt come in so my mother had to buy the fabric for me. i was given £20 for tommorrow, £5 for entry, £10 to spend and £5 for pockey :p
Other than that all i need to do is neaten the leotard and thats it. Dad has got me the shoes today. Not accurate but will do.
MAY BE DONE TONIGHT!!!
Almost there! (Posted 19th February 2009)
All I need to do now are to finish sewing the skirt to the back of the leotard, neaten the trimming on the chest and remind daddy to get me those damn shoes!
Gloves again (and more progress) (Posted 18th February 2009)
Dyed and are drying right now. They currently look more purple than pink 0_0
As for the skirt I still need to shorten the netting and find the lace my brother hid from me. THE COSPLAYER'S BIGGEST NIGHTMARE-SKIRT TOO SHORT!
If I continue working how I have been lately I should get it done by tomorrow afternoon \^-^/
My dad said he'll try to get a hold of some suitable shoes at work tomorrow.
Not too much left! (Posted 18th February 2009)
Completed the anntenae, choker and fimo jewllery complete!
One week to goooo (Posted 16th February 2009)
Thinks thats everything. About half way now. Luckily I got a week off so I can focus on my cosplay now...as well as finishing tidying my bedroom ^^;
Gloves (Posted 6th February 2009)
WHY ARE THEY SO F***ING ANNOYING TO MAKE!!!! They sound so simple to make but they are not so simple to keep clean looking.
Done both of them but they are gonna need neatening up and dying.
I began the anklestaps a few days ago using lycra. Like the gloves, they will need a little neatening up and dying.
I have also finished the basic leotard. Need pink fabric for the skirt and bow. Will buy the fabric tomorrow while im in Nottingham with a few friends.
New beginnings (Posted 30th January 2009)
I have beenworking on this for the past week already. Progress is going slow (as always) but surprisingly well.
I began by making the gloves. I used my hands to trace on white lycra and the plan was to use my good 'ol trustly Lancelot to sew the sides of the glove and sew the fingers by hand. Part way through the first glove I had a huntch that something isnt right so yesterday I restarted them using a wooly gloves and use the rest of my arm at the same time due to the glove's lenghs. I plan to handstitch the fingers and use Lancelot for the rest of the arm. Will be dyed when complete. Hopfully that will cover a few pen marks ^_^
Second was the leotard. I began by sewing the side and when I tried it on it fitted surprisinly well but double-sided tape will be an idea to ensure it all dosnt slide down. Im relieved that 'they' wont bounce much when I do the Caramelladansan. I still need to get some pink fabric for the lining and the bow. Chest area will need another layer as its a bit transparent (and hopefully make 'them' appear a little smaller).
Made a start on the ankle straps. Just need resizing, hemming and dying. Simple ^_^
I simply brought a headband from Superdrug for £2 \^.^/
Im hoping to buy the pink fabric this weekend. According to my parents there should be a fabric place in Sheffield so I coud check that out. If not, its Mansfield.
