Confused about the orangeish hair but you did a fab job on the outfit, creating it from scratch. good use of bold colours and it looks good on.

Its not orange. The wig is blonde. The right blonde for Rikku. Thanks.

@Platinum - the pictures make the wig look darker than it was. It was more of a sandy colour :)

I think this is now my favourite costume of yours (although I'll always love your Feena!) All the photos of it have come out amazing, I wish I had seen it in person. It looks so well put together and the colours/fabrics are awesome.

It suits you a lot (and looks like you were having fun in it!), you must be really proud of this :)

Getting There (Posted 5th February 2009)

I'm really happy with how this is turning out. :) I have to finish off the details on the gloves and I have to adjust some things on the suit and get the wig. But all the big bits are nearly done, leaving the sewing on of the silver studs. ^___^

I love my sword.

Practising poses is good fun too. :D

Making progress (Posted 23rd January 2009)

So ew've been making plenty of progress on this lately. I'm really loving this costume!
I love my sword, even though its not perfect. Its turning out really well for my first prop (I think) and the painting is nearly complete. I have to do another few layers of silver, and the silver detailing.
UHM.
The main... "outfit" is nearly finished too. I have to make the gloves, and add some details to the boots for them to be finished. Then once thats done, its the arduous sewing on of the silver button... things.
And the wig. Can't forget the wig. V. important! But yes. Progress!

Sword (Posted 15th January 2009)

So I started the sword today and have discovered two things.

1. Making props isn't as scary as I thought and just like a costume, its a lot simpler when you break everything down into chunks. And it helps when you're useing the same method your friend has used! :D
2. Paper maché is a lot of fun! Doing it make me feel like a kid again! XD

Right! So far, I have the cardboard base skeleton over a dowling rod. And I've put on the first layer of paper mache. I estimate needing to do four or five layers. :]

Progress (Posted 14th January 2009)

So like, the shorts have been finished, aside from the silver studs (which are on everything and therefore being done last!) Also the collar has been done though... I'm in two minds about it. It looks fine and fits, but the neck is really too high. And due to the length of the zip, its actually kind of hard to do anything about it. But I'll have a think.
Next is the sleeves, shoulder pads and gloves.

On the way! (Posted 10th January 2009)

This now looks like a throw back from some forgotten era! Seriously, if I went out wearing this as it is now, with some rollar skates, a big wig and make up, people might think I was from Starlight Express!

Anyway!
Today was productive. Yellow strips have been sewn to the front of the catsuit, meaning I now have to do the sleeves and button things for the catsuit to be complete.
Sewed the white stripes onto the shorts, and have plans to make the... waist belt... thing tomorrow. :B
Leggings were also done today and are finished, complete with red triangle on either side. ^^ Boots have been spray painted black (originally tan) and need to have lots of stuff added to them.

... Have I mentioned what great clevage this cosplay gives me? 8D

And So It Begins... (Posted 9th January 2009)

So I started with crap loads of fabric. Got scared of the cosplay and looked into commissioning it.
Got as far as getting a quote before I took another look and realised it wasn't that scary.
Made the bodysuit using a Kwiksew pattern and grey parque material. Added a zip. Part one done.
Made the bikini shorts from red t-shirt material and another Kwiksew pattern (I <3 Kwiksew). Then the shorts from stretchy... god knows what in burgandy colour another kwiksew pattern.
We have something that looks like it might be wearable. XD
