|I'm unsure which day(s) I'll be able to attend MCM this October so I wanted to do a costume that could be standalone without a group, in case I had to pull out and not come, or change the day I was coming, and Chi was perfect. |
I've gone with a simple, yet pretty dress from the kidnap arc (seen first in chapter 38). Using the color reference from the anime.

|Mock dress||Low||In Progress|

Shoes + screw up (Posted 24th October 2012)
Managed to pick up a pair of shoes that I can paint white today. They're not the right style at all, but there's not much I can do about that with such little time left available to me so they'll have to do.
The Screw up? I made the skirt a few inches too short oTL There's absolutely no way I can change it as I have no time to get more fabric, or sew it together - so I'll have to be Chii as if she never left the peep show? oTL
This costume doesnt want to happen ;3; (Posted 23rd October 2012)
Picked up the shoes from the post office today. COVERED in marks and scratches and what nots, thank you crappy ebay seller!

Sooo I had to take the skirt off of the bodice again to do a new technique that /should/ hopefully make it more poofy.. if it doesn't work I give up on this one!
Still need to style the wig, re-attatch the skirt, get shoes, persocom ears, and so on. I really am cutting it fine with this one~!

OK. So continuing from previous ramble: I don't like the length of the skirt, that needs to go up a few inches. The persocom ears I'm wearing there are made of paper, so don't take them seriously. The wig is waaaay too thin, even the fringe is disappointing. I could go on oTL

Wig has arrived. Contacts are en route. shoes are en route. Persocom ears haven't even been started. Wig needs styling. Sleeves haven't been done yet. Petticoat hasn't been done. Wig doesn't seem thick enough.
Fabrics (Posted 3rd October 2012)
Picked up all my fabrics today~! I got 4m of the white, which is wayyy too much - but I'd rather have too much than too little nad £5 a meter isn't bad. I can always find a use for white fabric!
Picked up some pink bias tape and a zipper, too.
Start~ (Posted 20th September 2012)
I'm currently half way through making up the mock dress just for my own purposes e.g checking I have the seams in the right places etc. I've realised I've not given the bodice enough length to do the V shaped waist though (darnit!) so it's a good thing I didn't go straight for the real thing!
I'm waiting to start university before I start with the persocom ears as I'd like to vacuumform them if it's possible (hoping my uni has a vacuum former, if not, I might make a DIY one or find another solution)
