Wee update (Posted 20th November 2014)
So I never got round to finishing this one... It's passable but I'm not calling it finished until the corset is completely covered in leaves instead of just the front, also the panties need leaves and the fastening for them at the side needs changed to be clips or hooks rather than laced up. Suitable boots need to be bought/made which I don't have the spare money for. The material I was using for the leaves is almost run out too so more of that needs bought first and foremost... aaaaand of course I can't find it any more. The cosplay gods have deemed this one to be unfinished until some vague point in the future.
Leaf madness and wiggage! (Posted 25th October 2012)
Currently in the middle of the most time consuming part of the cosplay, leaves! They look better than I could have hoped, and the glitter looks really good on them!
I'm really worried the corset wont arrive in time, if it's not here tomorrow then I'm fooked for Saturday (where the plan was to win £200 and therefore pay for the costume).
Not only that, but I'm also introducing two friends to cosplay at the same time, so while doing my own thing I'm pretty busy playing teacher/director for a Bane cosplay and fem-Freddy Krueger. Also helping my partner with his Vega Street Fighter cosplay, there's not enough time in the world!
