|SHOCK!!! A female anime costume choice! |
Finally decided on a costume for Minamicon's Retro theme. I'm hoping to make it from my vast stock of fabric (I'm happy that I used to work for a theatre). I plan to do the hair style in my own hair. I plan on making the earings.
The referance wasn't great so please excuse the quality of ref pics.
Dress is now complete. Made from a cotton/poly mix. It has lycra in it for comfort and ease of wear. Due to me lacking female curves I've adding in panels to help bring out Cassidy's shape.
I'm probarly going to improvise on the footwear. Really struggling to white thigh length white boots that I like or can afford.
This cosplay is now complete. I just have to set up a photo shoot since I haven't been able to find photos of her taken at Minamicon 15.
*Update Aug 2010*
I'll be wearing this as a TR grunt version for friday eve at Amecon.

Dress progress (Posted 14th March 2009)
Fianlly started sewing today. Quite quite alot done thanks to my lovely overlocker. I decided because I have no hips or boobs that I would choose a pattern that would shape me to a more female shape. Yes, it meant more talioring but hopefully it will mean that I'll look more like Cassidy. So it has extra pannels in to taper at the waist. I'm also making it such that if I have time I can make a corset to go underneath to really get the shape. I'm allowing room in my bust area to allow for padding.
Hopefully the end result will work.
Finally started (Posted 25th February 2009)
Have set up the pattern and have cut out the fabric. While I wait for pieces of Abel to dry I'll be putting this together. Go go, first female cosplay in a while.
