|Time Taken :||5 hours|
|A friend wants me to join him and showed me the design I couldnt resist! XD|
Costume is done :D I plan to go to a few shops in the near furture to buy some fake flowers.
I like this cosplay alot! A cosplay I actually feel cute in and hoping Ill feel that way during the convention that day!
Eeeep!!! Dying to rewear this so bringing it to Kitacon :D My dog chewed up the basket sadly so might not be bringing any flowers unless I get lucky XD
Very nearly there! (Posted 27th February 2013)
The sleeves still need depoofing and gotta add a eye and hook or 2 to keep the corset even at the top but this is almost completed! ^^
Completed the corset today! Brought some lacing specifically for this a few weeks ago but couldnt find it so its been put together with a ribbon that came with some Christmas prezzie gift wrapping and it glided through the eyelets beautifully :3
Shirt 90% done! (Posted 20th February 2013)
Just gotta remove the tack stitches on one of the sleeves and get some bias take to make the collar ruffles neater as some of the fraying is quite visible. Also its drowning in the infinite amount of annoying loose threads XD
The sleeves are a bit too poofy so gonna finish the corset then shorten them in proportion.
Today's progress! The blouse! (Posted 17th February 2013)
Mannequinn looks like a snowstorm so layed everything on my (cat's XD) bed.
I have decided to make it from scratch. 2 meters of fabric cut and shaped by eye ^^ Ruffles and Poplin...quite reminiscent of my Ranka Lee cosplay a long time ago ^^
Started by shaping the main body of it. I have cut 2 rectangles and sewn them together. The neckline and armscyes were cut and the body was shaped to fit on the way. 2 more smaller rectangles were cut for the poofy sleeves and ruffled them to fit around the arm.
The ruffles for the neckline and armscyes are in progress now ^^ Then I can sew the thing together properly :D
During the uber epic cleanout of my bedroom I have found a better headband :D The one I used to wear at school and it looks nicer than the plastic thing I wore of Yuri XD
Ordered this wig this week ^^ (Posted 14th February 2013)
Plus I have some eyelets and bias tape for the corset. ound some white cotton that would work well for the shirt. Can make a start with it soon but will need a little more for the sleeves ^^
Gonna race and try and get ALL the sewing done before the wig arrives ^^ gonna be a fun challenge XD
Possible wig...? (Posted 30th December 2012)
So cute ^^
Corset and skirt ^^ (Posted 30th December 2012)
The skirt is an old one I own that I love and would like to wear more :) Think I lost weight so I gotta take it in a little bit :3 I will also be reusing my Yurippe headband without the bow ^^
I had some black fabric about which was just enough for the corset :D Gonna need some bias take, ribbon and eyelets in order to complete it ^^ Almost done! Would like to pin it to myself for some photos but Im gonna add some separate panels for where im gonna attach the eyelets. Man, eyelets are annoying to put in >.>
Im gonna take a look at ebay in the near future for a wig and I also plan to look around charity shops to see if I can find a decent shirt ^^ or I can make one cheaply :)
