|Indeed, I was also hooked by the idea of Lady Oscar... so hopefully I can work on this costume.|
The amount of time I guess I'll spend on this one is probably gonna be more relaxed as I am in no real hurry to rush through this one. I think it'll be all about finishing off my sketches and then looking into the details before starting the main costume fabric cuts.
She is finally in progress because my wonderful girlfriend surprised me with the jacket as her A2 project for Textiles!! It looks wonderful and the embroidery is all hand-done because the machine she tested with... broke X'D
So hopefully I shall be able to do a Rose of Versailles shoot this summer whilst it's still sunny, I've already a location in mind and have already started ebay-ing for other parts of my costume.
Watch this space ^^
So now (Posted 21st April 2013)
Her wig has arrived and nightshadowfall delivered my jacket to me. A couple of small changes need to be made to the fit but it's absolutely lovely. So much hand embroidery!! <3
I have my eye on a pair of boots that seem perfect and then I shall be buying white jodpurs and then finally it'll be the accessories.
I honestly can't wait for this costume
And so a new costume begins (Posted 30th April 2011)
I changed my mind from my original plan of doing her white uniform, instead opting for her blue, no particular reason behind it though.
Oscar is going to be a summer project / something ongoing as I haven't particularly got any specific event I'd like to wear her to in mind, it'll all really depend on when I finish working on her.
I've sorted pretty much all of where I'm getting the different elements of her outfit from, except from her wig. That I'm taking my time over because I think I'm going to style it myself.
I shall also be constructing her sword myself, my brain's already provided me with a couple of ideas on how it can be made (fingers crossed they'll work XD )
Keep your eye on here because it'll probably be where I'm updating my progress, probably more often than my deviantart... [ladyember101.deviantart.com]
Ja ne, Sasu x
