|I recently bought the artbook for the Arland games of the Atelier series, because I've loved the art style for ages but had never played the games. Finding the artbook cheaply made me finally cave and actually get into the series more than just OMG PRETTY|
The second I saw this outfit, I fell in love with it. The pastel hair, the flowery collar and cuffs and DAT MINI CAPE! It's so cute!
Having played some of the game, I can safely say I love Meruru, she's such an idiot <3
I plan to wear this as part of the Cosplay Chess at Kitacon!

1. (15/12) The past few weeks have been various stages of (figurative) sobbing over the top of the dress. It started out simple enough: cover a bra in lilac satin. Simple? Ha! I ended up using two pieces for each cup, carefully smoothing, pinning and re-pinning satin until I'd created a smooth surface with the curved seam down the middle. Then I had to sew it on without my curved needle :/

I'm trying to document how I make everything in this costume, so here's how I did the bloomers:

Bloomers all done! They were really simple to make and I'm really happy with how they turned out. So poofy!

I didn't intend to start this for a while but then I found some gorgeous fabrics where my friend works!
