Costume Information

General
Awards : London MCM Comic Con 2013 - Sunday Masquerade (Parade) - Judges' Choice Award (Best Progression)
Time Taken : 5 Months (not continuously)

Description
Like my Holo costume, there was a a bit of a learning curve in techniques and the use of different materials. It was fun to make, though at times, frustrating ^_^ However, I'm happy with the end result; I think my favourite part of the costume would have to be the armour. I'm happy with how all of the parts turned out :)

The Comic Con was, once again a brilliant experience, and it was incredibly fun to be there. I was also shocked to discover I had received a Judges' Award, though I had to leave to get home before the end of the Masquerade. Overall, a fantastic weekend. I hope everyone else who went enjoyed themselves too :)

Particularly loved the armour detailing on this! Your stage performance was full of confidence as well, I'm really excited to see what you make in the future.

To-Do List

Journal

Progress Entry #4 (Posted 12th October 2013)

The boots are just about done, just a couple of tiny adjustments ^_^. I wish I'd had a little more time, but nevertheless I'm happy with how they turned out :)

Progress Entry #3 (Posted 21st September 2013)

Getting there ^_^ The boots are nearly complete, just the upper armour on the right boot to finish, as well as a couple of touch ups and small adjustments. The capelet is complete; the arm and leg sleeves are just about complete too :)

I decided to not use the dyed wool, instead I chose a slightly darker wool fabric. The reason behind this was, when putting each colour up against the tunic and armour, the lighter colour, even though more accurate to the character, clashed, whereas the darker colour worked better :)

Hopefully, the vast majority of the costume will be done by the end of the month ^_^

Progress Entry #2 (Posted 31st July 2013)

Since the last progress entry, I've managed to find a way of getting the colour as accurate as I can on the wool, which is great ^_^ This will be done after the armour is completed. I've also managed to cut and paint all of the leather belting, as well as paint the belt buckles :)

For the armour, I've just about finished a vambrace (left), but I would say it's still a little work in progress :)

Progress Entry #1 (Posted 27th June 2013)

So far, the costume is going well ^_^ The tunic and fabric part of the boot covers are pretty much done, just a couple of adjustments to make; colour testing on the belts and buckles has gone well too :) The only issue I have at the moment is trying to dye the wool fabric the right colour, but it seems to be getting there, albeit a little slowly :)

Here we go again ^_^ (Posted 6th June 2013)

For my second costume, I had new ideas each day on what I wanted to do ^_^ Originally, I was planning on cosplaying Rokusho from Medabots, but after research and a bit of testing, found that I wouldn't yet be able to do it, but sometime in the future. Then I looked round and saw the Demon Diary series on my bookshelf ^_^. I had a couple of ideas in mind for cosplays other than Rokusho when I was researching, but never thought of cosplaying Erutis. I'm happy I did :)

At the moment, I'm looking at fabrics and buying swatches, as well as purchasing the fabric for the tunic. Looking forward to that arriving so I can get started :)

This is only my second attempt at making a costume, so if anybody has any tips or tricks, they would be kindly appreciated :)
