Thanks all :)

It's coming together, but I'm having to take a few shortcuts as time is running out!

Journal

Aftermath (Posted 30th October 2013)

Apart from nearly losing the hat in the river thanks to a strong gust of wind, this was a really fun costume to wear. And it seemed pretty popular with photographers too. The waistline needs adjusting, and the belt needs a tody up, but this will probably get worn again

Fat neck (Posted 17th October 2013)

Executive decision time. I will not be wearing a purple lace-trimmed choker. It's incredibly unflattering with my proportions, and makes me looks even fatter than I am. I don;t care if it means my costume is inaccurate, so :P

Weapons (Posted 6th October 2013)

I can't get this rifle looking even so-so. And with the weather turning, getting out in the garden to spray paint is looking less likely as the expo get closer.

Fortunately I;ve had a cunning idea! I'm going to make a Yordle Snap-Trap. I've already made a cardboard mock-up to test out. Now it's time to make a more sturdy, planned-out, version.

Lacy bits (Posted 26th August 2013)

Just spent an entire day sorting out the hem of the circle skirt, and the fake petticoat peeking out. So fiddly. So much fabric!

Templates (Posted 3rd August 2013)

I've made a template for the skirt from an old duvet cover and tried it on with my Belarus petticoat. It looks really long despite only just covering my crotch! But the official artwork has Barbie-doll proportions anyway. I failed to find ruffles, so looks like I'm buying some ribbon and getting RSI.

Next step - getting a bra I can turn into the top half of the dress.

Measuring and doodling (Posted 25th June 2013)

Doing prep work on the skirt at the moment. I think I've got the measurements, but until I make my newspaper practice template tonight we won't know for sure!

Boots (Posted 6th June 2013)

Although a lot of cosplayers wear knee boots for Caitlyn, upon closer inspection it seems like the original artwork has her in button-up gaiters. Those will be significantly less hassle to make. :D
