Costume Information

I've wanted to do Arshtat for a long long time ;a; I don't know if i'm ready to tackle such a big costume, but i'm definitely going to give it my best shot!

I'm going to try and get her done in time for May expo to enter in the Eurocosplay contest. I'm excited to use a lot of different techniques to make her as good as I can ;a;

That wig though... I already have the base wig and 3 clip in ponytails from the Arda wig sale (they had run out of wefts in the colour I needed at that point ;a; )I'm hoping that will be enough and that I won't have to order any more....

Ohmygosh! I'm a big Suikoden V fan and it's so rare to see it cosplayed! I really hope to see this at May expo <3 I'm sure you'll look epic :D

Ahh thanks! :D Suikoden is one of my favourite series ever ;a; I wish it had a bigger following! Hoping I can do her some justice, anyway! :D

Postponing! (Posted 23rd May 2014)

Due to unrelated events, i've not been able to finish Arshtat for May expo. I really don't want to rush her as i'm planning on entering her in Eurocosplay, so i'm going to finish her for Manchester expo instead!

Embroidery! (Posted 24th April 2014)

Sorry, no photos just yet, i'm too lazy to upload them from my phone >>

I've almost finished the embroidery on the skirt, and i've cut out the pieces for the shirt, but not the sleeves. I'd really like to have finished the purple embroidery by the end of the month, but if possible i'd like to have the white done too ;-; I'm planning on buying the fabric for the white embroidery tomorrow, and hopefully by then i'll have drawn out the rest of the purple embroidery onto their respective pieces! I'm a little behind where i'd like to be, but hopefully I can catch up to a decent point in the next few weeks ;a;

Lets go! (Posted 6th April 2014)

I'm still a little intimidated by this project, but we'll see how it goes! I want to get as far ahead as possible because may/june/july is going to be really busy for me as I'm attending may expo and japan expo, and moving inbetween them, so I have to get stuff out of the way fast ;a;

I've brought the wig already- I'm praying it will be enough. It's a bit of a monster!
