|I recently re-got into Pandora Hearts and I am in love again! (and also crying)|
I have wanted to cosplay Oz for a long time and when I found this version of him, I knew it had to be so.
This is gonna be a challenge! Aiming to get him done for the Kita V ball because wowowow it's so nice and perfect ;~; Should have a couple buds joining me~
Planned for the masq as well now! This is gonna biiiig project!
I'm being joined by at least InfiniteJester as Alice and Whitewraith as Ada in the masq+ball as well! We gon look so fab
There will be definite improvements in the future such as details I didn't have time to make fancier looking, some I messed up on and said "oh well" and some I didn't get to add, but for now this is completed! I'm very excited to wear this with my gorgeous friends ;w;
just the last bits left! (Posted 23rd March 2014)
I finished up the jacket today, finally! I was initially not too happy with it as the last bits I added on kinda made it look worse, but after trying everything on I feel better!
I had started on the boot decs, but turns out I asked for the wrong amount of ribbon so I'll be going off to buy some more again (I hate going to the same shops and asking for the same things!!) But from my tester boot, it was fairly easy to attach the rose and ribbon thankfully.
Just gotta make the hat (cry) and see if I have enough untarnished white fabric left for the random white-and-rose bunch and I'm done!
it is mostly done (Posted 13th March 2014)
I have spent about 5-6 hours on my damn jacket today, and I have finally gotten the top part 90% done!
FWAAAAAH but hardest part of the costume DONE my friends. It just needs to hold up while I sew the skirt onto it and I think I'm good! I could realistically finish this jacket tomorrow.
So far so waaah (Posted 12th March 2014)
Despite how it looks, I have been making progress on this!! I started working on it a few weeks ago but nothing seemed to be going right (basically I made the top of the jacket too big and now it hates me but hopefully I can fix this) though I feel a bit more confident about it now.
I have my wig now and cut it and such, just needs fluffing and I'll add the lil' faux-ahoge on Friday after wearing the wig for Nagisa.
For the jacket, as said before, the top of it is all cut out and such but by no means complete. It's sewn together and I have added the cuffs to the sleeves but the sleeves are too long I noticed after adding the cuffs (and the sleeves are also part of why the coat sits awkwardly...I see seam ripping in my future). I finally, after weeks of planning and worrying, cut out the long part of the coat today and it's near perfect! Just a bit too long but that is easily sorted. I cut out the lining for it too but it still needs shaping. Sadly, I will not have time to add the ruffles at the bottom of it for Kita )= But it shall be done in the future! As will the second linging. I need to buy more white fabric but I will not have enough to do this as it takes quite a large amount sadly.
In short, things are coming along. Thankfully this costume is not as overly-fiddly as it looks when it comes to details.
