|My love for the Sonic world kicked back in recently and decided to choose a female character to cosplay. It was between Amy Rose and Rouge, and after some makeup tests and feedback from friends, Rouge won.|
I like her character, she's sassy and independent (and I love how she and Knuckles act towards eachother.)
I'm still losing weight right now and hoping to get more confidance in cosplaying curvy characters.
I aim to make the majority of this, so a lot of new things to learn!
Hoping to do this for the Saturday of Kitacon

Updated makeup test (Posted 28th November 2013)
Decided to do another makeup test along with the new styled wig and the ears. The lighting is very poor so the wig doesn't look as fluffy as it should be. Also using a thick hairband for the ears for the moment until I can get a thinner one.
Still to do:
I'll be working on the wings in January, and hopefully get the suit sorted in the next month.
Boot covers (Posted 21st November 2013)
Finished the boot covers all in one day!
Armour (Posted 12th November 2013)
Worked on the armour today. Used a paper heart template to cut out 3 sheets of craft foam before using PVA glue to stick them together and trimmed off any excess craft foam. Next I cut out the PVC fabric, adding 1 inch around the sides so the curves can be added. Used craft glue to stick the craft foam and PVC together, then used hot glue to stick and fold the curves of the fabric to keep the shape looking smooth. I used model card for the white area, but planning to use worbla instead.
Wig (Posted 28th October 2013)
Wig arrived today so I quickly styled it by trimming it a bit and using hair spray to get the ends to flick out more. I'm still a beginner with wig styling, but its looking a lot better than it did at the start. Added the ears to see how it looks so far, still need to tidy them up.
Ears (Posted 17th October 2013)
Finished the ears! Luckily had leftover fleece from Sylveon and bought felt yesterday. Added some wire to keep them up right. Need to either get a smaller headband or use hairclips. Ordering the wig tomorrow.
Begin! (Posted 15th October 2013)
I've been planning how to go about making this cosplay, some easier than others, but majority of it isn't so bad. Before Christmas I plan to:
I'm leaving the catsuit and wings til January as I'll have more free time and enough time to research how to go about making these. I have made wings before, but they were made from craftfoam, so aiming to make them out of fabric and wire hopefully. I'm hoping to lose enough weight by January/February before I start the catsuit. I've never made a catsuit before so this will be a new learning experience. I have however found strapless catsuits online if it doesn't go well. Even if I do end up buying it instead, I still aim to make everything else.
I luckily found spare fleece fabric I can use to make the ears. Just need to get some felt for the inner ears and thats the ears sorted. I'll also be ordering the wig at the end of the week and should arrived next week!
