Description
From a previous project, I ended up having a fair bit of red taffeta left over which I had been wanting to use up for ages but had no clue what... until I saw this version of Sheryl Nome and thought, oooh there's a potential! Plus I had a suitable wig from another cosplay I was planning ;D

However, I still wasn't too sure as it was one of those plans where it would be nice to wear it to something but I wasn't driving to start it for anything in particular. This changed when I found out at Minamicon, that one of my friends was planning to gather a 'Sheryl army' and I still needed another cosplay to fill the cosplay plan gap >8) Oh yes I thought ^O^

Depending how time goes, I may or may not make the mask but omg, a red dress with pretty gold pink hair!! 8D yes please!

Iron on gems (Posted 2nd January 2014)

To add that pretty bling to the dress, I used iron on gems in 3 sizes.

I may need to press them down harder next time as they didn't quite all stick down properly and may need to add more to make it more fabulous ;D

Double layer (Posted 2nd January 2014)

I had no idea what fabric to use for that brown part of Sheryl's dress that would look elegant and sparkle. After some time searching, I still couldn't find the perfect thing X<

But one day when I was looking round in a fabric shop, I got hold of some brown chiffon and draped it over some sparkly mess fabric which actually ended up looking quite nice :) It's a bit difficult to see the stars but I'm happy the effect is there!

Goes to show sometimes it can be great to experiment with fabrics to see what cool effects u could possibly get :)

Base dress (Posted 2nd January 2014)

Made the base dress in a week using red taffeta ready to be blinged up :)

Sheryl wig (Posted 2nd December 2013)

A long while ago I purchased a wig which I was planning to use for Sheryl or even Kirakishou. When it came to me, gorgeous colour but it was probably 20cm too short for either but I kept it anyways. Another time I purchased a creamy peach wig for a Toko Murasame cosplay. Again it was beautiful but I felt it needed a little volume. However, getting a second wig to weft was going to be expensive so this is where the the first pinkish wig came into play ;D

I completely destroyed the pink wig and wefted everything into the longer peach one. I was a little concerned at first whether this will make the colour go weird but it came out looking rather pretty!! <3
