Journal

Remake - Complete (Posted 26th February 2010)

So I figured I'd wear Sheryl for midlands and set about making tweaks to her before I wore her (Yes, I never took her in the end. That bow would of been killer on the trains, and I was very tired. Zombie Sheryl is never a good look T^T)
Anyways, I got around to remaking the choker, the armband, as you've seen the skirt, bow and tassels. I've lost weight since Fuyucon so I had to adjust the bodice alot (And it still needs taking in!!) The gold bits on the straps need replacing too. I was intending to remake the bodice but I've decided to keep it, it matches the new stockings so perfectly and I really like it anyways.

I'm planning on buying a petticoat for another cosplay which I will use for Sheryl too, also the gloves I have in white, and I'm just going to cheat and dye them. I've lost my patience with hand stitching gloves =.=; I'm hoping to take her to Kita, maybe Minami and whenever I'm needed really!
I'm so excited to wear her again, I'm much happier now :D

Finished Skirt, Bow and Tassels (Posted 9th January 2010)

Finally finished the reamke! It looks so much better in my opinion. The skirt is all hemmed now. The picture shoes without the petti. I think it look better without, I might consider taking it but I think because Ive used so much fabric for the skirt it poofs out enough XD Im so proud of the lilac part of this ;-; I just need to consider remaking the bodice or not. I think I will though. BACK TO FABRICLAAAND <3

New Skirt (Posted 8th January 2010)

Ive made the new skirt and petti to give it more volume, only problem is because I've used duchess satin its pretty heavy. I need to get another metre of the netting to poof it out more. I need to hem the skirt also but I've ran out of thread but I also need to wait until I have the extra layer of net under so I dont hem it too short (Ive dont that mistake before)! As you can see the skirt is much too long at the moment. So for now I can leave Sheryl and move onto other costumes.

P.S I dont have a weird thing for dressing up my dummy in bras incase you were all wondering, I have a perfectly logical reason for it >_>;;

Bow mark 2 (Posted 1st January 2010)

Ever get the feeling youve made something too big? Yeah. Oh well I LOVE MY NEW ARSE BOW IT KEEPS SHAPE JUST HOW I WANTED <333333

Ive used my euphie duchess satin (Lol woops) and BUCKRAM for my bow. The trails are more satin and lining fabric. I should probably finish my midlands cosplay first but I was too keen to make a bow :_: I'm so happy how its turned out. It's really heavy mind you, this'll be fun attatching to the skirt!

For me not to forget (Posted 4th December 2009)

Just a to-do and what I need to get so I dont forget or lose the postick notes (AGAIN D<)

-Remake skirt, add a petticoat for more volume. Layer of Chiffon over the top?
-Buttbow remake. Add more interfacing/craftfoam/stuffing/buckram/SOMETHING to make it more sturdy. Remake tassles to make them more tassely. Maybe add Chiffon tassles for an extra something something ;D
-MAKE DEM GLOVES
-REMAKE DAT CHOKER
-Armband. Use thinner fabric for ruffles. Find better way of attaching to me.
-MIGHT have to remake top, need to compair to new socks
-Become a Diva <3 LOL

Fuyucon + Updates (Posted 4th November 2009)

I hada great time at Fuyu as Sheryl, I got recognised alot more than I thought I would! Thanks guys <3

Now for the updates:
New socks bought, theyre over the knee and perfect for Sheryl (Thanks to Fi for finding these for me) The colour is excellent too. I just need to add ruffles and the red onto them.

I want to remake the skirt to make it longer so the petticoat can go under without lifting the skirt up TOO much. The butt bow tassels are going to be remade, and the buttbow itself I'm going to make poofier :3 Needs new Armband and choker aswell. Oh man I need to finish the gloves aswell D;

Finished! (Posted 21st October 2009)

Finished adding velcro to everything, and the hairclip is painted. For when I rewear her though I'm adding more volume to her buttbow!!

Microphone Finished (Posted 19th October 2009)

Nearly finished everything. Well all the ruffles for the stockings are done, choker and armband have velcro on them. Only thing left to do now is to bake the hairclip and paint it.

And make the gloves. I'm not to fussed if I dont have them done for Fuyu, I'll have them done for minami at least. Bah gloves are REAL bitches to make! D8<

Microphone (Posted 14th October 2009)

Testing, 1, 2, 3!!

Haha base is complete was sooo easy to make <3 I really love it though x3 Though my glue gun broke so dad lent me his, it smells really funky O_o I was gonna keep it but I've deicded to go buy myself a new one ...
Just needs pva sealing and some acrylic and it'll be done. I shall do that later today : D

Made from:
Craft foam
Hot Glue
Part of a mop handle : D

12/10/09 (Posted 12th October 2009)

Bodice is pretty much done, I've just gotta stitch the ribbion down. Ive taken it in loads so it looks alot better on.

Socks have been taken in loads too, they just need the gathered bit and ribbion added.

Mic is cut out, needs foam detail, then pva then paint.
Armband is almost done just needs velcro on it.

Things to do:
Choker
Gold bits on tassel (On bodice)
Sew shizz on stockings
Microphone
Velcro on Armband
GLOVES OF DOOOOOM

Photo of finished bodice, it looks really gawdy in the pictures, I dunno why. Its not that bad. Actually its pretty cool, Im proud of it. THEM DAMN RED VEINS TOOK AGES TO DO D8; But I love it <3

I think I'm going to buy some dress netting at the weekend to stick in my arse bow to make it stand out more. I dont like it so flat and interfacing isnt strong enough. That wont take long to stick in though =]

Pictures (Posted 4th October 2009)

Progress photos from yesterday.

Things to do:
Fit socks MORE!
Ruffle top bit MORE >8D
Add garters
Fit bodice MOOOORE D8<
Attach arse bow

Productive day (Posted 3rd October 2009)

Phew! What a day! I've been sewing since 9am to well 10:20pm! I've got loads done though.
Skirt and petticoat are finished, by gosh its SO POOFY 83
Buttbow is also done, I got the tassels right yay! Also managed to fit the stockings and hem them so theyre nailed aswell. The bodice has had LOADS of work on it, all thats left to do is to add the red thin stripes down it (ive put the big one on the front) add the boning aaaand add the white ribbon to the front.

Not much left to do now aside from the chokers, and the mic aswell as her hairclips. Oh and the gloves. I hate gloves!! D8< Buuuut good day was good (Y)

Photos up tomorrow!

Bodice (Posted 20th September 2009)

Big thankyou to CrystalNeko for helping me out ALOT on this.
Thanks Fi : D No way I'd of done the basics of it well without you helping!

All I need to do is hem it, put the red strips down it and add boning. Then we're done with that! Pictures when it's finished :3

Wig + Earrings (Posted 19th September 2009)

Earrings are taped on [Lol] until I can adjust them to clip ons!

Wig is styled, its fun posing as sheryl, shes so sassy but awesome! <3

Earrings (Posted 3rd September 2009)

Yeah im being a cheat and buying them, I tried making them from fimo but they looked cruddy and finding the right jems in the right colours/shape was prooving to be a pain. These are pretty though right? I dont have my ears piereced so I'm going to mod them a bit. There were a pair on Ebay which are clip on but they were the wrong colour =[

Zomg fat shoes : D (Posted 26th August 2009)

I bought platforms!!! Lordy i dont need the height but I LOVE the shoes <3

Also they will be reused for like 5/6 cosplays so I dont mind buying them : D

Finished wig! (Posted 8th August 2009)

I HATED cutting the bangs, i loved the wig how it was but it was way too long for sheryl ;-; So here is new updated wig with front fringe! : D

Wigs all done now, yay for buying a pre coloured wig >8D

Wig arrived! 8D (Posted 6th August 2009)

Hur hur hur its looovely <3 Such nice quality! Its a shame the fringe is UBER long D: Therefooore it needs a trim, shots with it on while fringe is way too long!

With and without flash : D [Left im a lil too happy my wig arrived...]

Apologies for me looking rough, got home from work when i took these D:

I dont wanna cut the wig really because its so nice, but it does need trimming >.<

Butt Bow (Posted 4th August 2009)

Ive started my butt bow, most of its just folded/pinned. I didn't realise how difficult those folds in the tails were gonna be, I cant get the two to be the same D: But i need to unpin them to line it anyway so I'll work out a way to do them the same. This is mainly for piccies :3

Wig! (Posted 23rd July 2009)

Bought this wig I've wanted for ages *_* It's so pretty!! <3 I cant wait for it to arrive 8D
