|In an eventual plan to do all of her dresspheres. Starting with my favourite <3|
Hopefully for Kita 2014!
I only like this cosplay in parts (Posted 18th March 2014)
We have sleeves now. Although, they're pretty terrible. But they're hidden under stuff, so I'm not sure I care =p
And yeah, I like the bodysuit on it's own.

Proud of this so far, especially since I'm not great with props =) So close to being finished with everything as well. Bring on Kita!!
I'm not sure I have much to say about this (Posted 15th February 2014)
But here's some obvious progress on the body suit (that's what I'm calling it).
The sword is well on its way. I need to buy some more wood glue (seriously, it used a whole bottle so far =/) then sand like hell and paint. I'm mainly doing it on my weekdays.
Elsewise, the shoes are somewhat half done. Just need to add on the decorative bits. Wig has been bought, but will need some styling.

I had a bit of a moment where I didn't want to bother with this cosplay anymore, so I lost over a week of time, but never fear, I'm in cosplay chess, so now I have motivation again!
I've now made the basic shoe covers. I still haven't bothered to sew the bodysuit bits together, but I'll find the time eventually. Also made the gloves, because let's be honest, they were easy. And I hate making gloves.

Have finished the leggings and the shorts today, so well on my way, and also really loving how it's going so far =)
The main body piece still needs to be sewn to the red shorts, but they're almost done. Which leaves me boots, arm pieces and a few bits and bobs. Oh, and I need to buy the wig still. And make the sword...
The aim is to get all the sewing done by the end of January (if possible) leaving me 2 months to finish my other 2 Kita cosplays and make the sword =)
Good beginnings (Posted 6th January 2014)
Made a fine start on this yesterday (determined to not leave everything to the last minute).
All the fabric for this cosplay is lycra (of some sort) because I thought stretchy stuff would be easiest. I mean, I need to match the leggings with everything else, and they're much easier to make with stretch.
Anyway, I started by throwing some steel grey (perfect colour imo) lycra over my mannequin and pinning the sides. Gave me a lovely base for the top, as you can see in the wonderful photo. After a bit of a faff with choosing a zip, I drew a line down the centre of the bodice (can I call it that?). I carefully cut part of this to give me a rough neckline. Pinned it all to shape and then cut out some yellow lycra to match the curve.
Also got started with the leggings. Cut 2 rectangles each of grey and brown, sewed them up (with a shiny strechy stitch!) then carefully top-stitched white bias binding on the top. Suddenly discovered that she has silly red triangles on her leggings, but that's fine, I need to pin the leggings to size, then I can put the triangles on, sew it up and done =]
