|Despite the hype and the insane amount of spoilers my friends told me before I started watching, I'm enjoying Attack on Titan. Just finished and was tied between Mikasa and Petra cosplays. Opted for Mikasa this time, but a wig change and I guess I have both.|
Now, looking at it, seems like it would be a difficult one to make completely from scratch. I'll definitely buy the jacket (as they're cheap anyway) and more than likely all the belts too, but I'm gonna have a go at making the maneuver gear myself, plus scarfs aren't hard to make.
Delayed (Posted 14th March 2014)
Unfortunately, making Delphox is proving to be more time consuming than I thought, so making maneuver gear on time it going to be difficult. Therefore, to avoid stress seeing as I also have a college deadline within the week, I'm putting off being Mikasa until further notice. It will happen eventually, just not now. Sunday at Kita will end up being a re wear of Cardcaptor Sakura, or Haruka from Uta no Prince Sama. We'll see
Stuff is arriving, and I've started making! (Posted 17th January 2014)
So with only 1 day in the workshop so far and me using it to make my Delphox head as well as the maneuver gear, I didn't get a whole lot done, but I did get all the sides cut out and ready for the gear boxes. Want to see if I can get some working time in on Sunday afternoon too, so hopefully a bit more progress then. I want to get my swords done :D
Also things are arriving for the cosplay! The cloak and wig are here (might need to sort the fringe out a little though, keep poking myself in the eye -.-), just waiting on the belts and jacket now. Estimated for delivery before next Friday though, so should be getting them soon.
Shopping! (Posted 3rd January 2014)
Just ordered the wig and cloak. Monday I'll order the jacket and belts. Thinking into getting jodhpurs for the trousers for this one, as they're thin and will fit all the belts and boots around them quite easily.
