Costume Information

Will be wearing this with Gunstar as Polka and later with Silver when she makes Falsetto :D

this costume has so far taken me 4 months on and off :). It will now be worn for the london expo in May as part of the eternal sonata group :D

The wig has been commisioned from Sephnoir and looks amazing so big thanks to her :D. I never would have made the outfit if I'd had to style the wig myself as wigs terrify me lol xD

1/6/2010 Wore the costume to Expo and loved wearing it ^_^. Having a huge bow is fun! Rewearing it to Amecon 2010 as part of the eternal sonata group on the sunday, so have a few improvements to make, need to make the dagger for the side, some arrows and line the ankle covers. And also bring the top in as I made it last yr and appear to have lost some weight, as it insisted on falling down all day! After these improvements will drag my lovely Beksa-san to take some photos in a grassy meadow somewhere.

I think Viola must be one of my favs of the hour, I'm really into tribal themed clothing right now o_o

It was lovely to meet you my dear!

viola so far! (Posted 6th November 2009)

I keep being nagged at by Silver to actually do these things and she scares me when she nags so here goes

Started this in May and made the top, the hat, the collar, the skirt, the sleeves and the blue tights. Commisioned a wig from Sephnoir which was completed in august and which i will put photos up once ribbon is tied on :P. Was meant to wear it at Amecon but got ill :(
I did nothing until yesterday when I looked at it again and realised that there is still a lot of the small detailing to do, and the shoes need to be made. Luckily i bought some shoes in june which are perfect so will be modifying these. The bow and the arrows are currently being planned out by my OCD boyfriend who will tell me the best way to construct them and then will probably harrass/help me measure everything out meticulously. The current thoughts are 2 blocks of wood, holding two long thing strips of wood and foam in place. The wood we plan to bend into an angle over the next couple of months to get the right shape. no idea if this will work...

Anyway back to today.. Today I added the white detailing onto the tops of the sleeves and onto the tops of the tights/legging things xD
