|I love Rias Gremory, she is my favourite character in the DxD series. I have decided to do her as a challenge, as i thought it might be challenging, and I just love her. |
She is so sexy and adorable at the same time and i would just love to take on a different type of character to what i normally would so it could help me out performing wise too.
Starting the skirt (Posted 14th July 2014)
Today I started making the skirt, I measured the skirt by using two of my own skirts as a template, one for the waist and one for the fullness of the skirt. Lets just say it was a little more difficult than I had planned! I stitched a little pocket along the waist band for the elastic and then threaded the elastic through, I am using quite a thick elastic this time, to make sure it's powerful enough. Annoying I couldn't find a thread similar to my material, so I had to use a brown, so I may switch it up if I find a red thread, as I have another 2-3 months to do this ^-^ my next step would be stitching the bottom of the skirt. Excuse the shabby photo!
Material (Posted 4th July 2014)
Yesterday I went out and bought my materials to begin my cosplay. All together it came to £11 something xD which was great as I got poly cotton and one pure cotton, which can be pretty expensive! I am looking so forward to creating this cosplay, compared to the others, as it's going to be a little more detailed I guess!
