You have the artbook? O.o Wow you are so lucky! I can't find it anywhere around where I live! *Wishes I could buy online now T-T* How expensive is it anyways? XD [Sorry I'm going off-topic! >o< But I'm considering asking my local comic store to order it if it's not too expensive ^^;;... I can't get any decent shots of Garnet's pattern! D8]

Finally managed to make a start on my Freya cosplay today. =) Just found the perfect coat on eBay, and as soon as that arrives I'll be off!

Also, it's more than likely that I'll only be able to attend expo on the Sunday. CrystalNeko, I'm sure I read you were being Garnet on Sunday? We'll definitely have to get pictures together!

Anybody else gotten any further with their cosplay(s)?

02 Jan 2008 - 23:171339
Yay! You've started Freya! =D That's so awesome! ^____^ And yup I'm doing Garnet for Sunday =3

I started Garnet's dress [FINALLY!]... Only... the bodice completely failed xD... Thankfully I started off with polycotton as I needed practise! Boy I did the right thing in choosing to make a practise bodice out of polycotton! XD... I'm now looking hard for a pattern... And that's failing too xD; [Been through almost all the pattern books TT_TT with no suitable patterns xD;]... Oh and I managed to get my hands on some bake and bend sculpey! Yay! [thanks to my dad who let me use amazon ^____^] I must have made a new record of failed attempts... I've made 5 failed attempts of the crown so far! XDDD

[Lol I've written a ridiculous amount of smileys in my posts! XD]

03 Jan 2008 - 20:251341
Awww noooo xD Shame about the failures CN, however it's great that you got some sculpey! =D Hope it goes well this time, lol! xD

03 Jan 2008 - 21:031342
what-ho? i return....yus well no mods done to zidders yet....i have no time or cash >__< NOOO!!!!

15 Jan 2008 - 23:391404
i should be doing a zidane ^^

Good news is that I have started on Garnet's dress, but I haven't done much yet

So far I have brought all the materials needed to make the entire dress, which is a good start. I have almost done the base of the skirt, though I need to take it apart and sew it again because I need to add about another metre of fabric to make the skirt puff out a little more. I haven't started on the bodice as I have no idea how to make it, but hopefully I will find a solution.

I got my crown comissioned because I was too lazy to make it myself, well actually I'm running out of time because I have about 3 costumes for AmeCon to make, so I think it is best to get the crown out of the way since hand sewing the green leaves on the dress will take forever!

And finally I brought a big octagon crystal which I need to buy a sliver chain from Claires, so I will have Garnet's pendant ^_^

@ Crystal Neko, I'm sorry to hear that your bodice and crown failed. If I can work a solution for the bodice or crown, then I will let you know.

Updated front page, and good to see you've made a start Ichigo-Chan!

Unfortunately my Freya coat still hasn't arrived... =/ Although I asked my Grandad about making the spear and he said he would! =D

@Ichigo-chan: Haha it's okay xD. I found the perfect pattern that I could use and so I'll get it right by using that pattern [as soon as I learn how to use one! XD] And for the crown I got some bake and bend sculpey [it was sooo expensive though! @_@] and so hopefully... it'll be okay when I bake it! XD
And wow! You have her pendant! =D That's so awesome! x3 I'm trying to figure out how to make it... cause the one I found was like £20 and on eBay which I'm not allowed to go on D=

@Freya: Wow! Your granddad is so nice! x3 Wish my granddad or dad would make props for me! XD My dad got a crafts qualification too ¬_¬ And I hope your coat gets to you soon!

Hmm... ask for my progress... I got none xD. I've been busy worrying about my science exam and been TRYING to revise [which I never did in the end xDD I just 'wing it' xP... Though the science exam was okay even with my lack of revision XD]. So yeah once I go into town to buy a pattern; get some foil for the crown to go on [the clay is sticky Dx]; buy 9 more metres of crepe back satin... I can work on my costume more! ^_^... Oh wait I remember... I managed to cut out the shapes of Garnet's armband XD... I just gotta hotglue the ends together as it's currently a strip of craft foam xD;; But that's the only progress I've done XDDD [I'm so terrible...]

16 Jan 2008 - 17:391413
I've now managed to get hold of all the material I need for my costume!!! yay! I'm just stuck trying to find burgundy tights to fit (I'm 5'10 ) and a decent wig thats the right colour.

Other than that, have found gold embroidery thread so I'm happy!!!

There is always room for cake
18 Jan 2008 - 23:461427

That is looking really good! I can't wait to see more progress pics.

16 Feb 2008 - 20:351631
I just wanted to drop by and let you know I'll be doing Kuja in May. Most likely both days, too.

(P.S. I'm called Rox on the London Expo forums, too)

16 Feb 2008 - 20:381632
Omg yay! 8D I'll update the front page in a sec~

I made my Freya hat today =) There's a pic in my gallery, although I've still got a couple of things to finish off on it.

05 Mar 2008 - 17:361866
...Are we allowed to double post here? xD

But anyway 8D My Grandad handed over my Freya spear to me yesterday! It's still not painted or anything but omg it's brilliant 8D I'll get some pics up soon!

18 Mar 2008 - 17:172061
I've actually got around to uploading a spear pic 8D Hopefully I can make some progress on my Freya cosplay with the upcoming Easter holidays~

Anyone else made any progress lately? xD

18 Mar 2008 - 17:192062
sewed buttons on, and making my pants this week!

There is always room for cake
18 Mar 2008 - 19:152064
I'm about 90% done on my Rydia outfit for May. So thats for sure now! *is excited*

18 Mar 2008 - 19:292065
I've done ziltch haha! xD Decided I'm not gonna use the bodice I've made now... I wanna make it one piece so that it's accurate to the FMV version xP Plus the fabric is too shiny XD

Gonna go up to Trago Mills/Exeter this Saturday to buy 10m of bridal satin though so fingers crossed I will get the base of the dress done over the Easter weekend ^_^ Otherwise at least by the end of the Easter holidays otherwise I'm gonna be cramming in a lot of embroidering and that's so gonna kill my revision time in May xD;; [Not that I revise at all anyways but you never know! I might panic and actually do some revision! XD]
