Puella Magi Madoka Magica Cosplay (aya 2011)
Me and a few people are thinking of getting together for a Madoka Magica cosplay group, I thought I'd try out to see if there's any interest here?

So far I'll be cosplaying as Mami, we have a possible Madoka, a Sayaka and maybe a Charolotte.


Madoka - Ichigo-Chan
Mami - Angel Tear, Catnip_Dreams, Osaka19
Kyoko - Nachtangel
Homura - Dokucherry
Sayaka - ElleEctricity (from ayacon forums)
Charolotte - Kuros
Kyubey - Richard (Angel Tear's boyfriend), Cohen

Mami...

Er... Blonde girl with a blue hat who wears a yellow poofy skirt, a white shirt and a brown corset/waistcoat thing?

If so, Catnip_Dreams is cosplaying that version of her; I'm currently making it - almost finished it in fact. Well, except the hat and accessories - they're not started yet.

Yup, I went shopping for everything yesterday. I'm really excited about it. Her rifle is already in the making too.

A pointer about the hat though, it isnt blue, but rather brown like her corset.

I'm really nervous about tackling the wig though, those curls of hers are immense!

*holds on tightly to head*

Please dont eat me...? I'll love you forever if you dont!

I really don't know if I can go or not as I'm pretty poor (and by then I'll be paying rent OTL)
Buuut
If I do go to Ayacon I was thinking of going as Kyouko Sakura and it'd be awesome to be in a group!

but it's a definitely a maybe due to everything taking my money away from me >.<

I really hope that you can make it, I was getting worried that Kyoko wasn't getting much love from cosplayers. The hair would be amazing to see in person too.
Same goes for the others really, theyre just gorgeous designs.

I just remembered that I forgot to mention that my boyfriend would be going as a human version of Kyubey, so if you notice him making any contracts... Well, you know what to do.

I hope I can too I've been looking at my accounts and I think I should be able too if I spread the costs out <3 and I loved kyouko she was awesome I hope I can do her justice!

Looks like you may need to keep a leash on him XD

I'll also be cosplaying Mami, and like Nixie said, she's making it because she's lovely =3 I'm smaller than Mami so my waistcoat thing only has 2 buckles, but right now its almost finished and is looking adorable =3

Well I just registered and I can book my accomodation tonight using my savings so I guess I'm going! XD

I've also found a wig that should be perfect for her so I shall definetly be there for the group

It looks like it's just me going as I don't think my friends can afford it and I've never been to everything other then Expo so um look after me? XD

D8 WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT ISN'T BLUE?!

The picture LIED TO MEH!

Luckily, I actually have loads of the brown fabric... I'll make both, and then Catnip and decide on the colour :3

I'd love to know which picture youve seen, this is madness! But if its fan art then that might explain it. Good job you found out BEFORE making the hat. I wouldnt have been happy ;_;

Hurrah for Natch! Dont worry about not having your friends go with you, people tend to be rather chatty there so you'll be fine. Of course the magical girlies have to stick together!

Im not sure if I mentioned this on my first post, but I do have a friend who is willing to take photos of the group, so if you do want a photoshoot then that can easily be arranged.


28 Apr 2011 - 20:1054952


Dunno if that's accurate, it's the one that Catnip gave me (I'm too lezeh to add dreams lol)

And seconding the chattiness. I had some funs when the FF9 group met up, and I'm practically a social retard.

I will be the Madoka in the group and I'm so excited already. I have 2 friends who are interested to cosplay as Homura, but sadly doubt it will be for AyaCon as they originally planned it for the end of year, but I can try asking one or both if they want to push it forward to AyaCon.


28 Apr 2011 - 21:4754967
A bit of encouragement might be good but if they're not keen then don't worry. They might decide to go for it if they know there's a group going on? It would be great if we got a whole group of girls.

@Nixie

Yeah, thats the one I'm working off, along with other screencaps from the show.

@Angel Tear: The majority of (screen shot) images that I've picked up from google show that it's not brown, and that it's a dark almost plum colour. So I'm gonna go with the very dark navy that we picked up (cause frankly, dark plum is a poo to find in the fabric shop near us), cause it a closer colour.

Thats cool, you go for it. I'm kind of hoping my fabric which has been dyed will turn out okay in the end. I've not yest seen how its come out, or if I'm going to have to play with colours some more.

How are you all going my lovely ladies?

So far I have a pretty new soul gem on its way and my skirt is nearly done.

I tried dyeing some of the red curtain fabric to go more brown but it hasnt quite achieved the colour I want, so I'll be sticking it back in with more dye again at some point soon so I can make it darker.

Wig has been bought, I just hope it isn't a disaster

I've got Catnips almost done XDXD Everything is stitched together, just needs some tidying up. *imaginary hair flick* lol

Everything minus everything from the neck up anyway. So no wig (though it's bought, should be here soonish bank holidays have slowed it's arrival) hat and hair accessories thingies. Also, no rifles yet, buuuuuut I can't be arsed with them - Catnip is doing them instead.

Only got them done because I HAVE NO LIFE.

Plus it helps my portfolio XDXD

I'm currently bidding on some boots that I can then add some covers to for Kyouko, I'll also be starting the Spear tonight I think (once I stop procrastinating and working on Stocking instead XD)
I want to start on Kyouko now but I can't afford any material until after Expo >.< I have found a wig for her though which is half the price of the one I was originally going to get! <3

I am currently styling Madoka's wig. I brought a ponytail extension wig and it required a lot of cutting since the pigtails are too long. The only minor problem with the wig is that the colour looks peachy and not pink in every indoor photo when the natural colour is pink! hopefully it's just my camera

I also have a white petiti coat which works well for Madoka's skirt and since I have a huge amount of spare white klona cotton and polyester, I will hopefully start on the underskirt this week. I just need to decide which fabric to use though tempted to go for the klona cotton.


03 May 2011 - 23:1555411
Decided to give you some progress images. Before hand, I just want to say that I KNOW the corset isn't right and I've done it more a waistcoat. But I hadn't realised til after I had made it (i've not watch the anime, I'm making it for Catnip_Dream) and she then said she prefered it. If I get the time I may remake it.

Also, the buckles are in the wrong place, they need to be moved slightly over. And there are only two cause she's rather small, and three was ridiculously too much.








Also, her wig has now arrived :3

And I know there isn't a shirt attached, but she's actually smaller than my dress form can go, so the shirt doesn't fit it.

-jumps in-
Sorry to randomly invade, but bloody hell Nixie, that progress is amazing! Looks so professionally made! Fantastic job on it!

I'd so be Homura for this but sadly I'm all booked up for Aya! If I decide to go to Fushi though I've got Homura planned for that :3

But yeah, really looking forward to seeing you guys!
I look forward to seeing what you Mamis do with your wig, I love seeing how different cosplayers tackle gravity defying wigs like that!


04 May 2011 - 00:0655416
@Nixie Mami looks awesome! I love the colour of the skirt and corset <3

@Ichigo-Chan And I'm sure it's just the inside light making the wig look peachy, I always have to run outside to take decent photo's of my wigs ^_^

@CrystalNeko *psst* be our Homura-chaaan

I have some good news for this group, my friend Dokucherry has agreed to cosplay as Homura for this group, so I'm happy to say we have a full group

@ Nixie
Your progress is amazing! Can't wait to see this completed

@ CrystalNeko
If your doing Homura for Fushi let me know because if you want, I can cosplay as either Kyoko or Madoka for you (though most likely to be Madoka because I doubt I have time or even can afford to make another Madoka Magica cosplay until early 2012 onwards)
