I am currently working on my FFXII Ashe costume as well as Ruby! These are planned for London Expo to begin with ^_^

No really much progress but I am glad I am getting back into cosplay (I have had a few months break). Just need to spend some Christmas bonus money on the fabric I want!

I am currently converting my spare room into somewhere I can do my dress making...it is currently covered in moving boxes which most actually belong to my boyfriend (they are going into the attic as soon as I can manage hahaha)

What is it? Hero from Dragon Quest 8
How is it going? Nearly done. Just have a pocket to sew, and boot tops and a boomerang to make. Plus acquiring a Munchie like toy mouse and making sure I can borrow the bag.
When is it for? Minamicon 2008
Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? Sewing 104 button holes... wait fun: actually making my first piece of costume.

What is it? Monster in the Darkness from the Order of the Stick.
How is it going? Located and ordered an umbrella in the right colour, so once that arrives will start making it
When is it for? Minamicon 2008
Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? Planning what to write on the Speech Bubbles I plan to make.

What is it? Insert artwork costume from Tsubasa Chronicle of Sakura.
How is it going? I just started, so I've only planned it and worked out the materials to be used.
When is it for? Amecon 2008
Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? Nope, since I only thought of the idea- but does that count? Its exciting in itself ^^


19 Dec 2007 - 19:311293
Hehe.. okay.. Just cuz I can, I'll post too.

What costume is it? ... Hellsing: OVA Ultimate Seras Victoria

How is it going? ... Uh. Not brilliantly to be honest. I have material for the uniform, but I want to do this costume REALLY well so I am hesitant to touch it incase I go wrong *sweatdrop* However, I do have the perfect wig for this costume, and my prop Harkonnen Cannon (TO SCALE!) is approximately 80% completed. All is needed to do on it is attaching the detail parts, having the handle finished off and the paint job(with a little help from EksDee-Alucard and his prop making skillz).

When is it for? ... Mwahaha. With any luck, LondonExpo May 2008 accompanied by EksDee-Alucard as Jan Valentine and Alucard from Hellsing.

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? ... Hmm.. carving out the stock of the cannon, I think Using POWERTOOLS IS ALWAYS FUN! S'gonna be a much more impressive feat that my Alucard guns which, were afterall made merely from polystyrene.. I'm going all out on this costume, so I hope it turns out as well as I hope it will!


27 Dec 2007 - 22:141315
What costume is it? ... Rinoa V2

How is it going? ... Heh....you know me. RUBBISH!

When is it for? ... Minami 2008 I hope.

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? ... finding the god darned material!!

Well, Im not working on costumes, (well, sort of.... Armour anyone?)
At the moment I am making Hitugayas Hynomaru from bleach, and have finished the guard, I need to make the tang and paint it, it for the London Expo and my friend is sporting it, and for myself, I am constructing a HEV suit from Half Life 2, where I shall cosplay as Gordan Freeman, with a headcrab and crowbar.... also Im thinking of making a portal gun and companion cube from Pepakura, but thats for a later date.

I am working on my costumes for Minamicon 2008!

Namely, I am working on my Wild Arms costume, Greg Russelburg!

Sadly I am netless at home at the moment, so can't upload a picture. But, it's going alright so far...

It's a steep learning curve for me, as this is my toughest costume to do, albeit one of my most colourful!

Still, it's enjoyable enough (sort of )

What is it?: Maya Fey from Phoenix Wright.
How is it going?: It's actually going oookay. Which is good in my books. I still need to finish the shoes, style the wig a little and make the obi and jacket (AHHHH that sounds like alot X.X) but it's going okay. I just hope it's done in time. >_<
When is it for?:Minami! (My first one!)

What is it?
Rydia, Summoner of the Mist. Final Fantasy IV

How is it going?
Its moving along smoothly. One sleeve is very close to completion. The other one needs one more bit of sewing on the machine to be done, and then the ribbon to had handsewn on.
After that its time to work on the bodice.

When is it for?
I'm hoping to have it done by May Expo. If not then, it'll be debueting at AmeCon! :]

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far?
The sleeves. I screamed at my sewing machine. Grumbled at my mum and bled several times, but I love them. They've been the hardest thing I've made so far, but they're also the more rewarding! x)

What is it?
Sephiria from Black Cat.

How is it going?
Very well - over the years, I've gotten used to not finishing cosplay projects in time for events and working on them in hotel rooms, so I'm really pleased with the progress I'm making now! I expect to have the main bit of the coat finished by Saturday night at the rate I'm going, which will leave the costume about, ooh, 85-90% complete I think.

When is it for?
Minamicon 14.

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far?
I've actually been bringing my work in progress to the crafts group that takes place at my office. It's fun, because most of the women who come to that are knitters, with one or two people doing embroidery, so I'm a bit of a novelty!

Moving towards the kind of "fun" that's actually kind of "not fun", I'm at the stage now where I have to attach sleeves to my coat. That's always my least favourite part - I always find them so fiddly. Then there's the bit where I came home to find that the kitchen in the flat above mine flooded, and it leaked into my living room and soaked part of my sofa... which is where I work on my cosplay, so all my bits and pieces were there. Fortunately none of my costume pieces got wet though.

Whee! My first post here in the forums (besides the intro thread I've just done).

I have a few in the pipline.

I've had to take a brief time out while I recover my fractured ribs but I hope to restart very soon.

I have waiting the wings (mainly for Amecon)
Abel Nightroad - Trinity Blood (anime version)
Sephiroth - Final Fantasy 7 Advent Children
Yazoo - "
Raphael - Soulcalibur 2
Lord Illpalazzo - Excel Saga

There is also Hojo - FF7 for my brother. And a few film and TV ones including Jareth from Labyrith, Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter movies and a costume from 'Heroes'.

Most I hope to use my own hair for as I don't like to wig. I have great bishy hair that I'm proud of *smiles*
