What is it? Angela Blanc (Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler)
How is it going? I'm doing it as a skirt-and-top rather than a dress, as I already have a hoop skirt I can use as the base. Bought a bodice to which I'll attach trim and sleeves for the top. Depending upon how long it takes me to do that and sew the feathers onto the skirt, I might also make the wings...
When is it for? AmeCon 2012
Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? Not really got any further than the planning stage at this point, but looking forward to going fabric shopping and getting started in a couple of weeks' time.

What is it? Yuber's coat (Suikoden III)I've not been sewing long so am only making part of this cosplay hence why only the coat.
How is it going? Ok (I hope )
When is it for? Kitacon 2012
Any particularly fun bits you've had so far? I tend to have music on when sewing so that adds to the fun. Also that random moment when I had it half completed and was trying it on and started randomly dancing ^^'

I'm currently working on my Yoruichi cosplay and Homura cosplay. I know, My skin is not the same as Homura's, but I really like her and since she has dark theme colours, I thought I could cosplay her...

Anywho, I'm working on Homura and I'm really excited because I might cosplay her for the Red Nose day run in March!!! And woth the leftovers I'm making the Yoruichi cosplay!!!

Well, as I cosplay with my two friends we're always looking for costumes that can be done in trios. We've chosen to do steampunk costumes for this year's round of cons and I found the most beautiful pattern online that I've decided to use and adapt to a steampunk dress. So far I have the back (all SIX pieces!) and the skirt sewn and I'm looking to get more done soon~ It's for a convention coming up in May (Animazement) and I have a nasty feeling I'm going to have to scramble to get it done ;A; I'd have to say that wearing my corset has been the most fun so far, but I absolutely love the fabric my mom got for me! When she was in New York City (I'm American) she made a trip into the fashion district and picked up some gorgeous fabric for my dress. It's iridescent silk that's seafoam green/coppery brown depending on the light it's in and the way it's folded So all in all, I'm super excited to wear this to a con and can't wait to get it done!


21 Feb 2012 - 08:0179369
What is it?
Arwen Umdomiel Coronation Gown from Return of the King

How is it going?
Have pretty much just started. Ordered a metre of the fabric I wanted and for now I'm just doing the embordiery that will be on both upper sleeves and the collar

When is it for?
Not for any particular date but I will be wearing it to the next Cosplay Scotland meet when its fininished

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far?
-Ordering two fabrics in EXACTLY the same colour from a website, took me awhile to figure which was which

-Drawing the pattern for one sleeve took me an hour and that the embordiery will take aaaages including beadwork

21 Feb 2012 - 12:1579382
Good luck Misa ^^
I'm working on my first full-body mascot costume (for Kitacon): Bonta-kun from Full Metal Panic.
I'll be using a sewing machine for the first time and I have a bad feeling I'm going to impale my fingers!


21 Feb 2012 - 14:4979391
What is it
1. Ami Futami, Palace of Dragon costume (typically worn for song "Smoky Thrill". It's for Catnip_Dream
2. Ranka Lee, normal outfit. Again, for Catnip_Dream
3. The Riddler, Arkham City. For me.
4. Gyarados body, Chinese dragon style. For me, Catnip, Faith Leaper, and two others who need a CI account
IF I HAVE TIME
5. Takane Shijou, Palace of Dragon costume. For me.
6. The Mad Hatter, Batman mix. For Catnip

How's it going

BREAKDOWN COMMENCING:
1.Top - Main bit - done
- White frills - done
- White top and sleeves - cut out
- collar - half done
Skirt - Cut out
Bloomers - done
Shoes - done
Stocking - Not started (utterly terrified of)
2 - 4. Not started but everything together for it
5. Bought leggings and have altered boots
6. Coat cut.

When is it for
1 - 6: Kita IV

Fun bits?
No. It's really frustrating. The netting for the bloomers was a nightmare, get the top to fit properly was a nightmare, the collar made me want to kill it. On top of that, the cat has been going "OMG FABRIC!" *pounce* and it's very frustrating.

And it's just looking like a reject super hero costume... *is depressed*

- Gentleman Explorer x2 (with a friend)

How's it going
Gathering sewing patterns for the Jäger coat and corset, pretty much have everything for the GE one (except a large butterfly net, but details details...)

When is it for
May London Expo, GE on the Saturday and JM on the Sunday

Fun bits?
The idea of running around with a handlebar moustache for GE. Making a corset for the JM is harder than I thought though, but at least the pointy teeth will be simple

What is it
* Kaname Kuran (Vampire Knight)
* Arlin (Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana)

* Arlin - Only just started on him, so not very far at the moment.

* Faris - This costume is about 70% detailing, and I'm only about 5% into the first 30% of construction.

When is it for
* Kaname - Kitacon IV
* Arlin - Possibly Amecon
* Faris - Hopefully London MCM Expo, May 2012.

Fun bits?
Making Raye-chan SQUEE like the great big Kaname Kuran fan she is. ^_^'

Serah Farron From Final Fantasy XIII

How is it going?

Not too bad actually ^^
I have bought the wig (Pre Styled)
I have made the Armband (Took about 5 hours ish, which includes waiting for the paint and glue to dry xP)
I have ordered the skirt and shirt from ebay and was dispatched just the other day (I have to buy it because i have minimal sewing skills and i dont have access to a sewing machine xPP)
I am getting the stockings next week or the week after and i am going to browse around some shops for the some hold up's (I think i will look in a fancy dress shop for them, as they will hopefully be cheaper)
I am thinking of painting my Converse, but i might chicken out because if i screw it up then i wont have any other suitable shoes without having to spend a fortune on some new converse or even buying replica ones online xP
And the little leg attachment i hope to do ASAP, i have had some advice on how to make it so i shall give it a try and if it fails then i will ask my dad to make it xDD Good Old Dad ^-^
And the jewelery are last on my list of priorities because they arent essential and i might be Crap at making them (Especially the necklace xO)

When is it for?

London MCM Expo May 2012

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far?

Well i did enjoy making the armband, as i made it from scratch (Which would be the first time i have made anything for Cosplay from scratch)
And it came out pretty good first time round =D

What is it?

1. Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter
2. Galadriel from LOTR

How is it going?

1. I've finished most of the accessories (just have to make one more ring). Because I'm a cheapskate and refuse to pay £30 for a wand, I made that as well. I've got some boots for a whole £10 from eBay. It's really just the actual dress left to go. And then embroidery. That'll be a laugh.
2. Again, I've started with accessories, but I've only finished my version of the ring. I didn't want the accurate version because it's so big that it makes my stubby little fingers look fat and horrid. I'm about half way though making the headpiece thing.

When is it for?

They're both most likely for the May London Expo, but as I've not technically booked anything yet, that remains to be confirmed.

Any particularly fun bits you've had so far?

1. I actually had a lot of fun making the wand. Clay is awesome stuff. I liked it so much, in fact, that I made Narcissa Malfoy's wand for a friend, and am potential making Voldemort's wand for another.
2. I haven't done that much yet, but in making the ring, I discovered a skill that I didn't know I had, which is nice. I'm looking forward to making the cloak, because cloaks are awesome.
