Ayacon 2011

14th August 2011: Bow and belt Made from left over crepe satin - it was the least stressful thing of the lot XD

14th August 2011: Bottom half This went wrong for so many reasons ... Firstly I honestly didn't have enough to get a load of netting or organza and neither the right pattern piece so instead of creating a bell shape, I used a pattern that had several panels for the dress which didn't line up properly... To get that volume I wore a hoop skirt underneath ^^; Secondly, the dress is held together by an elastic waist band as the round white bit got in the way of me putting a zip... And thirdly, the bottom hem line is not straight DX Man I'm a failure with this DX

14th August 2011: Bodice Urgh haven't done much progress for a while - literally everything about this cosplay went wrong ¬¬ The bodice for instance, I was planning to put a zip at the back and attach the bottom part of the dress to it - problem was that white bubble bit would interfere with the zip ... so in the end I opted to do a lacing fastening which I guess was better as the bodice looks prettier :D

6th August 2011: Top half WIP Not much progress - just tried on the bodice (still need to sew a zip to hold it together) and wig with crown - have to say, I really do feel like a Disney princess :D (Sorry for the bad night photo ¬¬)

6th August 2011: Wig Obviously I'm reusing my Selphie wig and from the ref, even though she's wear a headband I'm opting to have a tiara instead as it gives off a more 'princess' effect :D

6th August 2011: Sleeve progress Did both the sleeves this morning - again I think I failed cos it's not as puffy as I want it though it still does have a little volume

5th August 2011: Bodice progress Seeing as how I had a bit of left over fabric from Anastasia, I decided to recycle it for this cosplay - well the bodice anyways ¬¬ (need to get more for the dress) Anyways, I failed a little bit with it as I included the bodice to have shoulder straps instead of none from the ref. This also meant that it rduced the sweetheart neck line effect T^T But I'm not honestly too precious about the accuracy for this one ^^;; Not sure if that's a good or bad thing.... along with this, I also created more panels to get that front detail

1st August 2011: Reference fan art To go with Fusionrose's Quistis and Babemroze's Rinoa :D One Princess Selphie on the way!! >:D
