Pokemon

Cosplayer: eternal_aranel

Variant: gijinka

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

16th August 2011: Finished Finished outfit. Bustle skirt, under skirt and halter top :D

12th August 2011: Under skirt and bustle Bustle and under skirt together
Bustle needs to be attached to a waitband.
I decided to do them seperatly as I wasn't sure about putting this thickness throuhg my machine.
So I will handsew the waistband of the bustle. But I am happy with it :)

12th August 2011: Under skirt Under skrit completed
Made from a cream satin lined with the 2 tone tafetta and also edged with it
Made long in the back and shirt at the front to give a rapidash tail effect.

:)

12th August 2011: 1st layer Added the top layer of the gold :D

Comign along nicely :D

Still miles from finihed....needs tidying up, ironing to set the hems etc...

12th August 2011: Bustle skirt I decided I wanted to make a bustle skirt for Rapidash :D
It will have 3 layers, plus the main skirt part
I made the second layer first for some weird reason.
The flash on the camera shows the gorgeous colour changing fabric I thought was perfect for the flames.

The way I have it layered out is
1st layer -gold
2nd layer-orange (this one)
3rd layer -red
Main skirt - beige...longer at the back and lined with the fire fabric :D

All the ruffles along the bottom are made with the fire chaging fabic as well

Need to get all the layers then add the waist band

Also meet Sally! my new maniquin! Toshi-chan was kind enough to sell her to me :D
She makes things SO MUCH EASIER!!!

12th August 2011: Gloves Made flames out of a variety of taffetaa fabric. (so shiny and pretty)
Sewed 2 layers together then arranged and attached them to a pair of beige fingerless gloves
I might dye the tips opf the gloves black for a cool effect....but other than that I am quite happy with them and the fire effect :D

12th August 2011: Shoes I painted the tips of a pair of gold dolly shoes black
Just to give a hoofy effect :D

4th August 2011: hmmm I realised I don't have the extra week to make this that I thought I did(between Ayacon and the meet which is on Saturday the 27th)
This is due to my work sending me to Germany for a week straight after Ayacon (I actually leave Ayacon to go to the airport XD)
So I am having to make this now and quite quickly alongside my Aya cosplays.
It wont be quite as details as I wanted it to be but I am still gonna try to make it look WOW! XD

Had an amazing brainstorm yesterday :DDD

28th July 2011: Design I commissioned this from a girl who needed money for an operation for her kitty.
Just to give me some more ideas....and its awesome! My design won't be exactly like this...but it will be pretty similar :D
