Kotori Minami (Wedding) - Love Live!


Amecon 2016


I've placed myself on the mercy of Taobao for this one - it wasn't one I had originally planned to make any time soon because the scale of the dress scared me a little but I found a seller who make it to a GORGEOUS standard with lace, something which I'd really struggle with myself so I impulse bought it for the ball at Amecon (as long as it fits okay!).
Her wig's lovely thankfully so keeping my fingers crossed for the dress to look nice too!

Thankfully everything was pretty nice and just needed some alterations for fitting. I put in a new zip as the old one was bad quality and wouldn't have held for long, refitted the waist a little to suit me more and altered the arm sleeves heavily to make them sit better. I also threaded some elastic through the garter to make it hold better. I've got a pair of boots for this but I'm not totally comfortable wearing them, particularly if a lot of walking to the ball venue is required so I may swap them for my Madoka shoes instead which should still match fine and will be comfy!

Alterations are go...

I put in a new stronger zip today and thankfully that did the trick and it fits great now! I let it out a little at the waist and it fits a lot better too now - thankfully where I let it out is where all the gathers are anyway so it's not noticable. I also ordered a tiara for her off ebay - I was going to mod one I had but found one that I thought was pretty although not completely accurate. Will get around to sorting out the rest of the accessories at some point - not a lot to do thankfully, just securing bits here and there!

It begins...

The dress arrived today and thankfully is just as gorgeous as it looked in the online store pictures! It needs a bit of fixing up in places but shouldn't be too bad - it's mostly they despite the quality of the other materials, they put in a substandard zip which broke on the first use. I'll be putting in a much sturdier zip and possibly extending the width of the back panel a bit as it might be too small by about an inch or so around the hips. They surprisingly had more accessories come with it than I was expecting so I have less to make then I'd thought - mostly just altering and resecuring the arm things and beads so they hold on better while wearing. I need to make a white hair bow for the veil to attach to in the wig and work on a tiara.
