Information

I love the fukus. But I'm not sure what possessed me to do a Myu fuku for my first attempt. Even the anime version is known to be tricky to get right. But I managed! I actually managed! *proud*

Ok so yeah, haha, this costume took a lot of trial-and-error to get right. Old bedsheets are you friend. And fuckloads of interfacing! The collar was insanely difficult to get right. I've had loads of people asking where I got the pattern for this and no, I didn't use any of the few ones available online, I made it myself. With some help ofc. :) I can't really explain the collar, it's made out of like 12 parts, but the bodice is an adjusted pattern for a normal top, and the skirts are circlepatterns that I just pleated to oblivion.

Also discovered that bootcovers are not a good idea to start that night before if you've never made them before. Just wanna point that out. :P So yeah, they came loose at the end of the day, but oh well. It happens. ^_^

The only things I bought were the tiaras, that we got from Catzia, and the wigs. It's really funny, most people don't realise it's a wig! But it is! ^_^ Funnily enough my real hair isn't all that far off, but yeah, it's a wig. :)

Whoaa!! Amazing, it cost quite a bit I see but looking at the result it was worth it.

Telly posted on 5 June, 2009 - 21:46
Yeah, the trim and the beads took some searching for. It's my own fault as well, I live in a small town so getting hold of materials is tricky! :P Plus the wigs cost a bit. Cuz nope, it's not my own hair. But I've gotten that question quite a few times to that's pretty darn cool! ^_^ Thank you all so much. :D

You looked totally stuning in this caught my eye straight away! Watching the videos you showed me only confirmed how much like the character you look! SO CUTE x

Telly posted on 5 June, 2009 - 22:00
Haha, that's cuz I shine enough to power a small city silly! Ugh, I made so many mistakes in the chorrie! I think I've watched the vid too many times now tho, cuz I only see the faults. >_<

Ijustwannasqueezeyou!! <3 You look amazing! Spitting image for Myu Uranus! And your fuku is simply beautiful!

Mousie posted on 5 June, 2009 - 22:45
If you ever need trim or anything from the States or Canada let me know. It's cheaper for me to have it come here and then ship it to you than for you to get it shipped straight to you. You did an excellent job on your fuku!!! Now if only you had the right color shoes. . .

Telly posted on 5 June, 2009 - 23:01
Silver, come squeeze me! I've very squishy! :D MOUSIE! SHUSH! You're giving away my secrets! And you're meaning the actual shoes ne? I know I should've painted them, I ran out of time. :P And the bootcovers are going off Sanae-san's version cuz I don't like Nao-san's dark ones. ^_^

Mousie posted on 5 June, 2009 - 23:19
I'm teasing about your shoes. You were so cute and embarrassed when the boot cover came off!

Telly posted on 5 June, 2009 - 23:21
*embarrased* I wanted to badly to have a good costume. :P Same with my Seiya wig, I was terrified off getting told off for it not being blue enough. I wanted it to be bluer (eh, is that even a word?) DAMNIT! :P <3

Yes you both looked gorgeous in your costumes and I thought your masquerade performance actually looked professional. You both managed to keep excellent timing with each other and the music. Those routines were not easy. I cen tell a lot of work (and love) went into them. ...and that SWORD! omgosh it was so heavy, how did you manage without your arms falling off? ^^ It was nice to meet you both outside Expo too. ^__^

Telly posted on 7 June, 2009 - 00:14
Thank you so much! We worked so hard on our routine and cannot believe the reception we got. Everybody was so friendly and nice to us. But yeah, the routines took a lot of practise. It's all Lauren's choreography, she was amazing. I missed a few things but think I managed to cover them up mostly. :P And yes. That sword. That damn sword. I didn't get a chance to practise with it til the night before and omg I thought I was never going to be able to dance with it. Haha. Only reason I managed on the Sunday was pure adrenalin. ^_^ It was supernice to meet you too! :D

You two looked stunning, was fantastic to meet you both!

Your the best Uranus and Neptune pair I have seen in real life. The costume is so beatuiful and accurate! (In btw just incase you don't recongise me, this is Strawberry from Antics and it's nice to see you here ^_^)

Telly posted on 8 June, 2009 - 22:36
Wow. I'm blushing. ^_^

braceyfaceanimegurl posted on 9 June, 2009 - 21:15
Gah the photos make me nervous dunno if I'm gna be able to pull off as good a Uranus as you ^^;

Telly posted on 9 June, 2009 - 21:52
Haha hunny you'll be fine! And we can practise posing together! And ofc... you don't need to buy a wig since there's already one there. ;) Same as the sword!

Charlie-Bear posted on 20 June, 2009 - 22:16
Eep simply STUNNING *_* I figured that the wig was your own hair, looks so natural! All the detail is gorgeous and you look amazing! Definitely one of my favourite Uranus and Neptune pairs :]

Telly posted on 20 June, 2009 - 22:50
Yeah I've had loads of comments about that so that's a good thing (I think! HAHA) and I'm very pleased how it all came out. But man it was a lot of work! :P Wow, thank you so much! That's like the best compliment ever. ^_^

Chibi posted on 23 June, 2009 - 02:52
Wow this is really accurate, you really suit her! Major Kudos ^^

BlusterSquall posted on 23 June, 2009 - 08:44
New photos are gorgeous! You are a perfect Uranus!

Amy-Lou posted on 23 June, 2009 - 10:41
You look incredible, just like her! You must be so happy with this :)

AmethystEyes posted on 23 June, 2009 - 10:41
Holy moly, the detail is fabulous! Very well done.

Telly posted on 23 June, 2009 - 11:44
Thank you all so much! ^_^ I am happy with this, I tried my best to be as accurate as possible. I'm a perfectionist though so there are a few things I'd like to change but oh well, I can't have everything. :P And you guys seem to like it. :D *more happy dance*

Hey thanks for the comment ^_^ This is the best Uranus cosplay I think I've seen! You look so much like her, it's almost frightening!! But still utterly utterly amazing!

Telly posted on 6 November, 2009 - 12:48
Haha thank you! I worked really hard on the costume, as well as mimicking Nao-sans Uranus-ish manners so it's so great to get comments like that. ^__________^

Thank you so much! :D

FoxyChan posted on 3 May, 2010 - 21:58
wow you look amazing as her and not many people make the sword

Telly posted on 4 May, 2010 - 09:49
Thank you! <3 Yeah that sword was a HASSLE! :P My uncle helped me with it, because it's actually made out of metal. Which seemed a good idea at the time, until it came to dancing with it and I realised it was too heavy for me! Haha! But it's still fun to play with. ^^

Fantastic costume!! The bow looks way better than the one on the reference pic.
