Information

I think I'm going mad, as much as I love Cosmos in Dissidia I have no idea if I will do this cosplay justice but I'm determined to make and wear it! Must lose weight though!!

EDIT: Being moved to May 10 Expo, I am determined to get this finished!!

4 weeks isn't long.Has this been started yet?

Ranma1-2 posted on 23 March, 2010 - 23:59
Nawww I would love to see you wearing this, you will look beautifull! I wonder if you will wear it to other shows too, since I can't go to Kitacon. :/

What day are you doing this? I'm also doing Cosmos for May (sunday) and if I could I'd love to have a photo with you XD

Ranma1-2 posted on 3 May, 2010 - 19:52
I hope you get it finished in time, looks like a heck a lot to do still. That's normally my trick working on stuff right up to Expo. :P

Manga Girl posted on 3 May, 2010 - 20:03
@ Ranma1-2: I love a challenge! LOL I'm usually a last minute person and no doubt this will be an all nighter before Expo ^_^ @ Anime_Angel: Sweet! I'll definitely have to look out for you and say hello to you too! @ NixieThePixie: I'll be wearing this on Saturday but I definitely want to get a photo with you on Sunday! :D

Looking forward to seeing this. Dissidia costumes for the win!

Manga Girl posted on 4 May, 2010 - 19:48
Thank you hun! :D I hope I can complete it in time ^^

Ranma1-2 posted on 6 May, 2010 - 23:29
All nighters lol ..I'm trying to leave that all behind me. :) Awww progress is looking good. I had an idea - feel free to like totally throw it out - I was thinking about how the artwork has such tight lines at the bottom..like hobble skirts, totally impractical to walkk in, although looks good in artwork.. I wonder if it would work sewing some thin elastic inside the dress at say mid calf, so the lines would gather in at the bottom but you'd be able to actually walk in it too. Never tried this, just a thought I had about it. ^_^

Nothing like all nighters to keep the cosplay spirit alive! Thats a great idea, I never thought of that, thank you hun! :D

Omg *A*~ Your wig looks so pretty, where did you get it may I ask? :3 I can't wait to see this completed, it's going to be amazing :D

Manga Girl posted on 11 May, 2010 - 21:22
Thank you very much!! <3 I got the wig on ebay, this is the seller I bought it from ^_^ http://stores.ebay.co.uk/luxvogue

FrankieEstee posted on 11 May, 2010 - 21:37
You're very welcome~ <3 Thank you for the link *thumbs up*

Ranma1-2 posted on 11 May, 2010 - 21:48
Nice work on that centre detail. ;) Watch out for those fingers ..and the table cloth! :P (I assume you are using a very sharp craft knife)

Manga Girl posted on 11 May, 2010 - 22:00
Thank you! Yep I'm using a craft knife and don't worry I will ^_^ I've been warned not to touch the table cloth by my Mum otherwise I'm dead XD so I've got a panel of wood underneath it ;)

Ranma1-2 posted on 11 May, 2010 - 23:35
Can I recommend treat yourself to a cutting mat.. They are brill for cutting, they are designed to self heal after you slice into them, sharp blades don't go dull, and the knfe doesn't veer off like sometimes it can following wood grain. Also generally they are just great as flat work surfaces to do other jobs on. This kind of thing on eBy http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/A3-CUTTING-MAT-NON-SLIP-BOARD-ROTARY-CUTTER-CRAFT-NEW-/370357666026?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_Crafts_PapercraftTools_RL&hash=item563b0980ea but you can get them at art supply shops too.

Lovely dress, and all the gold jewellery decorations are awesome!

Ichigo-Chan posted on 31 May, 2010 - 18:24
When I saw this in real life I was saying to my friend how pretty your dress was! The gold detailing looks so clean and neat.

CrystalNeko posted on 31 May, 2010 - 18:32
I think I saw you in this very briefly! But I was being shuffled along on the other side of the hall so couldn't come say hello D: You looked amazing and all the details were so well made! Really suits you!

Lady Bahamut posted on 31 May, 2010 - 18:50
You looked great as Cosmos! I'm really sorry that I didn't say hello when you were in the cosplay, I wasn't sure if it was actually you or not! XD

Ranma1-2 posted on 31 May, 2010 - 23:36

Progress Journal

The dress part 3 (Posted 25th May 2010)

It's all done now, after 3 weeks of cutting, tacking and sewing ^_^
The sides at the bottom have been pulled in but enough that I can walk around easily. All thats left is to put the jewellery on and gold ling at the top

The dress part 2 (Posted 6th May 2010)

Tonight myself and Vicky tacked most of the dress together, theres still a lot to do but the structure of the dress has been done ^_^

The dress part 1 (Posted 3rd May 2010)

Finally after a long time and thanks to my good friend Vicky we've started on Cosmos' dress ^_^
Vicky had leftover material which we are using to make the dress, I'm usless at reading patterns so Vicky has been pinning the patterns in place and I have been sewing them.
So far the back of the dress and top of the dress has been sewn and we'll start work on the rest in the next week including making it neat around the edges ^_^
