Hey Sil, you looked absolutely cuddly when I saw you at Expo. It was nice meeting you again, and atleast this time you didn't have to run around to try and find tape because I broke my cosplay prop before the Masqurade. I look forward to seeing you at the next con. <3

Progress Journal

Complete. (Posted 21st January 2010)

Bought my whisk. Costume is done and dusted.

Hurry hurry! (Posted 8th January 2010)

I'm officially going to Midlands Expo and staying with my friend Emily so I need to get off my bum and get Suu finished!

I need to buy some more material for the hat, collar and to make my clover amulet. I may buy a whisk to edit. Or I might just wait until Kitacon!

In the mean time I've bought my wig from professional only and I plan to get the last bits of sewing done this weekend!

Pantaloons? (Posted 1st January 2010)

Watching Shugo Chara on Crunchyroll I watched the ending sequence and noticed something... Suu... wears... pantaloons/bloomers under her dress.

How cute is that? They're like, pale green. So I'm going to get some material tomorrow during my lunch break and get those started over the next week. I need to get back into the sewing swing of things so I can get Suu finished and get my ass into gear for Falsetto, Jaina and Lilith.

Dress and Pinafore progress (Posted 21st December 2009)

Well, I hemmed my dress today. So the sleeves and skirt are all nicely hemmed. I am thinking of getting some lace to add around the bottom and the sleeves to mimic the scalloped shape... but I'll think about it.

The apron is also hemmed, and now just needs a back bow, and the two additional side pieces to tie it together at the back!

I did a test run on my hat the other night, which I have figured out. I just need to make it bigger to fit around my head plus wig! But that shouldn't be too problematic. All-in-all, well on the way to completion.

Pinafore (Posted 9th December 2009)

Well, about hour or so and we have what is starting to look like a pinafore. Though I'm thinking I shouldn't have gathered it and just left is as two long strips, so it didn't have the gaps up the side of the apron section. Its not meant to so I'll likely get some more poly cotton to close up the gaps.

I need to do a waist band and make a large, very obvious bow. Which I'll probably do using my Sailor fuku bow technique, or something similar.

Anyway - that'll be tomorrow or over the weekend.

Dress done (Posted 9th December 2009)

Well the dress is finished. Took about 3 hours in total. Has a zip up the back so I can actually get it on and off. Its still a little loose at the back, so I think I'll do some darts at the back so it fits a bit better and isn't so baggy.

I'm likely to so a tulle skirt to puff out the underneath as my hoop skirt is a bit longer than my dress. We'll see.

I'm now working on the apron.

Dress Start (Posted 7th December 2009)

Started the dress today. The pattern I used is a Dorothy pattern from the Wizard of Oz, so has required a lot of gathering of the skirt into the top part of the dress.
But its gathered, and needs sewing into place. It actually puffs out a fair bit, so I may not need to use my hoop skirt.

Anyway - will hopefully get that sewn tomorrow, along with the zip sewn in the back. Then I'll get started on the apron. This costume shouldn't be too difficult, I hope.

Material (Posted 21st November 2009)

Bought my material today. 4 metres of pea gren poly cotton for the dress.
And 2 metres of lemon yellow poly for the apron and the hat (its YELLOW DAMMIT) not white.

Anyhow. I've ordered a McCalls pattern which has a night neckline, puffy sleeves and apron. Its from the costume section. I have to wait for it to come in as they didn't have it in adult sizes. Not too bad though.
