13th August 2012: Evokers 100% Full details on how I made them to come in my description.
I forgot to engrave the screws detailing, woops. I'll do that for the next time I wear this.
I made an evoker belt last year for Japan Expo as well, unfortunately I can't seem to find it. Will need to make another one with the spare white leather and buckram I have. Sadly didn't have time to do this for Ame but I shall make it quickly before putting the costume away so I know everything is together.
12th July 2012: Evoker 50% Picture stolen from Mel's facebook trolololol.
Finally going back to this cosplay a year later. Rewore her last year for Japan Expo but didn't post progress as I made the belt in the hotel room... I'll post pictures when I can find the thing!
For the evokers, I had some A3 foam board spare from when I made Noel's (Blazblue) Bolverk. One A3 sheet was large enough to fit 2 evokers on which was perfect, as I was making two.
I found a vector trace of the evokers on deviantART (will link in actual description) which I enlarged on my laptop by working out the scaling through some odd calculations and then traced it by sticking paper on top of my laptop screen... The things I do to save ink XD;
I then drew out one layer with the trigger, followed by two layers without the trigger onto foam board. Then repeated for a second evoker. This was glued together with impact adhesive then Freyarule used some air fimo to seal the edges of the foam board whilst I cut out all the craft foam layers. Each side has two layers of craft foam so far, which was then covered by air fimo by myself once more.
We'd have carried on but there's barely any craft foam left as I only bought one A3 sheet... Damn XD;
Time Taken: 6hrs
30th March 2010: 30/03/2010 - Derp derp I'm a spazz Forgot to upload this photo xD;;
Close up of the SEES armband for ya~
30th March 2010: 30/03/2010 - Pretty much done! XD TAKE THAT MITSURU!
Costume is all done, waheeeey x)
Sewed on the silver buttons onto the skirt... They don't show up very well though T^T
Made the SEES armband - leftover red cotton drill from Meroko and did the outline in pencil first then went over it in permanent marker.
Bow is made from the same fabric as the armband... I think I went a bit overboard with the size xD;;;
AND I GOT A NEW BEYOOTIFUL WIG <33333
I think that's it! x)
I hope to make an evoker in the future, I -really- want one for Minami but we gotta see if time allows me to!! I've got the outline drawn out, it's a start! :'D
And in the future if I can ever be bothered I'll modify the boots so that it has accurate straps... But I need pleather for that and sadly I don't have that lying around xD (Yes, Mitsuru was pretty much made up of scrap fabric LOL)
Time Taken - 1-2hrs
Costs: Wig £22
2 Silver buttons £1.02
7th March 2010: 07/03/2010 - PROGRESS! Hell yes, I've -kinda- got my cosplay motivation back! Mind my cosplay motivation for my MAIN cosplays *coughSethcough* hasn't returned just yet, so I'm playing with simple things at the moment~~
Soooo, I decided to finally get a move on with Mitsuru~
I had lots of black cotton drill (And I mean LOTS!). It's perfect for making pleated skirts, and so this is what I did. I spent ages trying to figure out how her skirt drapes actually, but it looks like your normal pleated skirt tbh. I haven't had a chance to iron the pleats in which is why it sticks out quite a bit, but I quite like it like this, I may or may not keep it like this!
I don't actually have a zip readily available though... So it's held together with a safety pin until I go out and buy one x'D (I need to buy the silver buttons too)
The blouse is probably the blouse I'm going to use, I don't have time (nor can I be bothered lolol) to make one that's 100% accurate >_<;
The ribbon was for picture purposes only. I'll be making a bow I'll have you know XD
The boots were suppose to be for casual wear but they hurt my feet too much if I wear them for too long ;_; So they shall be for cosplay purposes instead! 8D (I think they're pretty good for Mitsuru actually!)
The wig is for picture purposes unless I can't afford a proper wig in time, in which case I'll just wear this one until I can afford a longer one!
Time Taken: 1-2hrs
Costs: 1m Black cotton drill £3
Long black boots £10
