25th April 2011: I LOVE SIMPLE COSTUMES Made the top yesterday. It's just patterned off a sleeveless turtleneck I already have and made out of cream ribbed fabric left over from my Ouka costume. The neck is a tiny bit wonky - might fix it if I decide I can be bothered.
The gems are goldstone cabochons, a little bit smaller than they should be but it's quite hard to get them in bigger sizes. I didn't want to glue them directly on as I'd like to be able to put the top in the washing machine, so instead I glued them to some cream ribbon that I can then sew on and take off when I want to wash it. It's currently sewn on just a tiny bit skewy because it's really hard to get symmetrical >_< Again, might fix this later.
I have also discovered that I don't need to make the skirt - the skirt Winged_Dark_Elf made me for my Takano Miyo costume is almost identical, I just need to pin two buttons on to it. Still need to cut the wig into style and put in the ribbon, and possibly get some white flats that are falling apart less than my current ones, but this costume is very nearly finished :D
