30th June 2012: Photoshoot In Brighton- Asahi Festival I had a fantastic weekend, with a mini photoshoot around the city of Brighton!
I'd made a few more improvements to this costume, including a new wig, interfaced bows, and altered the skirt and boots.
Had so much fun doing this shoot although i wasn't the best of models, I did manage to get some good shots ^_^
Unfortunately I've already picked out more faults to be fixed, further adjustment of the skirt are needed (as i rushed it on the morning of the shoot) and I'd like to get some new boots...so might try and sell these if anyone is interested.
Oh and lastly.....WEAR THE FRONT BOW HIGHER YOU DIMBO LAURA! hahaha
20th October 2011: Sewing with thunder!! Still making progress on this! With only just over a week to go, i really need jupiter's thunder powers to get me into gear with this. I had a whole day of pinning and then another of sewing to get the main pieces underway. My bodysuit is almost complete, I'm waiting on finishing my skirt before attaching the hip roll to the suit (which i'm hoping wont be too difficult to manage/figure out) My gloves are done and dusted, and i've made a start on the collar at last! Its been very usesful having made this costume before as i used various pieces as templates for the newer versions (saved soo much faffing around)
Lastly I've been restyling my Jupiter wig! and i swore I said never to style an updo wig ever again after judith and kushi but nevermind, it had to be done as the ponytail wasn't placed properly before. I've reinforced the ponytail with adhesive glue this time which should make it stronger and hopefully stand up higher more like Jupiters ponytail does ^_^
Soo can't wait to finish this cosplay! Sailor Scouts have so much fun at Expo <3
6th October 2011: Skirts and accessories! I'm in love with the colour of my new fabric choice, gorgeous dark green looks way more like the original jupiter colours! Last night i spent the whole evening figuring out the skirt....which i didn't expect to take that long >_< but i've finally cut enough fabric so the skirt can be nicely pleated (more like badly pleated with me) and i quickly realised i needed to get more fabric O_o
Besides that, I've been re-vamping my tiara, got me a smaller stone and decided to raise the middle rather than bevel/score it as i'm terrible at that and thought this way would make the tiara more sturdy....however using the old tiara for the back wasn't the best idea as after re-painting it turned out all lumpy but nevermind, it looks okay from a distance haha
Lastly my re-painted boots! these poor things have suffered many layers of paint...which will no doubt crack and look hideous by the end of expo but until i can afford new boots, these will have to do. Its ashame i didn't just keep them in their original colour as they probably would've gone well with my new fabric >_<
Anyways, over and out for now, I have glove rolls to sew!
5th October 2011: Time to Re-generate!! I've been looking forward to remaking this costume sooo much! and this time I'm determined to use more accurate colours and sensible fabric (god knows what i was thinking orginally)
I've also decided to demote Jupiter from Super to Original as since i wanted to start from scratch i just felt the original needed to be done! So yes I'm more or less starting over again, only reusing my bodysuit and repainting my boots. I've been working on all the rolls and am repainting my boots to match my new dark hunter green fabric!
I've got alot to go yet, and not much time so i've got to get my butt in gear, think like jupiter and battle my way through this cosplay again! Really can't wait to wear this one again <3
22nd October 2010: Almost there... Well its been a while since my last update but i've been working hard trying to figure out how on earth to attach my skirt to my leotard, and I think i've finally cracked it. The collar and bow gave be enough grief as it was, but with some paitence i managed to sew on several poppers to hold eveything in place. Once i've conquered the skirt i can move on to all the rolls for the sleeves, hip and gloves, fingers crossed i'll finish in time, with only a week til expo O__o
8th October 2010: A day of wiggy madness! Today i attempted to style my wig, which i hadasked my lovely friend sam to help me with, but I was in a silly mood and decided to have a go with it myself. After a whole day of brushing, heating and spraying, i managed to start making my wig look like a neatly tidied up ponytail.Not 100% happy with it at this stage but i have still got a bit of time to experiment some more; at least i know its not impossible. I've also completed my choker, after trailing the shops for hours for an ideal star. In terms of the actual costume, i've remade my crappy collar as it was awfully uneven. I need to get a move on attaching everything to my bodysuit now.
1st October 2010: Transformation in progress! Things are finally coming together with jupiter, i bought myself a new bodysuit (as the other one was causing me heart ache) and have finished my boots and my collar (even though that's far from perfect)I also have a wig to style....which is no doubt going to be the death of me (damn ponytail)
13th September 2010: Pleats!! Well I've not been keeping track with this journal like i was suppose to so i seriously suck eggs for that. However I'm finally getting into gear with this costume. I'm currently slaving away at the skirt, with a poor attempt at pleating. I'm not good with an iron as it is, so steaming the pleats on wasn't easy.
I also recieved my base leotard (i'm too lazy to make my own) and boots through the post today so i'm beginning to feel things coming together.
Hopefully i can finish my skirt this week and crack on with the rest asap.
