Rin Kagamine
Vocaloid 02

Cosplayer: CrystalNeko

Variant: Synchronicity

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

26th October 2010: Headband I look like I have bunny ears! Awwwwh.

Sewed two shapes the same then stuffed some wire in them then twisted them around a thin headband I bought from Claires. They sometimes flop down so I have to keep an eye on them.

Time Taken: 1hr?? - I've been working on the anklets, straps and stuff as well

18th October 2010: Shoes! I bought some and they are lovely <3

They're only 3.5" high as well, which is what I normally wear whenever I wear heels so they'll be easy to walk in x)

I love shoes, and I love heels~ Bargain price as well! AND THEY'RE NOT PATENT (I hate patent shoes).
Bought from www.pricelessshoes.co.uk
(Also bagged myself some lovely warm fuzzy boots which I am wearing now. That piece of information was completely irrelevant but I love them and I'm known for going off on tangents anyway herpderp)

12th September 2010: Wiiiig Is cut and styled! 8D

I should give it a final hot water treatment really. But it's too late for that now XD

It's all lovely and brushed and layered though. Have a picture!

Time Taken: 10-20mins

P.S. It's not actually platinum blonde. That's just my shoddy webcam, I can't be bothered to get my camera out because I'd only have to use flash anyway. That or you'll get a tinted orange photo if I don't use flash.

4th September 2010: Ruffles Ruffles are doooone~~~

I look like a dork yes.

Time Taken: 1hr

2nd September 2010: Lololol Watashi wa baka desu~~~ I am an idiot lalalalaaa 8'D

Why am I an idiot? Because I cut out separate panels for the underskirt because I thought this was the only way to do it. This makes the lines not go completely downwards. Then as I was sewing it, I had a little PING in my head and facepalmed myself. I should have pleated it... I had enough fabric for it... But I didn't do it. If I had pleated it then the lines would all be facing downwards like it should, ahhhh don't you hate those sudden epiphanies when they're just too late? I know I do ;P
I blame my idiocy on the fact that I'm really rather ill at the moment deeerp *excuses excuses*

Not going to redo it though, taffeta is not cheap stuff and it's an underskirt so only a small section at the back will be seen. It just bugs my perfectionist ways looool~

Recognize the dress? It's my Azu-nyan (K-On!) Don't Say "Lazy" dress that I started making but stopped because the group never happened. I figured the dress was perfect as a base and I'm probably not going to ever cosplay the Don't Say "Lazy" version of Azu-nyan when I'm working on Mio, so destroy it for Rin instead! 8D If I change my mind I can always unpick the ruffles off the dress, sew up the back, etc to turn it back into Azu-nyan, there's not much difference really.
I washed the fabric and hadn't bothered ironing it yet so will do that at some point...

The bodice still needs to be fitted, it was pinned to the top I was wearing for picture purposes! Everything needs to be hemmed too, including the underskirt. Will do that... later.

Probably going to finish off the main part of the dress soon-ish. I wanted to work on my Simon (TTGL) cosplay because the fabric for the shorts had arrived... But there was white thread in the machine already and I thought if I don't make Rin now then I'll end up turning it into a rush job LOL.

For the record:
Crushed taffeta was bought from www.cheapfabrics.co.uk
Black chiffon was bought from my friend Gwennie, but I'm assuming she got it at the Fancy Silk Stores in Birmingham, they have everything there XD

Still need to buy some yellow... stuff... for the string thingies. I don't know what to use. I don't want to use ribbon, it doesn't look shiny XD Unless they have matte ribbon in my local fabric shop in which case I'm there! That or I'll buy that strange string thingy that I used for my Kaitou Jeanne cosplay.

Contemplating on making a second petticoat for this. We'll see, depends on time because petticoats takes me absolutely ages to make!!

I don't know whether that progress picture makes me look like a giant or a midget... ... ...
I'm just going to shut up now. I talk too much.

Time Taken: 3hrs
