Len Kagamine

Cosplayer: KiraraYumi

Variant: Imitation Black

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

28th October 2010: C'est fini! So, I just finished the faux-corset 8D It's nothing special and I'm sure I'll fix it up next time I wear this, but for now...muahaha, it's not too bad! It's loose-ish looking and makes me look fat, but meh, I don't care at this point. I shall fix on myself decently on the 30th.

And with it done, this costume is COMPLETE! At least for Expo. I still have the back-bow to do, but I'll do that for Kita or something. muehehehe.

27th August 2010: So close! So today, after many weeks of being afraid, I finally sewed the skirts onto the shirt. I FLIPPIN LOVE IT! <3 I'm so pleased with how everything looks, I wish I could get a picture up! Only needs a little tweaking, mainly bringing up a bit of the long skirt so that it feels more like a dress and less like an uber train.
Stockings have been purchased, my mom's getting me a suspender belt in the next day or so, finished the shirt and hair bow 100%. I am a happy camper =D
I just need to make the (faux)corset and back bow and then sewing for this costume is DONE!

27th July 2010: HAHAHAHA *eyetwitch* I worked on the middle and long skirts on and off all day, and my finger is KILLING ME from forcing pins into the material. Which was a lot harder than it should be...stupid pins.
A day of making pleatruffles....augh, they're pretty, but such a pain! xD SO happy I don't need to make anymore! All that's left to do before I leave for 3 weeks is attaching the skirts to the torso piece and adding the ribbon and rose to it.
I can see the end! Yay!

3rd July 2010: Sleeves + First Skirt I finished the sleeves on the 1st, I'm so happy! I love making sleeves first for costumes because I get a gist of how the rest will be, and it's a small detail that shows me yes, I am recreating this image. Make is more real or something...I dunno xP
I started the mimi skirt earlier and holy hat, it was so easy! Took about 5 mins to measure everything correctly and the elastic took no time at all! I'm in shock, after Marta's skirts being such horrors....proof that tutorials are much better than guessing. Since I need to put in the pleats, which takes a while to sort out, the skirt isn't complete yet but it will be next time I work on it. American Independance Day celebration today, so I don't have time to continue now...whoooo, I'm very happy with this so far^^ The part I'm dreading the most is the torso part of the dress...no clue how to make that. But we'll worry about that later >.>
