Hinamori Amu (Amulet Diamond) - Shugo Chara!

Information

My favourite of Amu's Chara-naris.

It looked like such a challenge to do and so obviously i had to have a go!

Will be part of a Shugo Chara group for May Expo. ^_^

Watch out for the huge group of us dancing out the front. XD

*does the Shugo Shugo dance*

^^

Complete apart from the wig which still needs to arrive and be styled. but other than that i'm done! ^_^ yay!!!!!!

Ready for Expo! ^_^

I tried it all on this morning and tested it out (ie: i danced around in it) and i'm happy to say it stood up to the test. XD


Expo Verdict: oh dear. this cosplay. so many things went wrong. the hedset refused to stay on, my legwarmers kept falling down and i had a huge problem with my bra showing. apprently it matters which on i wore. i didn't want to wear my balck one because it would have shown through but my white one peeked out the top and gave me massive cleavage. and double sided tape didn't work. so much for Amu being 10 or 11 huh? i went for a Sexy Amu that day.
oh dear.

Wiggy

My wig arrived this morning!
it's now styled and just witing for the hair spray to dry. hopefully it'll hold out during the day and the dance but i'll put a couple of more layers on just in case.
i'm really happy with how this was to style.
and i feel so relieved to have it done.
it's a perfect colour and everything.

i think i'm going to have to do a tutorial on how to style a wig into high pig-tails.
it's practically effortless and i think alot of people's cosplays would benefit from it.

So much great progress!

I'm really happy with how this is going!

there are a few things i've decded to amend. it's hassle but i'll feel much better about the entire costume if i do them. and as i have time, i can take as long as i need.
so, i've decided to buy more of the fabric and take apart the bodice and double the fabric up because it is just way too thin.
i've also decided to give the skirt the same treatment.
the yellow underneath shows through far too much for me to be ahppy with it so i'll probably just buy more yellow too and end up redoing the entire skirt.

the collar needs to be lengthened as it's too short for how deep the neck line goes.

I was looking through fan translated manga of Shugo Chara today and found a decent picture of Amu's boots.
So i've decided to go all out and do them properly..... no, i have no idea how i'm going to do it. no doubt it will involve alot of chicken wire and papier mache for the bottom parts and also plenthy of fabric and double sided tape to stick the tops to my legs. XD

i'll probably start fiddling tonight when i get bored. ^_^

Next week i get paid so i'll be shooting off to Fabric Land to buy the fabric and also probably get the fabric i need for my Kusumi Koharu Cosplay as that also needs alot of time and careful sewing. ^_^V

Step 2:

Tried fiddling around with patterns last night. but because i've been working and stressing over my uni interview (I GOT IN!!! WHOO!!!!) my brain had turned to mush and i managed to get thetop section of the dress figured out before i had to take a bath to relax. XD
Even though i probably won't be able to go to May Expo this year i'll still make this. simply because my fingers are itching to get back to sewing after so long. and there's a still a possibility i'll be able to make it.
(Japan FTW!!!!!)

In the beginning...

So last night i got out the good ol' chicken wire.
decided to make the sleeve tops, shoulders and boot covers out of it and cover in fabric. simply because it needs so much structure and support and i don't know where i can get that awesome stiff fabric stuff i've used in practically every cosplay since my failed attempt at the Light Pretear...
i dunno what it's called.
in anycase, the other day i bought all my fabric. this is going to take a long while to make and i need as much time as possible to iron out the kinks. xD
