Rin Kagamine (MAGNET) - Vocaloid 2



Photos

 


Information

Rin is my favourite Vocaloid, and MAGNET is my favourite Vocaloid song right now ^^ Rin and Len's version is just lovely ^^ Also, butterfly headphones are made of cute.

I've designed my own version of this, as there's no official reference. It will be a black dress with a lace underskirt and yellow ribbon detail. Around the waist there'll be a yellow sash tied at the back with a bow. It shall be worn with black arm warmers, black tights and my cute black shoes c:

I've made a black velvet ribbon choker to go with this. It crosses over at the front, with a butterfly charm at the base of and a yellow bead on the bit that crosses over.
The headphones are normal headphones, with wings made from craftfoam, yellow acetate, copious amounts of superglue and sparkly gems.

PROVISIONALLY SET FOR MAY EXPO but this depends on when my exams are :/
Test-ran in Cardiff Anime Society's cosplay cafe. Seemed to go well enough, though I definatly need to wear heels with this rather than flats, as the skirt length otherwise makes me look short XD

Progress Journal

22nd February 2011

Back to work

Ehh got all preoccupied with other costumes, namely Selphie (WIG :/), but continued progress on this today by starting the lace underskirt. It's all sewn, just needs to be attached to the dress somehow.

Planning on getting this done for Saturday for a cosplay cafe, though I wont have my shoes (left them at home like a fail)

21st January 2011

Arm warmers

Are made c: enough said

EDIT When I first made this journal, I had only made the arm warmers, and not put the lace on them. This has now been done c:

12th January 2011

Dress

Started making the dress today. I still need to hem it, make the underskirt and put in the straps and decorations.
Also made the sash to go around my waist c: I love the fabric (Its part of what I bought for Kes)

Other than finishing the dress, I just have to make the arm thingimajigs. Cant believe how quick this one is going!

21st December 2010

headphones

Started making the butterflies for the headphones today with craft foam and yellow acetate (spelling?)~ I also have some sparkly gems to make them pretty ^^ Just need some yellow pipecleaners now
Looking online, I may have just found some headphones for a base o.o Going to look on wednesday... fingers crossed!

EDIT my lovely sister went to HMV for me while I was at work and got me some headphones. The wings are all cut out and stuck together, I just have to paint the phones, and attach the wings and sparkles

EDIT2 (24th Dec) Headphones are done. I just have to decide whether to cut the cords or not c:

19th December 2010

Two steps forward, one step back

Got my wig yesterday ^^ (its been at home for over a week :/) it's so lovely! I just have to style the fringe with the hairclips I bought today.
Also made my choker today, all I need is a yellow gem to finish it off~

I looked at headphones again today and realised the ones I was going to buy aren't right at all. How annoying! I thought they went over the head, but they go round behind, which isnt what I want at all. ALso the phones aren;t smooth so it would be hard to paint on the pattern. Boo!!

9th December 2010

Finaly got fabric

Decided to go with jersey cotton to make this. I find it easy to work with and its nice and soft c:
Also bought some lace for the underskirt.
Wig still hasnt arrived *hmfhmf* but it should do by next week.

30th November 2010

Wig!

I bought my wig for this the other day ^^ Its really cute, and I can't wait til it arrives. I also have seen a perfect pair of headphones to customise and aren't too expensive c:

Possibly going shopping for fabric tomorrow, depending on how much I spend on Christmas presents~
