still not happy

i spoke with the Rinoa expert at the weekend and she agreed with me the overlayer is too yellow so i went back online and bought the right colour so tomorrow i will remake that lol nothing like making more work for yourself

31st July 2013

Version 2

i went to get my old on out of my wardrobe last weekend and saw it was in a terrible state holes in it and fraying :( so lets make a new one :)

so i have used stretch fabric and this time i have gone for a more yellow colour, i accidentally bought the wrong colour but it doesnt look too bad

OMG its done this has been the worst thing to make i really wish i had picked the maid outfit lol

so yea slight alterations to the main design now i hae ribbon around the middle with a little line next to it so it just looks a bit more lol so yea here we come cosplay ball

26th October 2010


i belive that this is the hardest costumes ive made, working with lyrca is a snap working with this strange see through easily rip material = :( ..... so yea was like yey nearly done not the best outfit but it shall do and then disaster strikes a rip down the side :O, so has to make a triangle to let out the top layer which is a pain, the bust part looks silly and well it clings in the wrong places, im not big or anything but im petite with a tyre lol so yea suck in pants it will have to be but then i tried it = :( cos it didnt work so yea it dont matter this is for cosplay ball ill prob be too drunk to care lol

23rd October 2010

really nearly there

woot it really nearly is complete but one thing i realise after doing this is that being left handed is great cos its unusual but its a pin when everything is made for right handed people, even posing im doing wrong cos im a lefty lol

21st October 2010

90 % done

im so happy tonight especially after the tragic end to yesterday's dress making. The bodice and skirt have been fitted together, and yes it is slightly different to Rinoa's design, but i need a bit of support lol, and really what is left is to attach the ribbon and the zip, and then umm hem the edges hopefully it will be completed tomorrow night :D :D

20th October 2010


this isnt turning out right the bust part looks more like madonna than rinoa, and the dress is see through :( andthe thin layer over the top is rippin everytime i try and sow :(
