21st October 2012: Jacket Issues After stitching up the dress and the jacket and trying them both on at the same time, I've decided the jacket still needs further alterations. This is because I feel like I could be more fitted than it is at the moment. But I'm not going to worry about this costume any more until October Expo is over.

25th July 2012: Alterations As I mentioned in my last journal, the white dress ended up a little bit shorter than I had intended, so to compensate for that I've decided to deviate from the design a little bit and make the orange jacket longer than the white dress instead of the other way around.

11th July 2012: A year later... After starting this cosplay well over a year ago now I'm finally getting around to completing it.

I've now added the jaggered ends to the bottom of the dress (which has ended up shorter than I expected)

Kadaj006 will hopefully be assisting with the making of the tail because after a year I'm still none the wiser on how to do it. I'm thinking craft foam and fabric :D

25th July 2011: Beginings Today I have decided to get on with this costume. I still don't know when I'll be wearing it but I will at some point, maybe Expo.

I got the basic shape of the white dress cut out, and the neck-scarf

So we're getting there slowly but surely.

Not too sure how to go about the tail... That'll come later

I've been working on it off and on for around 2 years. And I keep saying I'll do it for the next event... but possibly May Expo!
