7th January 2011: Update This is a list of how the cosplay is coming along so far...
- Made newspaper patterns for the main kimono style dress
- cut out fabric for top and sleeves
- cut out lining for sleeves and pinned together
- decided to dye hair black for the cosplay
- tested out what colours to line the top and skirt with (the shiny fabric ontop is quite thin so thinking either red or black)
Next few stages
- cut fabric for skirt, obi and bow
- add linning to the rest of dress.
-make leg warmers
^^ I am quite confident with this cosplay so far.
