Lily Evans (Gryffindor Robes) - Harry Potter



Photos

 


Information

Well, Luke's doing James and since I'm oh-so predictable, I'm doing Lily!

This was worn on the Friday of Kitacon, during which time we got a photoshoot off MangaGirl, too!
This costume was assembled for the most part from eBay, and Whimsically, but I need to give a special mention to fellow CI user Sephirayne, who we commissioned the robes from. They're so so amazing! Thank you hun!

I had a lot of fun as Lily, so will be wearing her again- although hopefully with a new skirt, as well as better shoes- to LFCC, and possibly also May Expo!

Tutorial

Here's a link to the tutorial that I used for my skirt! http://www.starfirephoenix.net/hppoaskirttutorial.htm

It's amazing! :D

6th July 2011

I herped and then I derped D:

So, I went about making a new skirt out of Garbedine today but... I totally did the measurements wrong!
The skirt has to overlap and whilst I took into account the extra needed for pleats, I didn't account for overlaps!
It's not a total writeoff though. My small skirt served as good practise for the layout and I now have 1/4 scale pattern pieces that I drew so I'm guaranteed to succeed tomorrow.. It's just annoying that it's so late, the fabric store is closed. Here's hoping they have what I need tomorrow, otherwise I might cry! Hahaha XD

Other than that, Lily is ready to re-wear! I wanna comb the wig but that's no big task. I even bought new more comfortable plain black shoes. Yay!

Wig!

My wig is here and I'm in love with it :3 It's just... Amaze @_@ I'll try and get a picture up if I can :D

Delivery!

I've had some of the tihngs arrive for this costume this week :3 So far my wand and patch have arrived, and today my Whimsic Stuff arrived too- they're great!
My skirt also arrived from eBay but because my ass is huge, it stretches it out and makes it look like a pancil skirt, not a pleated skirt. Kinda embarassing but here's hoping it will do. I'm taking it to Luke's tonight to get his opinion.

More Shopping

I did some more shopping for Lily this week!
Earlier in the week I ordered my cardigan, scarf, and head girl pin from Whimsic Alley. With any luck they're now well on thier way and will be here in time!
Midweek I Ordere a schoolgirl skirt in grey, with pleats! Here's hoping it'll do the job but the biggest they had was 40" waist, and I'm 41" with 43" hips so I really hope I can squeeze into it... If not it's 11.99 down the drain and back to the drawing board for that!
I ordered a Gryffindor patch for my robes today too, but that's quite a minor detail.
As for my wand, Lily's doesn't exist *sigh*. So I ordered a Hermione wand off eBay to make do with. I'm hopefully getting a Noble Collection wand (although I'm not sure whose yet) for LFCC.
Finally, my wig! I ordered the coppery red one in my previous Journal. I'm hoping so so hard that it gets here in time but I'm pretty worried, unfortunately. Still, fingers crossed, eh?

I still need knee-high socks and shoes, but all in all, I aint doing too badly!

More Wig Spam

I have been linked this wig;~ http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PW398-Auburn-Curly-Long-Cosplay-Party-Wig-/4001861...
The colouris red anf brown, which is what I wanted, AND it's curly! So I'm thinking about this one seriously. I just need to know if it's a reputable seller and then mull it over a bit more like i do....

Possible Wig and Notes

Well, i've sourced another wig, this time for Lily.
It isn't brilliant but it's the best I can really find at the moment;~ http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Wavy-36-PUMPKIN-ORANGE-long-fringes-curly-cosplay-...

I'm having a lot of trouble debating whether her hair should be ginger, or should have a brown tint to it. In a lot of fanart she's ginger, so I've headded in the direction, but then I think, maybe it should be more red... and I really can't decide ¬_¬
