Amy - Soul Calibur IV




Well I weeded both Ropponmatsu and Chii out as that is probobly the crossplay I must do if Misa turns out good because I think amy is so incredibly cute due to her Gothic Lolita style^_^

So I'll be hopefully doin this crossplay sometime in 2009 or earlier^_^

I'll be using this costume for October expo 2008^_^

Well I made a start on it, starting with the ribbons, i have yet to get the ribbon for the hair but in the meantime, I finished making the skulls for the ribbons so they are done atleast, I got my sights on a potential wig but thats just a safty net since am still looking for an Ebay shop that can make a wig like that.

Well I got the fabrics to make the costume, I got velvet for both the front closure and cuffs and also got fur for the top part and basic cotton and all, I have yet to work out the pattern on the pink bits on the cuffs and also looking at making the wig by just buying 2 cirly clip ons and a short haired wig if no Ebay wig commision shop can make the wig like that, am also gnna get the boots aswell, I can't use the Misa Boots as they have buckles and Amy doesn't wear that sorta thing unless they are the exact boots in the pictures, I will use the stockings though as they are quite similar to Misa's stockings and i have those stockings^_^

I got the ribbon and roses for the wig, Yup am gonna make an attept to making the wig myself, so firstly I got the roses and removed em from the stem and got the ribbon, I need to get the wig and hair clip ons and then start my work on using hair wax, if anyone knows a better hair product in scupting a wig then please let me know.

well I got my Tai Chi sword today so I sawed of whats not needed and made it look more like a rapier, I have more work to do on this sword so keep on eye out for it^_^

I'm doin well on the sword so far, unfortanatly after spray painting it, I seem to have used a lil too much varnish on it so it's not 100% good lol

Well I was gonna make the garters for the stockings but I went across some on Ebay which are perfect so I brought them, Yup the stockings I'll be using are also gonna be used for my Misa costume, am gonna pin the garters on the Amy costume so the garters won't fall off.

Well I tried making the pigtails but I seem to had no luck with the slinky so I trioed styling it myself, but both PVA glue and Hair Wax and everything did Squat so I tried using a piece of a bottle and used PVA glue to glue the hair on and it seems to be most succesfull so I shall start working on the real thing as soon as I can^__^

Oh and excuse the hairy legs in the picture, they will be shaved for the expo^_^

well I finished the costume, I think I may have screwed up with the pattern on the closure part at the front but I guess it went kinda well, all I need to work on is the lacy choker and wig and finish the sword and am completly finished^_^ I admit that I still got a few things to do with the costume but are very easily fixed^_^

I toke the costume out from hold and am continueing the progress, I just finished the colar which I used 2 sheets of black lacing and stuck em together with papery fabric in between so it will maintain it's shape and used a glue gun to stick the purple ribbon on it, I also am working on the pigtails aswell, and am still looking for a host wig to put the pigtails on aswell. If anyone knows any wig shops in the UK that doesn't accept Paypal and is relyable and cheap then please tell me about it^_^

I thought I'd take some pictures of the costume with me wearing the wig which is still in progress.

UPDATE - Well the wig is complete but was a failure so the wig you see in the pictures will look just like that, all I need to make is the sword.

Gawd can't beleave I wasted over £20 in making those god damn curls.

Oh, wow! =O I was going to comment on this costume a while ago, I thought I did! XD *Does so now to make up for it* X3 Amy has such a cute character design so I cant wait to see this finished! Hope you dont mind me posting here a response to the comment you left on Road. ^_^V Yeah, PVA works pretty well for spiking wigs if that's what you intend to do, but you have to be careful with the amount you put on. It dries clear so it's not visible per say, but it CAN look clumpy if you put on too much. The trick is to work a small amount between your fingertips and style it in gently, holding each spike in place for as long as possible for the glue to set. I also used a whole ton of hairspray too, to set the entire wig after I'd spiked it. With gravity defying styles like Road, it also helps if you're able to style it upside down so that all the hair fibre is then falling in the direction you want it to set! X3 But yes, that's all for spiky styles. I really have no experience with any other type of style, so it really depends on what you're trying to do. Good luck though!! GAMBATTE~! ^_^b

You constantly amaze me with your crossplays, you really do look like a woman in them, when alot of men crossplaying look like there in drag.
