Information

Edit - 19/11/11 Kyouko is coming back again for HyperJapanSpring with my lovely Magical girls Kusthegreat and Elle-Ectricity, going to be remaking a few bits, and possibly try to make (orbuyT_T) some boots for her. The wig will be restyled a lot better then the first time (It came unstyled in the bag before Aya >.<) and I've already got a new skirt. I'm hoping to taking in the dress so it's more fitted around the top. I will also remake my staff!

I really loved this anime, it was just alot different to the usual Magical Girl animes. I chose to cosplay Kyouko because I just loved her character, she was just so full of life and confidence where a lot of the others weren't and I liked her back story.

First worn for a group at Ayacon!

yesyesyesss, I can't wait for the group on the sunday at Aya :D Really interested to see what you do with her spear, sounds like you've got a good idea in mind on how to make it & everything :) The prop restrictions are annoying -_- I had to resort to modifying a cheap cutlass sword I found on the market for Sayaka, a full sized one will have to wait untill expo xD

Improvements

Kyouko is coming back again for HyperJapanSpring with my lovely Magical girls Kusthegreat and Elle-Ectricity, going to be remaking a few bits, and possibly try to make (orbuyT_T) some boots for her. The wig will be restyled a lot better then the first time (It came unstyled in the bag before Aya >.<) and I've already got a new skirt. I'm hoping to taking in the dress so it's more fitted around the top. I will also remake my staff!

Final Stretch!

Just on the final stretch, all I've got to do is finish painting the spear and adding the ribbon to the top. The boot covers didn't work at all and looked so bad so I'll just be wearing plain black boots.

7th August 2011

Frilly Frills

Kyouko Frills done! She just needs the ribbon detail and a latch and then the overcoatdressthing is done!

7th August 2011

Frills

Skirt is done!
Still waiting for the fabric glue to arrive so I can attach the ribbon to the undertop.
Currently adding frills to the overcoatdress, once the frills are done all it needs is a hook and eye at the neck and the ribbon to be added.
Having trouble with the boot covers I don't like them at all but these will have to do as I can't buy any more of the fabric.
Spear will be made next week =D

4th August 2011

Finally some actual progress!

Wig is styled!
Skirt is done!
Overcoatdress is currently being dyed ready to be hemmed and have the frilly bit and ribbon added!
Boot covers are almost ready for velcro and then white detail!
Undertop is waiting for fabric glue to have the ribbon!
Spear is waiting for a spear head!
Socks were already done!
Sleeve things were also already done!
Contacts. . .are too expensive for my poor self OTL

I have made loads of progress today, tomorrow I'm hoping to hem the overdresscoatthing and start adding the frills and as soon as my fabric glue arrives to ribbon will be added to both that and the undertop, I'm going to continue working on the boot covers right now while the skirt that I ended up having to paint (damn you 100% Polyester) drys.
Then I just need to at least make the spear head and she's done!

Skirt and being resoursful

I am very very short on cash but really want to get Kyouko done for Aya so I'm being resourceful!
I bought bunch of fabric when I wanted to make Sakura from Naruto's cloak thing, I pinned it all together but never ended up making it so I'm going to be dyeing that fabric and using for Kyouko's over coat instead as I have yet to buy the fabric for that. I'm just about to start on her under shirt with scrap peices of black fabric and a plain tank top and there's a skirt in post ready to be dyed pink. I had a lot of trouble making the skirt and in the end bailed and bought a white one. I may in the future make one but right now I don't have the time to.

Contacts

These are the contact's I'm hoping to get, the colour match is as best as I can get, but I think they'll do the job just fine :)

Skirt and Boot covers!

I started working on the boot covers this weekend and lets just say Im glad I bought so much material, I messed up a little but I should have the basic red part done soon. The skirt I started today, I will hopefully have it finished tonight or tomorrow.
I off to go buy the material for Stockings swords and the spear head for Kyouko in a moment so hopefully some progress on both of those will be made this week!

Wig Unstyled

The wig arrived today!
I changed my mind with what to get again and in the end got a base wig with two ponytails as I thought it would be too thin if I just got one, so here it is, I'm really happy with the colour and I don't think styling it should be too hard, it's also not ridiculously long like some I saw.
Also not sure I mentioned this but I got the leatherette for her boot's so I'll be making the boot cover's soon!

Start of Gloves

The grey fingerless gloves I bought off ebay and I made the cuffs today at work out of cardboard, I just need to paint them or cover them in fabric and then they are done :)
Sorry for crappy photo!

Spear

Due to Ayacon's prop restrictions her spear will be half chain half normal, the normal part with the spear head will be 1m in length with the rest in it's broken up chain form.
So far I've got the pole which I bought today and the gold paint for the pole. I've just ordered the chain's online and will hopefully be getting the material I want to use for the Spear head fairly shortly.

Wig

Just bought a wig for this, will start styling when it arrives. It's different to the one I posted in an earlier journal, it's a better colour match and will hopefully flick the way I want it to. Will be buying the fabric very shortly and start working on it as soon as HyperJapan cosplay's are finished~

1st June 2011

Spear

To get around the 1m prop restriction at Ayacon I've decided to make her spear half normal straight form half chainy broken up form. I'll be buying all the fabric for her tomorrow and once I've got some progress done on my HyperJapan cosplay's I'll be working on Kyouko.

5th May 2011

Boots

Got some boots on eBay at a bargain price (£6!!) Hoping to get some pleather (I think it's called?) to cover these with for her boots.
Small update is small because I can't buy any fabric for this until after Expo!

2nd May 2011

Wig

I was originally going to get a wig with a ponytail however there just wasn't enough volume, so I'm buying this wig (which is conveniently half the price of the ponytail on I was going to buy) and then add volume and flicks and the like to it.
Going to look at fabric tomorrow (although I can't buy any of it yet OTL) and will probably start on her spear next week because I'm just really excited to get this started!
