11th March 2012: Tidy up With Kitacon being nearly a month away and I may have a photoshoot with this, I started to tidy up things.
I sewed up the holes that were underneath the sleeves of the jacket (fail thought I did that already but it's done now.)
I bought the skirt from primark a while back, but it was calf length, so I cut off the length I didn't need and hemmed it up so it's now around knee/above knee length. Originally was going to get or make a pleated skirt but this skirt still has flowiness to it that I like.
I need to tidy up the boot covers as the lace is coming off so need to re-sew that, but shouldn't take too long.
Even if I don't take this with me to the photoshoot tomorrow, at least I'll have it ready for Kitacon.
28th December 2011: Finished! Just finished the sash today.
After so many trials and errors, this cosplay is finally finished!
I have the skirt sorted as well but it's currently hiding somewhere in my room XD
Better photos will be up somepoint!
28th December 2011: Nearly there! Just a wee progress pic to show what I have done. These were taken a couple weeks ago so all the lace detail has been added on since yesterday.
27th December 2011: Jacket finished The jacket has been tidied up and I have replaced the gold trimmings with lace which was hand sewed along with the lace around the jacket which took me most of the afternoon. I also sewed on the 15th and final button onto it.
16th December 2011: Make up and wig test My camera is really crappy but I used fake eyelashes to "fem" them up a bit. I still need to figure out how to do the scar and also need to cover my eyebrows with grey makeup or something. Also need to style the fringe.
16th December 2011: Update <<< Preview time again!
I finished the boot covers today and hand sewn the black lace detail onto them. I have also sewn the lace onto the collar of the shirt.
Still to do:
Tidy up the jacket and replace the gold trimmings with lace or cover it.
Fix up the boot covers.
Alter the skirt.
Make the sash.
Style the wig.
15th December 2011: Update Recently bought the last of everything I need to finish off this cosplay. I got white leather material and made the boot covers. This was my first time making them as well. Still need to tidy them up and add the rest of the detail. Also got material for the sash and currently making that, and also bought the skirt which will be altered. The wig arrived yesterday, it didn't have the style of fringe that I wanted so going to style that up and maybe take at least an inch off the length of the wig. 50/50 chance I'll finish this by New Year.
3rd November 2011: Update Recently got a shirt for my graduation (Thanks to my mum for buying it, only 99p!) so after it I'm going to sew on the lace around the collar. After trying on the shirt and jacket together I've decided not to add a collar to the jacket. I'm worried about it looking "cluttered" if that makes any sense and it would be hidden by the shirt collar anyway. I'll see when I have it all done.
Once my recent assignments for uni are done I'm going to make the sash and finish off the jacket. The wig will be bought soon so I may have 80% of the cosplay done by the end of the year.
29th October 2011: Jacket update I have now sewn on all the trimmings and 14 buttons onto the jacket. Still a bit of tidying up to do around the collar and the sleeves. I've decided that I will be adding a collar somepoint. I'm also planning to add something along the side of the jacket near the trimmings because they fray easily so in order to stop that I need to add on something else, so either more lace or red material like the sleeves. It's nearly there!
5th October 2011: Update Finished up the jacket and sewn on the sleeves and added the lace. Ended up breaking a needle while sewing the sleeves but luckily found another one. Theres still a bit of tidying up to do plus adding the buttons and rest of the detail.
30th September 2011: Change of plan Ok so instead of making the jacket on Wednesday, I made it today. Turns out I wasn't going out til after 6 so I thought that gave me time to make the jacket. I drew out a pattern from my Glaceon jacket and cut the main body of it from the velvet and sewn it altogether. I still need to do the sleeves and sew them on, but I'm glad I got the main body of it done. Hopefully will have it done by next week then just to add the rest of the detail.
30th September 2011: The plan Ok so I got my materials last week and haven't made much progress XD but the plan is that on wednesday (if uni work is not in the way) I'm going to make a start on the jacket, so then it will be mostly done and it's just adding bits and bobs to it. I'm aiming to get it done around Christmas time and worry about the wig and boots after (unless someone gets me the wig for Christmas <3 ) So I'm going to work on this cosplay at every free chance I get and pray I get it done by the end of the year.
I recently bought lace for the cuffs of the jacket but it looks too big so I'm using it to make the cravat instead. Will post photos of progress soon!
13th September 2011: 7 months to go So I have 7 months to get this done in time for Kitacon. No backing out of this one now that I have entered the masquerade for it (insane much? XD )
I'm going to go fabric hunting so I can find the right material for the jacket. As much as I want to use velvet, I'm worried incase it looks tacky or something, but if it comes to it I'll use it as a last resort. I'm aiming to start the jacket and finish it at least by new year (depending how busy uni keeps me) so that the bigger part of the project is done. I'm planning to either buy a pattern or draw up my own pattern again like I did with Glaceon, I'm unsure about the collar since you can't see it in the design but I'll add it on if I feel I need to. I'll also be adding more detail to the jacket, recently found a button that looks like the Prussian eagle so thats going on the sleeve of the jacket. The boots are going to be my biggest challenge. The easiest thing I think to do will be adding a bow to Gilbird's head XD
