10th November 2011: First wear and remakes! Being Kneesocks was oh so fun, I was a little self conscious cosplaying her, especially when I saw Sushimonster as her (And those amazing Twins as S&K)but I still had so much fun. I am planning on wearing her again with my Scanty (ElleEctricity) at Amecon. Having worn her at Expo there are some parts I want to remake, I plan on making the ribbon a lot more structured, styling the wig more, possibly making a better horn and making new scythes.
A BIG thank you to my lovely Chuck who looked after me through the day, holding my stuff, touching up my make-up and walking nice and slow when my foot started bleeding from the amount of blisters I had (Surprisingly not from the shoes I wore as Kneesocks but ones from the day before)
Kneesocks will be made better then ever by Ame!
26th September 2011: I want youuuu So so close!
I have two things to do and then I'm done!
I've added the larger studs (buttons) to the top and skirt and have made the horse shoe type thing for the skirt too. All that needs doing with them now is adding the ribbon that joins them, I need help with this so that won't get done until I visit my friend later this month.
Second I need to paint my scythe blades and connect them to the poles.
They are ready for painting and I've shortened the poles to expo standerds so this should get done whenever I buy the paint!
I'm so excited to cosplay Kneesocks it's unreal <3
23rd September 2011: SlowlySlowly Almost done!
Bought the zentai today and the large studs for her top and skirt, once they arrive I just need to add the ribbon joining the top and skirt and paint the scythe blades!!
19th September 2011: Spikey Spikey My Spikes finally arrived!
The choker part of the top is now done and both bracelets are finished!
All I need to do now is make the Scythes (In Progress) and add the ribbon, horseshoe thingy and the large studs to the top and skirt Oh and I need to buy the Zentai!
13th September 2011: Start of Scythes This is the base shape for the Scythe blades, next step is papermacheing the entire thing to make it nice and stiff and strong, and give it a nice finish, then it's onto painting them and attaching them to the poles!
10th September 2011: Make up test Test shot for makeup, wig and horn~
The wig still needs styling but at least I know I can cover the elastic for the horn which is good.
Had to use my Lilith contacts as my eyes completely rejected my Kneesocks ones OTL
But they look okay I guess.
5th September 2011: Top Half Progress! IgnoretummypleaseOTL
Anyway, another top half test shot! This time with Horn, choker and 1st bracelet~
Still waiting on my spikes to add to the bracelets and Chocker and still trying to figure out how to do the big studs on her top
Got so much done today *proud*
Left to do:
- Add ribbon to top/skirt
- Add all the studs!
- Make Scythes
- Get Zentai
Not much left to do!
5th September 2011: Bracelet Kneesocks bracelet all pinned together, this was really tricky to put together and I’m surprised I didn’t prick myself. Still needs the spikes (Which are yet to arrive) and then some velcro so I can get it on and off and then it’s done!
Onto the next one~
5th September 2011: Horn~ I made the horn today, I'm hoping the elastic will be hidden my the wig (I'll have it going behind my head not under my chin) My studs still haven't arrived but I'm just about to start making the bracelets and possibly adding the ribbon to the top and skirt :)
2nd September 2011: Top! Top half of Kneesocks cosplay as of today~
Still lots to do, the top needs its stud detail and straps as well as the neck thing. It also needs a more secure way of joining at the back as I bent down and it just popped off O.O
May have to just sew it together and fight my way into it XD
Armbands need poppers/velcro so that they stay on my arms, also need to start on the bracelet thingys but the studs haven’t arrived for that yet.
All in all I’ve made loads of progress today, quite happy with myself!
- Make bracelets
- Add straps and choker to top
- Add stud detail to top and skirt
- Add ribbon detail that joins the top & skirt
- Make the scythe heads
- Get Zentai
- Make Horn! (I keep forgetting I need this >.<)
2nd September 2011: Skirt and glasses Worked on the skirt today, it's pretty much done, it just needs the studs and horseshoe type thing, I'm really happy with how its come out so far though!
The glasses arrived as well, they only just fit me /bighead but they look okay.
Still waiting for the wig and studs to arrive, will be buying the zentai as soon as I have the funds too and I'm going to start working on the Scythes this weekend~
Too excited for this <3
25th August 2011: Contacts~ I had some trouble finding contacts, I wanted some that were green and yellow but the only nice ones I found didn't actually look that great in person so I went for these instead :) I think they work pretty well ^^
25th August 2011: New Wig 2 updates in one day~
I got paid a day early so I've just bought a bunch of stuff for Kneesocks, I bought some more studs to continue with her accessories and some glasses for her. I also bought a zentai for another cosplay and if it's good enough I'll buy the same but in red, I also went a head and bought a new wig, the colour looks like a good match and it's got a thick ponytail so it -should- be okay.
Photo's when it all arrives ^^
25th August 2011: Skirt - Start So after the hectic weekend that was Aya I'm back and ready to get working on Expo, I started with Kneesock's skirt, I've got the basic shape here ready to be hemmed and sewn together, I'm going to be making her little horseshoe type thing out of airdry clay as it's nice and light as well as possibly her little studs on the skirt as the ones I used for the armbands are too small.
I get paid tomorrow so I'll be buying everything else I need for this cosplay then, so expect lots of updates soon~
4th August 2011: Small Update Only a small update as I'm working on Ayacon cosplay's at the moment, I really want to get started on Kneesocks but they must come first. I found these gorgeous shoes in New Look and just had to get them. They aren't as high as I had hoped but I couldn't walk in the other higher ones I wanted OTL So these are the one's I'm going to be using as I can actually walk in them XD
Once Ayacon has gone by I'll be buying the Zentai and continuing with her accessories.
15th July 2011: Ready Set Go! Been getting stressed by HJ and Ayacon cosplays so I decided to work on something else and here we are. Ive started on something simple, her armbands. I already had the PVC from my Mr Taxi cosplay and the studs from my RunDevilRun Cosplay. Ive only made one so far and I havent added the velcro or however I decide to attach them as my arm size may change before October.
I just took a strip of black pvc, hemmed it and added the studs. Its only pinned on at the moment just to show.
Im hoping to enter this into the Masquerade so expect lots of progress photos ^^
Edit - I have now made both armbands, ready to have the velcro/popper nearer October.
