Wakka... why are we on Gaia?

It must be love <3

and our journey begins anew...

Lulu and Wakka

All you need is determination. If you have that, you don't need love

You truly are clueless. Are you sure it's your memory that's the problem?

 


Information

Decided to make the entire outfit now as there were too many things i really didn't like about my first lulu.

To be worn at Ayacon 2011 with my fiancee as Wakka.

4 cuts and 3 sewing machine needles broken so far... damn you belts!

Luminescence posted on 11 August, 2011 - 21:55
This is pretty :) What is the grey fabric that you're painting the lace pattern on? It looks really nice :D

FusionRose posted on 11 August, 2011 - 22:36
It's just grey drill cotton fabric that i bought from fabric land, was originally for another cosplay but i used it for lulu instead lol xD Thanks everyone for the lovely comments! x.

SlimDefinition posted on 22 August, 2011 - 22:11
You looked so awesome as Lulu. Epic!

Nomes posted on 22 August, 2011 - 22:49
I'm in love with the detail on the edges of the sleeves and skirt.

The DETAIL ON THAT SKIRT!... WOMAN! MARRY ME!

FairyPorchQueen posted on 24 August, 2011 - 22:06
The edits have made this costume look even more special

Natsumi posted on 27 August, 2011 - 01:16
Really awesome Cosplay <3 Nice attention to detail *_* only three needles broken? That's actually impressive considering I managed to screw up a needle just making -one- belt XD

tripletriad posted on 27 August, 2011 - 16:33
The detailing is wonderful, and you look absolutely gorgeous <3

Your Lulu is absolutely stunning <3

Viola posted on 16 May, 2012 - 17:30
You make a really pretty Lulu (: Must be hard work to make this costume ._. Have you styled the wig by yourself?

FusionRose posted on 17 May, 2012 - 13:38
ooh no this lulu wig I didn't style xD Styling wigs up into ponytails are my weakness lol. The costume was very hard to make but so worth it in the end <3 and thanks! ^^ x.

Progress Journal

Bottom of skirt pattern (Posted 11th August 2011)

unlike the other "lace" detail where i just drew it in a long line, for the bottom of the skirt i drew each part separately. So lots of flowers, leaves, sunshines, tyre things and squibblys. here is a picture i took when i drew half of the shapes to put on the bottom of the skirt.

Top Progress (Posted 10th August 2011)

Sleeves and Corset, before i put the fur on.

finished top half (Posted 10th August 2011)

It's 5:15am, i have been working non stop for 14 hours to get the top part (corset, sleeves and fur) finished and it's done, but now even the TV has gone to bed so i should too. Pictures will be uploaded tomorrow!

More lace detail (Posted 9th August 2011)

Added to top of skirt. Still needs to be painted over and add the little bit of gold detail. This is taking so long >.<

Announcement! (Posted 9th August 2011)

I would just like to take this moment to declare - that after this cosplay is complete - i do not want to see another belt ever! X_X

Contacts (Posted 7th August 2011)

Tested my contacts today and i absolutely love them! I don't have the lashes on in the picture because the ones i got were too big and lulu's lashes are really subtle so it would look a bit too stupid xD I'll be buying the lashes that i wore for my quistis v.2 as they were really purdy =D So no lashes for this picture xD

Pattern WIP (Posted 4th August 2011)

I've started drawing out the pattern on grey cotton with a blacl fabric pen. The one in the pictures is to go on the sleeves. I'm also in the middle of drawing the pattern o nthe top of the skirt and then i will start on the pattern at the bottom of the skirt. This has taken me 2 and a half hours so far and my back hurts so i'm going to have a break xD fingers crossed it will look good!

Adding grey lining (Posted 2nd August 2011)

I've added the grey lines on using a hot glue gun, thank you whoever invented the hot glue gun, you are a life saver =D I'm quite proud of the result.

Corset stage 1 complete (Posted 2nd August 2011)

I've done one side of the corset with the black material and here's a picture just to show the difference between the two sides.

Adding black fabric to corset. (Posted 2nd August 2011)

I decided to add black fabric to the corset as i hated how shiny the corset was. I pinned tha fabric on then sewed it using the sewing machine. I added extra fabric to the front bottom part of the corset to change the shape so it resembles Lulu's corset more.

1st July WIP (Posted 1st July 2011)

Things i have and what to do for this cosplay.

In Progress stuff:
1) I have the Jewelerry from my V.1 however i'm going to re-bead them onto something that isn't wire as it really annoyed me last time >.<
2) Hair sticks, however i might shorten them down as they are a tad too long.
3) PATRICK! (For all of you who don't know, he's my Cactuar.
4) Wig, i hated that hair extension and it was a pain in the butt =/. I've already got the Wig now =]
5) I've already got a black petticoat which i will be working around.
6) I've already got a corset which i will be highly editing by putting a non-shiny black material over the top and then the grey detail also.
7) I've just ordered 4 metres of a beautiful black leatherette that looks like a very dark grey compared to the black material, an effect i really wanted as that what lulu's dress looks like.
8) Belts leftover from my old lulu, i'll also be buying some more and i will actually be putting this on my securely as they fell apart so easily from my last lulu >.>
9) Stockings i have from my v.1 - this time i'll use spirit gum so they actually stay up xD

What i still need to do:
1) Buy grey fur (I'm going for the in-game image of her this time to make it more different from my V.1
2) Buy lots of light grey fabric paint for the detailing. Or i might cut it out of a light grey fabric and stitch it on.
3) I must buy suitable shoes this time damnit >.< No bare feet again for me!
