Information

I love Aqua's costume design!

This is the first cosplay I've had to do some serious sewing for, which should be fun!
Hopefully for Nemacon.

1/6/12: 3/4 done, just waiting for my exams to finish so I can get the last bits finished. I gave up on the Keyblade as I havent had time but I'm making the Wayfinder charm instead (hopefully).

24/6/12: Finished!! Although I felt bad for not having a Keyblade... It lasted the weekend surprisingly well, although if I wear it again (which I hope I will) I'll have to redo the armour.

Progress Journal

12th January 2012

The wig arrived!!

Really fast postage too!!

The colour is slightly different to the picture, which is actually a good thing cos it goes better with the shade of blue of my top. Its also slightly shorter than I expected, which wouldnt be a problem if I didnt have such thick hair ;( I tried it on and it looks awesome but I need to find a way to get my own hair to lie flat (its naturally very curly and very thick) and not stick out everywhere...

Thankfully I shouldnt have to style it too much other than a little bit of gel :) Never styled a wig before in my life...

Progress 2: Wig

I just bought the wig off ebay. It was hard to find one and I wasnt sure what to look for, but in the end I managed to narrow it down :) Its from hong kong, so it'll probably be a while before it gets here...
And I'm gonna have to beg some advice off a friend on how to style wigs, as I've never done it before O.o

Progress 1

Should have probably updated this a while back...
Top: bought on ebay, cut the sleeves and back away and did some sewing (with the help of my wonderful Gran who's way better than me :P) Still trying to track down the right kind of black material for the corset thing, local craft shops not proving to be too helpful. Bought pink ribbon and white lace, started work on centre badge.
Shorts: bought.
Sashes and stuff: material found, will buy when I have money O.o
Wig: a few ideas on ebay... never bought one before so a little unsure on what to look for.
Shoes: bought black pumps and silver card
Keyblade: O.o Saving bits of card from work. Wont get round to making this for a while
Armcovers: bought white leggings to chop up, will be doing this soon... then making the armour out of cardboard to attach on

Planning on completing this for the next Nemacon, will be updated whenever I get uni applications and interviews out of the way!
