Kamijo (Serenade - Black outfit with gold embroidery) - Versailles





Whoop! Finally started it. No More Embroidery! Just painting. Making it fit me though is a bitch. Will always be a bitch.... and never stop being a bitch. But i love kamijo too much for it to be too much of a bitch :D The coat should be (hopefully) finished by the end of this week, if i can get some more black thread and some more gold paint.

Dont know when ill get the overskirt and the shirt started.... Hopefully its done before goth weekend....

Edit: Yey! Coat is nearly finished! Just need to finish the collar and then sew it all together! :D

Edit end of 25/10/2011: Finally nearly finished. Got the coat pretty much complete, just need a bit more edging and a lovely rose and i shall be COMPLETE! O.O

Looking really good! Out of interest what brand/type of paint did you use? It's covered really smoothly or did you have to do many layers?

KuroOkaeshi posted on 11 August, 2011 - 16:47
Thankies ^^ i used Dylon fabric paint, and i had to about 2/3 layers of it for it to come out the way it did.

What.... Its actually? No Way!

After a long, long, long time, its finally FINISHED!.... well almost >< just the edging on the skirt needs sewing on but thats easily done. My friend gave me a rose which is attached and then after a bit more painting im finished. FINISHED and ready for goth weekend. Personally to me its one of the best things ive made ever.... im so proud of myself ><

23rd October 2011


Right!!! So the coat is nearly done! Finally! The collar.... oh the collar i hate collars i hate them so much but it looks good. On the main of the coat the painting is finished, i just need to finish the painting on the cuffs and get them sewn on.... blah. Anyways. Me and a friend will be painting the skirt when she comes down tomorrow, ill also be starting to make the longer feather for the corner. Hopefully the tassles will come tomorrow so i can get em sewn on and then. FINSIHED! :O..... kinda shocked actually....

22nd October 2011

Skirt made.

Whoo. Not exactly happy with it, but i still need to put some wire in the bottom to make it fall how i want it to. Looking good though.

20th October 2011


The feathers have come! And oh im so pleased. Sure they arent as long as expected, but they are so gorgeous. Real Rooster feathers. Black with a irridecent green sheen to them. Omg. I am in love. My mum gave me the packet, i opened it and i was like 'Omg... soooo purdy!!!!' *dies happy* Anyways, ill put an image on this journal, but unfortunately it does them no justice, you would have to see them in real life to see how pretty they are.

18th October 2011

Painting progress.

Right, So i have the collar painted. The over skirt shall be cut out hopefully tonight so i can maybe take it into college tomorrow and paint it. (Magic of SDS) I still need to shove the rest of the trimmings on, but today i shall be ordering some feathers and some tassles.... which i decided to hand sew on individually =w= ahh me. I always take the longest way around things. Im pretty certain that i shall have it finished before goth weekend and halloween Yey! So i can wear it to college and for goth weekend.... obvously >.>

16th October 2011


Le cape is done! :D im not all too happy with the way it came out, but when attached, it looks pretty damn awesomes. I got some gloves yesterday that go very very well with it, and i have the collar made. It just needs painting now, and then having the edging attached. Should be ordering the gold fringe later on today so i ish quite happy with le progress..... (the gloves look hella sexy too ><)

11th October 2011


Le trimmings came! :D *is happy* They look so awesome too! I have gotten two bits sewn on allready, not sure when ill do the rest though.

10th October 2011


So. I have one of the shoulder paddy things done :D it fits like a glove >< i just need to get the gold fringe for it and then that will be done (after its sewn together and such. The collar has been cut out and is ready for painting. The cloak is ready for altering and sewing. And i have the material for the over skirt which will just need cutting, sewing together painting and having the trim sewn on. The trim has been order (thank god) and should get here either tomorrow or the day after, which im very pleased about. All in all the main of it is mostly done! :D im not sure wether ill be making the lacey top and the leather belt for goth weekend, but for next year i will have them done. :D

Im still not sure what to wear on my legs or what shoes to wear. I may just go with the big goth boots you can see in my lolita outfits or my undertaker one? Im not sure if they are in those pictures but they might be. Im actually thinking of just wearing some tights underneith the overskirt and then just wearing the boots over them so it looks like the old style 'trousers' that they used to wear in the time that versailles are portraying.

Im even more determined to complete this cosplay because i heard that Versailles were in london a few weeks back and i couldnt go, so i though 'ILL FINISH THE COSPLAY IN STEAD THEN! Good day sir! D:<' haha.

27th September 2011

More Fabric!

Well last weekend i finally went to get more material to finish off my jacket. Due to my good luck -.- (Sarcasm present there) they had like 1/4 meter left of the material i wanted. ALso the red fabric i wanted was like.... £4.99 a meter.... God damn it. So ive been set back, but i should be able to start on the cape and the shoulder covers some time soon. The amount of suade fabric i actually got should be enought to make something.... -.-

11th August 2011


Im pretty sure by the time im finished there will be like millions of journal entries! :D Anyways to the point. Been testing out the cuffs, because im kind of obsessed with the jacket.... ^^ Well, they need to be sewn shut at an angle! Yesh an angle, i might even use a bit of interfacing in them to make them a bit more ridged. ^^ Will be getting some dark red fabric for the cape thats attached. I think Kamijo was going for the Aristocratic super hero, dont you agree. But then again its an outfit for a sad song, so probably not....

11th August 2011


After that i felt like an old woman haha. The sleeves are sewn onto the jacket now and the cuffs will be sew together tomorrow. They wont be attached onto the jacket until i get some decent lace or ribbon or something. The bumpy bits on the shoulders (which you cant see anyways because of my crappy photos :D) will be covered buy the two shoulder peices that have yet to be made. Anyway need food D:<

11th August 2011

Gah! =w=

Well that didnt go as planned. I was hoping for boys to stock some nice gold lace or something but it was this crappy stuff that felt horrible and looked horrible, so i ended up just buying another meter of black fabric, gold paint and some black thread. Bloody fabric shops. Well now ill just go to ebay, probably be quicker and easier to find the stuff i want anyway.
Stupid shops.... =w=

10th August 2011

Pattern peices.

Cut out the patterns for the sleeve and the cuff peices today. Didnt exactly take long, but something to pass the time a little. Will hopefully be getting the gold trimmings for the edge of the coat sometime this week. And hopefully another meter of material to start on the over skirt.

8th August 2011


Ahh! After another 1/2 hour of studying the damn coat i finally pinned it so it fits me really nicely! Damn my shapey body. And Damn you Kamijo for being so slim and having a tight coat D:< It looks like it should now, as it fits my bdy properly, and it should look even nicer when im binded.... i dun wanna do it, it hurts D: Anyways. After i get some more black thread (Damn you black thread for running out D:<) I will be starting the arms and the collar. Although i could start painting the details on now.... i guess.. Gah cant be bothered! Too much textiles for one day.

8th August 2011


Front peices are sewn together. Not finished because not all the detail like the ribbon and stuff isnt on yet, but will be after ive baught it. (should be getting it some time this week hopefully.) The back and sleves are currently being done, and then the cuffs will be the next thing to be painted.

Edit: The main body of the coat has been sewn! :D Took a while like. And when i mean a while i mean about 2 1/2 hours due to mishaps and annoyances. It needed to be made smaller so it would hang properly on me. and now it looks really really nice :D
Not to be weird or anything... but so far i am really really proud of it.... 8D

7th August 2011


Yes. I like it better than the embroidery. It looked crap and the wrong colour with the embroidery, but now with the paint it looks nice and the right colour :D From now on, painting is my thing ^^

7th August 2011

I dont like it....

Ok tried the embroidery. Didnt like it, so im going back to my trusty alternative PAINTING! :D

6th August 2011


Whoop! Baught 2 meters of suade fabric and 4 rolls of embroidery thread. Its a little brighter than the actual embroidery on his shirt and overskirt, but against the black it looks really nice :D

3rd August 2011

Body Prototype

Finished testing out the pattern for it. Found that it was a little too big, but if i make bigger seam allowances then it fits nicely ^^

1st August 2011


Drew up some pattern peices today, using the patterns i had for my tail coat. Will be testing it out on some old bed sheets to see if it works ok ^^ should be getting some material for the main outfit on Saturday.

31st July 2011

Sketch Up

Did a quick sketch of parts of the embroidery (that i could see from the images) so i could easily plan it out on the fabric when i buy it, which should be this weekend. Hopefully....
