20th May 2013: Too Young 3 Started on the dress today, cutting out all the pieces for the skirt. My eyes hurt so much and my vision is still slightly yellow from staring at the lurid pink for so long. Bought some very pale blue sparkly embroidery thread for the sleeves, and I plan to put a bit of subtle embroidery around the bottom hem for an extra touch of princessy goodness
Slowly chuffing along with some progress, finished the big-ass-bow! Have had to enlist mum to help with the dress because I've managed to become horrendously ill and am sewing at a snails pace. Won't get the embroidery done for expo boooo
Suddenly progress! Currently working on the sleeves. Sadly my plan to do satin stitch failed epically so I've gone for a backstitch which I will jazz up when I'm not so pressed for time!
14th May 2013: Crown The crown base is now finished! Just needs painting.
I made the base out of craft foam, but I felt it looked too flat so I decided to cover it in milliput to make it look rounded. DUMBEST IDEA EVA.
Hopefully once it's dry and has been sanded, it'll look a lot better, but it's really obvious how inexperienced I am with this stuff!
I accidently mixed too much and so decided to add a bit of swirly detail to use up the leftover stuff (I hate wasting it, it's expensive!) and to hide the worst areas haha

I would definitely think about doing cinnamon bun if you want to get a group together for this ^^

Saz, please be cinnamon bun! That would be so inordinately epic!

As much as I'd love to try and cosplay Cinnamon Bun (how the heck would you make that costume?/ :P) I don't think I'll be at MCM May since our Sailor Moon group isn't going to be there, not sure yet. Either way I really would like to see your Princess Bubblegum cosplay, which version will you be doing??
TheStarlightFairy - 25th November 2012
I plan on doing lots of different PB cosplays, she has so many!
For May MCM I plan on being her 13-year-old version, because then I can wear my short pink wig (not wearing the long one anywhere near mcm!)
Siouxsie James - 25th November 2012
haha I see :) I love that version!! <3 you will look awesome!! Let me know if you plan to do more versions etc in the future :)
