Companion cube

Cosplayer: BlueberryTale

Variant: Gijinka

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

9th April 2012: Plushie finished After 6 hours I finally got this plushie done!
Was worried I didn't have enough felt for the corners and sides but managed to have enough. I used pink fabric paint for the pink lines as well.
It's not great but for Kitacon it will do, and afterwards it can be a mini bean bag for my cat XD

8th April 2012: Plushie so far Managed to find some stuffing to stuff this thing. I wasn't planning to make it this big but compared to my cat, it's big! XD

Aiming to finish it tonight.

6th April 2012: Plushie I spent 4 hours sewing on all the hearts onto the main body and sewn all the sides into a cube shape. I bought 2 bags of cotton balls for the stuffing but only covers the bottom part of the plush (Explains why plush in pic looks saggy.)
So will be using whatever stuffing is lying around and hopefully have this done before Tuesday.

2nd April 2012: Outfit update! Bought grey shoes and grey leggings so cosplay looks a lot better. Also my friend let me use his pink wig. It won't be in a pigtail like in the photo at Kita, I didn't want to take it out as he tidied it up for me so I wanna keep it safe til next week. Just the plushie to go!

28th March 2012: Plushie update Started making the plushie on Monday, so got all 6 sides of the cube along with 6 circles and hearts. All I got to do is sew all the sides together, sew on circles and hearts, add stuffing, sew on the corners and sides and paint on the pink lines. Going to try and have it done in the next week!

11th March 2012: Tidy up This is going to be tidied up a bit before Kitacon. Still need to try and make the plushie (or just buy it online.)

I'll be using a different wig for Kitacon because I'm letting my friend use the current pink wig I have and style it for Marluxia. Plus the wig I'm borrowing is longer and more of a softer pink.

Will be running around as Companion cube on Saturday and Sunday night.

6th February 2012: Finished Forgot to add on extra pieces from the other day so sewed them on today and tidied everything up.

3rd February 2012: Update Random note! I handsewed this cosplay while watching Titanic XD

I used a grey dress I had for the past 3 or 4 years as the base and sewed on ribbon (tricky stuff to sew with!) Then I used felt for the other pieces. I also made the hair pieces.

18th January 2012: Design Very quick Companion cube gijinka design (hence why it looks crap XD )

I still need to buy the base dress, however by backup plan is to use a grey dress I have and alter it like this. I already got a long sleeved grey top for underneath and the leggings so they don't need alter that much. For the centre heart, I'm going to sew it onto some ribbon and make it into a belt (the dress I have is kinda baggy so I want to tighten up the waist area) so the grey parts at the sides with have a gap through them so the ribbon can be tied at the back. I was going to go for a hat but I decided to make hair clips because I want to add all 6 hearts to the outfit so 2 on the dress, 2 on the wig and 2 on the shoes.

I enjoy seeing how people adapt non-humanoid characters into gijinka! And I love how you've done this one. It *is* cute, and works really well.
