Costume Information

Time Taken : About 1 and a half months

My first full 'all by myself' costume that I actually felt was 'wearable' to an expo/con... it was all done by hand and was just me experimenting without a real clue (so it's not the best costume, but hey!) I do like to edit things on it and so pictures may vary between cons ^_^ I hope to keep getting better at this!!

So far worn at:
MCM Midlands 2012 (Telford)
CICAE 2012 (Cardiff)
Cardiff Amisoc Cosplay cafe 2012 (Cardiff)*same day as CICAE
Amecon 2012 (Keele)
LFCC 2013 (London)
Ayacon 2013 (Warwick)
And random events in-between :P

This is one of my favourite costumes as it's one of my favourite characters ever, I'll be up for wearing this any time!! And I'm always looking for a Ghibli group to join ;)

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.


...and the work on this costume starts again ¬_¬ (Posted 24th July 2012)

So a couple of things bothered me about this cosplay when I made it and one of those things was the ears!!
They weren't a size/shape that I liked and they were stuck on a little wonky~that's what I get for sticking them on at 2pm the morning before MCM Midlands!!! :P
Anyways as I'm hoping to take this cosplay to Amecon I thought I'd re-make the ears... so I've started with a cardboard base, then I've paper mache'd on top and finally I've been putting plastiroc on top (which I really love to work with-I used it for the necklace pieces and the spear thing).
Here's a WIP of the ears with paper mache and plastiroc...I've cut them a bit since this as I realised I made them too big (I never measure anything!!) and they are not very smooth either (they have lodes of bumps etc in them :3 oh well~let's just see how it goes!!)
Afig x

Finishing in time (I think)!! (Posted 17th February 2012)

Well I've spent the last couple of days trying to smarten this costume up, I'm sure there is a lot more I could do to it (as this is officially my first 100% made by me costume with all the trimmings!!) but I think I'll just stop and wear it tomorrow and see how it goes :) I can always work on it again some time I suppose (like re-making the shoes which look sooooo bad lol!!!)

Making a face! (Posted 29th January 2012)

Wooooooooh! Happy with the progress! Got a nice wig (which needs a little trim) in a local shop for cheap ^^ have started the mask and ears too!!! Also Dyed fabric with tea for the shoes!! So I hope this will be finished on time, I've have a lot on at uni and work which has slowed me down ¬_¬

Getting there... slowly :P (Posted 22nd January 2012)

Instead of making her spear from scratch I got a free cardboard tube from a material shop, I shall paint this when I have paint ^^ have been making teeth today for the necklace out of some Plastiroc stuff and the white vest is made too (It took me ages as I sew everything by hand). Shoes, wig, mask/ears and spear left now and 3 or so weeks left :)

Shoes (Posted 8th January 2012)

Found some very cheap slippers (£3 in new look) and I hope to put material over them for her shoes :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D Will start making her spear today from Cardboard and paper mache!

THE DRESS IS DONE! (Posted 30th December 2011)

The dress is done, the dress is done, the dress is done :) now I can start on everything else!!! (Only after I do some university work though!!)

Second try (Posted 29th December 2011)

Ok so yesterday I went shopping for all the materials for this costume (minus the weapon and necklace) then I came home for a sewing session with my younger sister. She made a fab Piplup hat and I made the dress for this costume, which although was 'fine' it's not really going to do and needs to be re-done therefore I have more material today to have a second attempt :)and I'm going to use this persons pattern to try and get a more accurate result!

Getting started...? (Posted 28th December 2011)

I am going shopping for materials today to start making this!! So excited!! Hoping to make it in time for Telford over a month away :)
