Information

Maybe I'll wear jeans or if not I'll brave the shorts that I've made(I'm not wearing just pants though lol)!!

Mostly bought items, I made the top (by hand -it cost me two needles)
I also made shorts, stockings, shin pads and a belt but I chose to wear just jeans in the end and I'm glad as it was more comfortable :)

Maybe wear flesh coloured leggings under it if you feel uncomfortable with going out with just the leotard-type one on. Might help a bit

Progress Journal

Finished...but I've been told I look like a prostitute :/ (Posted 8th August 2012)

I have finished making the 'Shorts instead of pants' version (It's in the reference pics but replace black pants with shorts)... BUT I've been told I look like a prostitute (I'm not sure if wearing shorts instead of pants has actually contributed to the prostitute-ness, also I think the studs on the jacket don't help)...

Sooooo... maybe I'll just wear jeans or something :/

JOYS! (Posted 31st July 2012)

I got paid and bought a jacket for a fairly cheap price!! :) BUUUT...it has studs on it ¬_¬' I think I'll live with that though!!

Updates~~ (Posted 30th July 2012)

Made some shin-pads outta cardboard and polystyrene, they look crap lol but this costume isn't all that great anyways so I'm not too bothered...

Still no jacket D:
And I look quite fat in this costume to be honest :P or at least it makes me look fat ;) so I need some toning tights!! wow...and I'm only 23!!!
Hoping to buy some contact lenses soon :) and then I just need to do some editing to the top and it may be classed as 'wearable'!!

Woop...short shorts (Posted 10th July 2012)

So after looking for a while for short shorts I found some during my holiday in Taiwan and now I am just editing them to make them a little shorter. Overall I am quite pleased and you can't see my bum when I wear them which was my main concern :D (apologies to any hopeful perverts at Ameocn!!)

So when I get back I will buy a jacket (spotted one I like so *fingers crossed*), finish making the shin pads, edit the top (including adding see-through straps) and buying contact lenses.

Added extras would be purple aviator sun glasses and a gun, anyone wona lend me some?? (;.;)

Still in progress (Posted 16th June 2012)

Thanx to my lovely friends S-Lawliet, Sisceal and Tedward for some great advice both face2face and online!! I was kinda feeling a bit lost with this, but I think I know what I need to do next (some alterations)!!! I thought I'd post some pics anyway so anyone who cares can see it's progress...still a bit to do though!!! And please feel free to give me advice if you can think of anything as it's still very much a WIP and will be right up until Amecon I think ;)

Soooo... (Posted 3rd June 2012)

Yesterday I finished the stocking things, which wrinkle lodes because of the material :( and then I started a mock-up for the top.
I have made a pattern type thingy today...well I cut up paper anyway (seen in the pic) and have been sewing since! Also I had some great advice from Sisceal about using a strapless bra for this :)
The only issue is that I sewed some stuff the wrong way round without noticing and have to retrace my steps!! (I had sewn on the outside lol)

Well better keep going...

Shopping and sewing~ (Posted 10th May 2012)

Soooo...had a girly day off work and uni today with a friend. We had a shop for materials and then a sewing session!

I am currently working on the stocking things(and have been all day due to the fact I have no sewing machine). The material I chose is a bit odd I'll admit, plus I bought waaaay to much of it which kinda sucks. Then I've messed up the sewing :P which also sucks (please no laughing at expo).
The highlight of the day is experimenting with double sided body tape stuff that I bought for the stockings and top :)

Have been shopping!! (Posted 5th May 2012)

Ok so, to get me back into the swing of things I took a day off from work, uni and general life to go shopping :)
I found some things for this costume that I'm hoping are guna work ^^ I'll admit I've paid a little more than I hoped but I have better quality stuff than I'd planned...because the cheap shoe shop has stopped selling the boots I wanted :( and the cheap gloves were all too big!!

Therefore I purchased my boots and gloves in the local army prep shop :)

I also came across a little purple boob tube thing that I hope I can work with (extend with more material) for her top.

This costume is going to cost sooooo much as I still have a leather jacket to buy (eyeing one up on ebay atm) among other accessories ¬_________¬ but I'm going to hopefully finish it by Amecon and be able to wear it *squee*!!

Also has anyone seen any fitted black hotpants around that aren't lycra or spandex?? Because I haven't spotted any yet!!
