Completed

Imma gonna list this as complete, even though I don't have the proper shoes and the bag isn't perfect, but their not much chance that I'll need to wear it again TT-TT. I'm so sad that I can't wear cosplay everyday; I'd be too embarrassed.

The con was great, I had a few photos (I was so confused about what to do when I was first asked), and got some great hugs!!!!

My first homemade cosplay!!!!! I'm so happy that I did it!!!!!

Squeeeee!!!!

Eeeek!!! The con starts today!!!!! I'm not going until tomorrow, but still!!!!

I have been working like a madman since the start of this week and seriously, I'M ALMOST FINISHED! I am so close!
I almost finished the bag, which is completely covered in glue, but there are some parts that just won't be done on time like all the decoration.
I found the belt (finally....), but it's a kids belt so I picked out the biggest size I could find.
And squeee!!!! I ordered my wig two weeks ago, and it came on time!!!!!I'm so happy with it!!!!! My first wig...... *sigh*
Bought tons of makeup for it. I've never worn makeup before so I hope it works.

I still have to re-hem my skirt, (it's a little too indecent for me) and add the belt things to the legwarmers and hopefully I'm done!!!!!

I'm sooooo excited!!!!!

Yay!!!!

My (third) skirt is done!!!! I'm almost done! I just need a better jacket, because I can't move my arms in the one I've got. T^T And the WIG!!!!! I'll have to somehow convince my parents to let me get one online.

Now that I really think about it......I still have quite a bit to do.

Tie, tie, TIE!!!!!

After many a day moping around the house, I found an awesome tutorial on a tie (took too long to find; I am so dependent on tutorials.)

I finished it in the day, which is pretty fast for me......(I'm sooo slow). I now have a new appreciation for those of you who don't have a sewing machine. You guys are so inspirational.

Anyways, it worked out really nice, but it's too small because I used the litle boys pattern, but I think I can make it work.

Hopefully I can get the second skirt started tomorrow!!!!

Getting those legwarmers done!!!!

Pretty simple things to make after I thought very deeply about it, but course which perfectionism getting in the way I managed to stretch a 20 min job into about 5 hours. Well, at least I'm not so bored any more.
I found it a bit difficult to do the top of the leggings, I ended up with a few unwanted pleats because the fabric didn't match right. This is officially the first thing I have made with elastic, and I had no idea hat I was doing.

I'm debating whether or not to put some elastic at the bottom to make them more poofy, but I'll just see what I can get away with now.

15th January 2013

Bummer....Let's start again!!!!!

So, I just realised that I didn't have enough of the same fabric to make the leg warmers......... I went to the store to get more of it, but of course they don't sell it anymore. That's for not working on it earlier!!!!!!

Anyways so now I have another lot of fabric that is really simiar but just not good enough to use (darn my perfectionism) fabric, so I can make a whole NEW skirt!!!!! I don't know what I 'm going to do with all these skirts I've made.

As well as all this, I bought a new zip to use which I lost in the city less than an hour after buying it. T-T Luck is not on my side this week.

Please pray that I get this done by the end of this year.

Skirt

Yay!!!! The skirt is just about complete and I am so happy with it. It's really not as short as I imagined; more like too long. I just need to bring it in a bit.

8th January 2013

I actually started.....

Today I actually started working on this again. I have cut out and pleated the skirt after having the fabric sitting in a box for over a year, but I still need to sew it together. I can't finish it until I get a zipper, and I a little worried about how short it is.....
I'm so excited!!!!
