Information

The first time I saw this show I knew I had to cosplay from it because I love their outfits so much. I decided to do Silica just because hers is my favourite and I love dragons.

This was originally planned for the MCM Expo in May this year but wasn't finished in time so I've decided to put it on hold for now. I don't want to give up on it because I still do want to do the cosplay and I've spent a lot of time and money doing this but I want to take a break from it and I have cosplay plans for the entire next year. This way when I do go back to it I can finish it and make improvements without hating it (it started to get incredibly annoying in the week before Expo).

Fabrics bought

I went on my first trip to a fabric shop today. The one I went to is called Abakhan, which I'd heard a lot of great things about and after seeing it today I can say it really is. I was able to buy everything I need for Silica's outer coat and skirt things.
The red is something called Drill and is exactly as I imagined them looking and feeling, even though I didn't know the name of this material before today. The yellow is very similar and it's called Velour Wool. I think the tags said they're both a combination of cotton and polyester. I think the colours look pretty accurate and they look great together. For sewing them together I was also able to get a yellow thread which is almost exactly the same shade.
I also bought a couple of small buckles, for the little one she has on her sock.

Now I just need to find a way to make the pictures I took smaller so I can show them.
