21st March 2013: Cosplay progress: Boots part 2 BOOTS!

OMG I’m so happy with these XD
Basically I couldn’t afford proper boots, so I made Boots cover/leg-warmers to go over an old pair. I spent ages! on them and they’re really comfy.
also, eyelets can suck a d*ck! DX

Cosplay is almost finished!

20th March 2013: Cosplay progress: Boots Making Boots 83
well, boot covers at least.

I can’t afford Mid-length boots so I’m making covers to go over old ankle boots. I’m hoping it works lol.
Using old Tesco bags as templates, as they form around the leg brilliantly :D

18th March 2013: Completed: Skirt! Finally this cosplay is getting somewhere!

Finished Amy’s skirt. Decided to go with the blue that’s used in game as opposed to the purple seen in the concept art/promo art.
Went with taffeta in the end as its robust and has a nice shine to it.

I have horrible knees T^T

13th March 2013: Cosplay progress: The Wig part2 Wig Update: so after spending some time playing with the curls I realised I wanted them to be quite thick on the top, meaning the length was shortened, so now I'm in the process of making another strip to attach onto the bottom and make the curl longer. Simple, yes? :P

13th March 2013: Cosplay progress: The Wig So here goes my first attempt at making Drill Curls for my Amy Sorel Wig. I’ve been reading up on it and I decided in the end to make a version that has the pigtails permanently attached. This makes it easier to glue the hair to the scotch tape.
So far its proving to be very messy lol but seems to be going well.

I’m following a tutorial on DA by SparklePipsi that you can see here: http://baggy666.deviantart.com/art/Drill-Curl-Tutorial-335773737

more to come tomorrow 8D

22nd February 2013: Cosplay progress: Ribbon Skulls Ok Amy has these little wibbly-bastard-detailed skull things in her ribbbons. So these are my attempts lol.
I tried to get them exact but it was damn hard and sculpting really isn’t my strong point. I tried making a mould but that went disastrously, so in the end I made them individually using Sculpey.
They’re painted using Citadel Silver paint as a base, then a black and white acrylics to create a stoney look. Once the paint was dry I simply coated them in a layer of clear nail varnish for shine.

18th February 2013: Cosplay progress: Collar some WIP’s of the Collar for Amy.
Made the ribbon rose by hand 83
Ran out of pink ribbon to finish the bow, so that’s something else to add to my shopping list, lol :P

Went to the fabric shop today and it was shut 8C
So boots will have to wait a little longer.

18th February 2013: Cosplay progress: Shoes Ok so far my Amy cosplay has been slow going because, as well as doing this awesome hobby, I also sort of make a living selling my work at conventions, so the last 2 weeks I’ve spent flailing around getting things together for Midlands Expo.
However, that’s now out of the way and cosplaying is back on track :3

Just ordered some super cheap (less than £5 peeps) black ankle boots to make my boots for Amy. The reason for this instead of buying actual mid-length boots is because I’M SKINT AS BALLS!! Seriously even cheap mid-lengths are like £15-£20 and I just don’t have that kind of cash.
So I’m using this tutorial, courtesy of JellyCosplay ( https://www.facebook.com/JellyCosplay?fref=ts ) to make a sleeve. That way, they’ll definitely fit and I can customise them exactly how I want.

Also working on turning white fur brown. 8I
You can imagine how this is going to go, lol.

Pics to come in the next few days.
Wish me look :3

17th January 2013: Cosplay progress: Rose Panels So the Rose panels are almost complete.
They're both drawn free hand with biro and then filled in with Dylon Fabric Pen. I've then gone around the edges with embroidery thread, all by hand, because I hate myself (and my sewing machine doesn't have an embroidery setting lol)
