Kitacon 2014

3rd April 2014: Progress So I failed at taking progress photo for this, so here's a list of what I did:

- I lost the butterfly I made for anime Sena, so I made a new one. I bought a blue plastic folder that matched the background colour I needed, then drew a butterfly design, cut it out and painted on the white highlights using acrylic paint, then used Sharpie for the black lines (it was more durable and a lot smoother than using black acrylic) before bending it into shape. I attached it to the wig using a long black bobby pin.

- I found a skirt that was exactly the same pattern as the one that didn't fit me, only missing the trim. So, I tea-stained some light cream fabric to get it to the correct colour, made ruffles, then pinned and sewed them along the edge of the skirt.

- I reused the old socks, painting a white line (using fabric paint) near the top, then going over with gold leather paint (trying to use things I had around the house!). By using white first, it meant that the gold was not as opaque and didn't require as many layers.

-I reused the shoes, wig and tie from anime Sena.

15th March 2014: Clip progress I lost the old one so had to make a new one - to be fair, it was a bit overdue ^_^;.

It took ages to find suitable plastic to use at the base. Fortunately I found aplastic folder on eBay that was just about perfect. I drew the shape of the butterfly, then cut out a template, transferred it to the plastic, cut it out then created a fold and added the black lines using a Sharpie (it looked a lot neater and cleaner than paint) and the white are using white acrylic paint. The acrylic is a bit fragile but it was the best I could come up with.
Just need to add the clip and it's finished!

26th September 2013: Jacket and Shirt Bought from Bodyline.
It was a full uniform set, but the skirt isn't that great (and also too small), which I was expecting, so I will be making the skirt separately.
It worked out cheaper to buy the set for the jacket and shirt rather than buy them both separately (and I bought it in person from the Harajuku store so I didn't have to pay postage for anything!), and it's pretty good quality.
I will be replacing the buttons on the front of the jacket as they are not accurate.
