19th April 2013: Remaking Elizabeth.. already..! I'm currently netless so this update is coming from my phone, haha!
So, I rushed this for SunnyCon, and used fabric I had around the house. It looked alright but geez it wasn't accurate at all, so I'm totally remaking it. The corset is staying, but the dress, bolero, underskirt etc is all getting remade \o/
It'll be made from velvet and to match the game references, woop! And Booker can be fixed up and we can do an awesome shoot too before rewearing them for AyaCon!
21st March 2013: Booker Yes I am hideously unattractive in these pictures
Just showing some last-minute progress on Booker! The shirt is modified to add the collar (which needs positioning upwards... and is inaccurate too guh) and the cuffs still need to be added too. The holsters also need making :( BOO
There's not even much to be done on these costumes, but it's taking ages!! I still need to fix the bodice and underskirt for Elizabeth too...
20th March 2013: Completed Choker And thus the choker is done! After painstakingly drawing the patterns on the collar (and most of them looking alright...) it's about as done as it's going to get before SunnyCon at least!
It looks a lot nicer actually ON, and the uneven shapes are less noticable that way haha..
16th March 2013: Choker Progress The choker was the bit I was dreading, but it's turning out alright!
The reference for the choker I was following was the large render artwork of Elizabeth, where it's a blue band with lace and a songbird emblem. Here's my attempt so far.. the band still needs painting with the white detailing, but it's getting there!
The emblem isn't exact, and the paint job is a bit meh due to my awful paint skills, but I think it looks alright so far! The cameo base isn't great either, but it was the best I could find on that scale without being an oval. I think it looks alright! The songbird was shoddily cut out with a pin in fimo :x
Hoping to get this done soon, then it's just a few touches on the dress and the petticoat to do for Elizabeth!
13th March 2013: Coming togetherrrr So, progress at last! A day's work but it's getting there..! Forgive the bad hair and lack of makeup, haha.
The bolero is done, just needs pressing and buttons on the cuffs. The skirt needs attaching to the bodice and it all needs hemming, lace adding then the zip fitting but once that's done the dress is finished!
All in all it's a bit rushed and it's not all that accurate, but I think it's came a long way from being a pile of not quite enough fabric like it was earlier, heh. The sleeves had to be made in 4 sections to ensure they'd FIT, since there were no pieces of fabric left big enough to get them out fully!
I still need to make a petticoat, but I need more lace for that ;x and the choker needs making, but I need the cameo base before I can start that.
So far it's not too shabby, now I just need to get a move on to work on Booker for Arphrial before the deadline!
13th March 2013: FFFFF--- Dis costume.
I thought I had about 2.5-3metres of blue fabric for the dress, but as it turns out, I only had about 2. When making a long blue dress and bolero, this is a bit of a disaster.
So somehow I've made the sleeves in 3 parts and I *THINK* it's going to work!!
That or it'll end up burned by the end of today. Yay
