June/Akane - 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors


Kitacon 2014


I've just gotten into 999/Zero Escape, even though I've known about it for ages, thanks to quite a few people I know being huge fans!
Despite seeing loads of images and stuff cropping up, I'd never seen June until I started playing the game myself. When I did see her for the first time, I was smitten with her design. She's so cute!

I have never sewn so fast in my life!

SNOOD: A long long strip/loop of black jersey fabric. This was mostly sewn by my mum while I went on some errands for her. Many thanks to her!

DRESS: Purple double-knit jersey with deep purple jersey details.

TOP: A black top with strips of various colours of jersey (sensing a theme here?) stitched on.

SOCKS: Black knee-high socks with yet more jersey fabric strips.

WATCH: A plain red and black watch I bought from eBay and then painted details on with nail polish. In the future I aim to remake the strap to resemble what it looks like in-game, but it'll do for now!

With Devil_Trigger as Junpei

KITACON INVASION: I had such a blast in this, and James was a fab Junpei! I was a bit too warm when I wasn't in the hotel lobby or outside but other than that, this was easily my comfiest costume c: I intend to do something more with the watch, and possibly shorten the snood a bit, as it kept shifting about, but other than that the costume turned out surprisingly well for being thrown together in a week c:

By some miracle and a little help from mum , this is actually ready in time for Kita! The pattern took a couple of days as cutting, pinning and stitching each individual shape (diamonds and flowers) was a very time-consuming process! The snood was made today. I had to run a couple of last minute errands today so mum very kindly stitched a large section of the snood c:

Time is not on my side right now haha! Today I managed to paint my watch and make the whole base dress for this AND pin the bias binding edges before work today! Let's hope I continue with this speed c:

So the stripey sleeves are done! I've used a black long sleeved top as a base (gonna boil), and attached the striped sections onto the arms. The striped sections themselves were time-consuming. I made a base layer of the blue, and then folded a black strip over the end. I then measured, cut and stitched on the purple stripes before finally adding in the two yellow. I then turned this into a tube, matching up the stripes, and stitched it to the black top. It's turned out 3D rather than smooth, but sewing each stripe section individually rather than building up would have taken even longer, and time is (quite appropriately) NOT on my side!

Got fabric for the dress today! It was hard to judge what to get as it looks like a sweater dress in the sprite but thin and clingy in the official art. It's also two completely different shades of purple! In the end I went for a smoky mid-purple double knit jersey. So I'm going more with the offical art in terms of fit but the in-game art and sprite for colour.
