Serena
Pokemon X and Y

Cosplayer: CrystalNeko

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

3rd July 2013: Hat 100% All I did was hand sew on the ribbon \o/

Cba to wear the wig now. I'm kinda hoping the hat will fit my head even with the wig on... :'D;;;;

Not sure why the picture is tilted to the side OTL. It's fine on my PC =___=;

3rd July 2013: Complete! Yay! All sewn together finally! Most of it took ages as I had to hand sew everything except the collar. However I handstitched it to the top because the top is stretchy.

Time Taken: 2hrs

28th June 2013: Accessories I have had too much fun making awkward faces with those sunglasses. I think they are forever hilarious.

I didn't actually pay £5.50 for that bracelet, got it for basically half price!

Sunglasses are from eBay.
Bracelet is from Claires.

26th June 2013: Skirt 95% Basically done, woooo!

I lost my sewing needle and all I have left to do is handsew the buttons and hook and eye. And then I need to buy some stick on velcro (because if I use sew on then the seams will show on top).

Time Taken: 1-2hrs

26th June 2013: Skirt 70% Woooo, my flappity flaps are getting there! One done, other one to go, although the pocket is already made.

I love a cosplay with pockets. And I get to wear a bag (I'm not making it for JE, to much effort!!! But I will carry my normal bag which is the wrong colour but who cares \o/), this is actually the best cosplay ever in terms of practicality omg <3

Time Taken: 2hrs

26th June 2013: Skirt 50% It will look better when ironed XD

Base is all sewn together! Just gotta make the flaps now. I cocked up the zip because it was such a wide waistband and I cut away too much fabric so had to install the zip funny, but strategic positioning of the flaps will hide this hurrrr :')

Time Taken: 1.5hrs

Had to hand sew the top of the waistband to hide the raw edges and so that the stitches wouldn't be seen on the surface.

26th June 2013: Skirt 30% I pinned everything first to see how it would all look. Nothing is sewn or ironed yet so apologise for the pleats. But it's a good indication of how everything looks.

The main bit of the skirt is knife pleats and the waistband is box pleated and will probably be sewn in place so that it doesn't shift.

Time taken: 45mins

Gonna go sew it altogether now and then make the side bits.
