5th February 2014: Complete Costume~ So.. not many entries here but Madoka is finally done!
I'm hoping to write up how everything was made and post it all soon :D
30th August 2013: Materials It begins!
Mostly cottons (pink, yellow, red, white), some polycotton (dark pink) and two different types of white organza. The white in the bottom left is 'fairy dust organza' I've wanted to use for about 4 years, and finally have an excuse to (even if nobody really sees it as it's for petticoats.. meh)!!
My machine atm is bust so there won't be any major progress for a while but I'm going to try patterning things like the petticoat and skirt very soon :)
26th August 2013: Wig Progress! So the wig is underway.. a small job, but progress nonetheless!
The wig started as a Chibiusa wig, but I didn't end up needing it. The clips were detachable which meant I could test different methods and dye colours easily, since I wanted a nice pink for Madoka without it being too bright or too dark, and I can make her pigtails as big or small as I want when styling.
First I tried copics, which looked great but took forever to colour on the test wefts. That and I had to mix 3 colours for the right blend, which would prove expensive. Instead I took what little isopropyl alcohol I had left and mixed it with pink and purple dye and sprayed it - voila!
I dyed the wig itself and the ponytail clips - hoping to style soon!
