Information

Magnet version of Luka for Kitacon 2014 - Sunday - to be with Jess aka Noodle-chan as Miku and we have Kaito and Ren too!

Should be in the talent show doing the Magnet dance with Miku (omg-why-do-i-do-these-talent-shows-stress!)

Now... long story short this was a commission by EZCosplay - cost approx £73 - I would NOT recommend them based on what I've got as I have a lot of edits to make - it didn't come as a dress - was not the right size - and was in two pieces!

I had to buy extra fabric to extend the top and attach to the skirt and had to employ my mums seamstress skills to do it (because I couldn't take the skirt apart and the top was complex in its stitching)

Anyway! Look out for lots of dancing....

Progress Journal

16th March 2014

Wig done! Vocaloid ready!

Wig styling took approx an hour, the fringe took the most time to later it to a point right ^^

I have also cut the front back a bit to frame the face and also the long front curls have been shortened in a layering effect so it's more natural.

I re-attached the bows today on the dress with fresh pins so they are firmly staying put now!

So after much amending this Cosplay is now finished! As I just need to put shoes with it and take a full photo :3

15th March 2014

Dress done ;)

Dress is now complete! Bows attached by pins! Just the wig to style now!

Luka will go to the ball.....

Okay so progress made but still not finished - trying to make the top half overlap onto the skirt to hide the waist band has been.. well effort!! Thanks to my mumsies amazing skills luckily this cosplay will be done by next Friday - the top back half needs sewing together and a zip adding, there is also now lining in the top to weigh it down so it doesn't flip up! This has been quite complex to fix the existing costume ><

Apart from that I am getting some ankle boots this weekend and need to style my Luka wig.

Luka edits

Luka Magnet Vocaloid Cosplay - progress! Extended top half - needs stitching and a zip added later

24th February 2014

Plan put in action....

I'm thrilled that my senpai/teacher of all things dressmaking aka my mum is gana help me deconstruct the top and we will extend it - it's actually a very small size 14 after measuring - the back needs widening - from the under bust the top needs extending with the satin. The back will need the white and lace detail added - which I have materials from previous cosplays. As currently got Velcro to close the too at the back (not a very good addition as the top has lace on it!) I will be removing this and adding a 10' zip - then when the top is finished and fits we will attach it to the skirt - luckily the extra material only cost £5.

When that's all done I just have the wig to style!

21st February 2014

So much to do now...

Cosplay arrived and I won't lie I'm disapointed.
Not an easy fix - it's supposed to be a dress - it's in two pieces - a dress is never in two pieces.... The top is way too small it's not an 18 at all - the fact that it's not joined means I have to extend the top or make a brand new one because the skirt is supposed to sit on the hips - not my waist - so watch out for fixing times!
