Information

Worn at MCM London May 2014


This is the first cosplay I made myself and I'm really proud of the result.

Everything was made from scratch apart from the trousers, which I just tailored to fit me, and the boots, which I just modified.

Huh, it's fitting how I just saw this Cosplay 10 minutes after I finished watching Book 2: Spirits of The Legend of Korra for the first time Funny coincidence aside this looks great.

Progress Journal

15th May 2014

Arm Band

I painted the blue circles, put the blue trim on and sewed the whole thing together. By 1am I was done. They cosplay is now complete and ready for Expo.

10th May 2014

Sleeves

After a while, I finally got them done.
It also took a few tries. The elastic I had for the white trim wasn't stretchy enough and it felt like it was gonna cut of my blood supply so I scrapped that and cut up some white fabric from an old stretchy shirt. It looks and feels so much better now.

Also I found out that Seychelle Gabriel, Asami's voice actress, is coming to Expo and I kinda freaked out.

19th April 2014

Eye Test

I tried on one circle lens and put makeup on that eye. They're actually lighter than the picture shows because I took this photo in artificial lighting with no flash. On a side note, I really need to get my eyebrows done.

15th April 2014

Circle Lenses

They came today, I'm just waiting for the solution to come so I can't try them on just yet.

3rd April 2014

Circle Lenses

They have been ordered.
As for the rest of the cosplay, I've been really busy lately but luckily it's just the little things left.

13th March 2014

Boots and Trousers Complete

So now, the whole bottom half of this cosplay is complete. I apologise for the photo quality, the lighting was very bad.
I finished the other boot and I took in the trousers because they were too baggy.

12th March 2014

Boots

I finished with one boot. I'll do the other one tomorrow.

12th March 2014

Skirt

It's fully completed now that I've sewn the fur trim on. Now I'm covered in this fur and I never have good reactions with it. Let me take a shower before my eyes go red.

11th March 2014

Make Up Test

How do you wear makeup for a character who doesn't wear any? I'm good with the results, however.
The first picture I have my hair up in all the tubes, sorry you can't see the main ponytail. Right now you're gonna have to deal with my curls because I can't be bothered to straighten my hair for a make up test, also, badly photoshopped eyes because I don't have the contacts yet.

10th March 2014

Hair Pieces Completed

Craft foam, tape, blue fabric, tacky glue, white shoe laces and hot glue. Oh, and white paint on the inside. It took 3 months to make this because I'm lazy.
I might do a make up test tomorrow with these.
I've already started work with the boots but, again, I'm lazy so what should take me 2 days is taking me a week.
Pray that I get the motivation to finish this within this month.

8th March 2014

Almost There

The rest of my materials needed came today so all I have to do is finish the cosplay, then I'll order circle lenses.
I can't work on it today because I have work.

7th March 2014

Trousers

I bought hospital scrubs and they seem to work out fine. A bit on the baggy side but I can take them in.

4th March 2014

Nearly Finished

I Just ordered everything else I need for this cosplay minus the contact lenses.

28th February 2014

Arm Band

I've finished sewing the base and I'm going to paint on the details. I just need to wait until pay day so I can buy some fabric paint along with everything else of the cosplay.

28th February 2014

Shirt

I finished sewing the shirt at 3am. I totally lost track of the time and now my sleeping pattern is ruined... Oh well.

26th February 2014

Collar

I'm gonna keep the shirt I made because it's totally un-noticable when it's short.
I've sewed on the collar and the white part on it, I'll finish the arms off tomorrow because I'm falling asleep on my sewing machine.

25th February 2014

Shirt

I'm not happy with my shirt, it's too short especially when i tried to sew on the collar. Let me try this again. At least I have enough fabric.

24th February 2014

So Far

I haven't done anything to the shirt since my last journal post.
Today I made the sleeves, and the front & back skirt. The sleeves need to be lined with white elastic and the skirt needs fur.
I'm proud of my first time sewing :)

20th February 2014

Shirt

I've finished sewing the base of the shirt. All I have left is the collar and the white piping.
For my first time sewing, this went rather well :)

19th February 2014

Fabric

I finally got around to buying the fabric I need :)
Check my Shopping List to see a list of which fabric I bought.

12th January 2014

Hair Pieces Update

Still a WIP, but I remade them so they are stronger.

9th December 2013

Hair Pieces WIP

Made from craft foam. I might scrap this and use milkshake straws instead. All I need is the fabric to cover these and some white trim.

8th December 2013

Boots

I bought a pair of fake Uggs but they were too short so I lengthened them with craft foam. I just need to get some fur, brown fabric and to paint the soles brown.
