Progress Journal

Test wear! (Posted 25th May 2014)

All in all I had very little casualties in this costume!
One tassle came off and a bead came loose from the pocket so good to know!

The wig was styled using straighteners to give it a bit more of a frazzled/wavy look!

Sashes (Posted 23rd May 2014)

Finished the sashes - they were stitched into the waist band of the pants to keep their shape. I'd like to add more to this but for expo it'll have to do!

Pocket details (Posted 22nd May 2014)

Finished the pocket - all sewn on - hand stitched blarg ;_;
With two sewn in brushes dipped in glitter <3
Actually a functional pocket for once to!

Hat complete (Posted 21st May 2014)


Edit: ok so I should probably write a bit more about this. I think the hat has taken the longest time to make - ever. It's a mass of hand stitching which I actually hated previously. If anything I don't mind it so much now - I've gotten that used to it XD It has some weight to it - but not too much luckily! I'm thinking of securing it to the wig, it has a tight fit but it might be safer to add a few stitches!

There's not really much else to say - it's a lot of fabric/ trims and pretty ;]

Hat details and side bow (Posted 16th May 2014)

Progress on the hat details!
That ribbon took hours, mostly down to stitching the stripes :sob: It's lined in black brocade to match the longer strips. Will be sewing it onto the side of the hat soon!

Hat patterning / trim stitching/beading details (Posted 13th May 2014)

Some of the patterning finished and adding the first trim of many!
Sewing in some little pearl/beads into the stitching randomly also to give it a bit of contrast in all the gold.

Trim is the same used in the cape but folded in on itself to shorten the length of the zig zags to fit the hat/reference!

Hat base (Posted 8th May 2014)

This took literally ages ;_;
I was never happy with the fabric shape/sit/gather. Base now finished though - next step is to just throw bows and trims at it till it's covered. Whatwasthepoint oTL

Swag Pantsu (Posted 14th April 2014)

The finished stars on the pants!
Used the same technique as the first cape, puff paint to give them an impression and 3D edge.

Cape#1 Progress (Posted 13th April 2014)

I've still got one or two tiny things to add to this but the pattern is done!

Cape #1 Details (Posted 12th April 2014)

Nearly finished the patterning on the cape~!
I've used the same technique on the pants for the gold stars. Puff paint and glitter. It's fair to say I'm living and breathing glitter right now...
In regards to the stars // I've not been precious about the pattern nor the shape/size of the stars to give it a hand drawn appearance. This is a personal taste I decided to approach with in this costume since Relm is a young artist I decided it would be nice to have a little home made feel about certain parts :]

Cape #1 (Posted 9th April 2014)

Cape #1 nearly finished! Once the secondary trim is sewn down I can add the green stars - I'm using a combination of puff paint and glitter to create them and leave a hand drawn appearance <3

Arm warmer #2 (Posted 1st April 2014)

This is the hidden one! On her right arm~
In the original concept art [Amano] Relm has one smaller arm band [left arm] and a transluctant full arm warmer on her right. I've followed the design and here it is finished =D

Arm warmer (Posted 31st March 2014)

Mostly finished the little arm warmer on her left arm!
My favourite part is the back of it - whups XD;

Pocket details (Posted 30th March 2014)

Finished the pocket for the side of the pants!
Massive artistic license taken since you literally only see the ribbon close to her foot and the tops of the paintbrushes that are in it! I'm considering having mine a bit higher when I sew it on.

Top remake (Posted 29th March 2014)

I remade the crop top - making the top edge more curved and ensured the pattern was fully symmetrical all the way down. I improved the fit and zip closure.
Also started sewing the stripes onto one of my ribbons - soon to be made into a bow!

Sandals (Posted 28th March 2014)

Just waiting for the lace to dry and then I can glue the gems on <3

Base (Posted 12th March 2014)

Ignore the ribbon strip, it's so I don't lose it.
Nearly finished with the base pieces!

Trouser bases (Posted 11th March 2014)

Will probably need stuffing, there's a lot of puff in these..

Crop-top base (Posted 4th February 2014)

I saved some diamond zips from an old article of clothing <3
Also in love with this fabric

Wig base (Posted 23rd January 2014)

Materials! (Posted 22nd January 2014)

Not quite everything but the majority - literally all I could fit in this shot!
3 hours worth of deliberation.
