Finally the beast is 100% complete and done. Do you ever get that feeling where you work for so long on a single cosplay, that you end up really bored with it and are itching to do something else? Because that's how I feel about this cosplay now. It's taken about 10 months from start to finish, albeit not constant work on it. Still, I'm glad to be able to work on something else now.
I'll put this away into the wardrobe for a bit, and maybe bring it out again in a few months =)

I was super stoked to win a judge's choice award in the masquerade at Auchinawa <3 I got some great feedback from them afterwards and thus I have a long list of things I want to finish, improve and make so that this cosplay is even better next time =)
I hope to enter this into the Eurocosplay prelims this year, so definitely need to make sure I'm on top of my game!

Bodice Progress (Posted 14th September 2014)

Just a little start today =)

The bodice is a basic corset - plastic boning instead of steel - to which I'll add faff and frills at a later date!

Also, the colour looks a little blue here, but I promise you it's purple!
