24th September 2015: Downgrading Sadly real life (work and stuff) interfered to the point where I will be doing the first seasons version and will upgrade to the S2 verson at a later date. It had gotten to the point where I thought I wont be attending the con at all but now its all sorted I can carry on with Fate :)
I still need to;
Finish the buckles and other worbla pieces
Sew skirt to leotard
13th September 2015: EEEEEPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WIG ARRIVED!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!
The cape is about done too :) Made a start on Bardiche too and gonna try to get the rest of the materials for it tomorrow.
2nd September 2015: Taking shape The cape is in the progress of being shaped right now to become in proportion with the collar :) Had some free time before work yesterday so thought what the hell? :) Just need some wadding and some more black thread before I can do the final touches!
The skirt is now hemmed, just need to finish the rest of the bodice before pleating it and sewing it onto it.
I just ordered some Worbla for the armour and Bardiche :D
18th August 2015: Sewing is so fun ^^ Made an official start on Fate today :) Most involved shaping the leotard and making the PVC strips.Took longer than I thought to make as the strips needed to be sewn in with the zips while having to check how it fits on me lol
The stripsneed to be sew in properly now i got the leotard mooostly right. Still need to hem the armscyes and the legs.
Checked the skirt to see how well it drapes :) looks quite pretty pinned onto the cosplay.
16th August 2015: Wig selected http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Fashion-Long-Milk-Gold-Blonde-Cosplay-Wig-With-Two-Clip-On-Ponytails-JF-/281566621518?hash=item418eadaf4e
Gonna order it soon :)
26th June 2015: FABRIC!!!!! Managed to source much of the fabric Ill be needing from around my bedroom and sewing room. Fabric everywhere!!!! Just a few bits an bobs to buy and the red lining for the cape. I have some red PVC still left over from Hikaru, and that is after a few failed attempts to get the circle right for Rock Lee's jacket AND Ladybyg's mask ^^ The white skirt fabric seems to drape nicely.
Starting a new job soon so I can get my wig on my first paycheque working there to treat myself ^___^
