7th October 2010: FINISSIO! So I finished the cardigan, and put everything together. It's mostly good :) the cardigan being satiny silk slips all over the place on the lycra zentai suit T___T but oh well. The red gem sticking out my back is a bit annoying, but re adjust that.
The gloves fit fine, and the skirt is cool.
All in all, I look like a gardevoir so I think I did a good job :D
29th September 2010: Progress again So I made the front red bit, out of red acetate satin and leftover upholstery foam. I hot glued the fabric to the foam, but I'm not really happy with it :( I messed up a couple of times and it's all creased in some areas, so I might redo it when I get my new foam.
I've started the skirt, all from scratch 8D pinned the white and green bits together, now deciding where to have the slits (on close inspection of the references, her skirt isn't whole, it's made up of four segments) and whether to use interfacing at all...
15th September 2010: Head is finished. So, after a few days, I finished Gardevoir's head.
it looks almost nothing like the pokemon XD this is because the proportions are all wrong. Gardevoir's head is HUGE compare to her body, whereas with me it's the other way round XD oh well :)
Anyway, the white spikes I made, I sewn onto the suit itself, while my wig head was inside it to stretch it out enough. Then I styled the wig so it sits behind the spikes, and also did it so it came down in the middle.
Then I made two eyes out of red craft foam, and painted the shadows/highlights with acrylic. I used an ink pen to do the black outline where the pupil has to be, which I cut out using a craft knife, as those are my holes for me to see out of. I can see about 80% out of this, which I'm happy with :)
Then I hot glued the eyes onto the suit. I needed a black outline for the eye so I dipped my mechanical pencil in black fabric paint and drew out the line carefully. I didn't have a paintbrush small enough you see and with the pencil I could do it accurately :D
All in all a good job. Now for the rest of the costume. Eep.
8th September 2010: THIS IS CREEPY D: SERIOUSLY.
SHE KEEPS STARING AT ME DX
8th September 2010: Spikey thingies Spent the afternoon making the facial spikes Gardevoir has. Once I attach these to the zentai suit, I can style the wig easier because the wig has to go behind the spikes you seeeeee
Now...to sew the spikes on, or to get the hot glue gun out |D
8th September 2010: Wig Picture of the wig when it first arrived.
1st September 2010: Wig arrived! My wig arrived! It's gorgeous!!! I adore it already :) it's a lovely green, and I think it's the exact shade of colour as the material I'm going to use for Gardevoir's green bits, such luck!
My mother says "you've got a green wig now, I think you're set on wigs for now!" and I shook my head pitingly. Oh mother, wig buying is NEVER over...
4th August 2010: Progress! Can't believe I haven't updated this @_@
well, it's in progress :) James and I have been working on the designs of how we're going to tackle the two pokemon. (he's doing Gallade)
We're going to use ZENTAI SUITS >8D so we can look like the pokemon, because they're very humanoid. So we won't be doing gijinka, but the actual design :)
Got Gardevoir planned out ^^ will buy the wig later in the month, my zentai suit is on its way.

Hehe I hope you like it when it's done :D

Another gijinka? But you're right @ it looking purdy :).
Looks like it would go well in a (poke xD) ball-type event.
Freyarule - 11th February 2010
Yeah I love gijinkas a lot xD but I really must stop doing them and do something more different lmao!
I was thinking about taking it to the cosplay ball this year if I can make it too :)
