26th June 2011: What's left to do... I'll update with a picture tomorrow (/later today after i've slept)
On the plus side, I'll be ready for Japan Expo~
On the negative, I only have tomorrow to finish ;--; Which means I have to actully do some work oTL
Still left to do:
Applique black pads to oven gloves
Make 3 tiered collar + white trim
Sew oven glove things to dress (with cord)
Finish sewing the fur to the left boot
Possibley shorten large male pants if I have time
aaaaand I think that's it ;D
I wanted to use purple (manga) cord to join the mitts and dress, but none of the shops had any so i've settled for pink (anime) and i'm just gunna' go with it.
The fur I used on the boots.. In the anime it's pure white. But after all that traveling she's really going to have super clean fur? I think not. The manga references I have in colour show it a little dirtied down, so I've gone for more of an off-white/ cream.
Also, under the black pads on the mitts, i've cut a slit so I can take my hands out and actully use them. It's discreate. One half of the pad will be attached with black velcro or snappers (undecided, depends what I can find more of)
I've done this incase my phone rings or I need to eat/ drink something. I had alot of trouble with this when I cosplayed Cheshire to Midlands in 2010. Lesson learnt B)
I was going to finish sewing the left boot before I went to sleep but I've had around 3 hours sleep for the past 4 nights and really can't stay up any longer.
