Diao Chan
Dynasty Warriors 7

Cosplayer: JustPeachy

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

Showcased 6th October 2013

3rd October 2013: Finished I never really did get time to update this progress journal before Aya, but obviously everything got done XD Rather than type it all out I think it's better to leave it as: if you have any questions on how anything was made just give me a message and I will be happy to explain :)

13th July 2013: Update 2 I've got a fair bit done since my last entry but still so much to do OTL. I have finished the sleeves (as pictured) and am making good progress on the under dress and waist piece, both of which still have a few more details to add. Everything so far has been made from scratch aside from the base for the dress, which was a little cocktail party dress that I have heavily modified.

I had far too much fun picking out all the fabrics, trims and buttons for this cosplay so seeing them all starting to come together is definitely a good feeling :D

I also managed to successfully integrate a wire frame into the waist piece to keep it more rigid, I hope to do the same with the over-skirt but I have a feeling that won't go as smoothly as I am hoping due to the weight of the fabric.

Time Taken: 19 hours.

9th June 2013: Update I finally started working on Diao Chan today, hoping to have her ready for Aya if everything goes to plan. I have been buying bits and bobs for a while now but I finally went on a proper shopping spree and bought/ordered most of the materials and remaining things required.

Today I gradient dyed the fabric for the Over-skirt and Sleeves. I used Dylon fabric dye (For Use By Hand) in flamingo pink. I think I may have gone a bit too strong with the colour, but I'll have to wait and see when it's dried.

Time Taken: 2 and a 1/2 hours.
