26th June 2014: All sculpting done Okay I've finished all the sculpting and am pretty chuffed with how it's all turning out! I'm not as happy with my top/cape ensemble but I'm hoping that it'll look better with the rest of the costume.
I'm going to cut out and start sewing the lilac dress tomorrow, hopefully I can get that done before I travel on monday, leaving just the embroidery to do!
22nd June 2014: Rush rush rush I'm trying to get as much of this costume done before Japan Expo so I have less to do in the week in between it and the zelda concert
My main aim is to get all the bits that need sculpting done asap! The chestplate is done, and the hairpiece is currently drying, but I need to start the tiara and the belt thingies (buckle and ovals).
All of these things are made from a combination of cardboard, craft foam and milliput (easiest and quickest materials for me to obtain and work with).
The top is done, made of pink velvet (I have matching ribbon for the skirt) and edged with satin bias binding. The cape is white liquid satin covered in ivory chiffon. It's a biiiiig cape!
As for the tabard, I'm about 1/5-1/4 through all the embroidery *sob*! I'll probably take it with me to JE for travelling/something to do in the evenings if we have a quiet night in.
