23rd October 2009: Finsihed! XD Phew! Completed 9pm Thursday, when i'm leaving for London tomorrow right after lectures finish! Cutting it a little close and certainly to the neglect of my uni work! This is only my second cosplay and I'm really really pleased with it. Unfortunately i can't take credit for the original construction of the two cloaks and the dress as they were made by my wonderful mother due to my absolutely hopeless sewing skills! All the details, the hat, the shoes and the cloak patterns are me however.
I'm going to wear this more than once as it cost me so much and i think for next time i'll try and make the staff to go with it and also remake the hat so the shape is more accurate (i simply did not have time to do a better job of it this time round.) There is also a line missing from the cloak pattern which i didn't realize till it was too late to add it and i'd run out of gold paint!
Anyway, hope everyone at expo likes this! :)
