I bought these shoes second-hand to modify for my costume. I am going to add decoden and change the laces

I have darted my dress now so it fits me properly around the underarms and have done a make up/wig test. Just waiting for my watch to come now and then I can try the whole lot on together...exciting :D

I have finished my dress but tried it on and its now too big for me at the top, therefore ive got to do some mods to make it fit better. I did a make up test but didn't like the results of drawing the bottom lashes on. Looking on the internet most perona cosplayers use individual false eyelashes for the bottom so I think im going to do it like that.

I am working on my dress at the moment and this is how far I have got. It still needs the bottom black layer and then the detailing to the front. I also need to install a zip to make it more fitted. but you get the general idea! Once I've finished the dress the costume is pretty much finished just need to buy my boots and a few other bits and put it all together ^^

I have started to cover the umbrella with red fabric. I have got further now than it shows in this pic, i only have a few panels left to cover. I have the eyes, horns and squares ready to attach one this is done. So the umbrella is nearly finished. Then I can start on the dress now ive got my fabric ^^

I have just bought the last few bits I need for this costume so just got to wait for them now. Bought a bubble gun, some knee high white socks and some polystyrene balls to make a waterball necklace and maybe bracelet. :D

I have bought my wig :D I will start this properly once I have finished my polywhirl girl

Finally got my wig which I think looks super cute. Exciting!!

The dress is finished and I have just bought my wig. Just need to sort out my other accessories and make some dive balls for my hair and possibly my shoes and thats it!

I've finally finished it! And I think all the hard work has been worth it. Can't wait for expo to reveal my costume and see what you all think!! :D

So very nearly finished. Tried the full costume on yesterday with all the bits together and it looks awesome :D so excited!! Just got a few final tweaks to do. Expo is so close!!!!

I'm so close to finishing this costume ^^ only got a few little bits to do. Hoping I can nuckle down tomorrow and finish it. Then I can put the whole costume on together and hopefully get some good photos eeeeeeeeeeeeeep!

I have been working on my cosplay over the last couple of days as I have got a week off :p I have finished off lots of little bits and it is all starting to come together :D once I have finished the part I am working on at the moment I will only have two more important bits to make which is good! Not gonna have much free time between next week and expo due to new job so I will be working on cosplay at weekends to finish it off. Looking forward to expo and hoping people will like my costume! It's killing me not to post progress pics lol

My wig arrived today!!!! SO exciting!! It always makes it more exciting when you have the wig lol I bought it from Coscraft this time which are in the UK. Not bought from them before but it came quickly and is good quality so I recommend them!

As well as the part I talked about in my last post which is still on going (i need some more supplies before i can carry on) I have also started, and nearly finished two big parts of my costume with help from my sis. This part involved lots of hemming and she did this for me whilst I was at work ^^ then it was down to me to put it all together. i have pretty much finished one and now need to do the same to the other one. I'm getting really excited about expo now. Its funny when I look at my costume and all the bits i have done so far coz i still dont see how i do them all ha ha

Got a serious glue headache last night but I have started to make use of my glue gun which my sis said I would never use lol have been making another major part of my costume but it cant be finished really until I get some foam board

I spent all weekend pretty much at my sisters doing cosplay. We did so much and I am edging closer to completing the main part of my costume. Once I have some money lol I can buy some more little things to finish off the main part and then i can start on other important parts of my costume. My car is broken at the moment and I need to get that fixed despirately so once the expense of that is out of the way :'( I can buy buy buy supplies lol. Looking forward to the main parts being completed so I can work on the other important bits. Got so much stuff on my ebay watch list ready to buy, just need the money lol.
Tonight or tomorrow I will finish off the bottom of my costume as I dont need anything else for that :D

Finally I have some more fabric thanks to my sis :D so we spent last night cutting out some more bits ready to sew onto my costume. EXCITING

Had a cosplay filled day today with my sis. She got me some much needed bits and bobs I was struggling to find and they cost hardly anything. So happy about that :D So today we have been working on some of the little details of my costume and with them all put together its starting to look really cool.
I'm stuck now and can't carry on until I buy some more little bits or the millions of meters of fabric I need ha ha. I think I will probs finish the little bits first as those bits are easier to get hold of and then I can concentrate on getting fabric...

The fabric lady is out of stock now until 4th Feb grrr. I will either have to wait and continue with other parts of my cosplay or buy some online. The amount i need is soooo expensive everywhere else but I have found a seller on ebay who sells cheap fabric :D

Made a tester for one important piece of this costume tonight so I could see if the design worked and what it looked like. Safe to say it worked and looked good so when I have got the actual materials to make this I can start on the real thing.
I also did a wig test with a similar wig which my sis had got to see what that looked like and I look pretty cool so I can now look for the same style in the right colour.
I have pretty much got all the pieces of the costume which I havent made yet planned out now apart from one piece that I am not sure how I will make it yet...
So the next thing is to order some material and bits and bobs so I can carry on. I have just bought the shoes to go with my costume and they were a bargain :D so thats one less thing to worry about

The main part of my costume is currently on hold as I am waiting for something to come in the post so I have moved on to another part now. I have made a template from cardboard and when I get some more materials I can start building that part :D

I started this cosplay the other day as I realised I have only got a few months realistically in which to complete it with other stuff I have got going on and it is going to be a BIG job lol
I have now completed the base of my costume and now I need to buy more material to carry on building the costume up. A trip to the local fabric lady is in order this weekend me thinks ^^
I have also started making my prop with my sis otakugirl as she is a prop queen lol FUN FUN FUN :D

I completed this costume just before halloween. I wore it for a night out.
I modified the dress by sewing black ribbon between the arm sections, sewing a black rose motif to the front and splattering it in fake blood (paint). I wore the dress with some black fishnet gloves and fishnet tights with black shoes. I had a gold ribbon in my hair and attempted to style it like belles ha ha.
Was a good night anyway and a few people worked out who I was supposed to be lol so success I think!

I was at my sisters last night whilst she was doing her Alice shoot and I did a tester of what my make up and hair may look like :D freaky

We have taken some updated pics in full costume minus our big bows... We are planning to take some better pics at the weekend! :D

The new wigs are so much better than the cheap ones we got before! cant wait to do pictures! :p

I am now working on finishing my sisters Freya costume (otakugirl) so when that is finished we are going to take some completed costume photos!! watch this space :D

I have now completed my bow :D :D. So my costume is now completely finished apart from making a belt to put the bow on and receiving my new wig!! exiting!!

I have now finished my corset and it looks fab! so I am now concentrating on my giant bow for the rear of my costume...I have bought some foam board because not a lot else was working to keep the bow stable and stiff. I have cut the shape out of the foam board so now I just need to re-do my bow fabric to cover it up.
Other than this, I have decided to make a hat which I am going to attach my hair accessory to and then wear my ears underneath. :D

Started making the giant bow for the back, just sorting out filling :P

I have been spending a lot of time on my costume recently and I have managed to complete most of it. I just need to put a hook and eye and a panel on the back of the corset so my bra cannot be seen and also I need to make the big bow which I am going to start tonight hopefully! Had lots of help from my sister which has been fun ^^
Apologies for the pictures...the skirt in particular needs a bit of an iron!! ha ha. chow x

I have now completed the sleeves!! :) I have gone back onto the corset now I have got all of the supplies and I completed the d rings at the back last night...

Came to a standstill with the corset as I am waiting for my D rings and my boning to come...then I can finish it ^^ so I decided to make a start on the sleeves and they are nearly finished now!! just need to put elastic in the top and attach the top trim and they will be finished YAY!!

I have done most of my corset now. Just need to finish putting the hooks and eyes on and the ribbon at the back. Not decided if it needs boning yet. Will post a pic when it is wearable!! lol

having some trouble with my sewing machine at the moment :'( hopefully will fix it soon!!!!!!

My skirt is now finished and my underskirt is nearly finished, just needs a zip and elastic waistband :D

Decided I would make an underskirt tonight to try and puff out the skirt a bit, plus the skirt i am making the pattern from says to make an underskirt lol but i kinda went a bit wrong and somehow the zip opening ended up on the wrong side :s ...must rectify in next sewing session lol!!

Me and my sis have started on my skirt tonight...i have pretty much finished it, thanks to her help. It should be complete by tomorrow night ^^
Its been fun!!
She has decided we are going to make our ears. She made one pair tonight and they are awesome!! just need painting now :p
