Today I started making the skirt, I measured the skirt by using two of my own skirts as a template, one for the waist and one for the fullness of the skirt. Lets just say it was a little more difficult than I had planned! I stitched a little pocket along the waist band for the elastic and then threaded the elastic through, I am using quite a thick elastic this time, to make sure it's powerful enough. Annoying I couldn't find a thread similar to my material, so I had to use a brown, so I may switch it up if I find a red thread, as I have another 2-3 months to do this ^-^ my next step would be stitching the bottom of the skirt. Excuse the shabby photo!

Yesterday I went out and bought my materials to begin my cosplay. All together it came to £11 something xD which was great as I got poly cotton and one pure cotton, which can be pretty expensive! I am looking so forward to creating this cosplay, compared to the others, as it's going to be a little more detailed I guess!

I got some shoes, but the problem is, I couldn't find any that match completely )': so I have these random, funky, black shoes that I found :3:3:3:3

ONLY HAVE ONE WEEK LEFT TO FINISH D: my sewing machine still isn't working, so I still have to do everything by hand, which is becoming difficult and taking a while -.-

I've finished the skirt, just adding the panel to come between my skirt and boob line (due to bigish boobs, the dress isn't as big o-0 just got to do some stitching in places, make the straps, the armbands and make some frills and bows and shall be done :D...that's actually a lot...D:

I bought some stockings for the cosplay today, and oh my, they're a bit kinky O-0 they only had little frilly ones, but they'll have to do, it will add a gothic touch to the cosplay:3 I have decided to hand sew everything as my sewing machine is deciding to play up (-.-)

A couple of days ago I tried to make the bows...they're surprisingly harder than I thought XD oh well, will be a good challenge:D

I've had to stay behind for school a lot lately (I'm doing my GCSE's) so I haven't had much time to do this cosplay, but I am going to get a start NOW O-O someone slap me if I don't

So this is going to be my second cosplay. I decided to expand where I shopped for supplies, and went around a variety of stores in my area. I went to a shop called 'The Nylon Shop'. In the nylon shop I managed to get some black cotton fabric, some black elastic and some black ribbon. I got 2 metres of the black fabric. I'm going to be using the black fabric for the pinafore, the arm bands and the bows, so I may need more fabric. I've just gotten a new sewing machine, so time should be sped up, and I have been learning how to use it:3

I also already had the wig, so I didn't need to buy that in advance.

This cosplay is coming out again, probably twice now, once at BCExpo and once at the Oct MCM Expo ^-^ so excited:3 I love this cosplay so much:3 This time I am making the full length dagger, well spear, so yay:3 and i'm going to have Ashitaka too:3

As the title says, it's going to be a slow start to this cosplay, as we are both on i'd say holiday over the two weeks (not together though D:) so it will be a slow start, but i think we still have enough time:3 going to be remaking the San dagger ^-^ and might be wearing these to Cardiff too :D -Amehhful

Okay, so my boyfriend Ben (Benzos_downer) has decided to cosplay as soul with me as Maka ^-^ we are going to wear it at the London MCM Expo October 2013 ^-^ so excited for this :D i love soul eater so much:3 making him watch them all now o-o

http://www.flickr.com/photos/stfphotoagency/8566294802/ omgggg found meeeee:3 nawhh:3 i look terrible xD

I have now watched all 51 episodes of Soul Eater, and i have to say, I LOVED IT:3 now i am all set to start on this cosplay, as i have finished my San cosplay. I'm so excited to dress up as Maka, as she is such a strong female character ^-^ Hope i can possibly see more people dressed in Soul Eater costumes at the expo(:

I finally completely finished my whole first ever cosplay :D and in time for the MCM expo :D (3 days:3) I got the shoes yesterday, they're not perfect and don't completely look like her shoes, but oh well :D can't wait to wear it :D i shall upload pictures probably tomorrow ^-^

I've finally got the dress finished, but i still have to make some adjustments to it. It's too big and has like hardly any shape so i'm just going to bring it in a little at the waist to make it more like Sans ^-^

this evening i made the white part of the dress, it was really easy but hard at the same time to make it, basically i cut my head out of a sheet of material and worked around it. it meant i only had to stitch in two places. The material i used was really hard to cut and the edges came out jagged, but that was perfect as her top is supposed to be messy anyway, as she lives in a forest. I have to wash some accidental felt tip lines off, but it should come out okay :D it's a little tight (then again i made it with my polo shirt and school jumper on) but i can still move about in it, it's just hard to get over my...yeah xD anyway..xD i'm happy:D and only a few dayssssss:3

OKay, so it's one week till the expo and i still have to make the dress and the little white part and get some shoeeeesss o-o so excited:3

Today i recorded and edited a video of me doing the make-up and a run through sort thing ^-^ so heres the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kz0OdJb5DQ feel free to watch ^-^

I finally managed to get a hold of a good wig :D it's quite good actually, just needs a little styling and straightening out, and it will be perfect :D oh and heres a side view of the cloak o-o

I still haven't made any progress yet over the last days, as i've had soooo much course work -.- i have to finish my dress gahh o-0 ONLY.....10 DAYS TILL EXPO:3:3:3:3:3:3:3:3:3:3:3:3<---excited xD

So over these last couple of days (yesterday and this morning xD) i haven't really made any progress which is bad, as the expo is in less than 2 weeks now o; so excited:3

Thankyou everyone that has commented by the way :D Really appreciate it ^-^

I'VE FINALLY FINISHED MY CLOAK :D i'm so happy:3 there is a few imperfections that i want to correct but i love it:3 i attached the ears this morning after managing to get the red felt to stick, i had to pierce holes with a safty pin to stitch the cardboard on my fur ^-^ the ears are a little too far back and a little un even but that doesn't really matter, the only thing that bugs me is the lines that appear when i'm wearing it like in the picture, but that might have just been the way i was standing ^-^ now to attach the necklace to the front of the cloak, finish my dress, get my shoes and i'm done :D i don't need to get a wig as i can make her hair from mine ^-^ (just with a purple tint;3)

okay, so i've made the arm and head bands, the colours are a bit off, but i don't think that'll matter(: i only made the jewl parts out of cardboard and might make them out of something else but i'm not quite sure yet ^-^ Felt still hasn't stuck to ears -.- also thinking of ways to stick my ears to make cloak o-0

I woke up early in the morning (thanks to my mum's alarm) so i'm going to get started on my ears ^-^ hopefully i get to attach my ears and mask to my fur cloak today with my dad's help ^-^ I still have to paint my mask o-0 but i'll be doing that soon /before/ i attach it to my fur xD

7:02pm-
So me and my dad went and bought some felt and elastic today ^-^ and my dad also helped me drill and spray my mask ready for attaching the cloak. once i got home i got straight onto attaching the mask to the cloak, using cotton, i put quite a lot on so i'm hoping it will stay. I love it :D I've also attach the black felt to the ear, but i'm having trouble attaching the red/orange/pink felt to it -.- i've tried so many times, and i've also ran out of superglue, so i'm /hoping/ it'll work with weights added to it's drying progress. once i get the cloak finished i will feel more better, it's the main part of the cosplay i wanted to make:3

Last night i managed to stay up till 10:50 stiching the hem(?) on my cloak, i thought putting a hem on it would make it look more natural, turns out it did ^-^ it took me /agess/ i even had to complete it this morning before school (and the doctors-.-) I've managed to stitch on the tail part i've made before hand aswell, it looks awesome ^-^ my next project is going to be attaching everything to the cloak (mask, ears, necklace) and then finish off the dress^-^ (sorry about the really bad quality picture o-o
