Okay, so Hibika is going to be one of those cosplay I end up crying into the night about, as when began as something simple, quickly turned into a nightmare.
So far the basic bottom skirts have been cut and sewn. Although they ended up being 10 inches too big around the waist.
The ruffles around both skirts are causing me nightmares, due to the sheer volume. I original cut and hemmed 10 metres of fabric for the bottom skirt, this wasn't enough, so I have to go back and make more.
The top white skirt, I estimate, will take about 25 metres of gold ribbon. Finding somewhere that HAS that amount for a decent price and can ship it quickly is proving to be difficult.
The shoes arrived, but they are too small over the top of my foot, so they need some hardcore stretching.
So far still to do is the
back bow (ran out of material)
and get the wig, when the ebay seller gets back to me
Seriously this cosplay will be the end of all my cosplays.
