Progress

I knew about cosplay long before I attempted any myself, I looked at other cosplayers and always wanted to join in but never had the confidence to do so, until July 2008 when I began making The Summoner Yuna from FFX for a convention in London. What I probably love the most about cosplay is being able to show what I made, painstakingly by hand!

I tend to stick to characters with a larger bust thanks to being very hourglasss shaped, big boobs,tiny waist, big hips. Get yelled at by builders a lot, you know the score. Midna was a big sucess and I've lost some weight since then (I BLAME STRESS) but yeah, I'm happy.

I like a challenge in my cosplays even if some of you have to put up with my ranting on messenger...you still love me, right?

Righto, the hairsticks that my friend Kristen made for me have turned up in the post and they are so freaking beautiful. She did an absolutely stunning job, the earrings and all three necklaces are also complete. The Make up is also perfected but my camera is deciding to turn off each time I take a photo....the little sod. Eventually if I can get the thing to work there will be pictures of the make up and jewellery for progress. I got the swatch for the pleather back and it's perfect! And at only £5.25 a metre and cheap shipping it's a bargain! The fur swatch is also gorgeous and oh so pettable. A little expensive but worth the money.

Working on altering the pattern for the skirt at the moment before working on it, I'll make a prototype version first to check the shape and then we'll get on with it. When I can get photos up I will so keep an eye out!

Till next time,

Ciao!

Right then, Lulu has been started! It's official, we are in progress. My wig is done and my lovely friend Kristen is making the hairsticks for me as a christmas present! That saves me a job at least, made two out of the three necklaces, the pearl one and the red and black one. I can see the larger purple one giving me cause to curse in very creative ways.

I've sent off for a swatch of pleather for Lulu's skirt and sleeves, if it comes back and I like it then I shall go ahead and make the order for the fabric I need. The next job will be belts..lots and lots of belts, that's going to be fun...

That's about all the progress for now! I hope to be adding some more details up soon and keep your eyes peeled for progress photos, including a wig and make up test! For now, ciao!

Ladies and Gents I am nearly finished!

There will be an FF6 photo shoot so you lovely people will have some nice shots to look at when I come back from expo!

Alright, here's my next little update on my progress. There's no pictures up for it just yet but I started painting the bottom layer of Terra's cloak and will probably finish the detail work on it by next week. Then I need to start beading the top layer which is going to be entertaining >_<

Ok, I just need to put the zip into the dress, try it on and adjust any seams that need to be adjusted before adding the boning and the lining, and shortening it to the right length, I made it just a little too long since it's easier to take pieces away than to add them.

Need to get my arse into gear and do the boot painting, tights painting and make the sleeves which need to be painted and beaded as well. Lots of painting for me in this project @_@

Get all the painting DONE before it drives me loopy in short.

More pictures will be up shortly.

Over and out folks!

Ok, I bought the red fabric today to start making the main structure of the dress and sleeves, made my pattern and pinned it around my dress form, so far everything is looking good and i'm test dying the chinese silk that I'll be using for part of the cape.

So far, no major disasters XD
