Progress

I've been cosplaying for years, and sewing for much longer. I tend to make my own costumes, because I like to challenge myself. R is a former LARPer, and enjoys making props and costumes for that purpose.

I tend to make a lot of maid outfits, whilst R tends to make LARP costumes and props.

There are 8 normal faces - one for each panel. The winking one is extra, we're attaching it even though it's not in the reference material because it's cute, and given the contrasting figure and panels in the webcomic I don't feel bad putting a tiny little change in there. The outline will be smoothed when cut out. Acrylic on white fleece.

These will be cut out of white fabric, markings and colours put on by pens, and attached to the umbrella - probably by my reliable double sided tape. In the future I will attach these more firmly, but I think they will last well at the convention tomorrow. I will have to see!

The fabric has been made neat around the umbrella end now. The umbrella has an automatic button and this still works well. It also closes very well, which I didn't expect. It's attached to the points of the umbrella by pins, because it is lightweight and thin I can see through it and pins are more than enough to keep it together. There are two slits for my arms just in case in the sides. Only the eyes left to add to the fabric, then the kitty faces!

Attaching the fabric, needs hemming. The fabric is longer at the front and shorter at the back. Although most cosplayers I've seen on Google hold the umbrella straight up, resting it on my shoulder at an angle is more accurate.
