Made most of my Len kagamine bodice which is good~ Have to decide wether it will have a corset back, or a zip, I also need to sew on the bias or ribbon [Whatever I decide on] and then sew on some trimming. about to go pin crazy and pin some pieces together :3

Heh, one of my friends has baggy pants with straps, she can't walk in them because if she does, she'll trip flat on her face and not be able to get up Very Happy

Wow, that looks really impressive! You might wanna practise walking in those!
How did you get the stars onto the straps?

Also, can I compliment in a non-creepy way that you have a nice bum? 8D

The stars are stuck on with Heat'n'Bond, the ultra stuff. Cutting each one out wasn't fun, but then ironing them on was XD
And, er, thanks!

@Mischa: Nice work with the craft foam! It never ceases to amaze me what people can make with craft foam.

Made a cardboard template for my "sword". I'm at a dilemmia whether to make it push-tang (as current designed) [The end of the sword is pushed into the handle] or encapsulated tang [The handle is moulded around the end of the sword].

Problem is it's huge (the template is about 6ft 2") and weight will be an issue. Also being a perfectionist I would prefer to keep it accurate and possible, which means making the hilt and handle look like 2 seperate pieces.

@Tails: nice work. I think the gauntlet is particularly well crafted. What did you use to make it? It looks like foam to me.

Progress on my Sakura artbook dress for the Ball:
Spoiler:
 

In addition to the lace, I also tried to dye some tartan and a wig purple for Hit-Girl. The tartan turned out hot pink. The wig turned out light purple (I PUT THE WHOLE BOTTLE OF FW DYE IN TOOO FFFFUUU)
Things I have learnt this week: I am horrible at dying things.

@Karianna> Liking the shoes. They should work out well.

@Firecat70> What kind of fabric are you dying and what are you using to dye it? That could be a lot of your problem. With synthetics I often cheat and you fabric paint slightly diluted in a spray bottle. Maybe try that? Check out the help topics though... you may find out what you need there.

I was using Dylon for both.The tartan stuff was cotton... so it should have worked. I think it was too diluted so I am going to try again. The lace was supposdily a cotton/polyester blend which the packet said was all good (I realised after the material was cotton and the trimmings were polyester. Total derp moment.)
I like that idea! I think I will try it if it doesn't work this time Very Happy Thank you!
