Icarus - I love the cloak!! So furry and warm looking. Thanks for the compliment about my brooch but unfortunately it's quite a bit too big so I have to remake it. sad

On the plus side my aunt gave me a whole heap of things I've been searching for for the accessories I need, so I'm very happy at the moment.

Something that's not quite progress for now but maybe in the future:

We went through a lot of my Granny's stuff from way back and I scored a whole heap of fabric and quirky stuff. I managed to get 2 authentic old school Chinese hats (from China) with lots of badges on them, a straw boater hat, a green pith helmet and a old fashioned fob watch!! All I could use for some awesome cosplays - when I find ones that match. I might make a help me thread to see what I could use them for.

Making T.K.'s hat. It would be finished by now IF MY SEWING MACHINE WOULD WORK PROPERLY D< Doing 2cm long stitches is NOT WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO Dx. Urg. Have to hand sew it. And it's hard to push the needle through Dx. (well, it's like, six layers of fleece at one point ...)

I keep forgetting that I need to make the Cheshire Cat cosplay within a few days too ;__; I NEED TO BUY STUFF. I DON'T WANNA SPEND MONEY Dx

Edit: I'm starting to question if I'll ever get T.K.'s hat finished. Sewing machine keeps unthreading (or not sewing even WHILE threaded) and so I resorted to handsewing, which I hate. My handsewing needing broke. BROKE. JICFHjkazdbhkdbdkhjbkvhjsdvnh. //kills self

(However, the hat should look cool if it gets done ;__; )

PHASE ONE - Pattern Making.

Excuse the pictures of me. XD;;; I forgot about my camera until we were done, so I couldn't take any pictures of m4hiain. xD

Spoiler:
 

It's just patterns and newspapers and pattern editing and whatnot. Nothing exciting. This is for our SECRET cosplays. 8DD
Wait around for the next installment, tho they ARE secret so who knows WHAT we'll show you. >D

Stuff I did today:

The Bunny bag charm for my High School uniform Usagi:

I still need to put eyes and the pink on the ears but it's pretty much finished.

What the brooch is meant to look like once finished:


The heart brooch (partly re done) and the oval 'wings' for either side:

This is the base for the brooch.


The base covered with modelling compound.


The 'wings' for the brooch.

^ Aaaaand now my dress has been taken apart and the skirt made into a (waaaaaay shorter than the original length - which is bunched up in the photo) circle skirt~ Which hopefully works better! And looks cuter.

And Shannon has been sewing her top together and has cut out her skirt Very Happy

Made the skirt too big...and the top...Well, its my first time making a cosplay ^^;; I'll just go buy nice stuffs from Trademe~

Better too large than too small. Easier to take it in then trying to insert more fabric, if you can find more.

You guys are so inspiring. *o* I wonder if I can use dye remover to make my excess Kero fabric the right colour for Kari...

Tea dyeing may work if you want it darker?

My progress: Take sewing machine to Blenheim, forget power cord. Mum has too big a list of stuff to do for her. Unpicked vest. Now I have to insert all the internals, and take lots of photos. I need the photos because you will not see any of the good stuff. The outside and lining of the vest will look plain. And the inside will be plumbed. Wonder if it will be they only Cosplay which is plumbed, ever? Wonder if it will leak. I did think of how to stop the tubes though.

In the middle of hand sewing a undershirt for Canterbury Faire.

ALRIGHT BACK INTO THE SWING OF THINGS, YEAH!

I've started properly hemming my Caterina underskirt, huzzah~

Also I've started work on my ~sekrit~ cosplay. I've made the base for the helmet/mask/thing, but hahahaha that's barely a chip into it. @_@ This outfit will be hell.

almost finished my 1865 Elliptical Cage Crinoline for my Glass Mask Maya Kitajima's costume for Beth from Little Women,
It looks better on me because my dress form is too small for the hoop skirt sizing, I'm size 14-16ish and the form is a size 8

@Victorian Coutoure: Thaaaaat looks like it might have taken a few headaches to put together. O_O I'm impressed!

@Thread: Not cosplay, per say, but hey - progress is progress. I spent today binding up the covers & assembling my new visual diary for Dominari Liber (me and Admin's long term comic book project.)

So the biggest progress I've made is buying a sewing machine!! I finally have a really good sewing machine that I can use to sew my cosplays on.

On actual cosplay progress I have made some teddy bear eyes into shiny silver domes for the base of the 'feather pins' on my head band, I've sanded the final coat of modelling compound on my heart brooch, made a hole for the centre gem to sit in and glued the sequins on to the top of said heart brooch. I've also glued some filigree crescent moons onto card and covered them in modelling compound to make them more 3D and finally some fabric samples arrived today from the States - but they forgot the samples that most look like the fabric I'm looking for so I've resent an order for more samples.

On to pics:
