Man, your boots are awesome!! :D *nuzzles fur* And I can't wait for San, either! I chose to cosplay her this year out of respect for her creator, who I heard was retiring (and she's my favorite out of the whole Ghibli crew, so... :D)

But speaking of fur, something really weird happened. The past two weeks before Christmas I'd been running around taking cosplay inventory and doing minor supply shopping, and JoAnn's had been taunting me by having their white fur on sale the whole holiday season. Then in January I finally have enough money and decide to take advantage of a special coupon to get a cut of the fur...ONLY TO FIND IT DISAPPEARED FROM THEIR SHELVES. It wasn't a seasonal item, either; they still have their black fur on display. That made me an angry wolf-princess...

I'm having the same problem with fur! Not all the fabrics are exactly the same so its always hard to find identical fabric.. Next time I make a costume, I'm gonna buy more fur than what I need, just in case =p

So happy to be getting more done on Pyrrha! Finally took some progress photos of it:

Posted Image
First make-up test w/ wig and contacts. Still need to style the wig.

Posted Image
Corset is 100% completed. Skirt is mostly done, although I need to attach the side part. Symbol and belt need a bit of paint work for the little details.

Posted Image
Created my first pair of gloves! What a pain X.x

Posted Image
First part of the boot covers is complete. Have to change the shape of the top a little and then create the fold-over part.

Patterns for the head piece and boot armor have been made. After those are done, creating the arm pieces, shield, and sword are next. So much work to be done! D|

Got and styled my Lara Croft wig. I just got the belt in the mail too, so I'll be working on weathering that quite a bit, likely with sandpaper and acrylic paint and whatnot.

Houzukimaru is pretty much done...and fully collapsible and con-safe, thank goodness! Just putting finishing touches on the tassel and waiting for the blade joint glue to dry, then I'll have pics up! (On a somewhat related note, I find it maddening that Home Depot doesn't do custom curved cuts for wood. I barely managed with a utility razor and some sandpaper!)

I also made a mad dash to buy all the supplies for my friend's Ruri-Iro Kujaku because they were predicting more snow. FYI, they look at you funny when you want 30 feet of nylon rope...

Did a partial makeup test for Lara Croft. I used some bronzer to contour and did my eyeliner/eyeshadow differently. I think I look a lot more, well, my age/Lara's age, especially looking at the last picture I posted. XD (Yep, I'm really 20.)
I'm going to do the blood and dirt when I get home this afternoon, so I'll get see if this looks works for Lara or not.

Thanks!

My costume is going to be very warm as well, and I'm cosplaying Chopper from One Piece, His walk point form after the 2year time skip. It's going to be a quadsuit so I don't know how long i'll be in it for

And sure i'd love to take some pictures with you! =)

Here's Houzukimaru! The bladed rod is barely four feet, and I made sure to make the blade rounded at the tip. It's also made of plywood so no one gets hurt. :thumbup:/> Next is my friend's Ruri-Iro Kujaku...

Thank you so much! Best of luck on making your gloves. There's a handy pattern that you can print off online, but it's best to make a mock-up to ensure the fingers aren't too tight (like mine are |D).

*runs in from the advancing snow*

Tonight was solely a fabric run--and literally a run, as I didn't expect the snow to be coming down so hard. Finally got:

--the purple fabric for Boogiepop
--the black fabric for my Genderbend Ikkaku robe
--replacement rope so I can finally progress on my friend's zanpakuto
--brown hemming for Boogiepop's cape
--wired floral ribbon for Boogiepop's "floating" shoulder ribbon
--purple thread
--snaps/fasteners

And let me say, double-check to make sure whether or not you can use your coupons on a cut of fabric. I mean, the purple fabric being on sale was a good thing, but holy crap seven yards was still a pretty penny. .__.

Finished the hardest part of my friend's Ruri-Iro Kujaku today: ombre-dyeing these dang poly-nylon ropes (a.k.a, the vines)!


Posted Image


I also dyed a package of tulle circles, which I'm using to make the glowing flower buds that'll go on the vines, and dyed the elastic I need for San's armbands/headpiece. And after four washes, my fingertips are almost not blue.

Some progress :)/> i have made the hoop smaller at the bottom since the photo was taken but now im having the conundrum of how to attach the circles so that they are even and centered correctly.Posted Image
im planning on handsewing them which i have done once alreadyPosted Image but realized i needed the skirt attached to keep the top from bunching up on itself. Easiest way is to keep the dress on the form and sew it like i did last time but i would like the stitching inside the bodice (underneath the lining layer.) But i think it will be easier to just sew it to both layers because when i pull the lining up it keeps doing all this weird bunching stuff to the layer im working on. Satin is a royal pain in the $#$%

I love coming here when I find myself getting lax in terms of Cosplay work!

I don't have pics (I keep forgetting to take them)
but I have completed the basic leotard for Angewomon and am almost complete with the fuku for Sailor Luna. Also dyed the petticoat. In actuality I don't really think I have a lot done...Hopefully that will change soon. Lol

That's ok, Crimson. After looking at the latest list(s) I posted in the Cosplay To-Do sticky thread, I realized that March was half over. :wacko:

Right now I'm working on Plan B for my friend's Ruri-Iro Kujaku flowers--i.e., cutting out a crapload of blue felt flower petals. Then they have to be Mod Podged, reinforced with pipe cleaners, assembled together into flowers, the flowers put on little foam lilypads, the LED lights attached, and everything put onto these ropes--which have to have REDYED now because the color faded. And then the ropes have to be attached to the sword hilt I finished over a month ago.

This doesn't even count my own cosplays. >__>

You know that feeling of total bliss when you come up with a great solution to a complicated cosplay-related problem, and then that soul-crushing heartbreak when you realize that solution's gonna need a LOT of work?

.....Yeah. -_-/>

I thought the hardest part of Ruri-Iro Kujaku would be the ropes. Well, now they're turning out to be a cakewalk compared to these flibbin flowers. Since the tulle was a bust, I ran out, got blue felt, and cut out enough petals for six flowers. When I did a test run and gathered/attached a group of petals at the tops, they looked all baggy and awful, plus there was no real way my friend could access the LEDs inside. Luckily I also bought blue pipe cleaners on a whim, and I had the brilliant idea of cutting the pipe cleaners to size and attaching them to the backs of the petals so the shape of the flowers can be freely manipulated.

Buut...I didn't want to glue them on because I was afraid of the glue ruining the felt (which has happened before). So I'm hand-sewing the pipe cleaners on.

24 individual petals.

And after 4 hours, I'm hanging it up after Petal #12 and resuming tomorrow. I don't even wanna think about the imminent Mod Podging...

P.S.: I'm glad this thread exists. I rant about fake flowers anywhere else and people look at me funny...
