Ooo, I wish those could work! It would save so much time* >< Since it's a flamenco dress, it has to be light/airy/flowy and the dots would be in the 1.5-2 inch range (Like this). It's really not too bad once I fall in the motion of things.. Hopefully, I can grab a picture once this piece dries in a bit. Thanks though!

*We should know that if a design is awesome and if it comes from Oda, to prepare for much cringing.

Pretty much bought ALL the necessary fabric/mod-potential clothing a week or so ago, with the exception of a navy blue skirt for Touka Miyashita's school uniform (which'll be under Boogiepop's cape). I want the sailor collar and shirt cuff detail to match the color of the skirt exactly, so right now it's a debate about whether to get a skirt to mod or just get a spankin' new cut of fabric and do it all in one potentially expensive sweep. I also got the nylon rope dyed for my friend's Ruri-Iro Kujaku (except now the color's fading, so I may have to do a Round Two. Not to mention the original idea I had for the budding flowers was blown to crap, thanks to super-thin tulle I didn't know was super-thin).

So...what the to-do lists looks like in the second week of March:


1. Genderbend Ikkaku Madarame

--cut out robe pattern
--sew robe
--fix waraji sandals
--iron out hakama and sash
--buy makeup
--style wig
--mail my Houzukimaru to my friend
--buy athletic wrap for right upper arm


2. San

--mod fur into cape
--string beads together to make cape fastener/attach it to cape
--mod navy blue dress
--cut out and sew white overlay apron
--buy makeup (and since her and Ikkaku both wear red, I can kill two birds with one stone)
--make elastic armbands and circlet
--style wig


3. Boogiepop

--cut out patterns for cape and hat
--sew cape/hat
--stuff hat and find/make extra supporting for it somehow
--hem edge of the cape with brown blanket hemming
--paint yin-yang cape fastener and actually, yanno, put a fastener thing on the back of it
--spray paint button/pogs silver
--make custom clay sun/moon badge
--mod shirt into sailor uniform top
--cut red fabric for uniform ascot and two-piece chest ribbon
--put gold paint detailing on the chest ribbon
--cut wired ribbon to make 'floating' shoulder ribbon
--paint black triangles on 'floating' ribbon
--attach floating ribbon to yin-yang cape fastener
--find navy blue knee socks
--find a way to attach silver buttons/pogs to everywhere
--figure out pleated skirt dilemma


4. Ruri-Iro Kujaku zanpakuto (for friend) <--right now this is top-priority

--RE-DYE rope 'vines' (aagh!)
--cut out foam bases for finger lights/flower buds
--cut flower petals out of felt I just bought today
--layer felt flower petals with Satin Mod Podge
--attach petals into flat flowers and place/glue dyed blue tulle into the inside
--gather flowers into a 'budding' shape
--attach flowers to foam base and insert lights
--attach lights to 'vines'
--attach vines and sword hilt to each other
--mail the whole dang thing to my friend along with my Houzukimaru



......OH GOD I'M SO BEHIND. :(

*runs around screaming*

Luckily I finished the REAL hardest part of my friend's Ruri-Iro Kujaku (stupid flowers!) Now I'm waiting on the glue to dry before I attach the LEDs. In the meantime I think I'm gonna work on some of the details for my Boogiepop cosplay, including that "floating" shoulder ribbon.

Had a four-day weekend, and decided to knock out a few items with both guns blazing while I had the time, namely my friend's zanpakuto. And upon closer inspection, I realized the ropes didn't need to be redyed at all; that was just me and my perfectionist poo-face. >__> Sewing will begin as soon as I figure out how to rearrange all the crap in my room.

*huggles Crimson* We're in this together!

*also returns to cross off Mod Podge step under "Ruri Iro Kujaku"* Once the flowers dry, I'll finally be at the "attach everything and pray" step. And my makeup arrived today...literally two days after I ordered it. o__o *saves website for future shopping* This year I finally sprung for Ben Nye products, including sealant spray, lest Alan Gabriel/Neliel Tu repeat themselves (white powder/foundation everywhere).

All in all, I'm actually surprised at myself. Usually in the middle of April I'm still running around buying stuff, including fabric and wigs. This year, at this point I have EVERYTHING for San, only ONE more thing for Genderbend Ikkaku (athletic tape for my arm), and for Boogiepop I just need to make one more stop at JoAnn's, plus getting some knee socks.

Finally got a chance to work on more cosplay stuff after a couple of long, tiring weeks at work. I got the pattern for my Phi jacket (finally had to order it online after Joann Fabrics and Hancock Fabrics didn't have it in the store) and I just got done cutting that out. I'm about to start cutting out the fabric, lining, and interfacing tonight, woo~ I also found white tights to dye for Peko (why was it so hard to find white tights???), and I made the base of my evoker out of multiple craft foam layers. I'm getting there... once Phi's jacket is done, the rest of the work is just smaller stuff!

*hangs head* So I looked at the ropes for my friend's Ruri-Iro Kujaku one more time, and....*sigh* I gave in. Now I'm currently soaking nylon ropes in hot hot salty dye baths. -_- I'm pretty sure I rushed the last time, but then again, when 5 other people keep coming in and out of the kitchen wanting the sink...

Anyway, hopefully the colors will turn out darker this time.

I modded the Boogiepop list a bit because 1) I forgot all about the belts, 2) my mom and I decided to sew Touka Miyashita's skirt from scratch; that way we can use whatever navy fabric is left over to mod the blouse I found into a sailor uniform top and it'll actually match and not look cheap, and 3) I totally messed up some of the pogs I'd spray painted. :thumbdown: Now I need to scrounge around the house for new lids...

Phi's jacket is almost done! That's the last major thing I have to sew! I'm going to try to Joann Fabrics on one of my days off this week so I can get some ribbons for Peko, jewels for Sonia's bow, material for Yukari's choker, and Phi's belt buckles and necklaces (if they have some necklace chains that would work anyway). I'm also hoping for a nice warm day that I'm off/get home from work early so I can dye Peko's shirt and tights and do the paper mache work outside. I prefer to do stuff like that outside.

Yukari
- Remake choker

Yukari's Evoker
- Cover the craft foam base with paper mache
- Get spackling paste and cover paper mache layer
- Sand rough edges
- Cover with mod podge
- Paint the base
- Paint detailing

Phi
- Cut fabric
- Cut lining
- Cut interfacing
- Attach interfacing
- Sew lining to outer layer
- Sew base pieces together
- Add pockets

- Create sash loops
- Make sash
- Buy black necklace chains
- Buy belt buckle pieces
- Buy brooch piece

Peko
- Dye the tights and shirt to the appropriate shade
- Add the dragon design to the last piece of the shinai bag and sew that piece
- Buy glasses
- Buy ribbon
- Cut and style wig

Sonia
- Add jewels to the hair bow
- Add the emblems on the bow and dress
- Buy a white belt

My Saber Alter gender bend is done! Well, almost. Just need to get new pants and I'm seriously thinking of remaking the sword. As for Hakumen, currently working on the sword and the sheath is next and I have to figure out how to style the wig and I'm done with that!

If I get it all done in the next week or two, I might actually try and finish up the Skyrim Nightingale armor I started many months ago.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!
I say - if you have time, use it but don't take on a project that is important to your cosplay just in case you don't have time to finish.

Ahhh, it's April. So, what I've done since my last post:

--(re)fixed my waraji sandals using a thinner twine for the tie-up straps (and after breaking TWICE, they better stay in one piece this time)
--finished ALL of Boogiepop's badges (ref pics conflicted, so I made half of them silver and half gold as a compromise)
--found some leftover athletic tape in my room, so I don't have to buy anymore for Fem!Ikkaku (yay!)
--dragged out the sewing machine and started messing around with it (I think this year is the year I bite the bullet and learn to machine-sew as opposed to hand-sew)
--suddenly decided I wanted to make a Yachiru plushie for Fem!Ikkaku

And thus, what I have left to do in these last 43 days:

1. Fem!Ikkaku Madarame:

--sew custom top robe
--find way to make fake chest wrap
--mail Houzukimaru
--iron out hakama and sash (won't do this until May, but...)
--buy materials for Yachiru plushie and make it

2. San

--make fur cloak
--mod navy dress (in other words, make the hem a little more raggedy-looking)
--sew white overlay apron thing
--mod the boots I used for Link in progress
--make her earrings (I forgot all about this until last week, even though I've been staring at reference pics for days) in progress
--style wig in progress

3. Boogiepop

--sew outer cape
--sew and stuff hat
--hem edge of finished cape with brown blanket lining
--get fabric for pleated skirt/sailor uniform top detail possibly Thursday
--sew pleated skirt
--mod existing blouse into sailor uniform top
--get materials for ankle/wrist belts possibly Thursday
--make ankle/wrist belts
--find knee socks
--(maybe) find some good brown mules (shoes)

Lists are dangerous huh? Lol. Hopefully it helps you tackle more!




Made the bows for Sailor Luna. Nice and fluffy and I am really proud of them! (Pic in progress pic thread)

My next items to scratch off of the to-do list are:
- Hikaru boot covers, arm pads, shoulder pads and hand pads
- Sailor Luna ears and tail

I am trying to get all the things involving fabric out of the way first since I sew fairly slowly. (took me about 6 hours to make the bows which includes pattern making time)

Once I get all that done, I can craft like the wind!
