Cosplay for '07... maybe even '08 [04 Oct 2005|05:49pm]

Yeah I know. We're not even in 06 and already I'm making plans for 07/'08? Crazy talk!

But yeah. The way it's shaping up, my '06 cosplaying season is looking like this:

Katsucon Naomi Armitage (Last Battle outfit)
Anime Boston Fanart Harle
Otakon Granado Espada Female Wizard
Dragon*Con Whichever out of the three is my favorite...

And for '07 I came across Seth Nightlord, aka August Vradica of Trinity Blood. And I've decided that's going to be my big costume for Otakon. I'll need help from Rob, since her front piece (it's the green costume... you can easily find it on cosplaylab.com) seems to be made out of gold. And rather than use like, gold pvc, I think I'm going to have Rob vacuum mold my torso and make it out of plastic. And make the gold parts of the headpiece out of plastic. And maybe her gold wings as well...

Queen of Hearts [18 Sep 2005|04:53pm]

[ mood | creative ]

List of Money Spent so Far:

$1.06 (Pattern)
$16.49 (1 yard of red velvet)
$3.98 (2 yards of red lining)

Not bad. The black satin I've used so far is free, since I've used remnants, but I'm sure I'll have to get more when I do the heart cut-outs on the back of the skirt... those hearts are gonna get pretty big...

I've finished all the velvet work for the corset. All I'm finishing up now is the rows of hearts on the alternating panels. I've got both of the back panels done, a full side panel, and then 2/3 hearts done on the other side panel. After that I've got to do the two front panels and I'm done with the extra work on the corset.

Only thing is, I've got to adjust the corset top. It doesn't come nearly as low as I'd want it to be. And then once I've done that, I've got to measure so I can order the boning...

And I found faux dalmation fur at Lorraine Mills... I'm not sure, but it might be $17-20 a yard... not too shabby...

Thinking about the QoH design... I'm thinking instead of a black corset, black short skirt and a red overskirt, that I'd make a red velvet corset (either that nice red red, or the deep blood red, and the overskirt would be the same velvet... Yay for ghettotastic paint skills!
