I went on a bit of a sewing streak in the last two weeks of June. I made three dresses (two of them are still incomplete and needs some ribbon/lace). This maid dress is one of them.
Hi. Bye. Crawls back into cave.
I did a closet (?) test for the dress I made and tried to take a photo to see what it looked like on me. Hahaha. Please never let me near cameras again (I think my Olympus Pen is too fancy for me to use... and it's been 2 years since I purchased it).
Picture for Judai Winchester^^
I went to a suburb quite far away to meet up with some friends. The suburb sold really cheap fabric at only $2.5 per metre for plain cotton! I spent $8.75 for materials to make this dress.
This is an Alice-In-Wonderland inspired version of Yumi King's Front-to-Back Bustle dress. Even a n00bie like me could make it-- very easy and 10 out of 10 would recommend it as a beginner sewing project --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBzEWj_ltZc
Got Tange Sakura-sensei's sign on my special edition final volume of CCS (she is the seiyuu of Kinomoto Sakura from CCS)~
Found a lot of my cosplay friends that day, but also missed many due to the size of the con. I still remember when it was at the Roundhouse at UNSW... so much more ghetto and doujin-style merchandise friendly.
Another highlight of the day: I met Namie-kun! She hugged me, and signed a tarot card she guested for Alice Overture last year T^T We both cosplayed Reimu haha (but I was Hagiwara Rin's "Gratitude" inspired blue version).
Look at the shoes I'm wearing. Then look again at Namie's height. And at my height. Either she's really tall or I'm really short :/
I saw Nu'est a few weeks ago. Pictures and post here:p
I was away on holidays, and came back the night before my first convention of this year (there were around 3 already... but I couldn't make it to any of them *sad face*), then stayed up till 1.30am to finish sewing because there were minor problems with one of them, and just decoration/ finishing touches on the other.
I spent the first few hours as Ciel -->
It was so hot (even in winter) and I kept on bumping into things, my hat was falling off, my eyepatch looked dodgey and I lent my ring to my friend also doing Ciel when I changed, and she lost it. I was very hurt:( I got another one now, but it's not as good quality as the one I had before ;(
I then changed into my 85% finished Imitation Black Len cosplay! The wig needs more cutting, and I need to do the shoulder bits on the dress, hide the zipper and line the corset bit with grey. Then, buy a garter belt, black lipstick and some whitening makeup hahaha. And also wear black nail polish. I was pretty unprepared~ I didn't even know what I looked like that day in either of my cosplays... no idea what poses to do etc. so I got my mum to take a picture of me to see what I looked in when we were lining up lolz.
Photo by the ever so talented Mr. Ron. FUUUUUU I had the black bow, but you can only see it from the back:( His twin brother and girlfriend were IB Kaito and Len as well.
Oh, and the weekend before, I went to Mama-tan's second cosplay flashmob at the Sydney Opera House. I went as Rin~ same shoes I wore for IB. Hideyoshiiii <33 (eeeckkk not the most flattering picture of my animu waifu, but that's the only one I have of Hideyoshi and my shoes OTL).
Anyways, busy again. Need... to... diet. Stupid chubby cheeks:/
