As usual, I’m behind schedule – but here are some photos of the pink gown as I tried it on last week with (most) of the pieces of the whole costume.
The puffs are poofed, ribbon trim is on, and the skirt is looking finished!
Just to prove that I have actually accomplished something since last blogging about this project! In fact, I’ve gotten more done than I thought, because the skirt is just about finished.
Well, I’m going to be quite busy with work stuff over the next few weeks, and most likely won’t be doing much sewing. I should pick it up again sometime after February. In the meantime, though, I did get a bit of a start on my cosplays!
I’m so excited to be making this post – here are the first photos of my wearing the Katherine Pierce gown this weekend, finally finished!
Okay, I haven’t mentioned this cosplay since I really wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out – but since ACen is, uh, this week, I better get blogging about it! Me and two of my sisters are going to ACen on Saturday in Trigun cosplay – and I get to be Vash the Stampede! (⊙ꇴ⊙)
I’ve gotten quite behind in my blogging… sorry! I have been busy, and I have been working on costumes, which I’ll be posting some about later this week. (I left it late enough, didn’t I, seeing as the convention is this coming weekend?) For starters, here are some quick photos of my Kiki cosplay, with all its bits.
I know these pics are kinda bad – that’s what I get for thinking it’s a good idea to do costume photos at 6 a.m. after a work night. But, well, here they are. The “preggo effect” of this dress isn’t quite as exaggerated as that second pic makes it look – I tend to slouch badly, a bad habit from before my breast surgery that I can’t quite shake, but when I stand properly straight this dress sits normal. It’s supposed to look like a little girl’s dress, anyway, not a form-fitting woman’s dress. Besides the dress, there’s the red bow headband, and I went for some red flats with bows also – because why not? The wig I bought for this costume was supposed to be dark brown-black, but is actually just… black. I was a little disappointed in that but didn’t have time to try and order another one, so it’ll work.
I also have a red messenger bag to take with, courtesy of my mum who made it for me… and, of course, a Jiji will be riding along!
