I would love to know how you did your corset. I know that's something of a very long explination but you did an amazing job.

I should post a close up of them on my account.
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3150072/

I used brow vinyl for my belts. I glue the two side of the fabric together with a silicon based glue and pressed them under some weight (books) as they cured for 2 days. that way once they were glued they remain flexible and I was able to cut strips to the right size to match my hardware I got off Etsy. The buckles and metal loops I got from two different sellers.

The shirt I made from a blouse pattern.
http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m209...hp?page_id=981

The sleeves I drafted myself using this guide but it took 2 failed attempts before getting the shape right. The puff sleeve shape is really trail and error as it's all about gathering. The smake closest to it if the secound option but I made the top part slightly small to try and get her full but triangle shape.

Which version. The Character Art/Manga is different then the Anime model.

But here are the diagrams for both.

Thank you so much for helping me!

I plan on making the anime version gun since I dont see a lot of people having that one.

For the shirt, I decided to use one of my polo shirts and just sew yellow bias tape on it to make that the look I need. I figure that way would be faster since I only have until the end of the month to finish this for anime matsuri. I'm actually thinking about making the bow with snap on it that way it already perfectly done.

For Mami's rifle, my boyfriend and I decided to buy a toy gun on ebay to use as a base. It only costed me $25 with shipping.

Gloves are going to be black and im gonna paint the trim of the fingers gold. But can I just use acrylic paint for that?

I'm trying to find a pattern for the corset but I havent been able to find anything. I want to make an waist cincher corset. All the patterns I have found, it kind of hard to understand it :/ Is there a video or a picture step-by-step one somewhere??

For the skirt, I already finish making it. I made a half circle skirt. I was thinking about adding a petticoat under it. What do you think?

I used a pre-made petticoat I got off ebay to add fullness to my skirt.

The anime verson is better to make from scratch as the shape is very boxy for the most part but you can build over a light weight riffle.


I use instruction online to draft my cincher based on a corset instruction and step by step on how to draft it.
http://katafalk.wordpress.com/2010/0...tern-tutorial/ it works better then buying a pattern. ^_^

More corset tutorials on finishing.

Unless the gloves are vinyl you can really paint a clan band on them. I bought a pair of woven glove in dark brown and sew on by hand bias tape I made from my skirt fabric around the fingers.

I was finally able to get back to working on Goddess Madoka. These skirts just keep getting heavier and heavier. @.@ Did manage to take a really awkward progress shot of a set of the skirts:

Hope to get a lot more work done the next few days.

My wig for Mami is officially half way done! I've finished the spiral for one pigtail, haha. I absolutely love my wig. It's so soft and shiny, but not too much so. I'm a bit too nitpicky on the curl itself, I think it turned out messier than I would've liked, but it still looks alright I think.
The wig is a chibi from Arda and boy is it thick! I thought I would have to order extensions to make the curl, but I was able to use what was harvested from the pigtail and still have plenty left over! I know the yellow ribbon isn't in the design, but I had to hide where I attached the curl to the stub cause it looked nastyyy, so I took a bit of creative license. It matches the ribbon I used on other parts of the costume, so I'm not too upset about it.

Here's some pictures:

What do you guys think about making a bustier instead of a corset for mami's transformation outfit? Thats what im thinking about doing right now. I found a really simple video on it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJTg7Oh6h74

She also post pictures of the pattern she used and how to use it:
http://s646.photobucket.com/albums/uu181/pigmentshop/

Right now for Mami's outfit, I only need to make the hat, arm warmers, paint gold trim on the gloves, and the waist area for her outfit.

To answer you glove question I would still hand sew on the gold trom on the fingers as the paint will crack.

My corsets is technically a Bustier as well as it only closes as the front with eye hooks instead of a zipper for strength. I do recommend adding plastic boning for shape as mine did sag over the course of the day without it.


kristaaah your wig is turning out nicely unfortunately for me the chibi was still to small in circumference to use for my head (but had plenty of room in the cap)

I'm sad that I couldn't finish the gloves or finish the soul gem properly, but there's always another time.
