I just got more bias tape that i used on my shirt. So the shade of color will match it for the gloves.

Thanks for the advice on adding boning. I have to figure out how to add boning then. I got the spring steel boning so i was thinking about using that instead.

I'm trying to make genderbend Kyouko happen for Anime Expo this year and was wondering if anyone had any advice for the boots. That's probably the one aspect that changes the least when bending the outfit, but I'm just looking for any sort of opinions since I basically have no idea how to go about doing that part of the outfit :P

Thanks!

Her boots are actually pretty unisex compared to the rest of the girls as the style I've seen on both mail and female character designs for military/RPG fantasy.

The detail on the boot match the detail on the collar. I would keep them as is it' the dress that got to change.

Goddess Madoka gave my poor sewing machine a run for its money tonight. @.@ It was not happy sewing through 6 layers of fabric. I did manage to get the top skirt lined with the black and the middle skirt attached.

So my mami cosplay is now at 80% done. all I need to do is make the corset, hat, and finish up the gun.

What kind of hat do u think mami is wearing? I'm trying to figure out how i should go about making it.

im pushing the corset/waist area as the last thing i sew. >_< it takes too long for me to try and figure out how I want to do it.

Goddess Madoka is really getting close to "done"! Of course I can post pictures soon to that means. XD The main pieces are pretty much done which I needed done for the con this weekend though I'm sad I'll probably be propless unless I can manage to finish one between now and than... Here's to hoping! Promise I'll post pics once I get some!

The corset was the longest time to make for me do, so I counted it as 30% of the work as it take time to make something form fitting. lol

The hat I made the shape of it out of plastic canvas with a beveled side which was more trial and error. After it was done I cover it in fabric sewn to shape of it by tracing the top and rolling the side and a traced. on i sewed the top and side together I popped that hat frame made out of plastic canvas in side the fabric shell and hot glue down the bottom fabric inside as a few point. because I will always wear a wig with it. I glue fabric loops into with safety pin on the back side secured in the loop at the front and two sides (not the back) and the pined the wig on.

It was so fun to make a pill box hat. The feathers I got off Etsy to match more closely to how the ones were illustrated.

Hey guys
So i've decided to cosplay Madoka to AnimeNorth 2012.
I'm wondering if anyone has bought from this seller before, or this wig in specific and if they are any good.
I'm thinking of purchasing this wig.
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Puella-Magi-M...ht_4886wt_1010

Let me know what your thoughts are

Gekkou wigs are pretty nice and the do a good job of there photographing what their wigs are like. Never seen that wig in person or on here yet but one thing to keep in mind is that there is no back part and that these are Asian wig sizes.

Ohhhh my gosh! I finished my Mami wig!

Lookie, lookie!

What do you all think? I tried to be as accurate as possible, but man it was a pain in the butt. Oh, I was also wondering how you other Mami cosplayers went about keeping the hat and soul gem attached. That's the only thing left I have to really do now. Convention is next weekend! So excited!

I use safety pin on the inside of the hat to pin it to my wig and the soul gem I used 2 brooch pins in gold. Also my feathers are not glue onto the hat but I use 2 brooch pins to pin them one. It's made like corsage but with pins on the back.

I outlined how I made the hat above.

Hi! My friends and I are doing a Madoka group for Otakon this summer! I'm going to be Sayaka, and I was wondering if maybe I could get some advise? I have two main concerns:

1. Her leg and arm warmer-gloves-legging things. I'm not really sure what fabric I want to use. I'll need something with at least some stretch, but i don't want it shiny like how some spandex ends up looking. I'm also not really sure how to make them flare at the top. I saw mentions of interfacing or something earlier?

2. Her boots. I was going to go from a base high heel and just make boot covers, but the cuffs have me concerned. I don't want them to be floppy, but I also don't want them to look heavy. I have wonderflex, craft foam, and really thick interfacing available. If anyone needs it, i can post the tutorial I'll be using for the boots if that'll better illustrate what exactly I'll be doing.

And one minor concern: the hem for the cape? I was thinking like a French or a rolled one. Do you think that'll make it too heavy looking?

Thank you for any help!
