Thanks to those who gave advice regarding Lilith Tarot card version. A colour version was released with the new artbook from Thores Shibamoto so I have finally seen the original colour. I have decided to go with matching that colour as closely as possible so this means that I'll have to delay the costume. I have not as many fabric matches in stock so it will have to wait until I can get them.

In the meantime I'm picking up where I left off with my white jacket Abel. Hopefully will have it finally finished soon.

The new artbook is lovely, and there were a few surprises, the color for Lilith's tarot card was certainly one of those.
As for me, I hope to get back to working on Empire Abel by the end of February.

And in the interest of sharing some pictures for any that want to see, we had an informal but fun TB gathering at the ALA convention:

As always, I'm enjoying seeing new TB cosplays get done! Good sewing/crafting to us all!

oh drat! found the perfect fabric for Esther's coronation gown, but it is £24.00/meter......I don't even want to get out my calculator and figure out how much it would cost for the 8-10 yards I would need in US $......*sigh*

Biscuit, if it makes you feel better I spent about that much(the US equivalent) on the stuff I found for the same thing. I sucked it up, used about three gift cards and a lot of saved money cause I knew it would be perfect...now if I only could get the motivation to WORK on it.

Biscuit and Fey, I think if its a project that you really want to do and can save up the money for then go for it. Personally the most I've ever spent on a fabric for a costume is £15GBP per meter. I did fall in love with some fabric a while back for a Lord Of the Rings costume but couldn't justify spending £34GBP per meter for it. It was the fabric actually used for the film costume which in itself would have been awesome to use but I would have been terrified of doing anything in the costume.

All my Trinity Blood costumes have been a lot cheaper but that might change with Lilith XD.

I bought a new wig for Scheherazade, i have one but i was going a little insane on the definite shade difference. (it's on my profile is curious)

Now i'm really debating as to whether i should give in and buy her thigh high white boots or not. Cause i have some other cosplay that needs worked on. Lord behold, i buy those boots and i'll be in full costume material mode and stuck with a huge list of need to get done projects.

Oh scheherazade why must you make my heart sway like thisXDD

Question, i was debating which contacts for Scheherazade would be best, but unsure of what color to use. Light purple or grey? I believe they are purple in the manga, but at times it's hard for me to tell.

Grey>>http://www.pinkyparadise.com/Vassen_...p/g25-grey.htm

Purple>>http://www.pinkyparadise.com/Vassen_...g26-violet.htm

I like the purple just because I think it would make your eyes pop even more since the gray might seem a bit dull compared to the other colors of the costume and all.

No problem! I really can't wait to see your costume done. Scheherazade is a character you don't see as much, so you already are going to stand out in the crowd of Abels and Esthers, but just looking at the picture of the wig you have for her, you are really going to be beautiful as Scheherazade. Your skin color is perfect for her, and the hair color just compliments that stunningly. I know the purple lenses will look great too. Okay, I'm done now^^

Awwww Thank you so much! I love her character very muchXD Yeah, i really hope that when i do attend a bigger con, that i'll be able to see more of the Trinity Blood characters i love.XD Barely anyone here knows the series, but i still plan to cosplay her anyway, since i've waited so longXDD (>w<) I actually just bought a deeper shaded blue wig for her, so i might use that one for someone else. I;ll have picture of that one when it arrives. Thank you so much for your kindness and support, it really means a lot to me. (;w; )b

Thanks, lol, it was quite alright, very very encouraging for me and helpful.XD

Here is my Isaak cosplay as I wore it to the convention (though my belts, bangs and eyeliner got kind of messed up)

I'm pretty dang proud of it though considering all the trim was done by hand
