Ah that's what I thought it was but I wanted to be sure. I guess the sculpy I have will work just fine. I won't commission anyone, I know how to sculpt and even carve the detailing into it. That's easy. All I need to do now is get a red small gem

Is 5mm small enough? This place sells gems that look like the ones on the ring. 5mm is the smallest they have, and then they go all the way up to 18mm.

Yea some walmarts are smaller then others. We got what's called "the super walmart" in both cities I go to. They have bigger sections. Anyway, I actually looked, and they DON'T have those ones..They only have the blocky like ones. Like, on the link you posted, the other pictures you see on that page, they look like those rather then the dome style. I think I'll buy the ones you listed

Oh yeah, it's hard to find non-faceted gems. That's why I thought I'd drop you that link

Alrighty guys .
I am doing the impossible; I am going to try and throw together a FULL Magical Girl Madoka cosplay in the next 23 days.
Now!
I need as much help as I can get!

So I picked out my fabric today (which was a really cute peach pink) but I want to try and lighten it a tiny bit does anyone have any advice on that? its cotton by the way~
Also for the white gradient effect for the bottom of the petals on the skirt~ anyone have any ideas how I can achieve that?
The shoes and wig! Where can I buy those where they will arrive before the 23rd of May to Canada?
For the petti how should I go about achieving that poofyness that it is?
Also does anyone know a pattern I could use for the bodice of the outfit?
Any and all advice welcome ! =D

I have a tip for puffying the skirt.
When I did mine I had a square dance petti as a base but that was not puffy enough so I made a tube of tulle, put a elastic band at the top and put it between two of the skirt layers, then I put bubble wrap in. The one with bigger bubbles. It looked really good. Because of my base the bubbles wrap tube was not visible since the fabric in the petti was so wide and much. If you know what I mean.

Can't help you with the other things since I didn't dye and don't know the name of the pattern I used. And I don't live in canada so I don't know what ships fast there.

So, my friend pointed out something I didn't catch before..I had no idea until I watched it on my PS3 (The computer I use can't play full screen vids without messing up so it was tiny when I watched) thatwhen in Magical Girl form, they don't have the rings on. Then it clicked that their soul gems where those gems they all have on the costume somewhere (which I already knew that, but I didn't know they didn't wear the rings lol). So I guess for now I don't need one..Not until I do the street clothes..And even then, I have a soul gem, so I don't NEED the ring if I hold that..

I finished my Godoka (pictures in my gallery). Well..I finished it to a wearable point. I still need to make the wings, gloves, and bow and arrow and get better shoes and add some more details add rhinestones and paint the purple part of the skirt into a night sky effect and add some LED lights...

I started Wednesday night and ended up packing my sewing machine and serger and all of my fabric with me. I spent a good bit of Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning working on this cosplay in the hotel room and I'm so glad I got most of it done!

I bought white stockings (which need to be dyed) and hair bows at the convention.

I used a total of 24 yards of white bridal satin, some sort of glittery purple satin and pink casa satin. It's A LOT of fabric and I *barely* had enough! All three skirts are circle/oval skirts, which took up my entire living room floor to draft out and cut. I temporarily glued some red rhinestones on the bolero. I bought the hoop skirt off ebay and modified it, except I'll need to reinforce it so it can handle the weight of all that fabric. The wig was also bought off ebay. It came with long bangs, and I forgot I had to style it and didn't pack my wig form so I had to style it while one of my guy friends wore it XD. I'll probably make the hair bows too so, that I made them.

Looks great!! Can't wait to see the finished product.

Also, update on me..I have my Kyoko wig, but it doesn't stay on very well. I have to add a million and one freaking toupe clips just to hold it up..But if that's what it takes then fine lol

I also already paid for my Magical Girl outfit Kyoko cosplay on ebay. Hope it looks good. The seller has all A+ reviews on here and has 100% positive on ebay, so yea..
Also, my friend is making me a new Soul Gem. I will have it when I do my normal clothes Kyoko

Everyone's costumes in this thread look amazing! I'm working on a Kyoko one, and it's almost done. All I need to do now is to finish the shoes, which is taking longer than I would like. I'll be sure to post pictures of it when it is done though! It will hopefully be debuted in three days at Anime Oasis.
