No problem and I do agree with you; although I think velvet/velveteen would work for some of Trinity Blood's other outfits such as the black/white/gold Empire outfits.

I'm leaning more towards cotton twill mainly because multiple layers of cloth + corset + summer heat isn't a good combination, lol. Also, thank you for the link for the Minitokyo pictures!

Guys, I have actually made progress. After waiting and searching, and waiting some more, I've finally gotten my hands on the rest of the gold shantung for my Cardinal Sforza costume. I got the red bodice started today. I made the appliques and got them applied to the top. They aren't perfect, but considering I'm still learning a thing or six about appliqueing, I think they are going decently. I'm probably going to work on the beading some tonight. I will have to put a separating zipper in the back of the bodice because a regular one doesn't allow for me to slip it over my head, and that is a problem!

This thread died a bit (which it tends to do) but I have finally gotten some more work on my Cardinal Sforza costume done. The bodice is now finished. The beading took about 40 hours. I hand cut the bias and appliques and the whole thing is French seamed or edged to keep it from fraying. The panels for the overskirt are cut. I just have to do the appliques so that I can then bead them and attach them to the bodice. I've also finished the white underskirt. I decided against appliqueing it, instead I did two rows of the white lace and added red pearls all around it. It also has a lining with a crinoline attached to make it stand out more. I've also cut out most of the cape and will be appliqueing it before too long too. I just might actually get done by A-kon!

The one thing I'm not 100% on with the costume part is if I should find a way to add gold details to my white boots or just leave them solid since there's so much going on with the costume as it is. I'm also getting with my brothers soon about making her staff since they are the ones I go to when I need to build things.

Sorry to keep spamming the thread, but I'm pretty excited about all the work I've gotten done on my Cardinal Sforza costume. I now come bearing a photo of the cape with the gold detail laid out, it just needs to be appliqued and then beaded. It's huge, and I'm sure I will be obtrusive, but I don't plan on trying to take this thing into dealers rooms and all, that would just be rude of me.

Are there any references for this version of Mirka or did the cosplayer just make one of her outifts EXTREMELY elaborate???

I still have to get the photos off a camera to have some really good shots, but I thought I would share at least one I have so far of my completed Cardinal Caterina Sforza.
