Working on my Miqo'te cosplay since I had to drop Palutena :/ I left my stuff at my boyfriend's house and Wed we're gonna have a cosplay date so we can work on his dragoon armor and my Miqo'te top. I'm just waiting for the red skirt to come in so I can modify it.

Took my first stab at drafting Rose Quartz's dress pattern. I'm trying to get a bell shaped silhouette by extending a princess seamed bodice pattern, and I'm just not sure how possible it is To further complicate things, there's supposed to be a large star cutout showing her stomach, so I can't make a petticoat that sits at my waist unless I fill the star with opaque fabric. I've been waiting for months for them to reveal what her whole body/outfit looks like on the show and it's honestly not that thrilling to me but will be annoying to make :| Buuuut, I can't drop this costume for many reasons

As weird as it sounds, I need to clean up my apartment before I can work any more on cosplay stuff. I've got two wigs that will be ordered Friday, though, so when those come in I can start working on them.

Once I get my apartment cleaned up, I'm going desk/table and chair hunting, then I'm gonna start working on a casual fem!Sora Halloween Town design that I've been mulling over in my head.

Last night I fitted my bunny suit! All I need to do now is add the flame details and the puppy is done! :3

Sewing Zoe's skirt and vest, all pieces are together now it's time to sew hems and add their few but distinctive graphic details (you know, the clear lines from the sides)

I've seen a lot of rose quartz cosplayers who make an applique for the star with fabric in their skin tone. In my opinion, this looks a lot nicer because cutouts tend to flop around and lose their shape unless there's some REALLY heavy interfacing behind it. With an applique, you can just glue the gem to the fabric, too, instead of having to deal with sticking it to your skin. Just a thought!

I was planning to use a skintone mesh or something originally, to prevent floppiness, I guess it wouldn't be much different to use an opaque fabric. I wonder what would be best to look like skin?
I did a few petticoat experiments later yesterday, and I think I can get the shape right with stacked pettis and a looser skirt, but when I do that the skirts also poofs out at my lower stomach (where the "cutout" would be) which would look really odd if I'm going for the illusion of skin. I'm going to build my own petticoat for this dress and I guess I can do all the gathering on the sides and back, and try to keep the front flat, but I don't know how weird that will look. I've got like 10 yards of nylon net so I guess it won't hurt to try!

I need interfacing and bias tape before I can do anything else on Dagger, but I'm painfully broke after two cons in a row and paying rent. :/ I might work on his pants and as much of the skirt thing as I can do until I can get to Joann's. But I do have a lot of leftover leather from my SNK uniform, so I can get started on Senketsu's suspenders/boob patch at least.

Should really consider sitting down and taking apart a kimono so I can redo Kenshin.

... Yeah, I should do that.

November is being a meanie to my wallet, so I'm taking the month to clean and re-organize the workspace. I'm also researching/gathering references for my 2015 projects: Sinbad in the Imuchakk outfit and the 3DMG for Armin.
