Quick! Or not...

I was wondering how fast you all can make decent EGL costumes. I would have posted on the general board, but I'm talking EGL XD its so much harder then just a regular costume.

The reason I ask is because I have less then three weeks before AnimeLA and I want to EGL cosplay for their "Gothic Mad Tea Party". I was hoping for maybe some suggestions, easy EGL dress/ accessory/ hat patterns, or just a pat on the back for encouragement XD

Thank you!

The simplest is an unembellished princess seam jumperskirt, I can make one of those in about 4 hours.

If you don't have access to a Gosu Rori magazine or similar you can buy a regular princess seam pattern and make the skirt a bit fuller. Add a petticoat and headpiece and you are set.

Or if you wanted to go the skirt route! If you don't mind buying stuff, go find a fairly victorian-looking blouse (they're everywhere these days), a pair of knee socks or stockings and some mary janes. And here, here, and here are some good tutorials for basic loli skirts.

a simple, elastic-waisted skirt takes little time at all. it still looks nice enough, though it is not the best way to make a skirt if you have time to make something else, but still works perfectly fine. all you do is use a plain rectangle of fabric, embellish it (just rows of lace work best, but bustles and such can be added later), and then add elastic to it. then you can find a ruffly victorian-looking blouse somewhere, i am sure, as peasant style is still huge and it seems to be drifting closer to victorian.

good luck. ;D
