I just finished styling my Yoko wig! Yays! I am waiting to post pictures until I have the pin finished though, which may be a while... I have to order some more wonderflex. :P I hope everyone's progress is going well.

Yes, yes, that's us!
*smirks*
And it was a bit of fun luck running into Renrin at the panel at ALA. Guess I was drawn to sit by a fellow kirin. (We do have to stick together sometimes, don't we?)
I hope everyone gets what they want done in time--I'll be a "punk horse" this time and say I'm already done and ready to go for Fanime, at least in terms of JK/TK.

@Seifer-sama I need to follow your example and get SOMETHING done. I bought thread to "shadow" my embroidery on En's royal robes, does that count?

@ Kumi: Wow that's awesome! I wish I was done haha!

@ Inoli: I am not that great of an example, that's barely the start of the costume. Hee hee. But yes, I guess buying thread counts! Just like buying fabric counts right??

@ Akahime: Welcome to the thread and I am looking forward to seeing more JK cosplays!!

@ The Thread: Is there a time and date for a gathering for this group? I didn't notice if there was, but I would love to try to be there whenever it is. Friday seems pretty busy for me, but the other days I am pretty free, so I am hoping it's one of those. Even if I am not in costume, I will still stop by!

So far Monday around 1.30-ish has been working out great for us! The organizing thread over on the Fanime forums is going to have the most current info -- http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,13169.0.html. ^___^ Hope you can make it!

oh look at me I finally pulled the hanfu out of the closet.
Working on the embroidery and was rather disappointed in myself for the color choice. when you're up close you can see all my hard work but in photos you can't see it. so.... going to try something. I added highlights and shadows to the stitching and asking for opinions and suggestions.
You can see the hanfu here well hopefully... it has the main garment under a test fabric which has all the new detailing [and future details]
should I continue on? or try different colors? Suggestions, ideas?
look Seifer-sama I actually did something ;D

@ Akahime Hello!!! Promise ever so often we pop back up in here but I've only seen helpful ideas and people in here so please fire away with questions! =)

@ Inoli: Wow! Just wow! That looks so lovely!!! I love the highlights and shadows. I think it has a very neat affect on the entire trim of the robe. I would continue on if you can. I think it looks lovely! And yes, I see you did something! I am so proud of you! *Gives you a cookie*

I'm guessing the highlighted embroidery would be on the left-most set, which i gotta say is significantly more visible than the rest. It looks so lover-ly! I think the shading idea you had should work out perfectly, it really pops out, like that!

I wish mine was coming out so nice. I've actually made a good bit of progress on my surprise JK, though I have to make some adjustments to the lining of the main "top" so it fits better. My custom-made piping makes a great edge for the collar, I'm just wondering if I shouldn't have made the overall collar smaller, but then again, on this outfit it's actually supposed to be large than my neck. My other dilemma is deciding on which fabric to use as the light contrast for the next part of the outfit. I'm tempted to just go and buy something I like, especially since I'll have to make a trip down to Denver for more skirt fabric, anyways. In the meantime, I suppose I'll finally have to get started on styling my wig...

Yeesh.

Oooh, Inoli, I like -- the shading really looks wonderful with it!

(I have nothing to add to this thread ... though I probably should go hang doomed!Risai out back while we're getting this wind-and-intermittent-not!rain to weather her further. >_> )

Thank you guys ^^ hurray cookies!!
I sense a Dr who, Juuni Kokkii and any other series I can get my hands on Marathon while I stitch this all in then XD I'm hopeful to at least get that embroidery done by Fanime. Not so sure still on the "waves" for the deeper gold part. I fear hand embroidery will be the only option.

<3 Tenkage! Let me know when you might head down, love to meet up with you! There's an AWESOME hole in the wall Chinese restaurant by Denver fabrics that's just wonderful! haha my Kirin Katchan found it XDD go figure.

Inoli that shading and highlighting is looking great. Much more visible that way, you should definitely keep going.

Late to the party here. *snorts*
*Gives it a look over Enki-style* Yeah, keep working on it. Maybe it'll keep you out of the places with the green columns wasting your time and ending up sweeping the place.... ;D
*Gives it a look as Sairin* Oh! The new tones are lovely and make it stand out with just enough contrast.


Tenkage: good luck!! Hope you get it done by Fanime like you want!
