I would say..Its a midnight blue color. A Blue base with a black highlight? The Ivy wig from Cosworx in the Midnight blue would be perfect for a wig for him.

Use any corset pattern from costume section in Simplicity or other catalogs. Even pattern for one of those fancy dresses tops would work.
I used this pattern for my Lion costume.

Actually, you can even buy similar corset at the stores like Fredericks or Victoria Secret, I know I saw one there before and went - CRAP, I want 10 hours of my life back! That stupid corset took forever, lol.

Really? Somehow I always image a light blue [the one that Cosworx has]

Heres some comparison pictures of him together. It looks a lot more on the darker side than a light blue for me for some reason O_O;

So I just recently finished this series and I absolutely loved it and of course now I want to make some costumes from it. Since I have the majority of the fabrics I would need in my stash(aka fabric mountain in the corner of my room) as well as a wig that would work with some styling, I'm planning out a Catherine Glass costume. That and I also want to do a Klan Klein costume as well but it'll be on the backburner for now since I have so many other costumes planned and I promised myself I wasn't going to buy anymore wigs unless I could sell some of the wigs I'm not using(I have 2 listed on the marketplace, plus i'm planning on putting up 2 more).

Since its a bit difficult to find good references for her, I ordered the artbook. I hopefully will have this done for Fanime but we'll see.

Houkiboshi-chan, congrats XD! I love how you did the top !! Best part about it is you could probably get away with wearing things like that in public too!

Anyway, I've been pondering with the idea of doing Ranka's yellow dress, considering my sewing skills are kind of pathetic so it'd be a nice, simple costume to attempt, and it's cuteeeeeeee. I was wondering though, you know the blue triangles at the bottom? Would fabric paint do the job, or should I layer a blue cloth over the dress?

@ monochroma: awww! thanks so much! =D I probably will one time! xDDD It's uber casual! xD

Hmmm, as for the triangles, I say you should layer blue cloth on it, juss so it looks neat and crisp. 'Cause fabric paint is a HASSLE, not to mention it gets kinda messy. xD (I've tried it b4) xDD

hi people, i'm new here =P

i did my Sheryl Lion's top with this pattern http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=10103750 , then i altered it

It was very easy, and it's more tight than the one you posted, doing the "OMG MY BOOBS ARE POPPING OUT (but no, really)!" look. Maybe i'll have some pictures up soon, but it turned very nice (not as good as i wanted because i'm a complete n00b at sewing, this was my first project... how smart i am! /sarcasm) You must try it several times because the measurements that came in the envelope are very weird. Mine are the equivalent of size 6 there, but it turned too big for me when i sewed it, so it ended smaller than the size 4 one...

now, i still have a little issue... do you, people, know where i can get good and nice short violet gloves online? I need a pair here ASAP... how i love my country and it lack of colors...

mmm, i've tried hard to look for good gloves. It's for Sheryl's outfit right What I was planning to do was buy some fancy elbow high opera gloves and cut them. Try browsing around local stores if they have any opera gloves. If not, there's always ebay! =D

oh nice idea, i'll give those opera gloves a try. I also found a pair of purple ones that "·match" my tight highs on eBay that i was about to buy, but since i was going to debute that costume on jan. 16 (yes, last friday) i just searched almost on every place here and i didn't found anyting. Now i will order something online.
You just can't get some goods here, like rainbow colors gloves and tight highs, i got my purple ones on Brazil 2 years ago... and i just bought them because "maybe i would need them in a future"... and the future was Sheryl xD

Houkiboshi-chan: No problem! This place saved me back when I needed blue stockings and gloves that matched.

Also, I have been looking at wigs for klan Klein, and what shade of blue is her hair? In some references it looks more of a lighter blue and in some references it looks darker blue. Man why won't my artbook come sooner?

That looks really awesome! <3 Im sewing my headband today to finish up my Stardate Sheryl.

FWIW: @ Welovecolors.com I bought the Violet Stockings for my Lion and they are perfect. However DO NOT buy the wrist gloves. They are actually quite heavy fabric and also resemble gardening gloves. :/ I was looking for more a matte spandex or satin.

This is what I ended up buying and they are great.
