Oh my goodness, so I'm on this site I frequently browse for merch, and I decided to see if they had anything new for Madoka Magica. The Nagisa hat they had was sold out today! I'm glad my friend decided to order it for me yesterday as an early birthday present. ;w;

Just ordered swatches for Mami's skirt and corset. I never thought trying to match the color of her skirt would be this hard!!! Hopefully I'll find a winner in one of the swatches.

Finally made my new Madoka shoes, so much better than my last one. I am all set to be Madoka to my group at AX!
Only issue is, my heels are about 4 inches and make me stand around 5'9.
HOW DOOOOOO????

Just ordered the base Soul Gem (I'm making the petal loops myself) and some vintage lace trim for Mami's corset! I think my fabric swatches are supposed to come in tomorrow, so hopefully I can start sewing soon!

So I got my fabric swatches today. I think I struck out on the skirt fabric. There was one that looked PERFECT online, but in real life it looks absolutely NOTHING like the picture. Had I not seen the tag, I never would have guessed that it was the fabric I was looking at buying. Thank heaven for swatches! But on the plus side, I think I found a corset fabric that will work, and possibly a hat fabric (I need to compare it more closely to my references). I've got one more swatch of skirt fabric coming that wasn't included in this order, so here's hoping a find a match in it *crosses fingers*

Are you looking for a plain cotton type fabric or a silk/satin? Hancock Fabrics' website has some pretty similar color swatches and fabrics. Joann's does too but it's kind of a hit-or-miss store for me.

I'd prefer a matte fabric, so I haven't really been looking at satin or silk, but at this point, if it's the right color, I'll take what I can get. I had ordered the swatches from fabric.com (there are literally no fabric stores around me unless you count walmart, so online is kind of my only option). I have a few more samples coming that were not included in this shipment, so hopefully I'll have better luck there. BUT, I decided I love the purple swatch I got for the hat, so I went ahead and ordered 1/2 a yard so I can get started on it! I'm happy about that, so at least this wasn't a complete bust. And I'm off to walmart tomorrow to pick up supplies for the wig!

EDIT: My Soul Gem is ready to ship!!! I'm so excited!!!

I finished Mami's hat today! I'm really happy with it! It's 100% hand sewn, and with wire and buckram. The lighting in my room is making the color show up weird, but what can you do.

Your hat looks so nice. I can't wait to see the finished product, you look like a Mami and your work is beautiful.

I debuted Kyouko at Connecticon last weekend. Still waiting on the shoot I got done, until then the best I have is this that my friend took with a cell phone. :P http://37.media.tumblr.com/d524e7239...vbwqo1_500.png

@irishattherock Thank you! And I absolutely LOVE your Kyouko!!! It's amazing!!!! Congratulations!

I made my Soul Gem today. The actual stone/gold border was purchased from Shoujo Gems (I'm not totally comfortable casting resin. Every tutorial I looked at had this huge disclaimer about how toxic it was, and it scared me off. BTW Shoujo Gems is awesome! I definitely recommend them!), and then I made the big gold petals. It took forever to bend all of that tubing into the right shape >.< I'm not 100% happy with the petals I made, but it was the best I could do. My plan is to (finally) continue work on the wig tomorrow. I'm hoping to at least get it stubbed tomorrow.

I'm not sure about Mami's gun. I made a gun for Annie using the same tutorial but it has fallen apart twice so I'm scared to make hers using that method.

Ahh thank you Fabulosity!! I'm so proud of how it came out.

I bought my soul gem from Shoujo Gems as well, they're pretty but be careful if you go to a summer con. It was mid to high 80's all weekend at CTCon and after two days of wear my soul gem was a bit on the squishy side. (Better than one of my hot glued props, which melted entirely... Ack.) A day or so sitting in my air conditioned room and it was fine, but just a warning to be gentle with your soul gems on hot days.

Oh wow, thanks for the warning! I live in Mississippi, so I really appreciate the warning about the heat! I used hot glue to attach the petals--do you think it'll hold up all right? Or would it be better to take them off and reattach them with E6000 or something?
