Also the shoes and socks owo
Any advice would be great! =D

I got my Madoka shoes from Bodyline and both shipping options would arrive in time for the con (the faster one took 4 days to Oakville, I'm pretty sure the longer one is an estimated 1 1/2 weeks.) They usually only have the smaller sized shoes in stock though. (I'm a 7 1/2 and size 235 on their site, but usually there's nothing above 245 or 8 1/2 in stock)

Or you could go to Payless as kristen89 and alter them. Although Madoka's bows are actually attached to her shoes, mine aren't.

I made my own socks out of stretchy satin, which works fine for me, although they're really...smooth...they don't exactly feel like socks haha

My wig is from cosmonde and although the price is a bit high (it's on par with Arda's prices) the quality is stunning and it's pre-styled. I did pay for faster shipping though, and it came within 4 days.

If you're just starting, good luck! Only a few more weeks to AN...I'm not even done all my cosplays yet ahhh this happens every year lol

I got a single pan of Half Baked in the old formula on sale so I depotted it for am freestyle palettes I bring to cons/trips. I loved the Naked 2 as well being for fair skinned.


If I don't finish Nehelenia on time I'm not panicked yet as I planning on bringer her to AN next year as well. But yes 20 days to get everything done woot!!!!

Kyouko is done, I just need to attach the soul gem to a chain, and take in the side of the duster since I lost weight! lol! Problem is I have been debating making the spear or not? I've never made a prop like that before so I don't even know where to start when it comes to making one. I wonder if I should even bother?

Hoping to have my Madoka bow mostly done by the end of Monday, since I have a few days off. I was originally going to use PVC pipe, but I was concerned about weakness in the joints where the gems are, so I'm going to make it out of oak, likely with some paperclay details. Wish me luck.

Our group's Sayaka, Mami and Kyouko are pretty far along; our Homura and I are probably the farthest behind, partially because our Homura has been really busy between work and helping the rest of us. She's also been casting our gems.

The Kyouko in my group will be working on her spear at my place this weekend, so we should have more progress photos by then. Here's what we've got so far.

Goodness! You're group is going to be so amazing! I don't have those sorts of tools to working with though, so I'm hoping maybe I can come up with something out of cardboard maybe? x.x

Got started on Madoka's bow again, after scrapping the PVC pipe idea.

Our Kyoko also came over to work on her spear.

Thanks! I know our methods won't be easy to mimic if you don't have access to a workshop, but you won't need much more than foamboard (Michael's or other craft stores) for the exterior, maybe some pink foam on the inside for structure (Home Depot), and a pole (Home Depot, look in the plumbing section and ask for a PVC pipe; just make sure you figure out how big you want it to be beforehand, and they can cut it for you ).

Wow Angathol your group's progress is amazing. And that workshop is super impressive!

I've been very slowly making progress...About 30~40% done the top and 60% done the mask construction now. Still need to gesso, sand and paint it after that. Anime North is coming up way too fast!
