@Inoli. crikey! Hope you didn't injury yourself too badly. Yay! for more Cain. You do make an epic one.

@KakeraのTsuki. That rosary is looking great. Thanks btw, my back has now healed quite nicely so I am able to carry on with my work/costumes.

@Fashwiing. Hmmmm, I haven't been able to find any images either. I'm looking to do Sister Paula next year at some point so I have some ref but sadly all from the front.

Sephirayne: That's good to hear. Back to the blinging!

Fashwiing: I took a look through my albums and this was the only image I could find of the back. Not sure if this is the same image you were talking about, but maybe it helps? xD;

Also, more rosary progress! Pictured (left to right): Rosary, thingy on top of rosary, cross at her neck, cross earrings. >>Click<<

So proud of my little lion and unicorn. :'>

Now to hunt for silver rubnbuff. FFF I hate not living in the states sometimes. D:

It certainly proves that there's something back there, yes, but I guess I'm just going to have to never put the hood of my tabard up so I can hide whatever I end up putting back there. It might just end up being a copy of the back armor from my regular cloak, though that would be a bit silly.

Hello again, everyone! I haven't been on here in SO LONG, I can't believe how much this thread has grown! Glad to see Trinity Blood getting some love.

I haven't done any TB costuming in quite a while, but I've jumped back into it and am making Esther's black and gold gown from the Artbook. I can't believe how much trim this thing is eating...I've already put about 120 yards of trim on the skirt (for the stripes), and I still have an entire skirt panel to go. @_@ I've finished blinging out the bodice (though...I'm considering adding more bling...one can never have too much bling), and have moved on to the sleeves, so I feel like I'm actually getting close to finishing! I have all sorts of in-progress stuff up on my blog.

I can't wait to look at what everyone else is working on!

Looks nice! I still have yet to finish mine. And it seems like we have the same silver beads! Lol.

As for the rubnbuff, Curry's sells it - I remember seeing it one time.

Thank you so much!
I drafted my bodice, following the instructions on the Renaissance Tailor.
The pattern takes a bit of tweaking to get it to fit you perfectly, but once you have your basic body block drafted and fit, you can use it for TONS of different styles. Definitely worth the futzing!

@SilentDreaming. Hi there, great to see you back here. Wow! The progress on your Black Queen Esther looks amazing. I love the bodice and I adore the trim you are using. The Black Queen dress is my favourite of all of Esther's outfits. If I liked the character more and was much prettier I would make it myself. Maybe in the future I might look into it. I do like your blog as well. Been meaning to do one myself. I have set up the page but haven't had chance to actually post anything.

For now, its back on with White Jacket Abel. I've been working on the jacket at the moment. I've finished the gloves a while back and hope to start on the belts very soon. I'll put up progress when I get a chance (the woe of being a self employed person is that I very rarely have the time to update all the sites I'm a member of XD).

Yeah for progress!!
I think I'll happily leave the bodice and crazy skirt stuff to you Esther and Caterina cosplayers...yikes!!!

As for me....
My new Bleach costume is finished for a January convention.
So that means: back to work on Empire Abel!

Today I got the "frog" sculpted in Sculpey to be used for making a mold and resin casting.
It's not much to see, but:

Hi all. Great to see progress. Everything is looking great.

I've added a new costume to my planned list. That is Asthe is the blue/white gown from the DVD insert. I chose it as I have some great fabric is stock that would be perfect. It would mean that I don't have to buy that much for it. It also gives me a chance to do more appliqué. Something that I haven't done much of but would like to get better at. I'm going to try using my own hair for her with extensions. I have a red hair mascara that could work for her. I will be doing a hair and make-up test soon.

If she goes down well then she will replace Mirka as my Empire character for the possible Empire group next year.

Yeap, it does mean I have a load of TB costumes on the list but hey! I love the story XD. Looking forward to putting Asthe together.

Whoops, just saw this. Thanks! Beads from taobao, lol?

Curry's actually doesn't have it anymore! I went and they told me it was discontinued. I had to go to above ground to get it.



Progress, huzzah! (I really shouldn't be working on Esther right now, eep.)

Bling Bling

Sadly, aside from that one, my small army of arrows are still black. I'll get around to it... soon... xD

I got my Esther fabric, too! 5 yards of whiteness for the habit itself. Tried looking for a flat weave cotton, but I didn't really like the drape of any of the ones I found, so I fell back on twill. "OTL Oh well, at least this way the bias tape will be all matchy.
