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:
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.

now I think I should make an Esther dress for ACEN...hm....

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.

Thank you! I keep running out of trim...I buy it by the bolt, and have gone through 150 yards so far, and I still haven't finished. x.x Almost there, though, just a bit further to go!

@Silent Dreaming, Wow! That's a lot of trim. I think the most I have ever used on a project is 40. Yours is going to be one amazing costume. I can't wait to see it finished.

@Tenkage-chan, sounds interesting. Can't wait to see.
