So, I just realized that I've got about a week and a half to get Agitha together, and I'm kind of freaking out. I'd like my costume to look good and be recognizable, but at the end of the day, I'd rather have all of the major pieces wearable without all the details, than have two pieces that are 100% accurate. Any ideas on how I can... shortcut a few things?

And do you think these shoes will blend? I already have them and all the shoes I find that are close to Agithga's are way too expensive.

That's about the same style I wore with my Agitha and no one cared so go for it and for you cuffs question, the people that made mine:

1. The first pair wear made from the same type of fabric as the skirt, trim for the decoration, and had velco to close them

2. The second pair were a silver under fabric with the designs cut into black over fabric. They also closed with velco.

I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out how to add ribbon to create the zigzag type pattern at the bottom of the dress, without it looking tacky. I'm kinda close to calling it quits and just use fabric paint.

I used Heat & Bond for the crossover parts on the bottom. It was quick, easy, and I was very happy with the results.

Thanks for the help sailortintin! I have a tiny bit of progress. I ordered my elf ears, and I have the bugs for my necklace painted. I have 15 and I think I need probably 24. The three on the top right still need another coat of paint, so that's why they look a little different, and I need to fix some chips on some. And some of them are kind of ugly/misshapen/too small, so they're going in the back. I've got to stop with the disclaimers.....

So close to being done with Anju's embroidery. If my thumb wasn't screaming in agony, I'd have finished the fifth design tonight. DX But if I work extra hard, maybe I'll be done in two days. Auuuugh, getting so close to the due date!

I just finished Skyward Zelda's leather belt. The only pic I have of it is on my Etsy for the gold disc belt.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/1026504...d-sword-zeldas

I'll try to take some pictures of the whole ensemble soon!

I've done a lot of sculpting today. I made 15 new bugs for Agitha's necklace, since it turns out I need a total of thirty instead of twenty-four >.> Those little buggers are time consuming! I also made 20 regular beads for Agitha's pigtail holders. Tomorrow I'll start sculpting the bugs on her headdress, bodies for the butterflies, and the pendant for the necklace. SO MUCH SCULPTING!!!!!

I got bumped up from novice to journeyman and won that category for my Zelda costume at the Seishun-con costume contest!!! There are some things I want to remake, but it can wait for now. I need to take a break from this costume. XD
