Weird Yukata

Bishamon has a yukata... I don't ever want to sew something like that again! And it's not even finished xD The weird part of this is probably because I'm doing it in two pieces which I'll be sewing on togheter and cover it up with the belt, the reason why I'm doing it like this is because of the weird folding style at the lower part.

Now the upper part is ready! Shoes are also almost, they could use some more glue and paint + I might add something so that I could actually walk with them! They add 20cm lenght! It's kinda scary being 20cm taller than usual :''D

I tried walking with them, it went well when I was clinging on to a wall but when I just had the stick I was walking sooooo short steps and went well until I fell xD I did somehow manage to jump out of the shoes and land on my feet :'''DD

Also made some small jewellery parts but no pics of that yet and I got the wig yesterday! But also that one will probably get it's own post when it's ready.... Oh! also Benio's wig came a few weeks ago, gave it to our Benio cosplayer but I did take some pics of it~ I always say Benio but she'll be cosplaying the Kisshou version xD BUT if she has time she'll also do Benio <3 So our Zone-00 group will be like this: Friday Benio and Benten, Saturday Bishamon, Kisshou and Benten, Sunday Bishamon, Benio and Benten <3 Zone-00 WEEKEND <3 I won't be there on Friday so what to do :< no place to sleep and cheaper ride on Saturday x3

But overall this cosplay is coming along nicely, but there is still much to be done... AND ONLY 11 DAYS 'TIL DESUCON!!!11!!!!!!1!! No stress xDD

Think Gold!

Finished Bishamon's glasses, it's so annoying that the Yatagarasu have everything golden, hair, wings and eyes! So I had to do the jewellery gold too! And I'm such a silver person xD

Well I spray colored the glasses since there were only silver ones!!! Then I did the chain completely from scratch! I couldn't find anything like it so I had to do it.... At distance it looks good but close up... you can really see the amature work xD Hey it was my first time making something like this! I even had to buy all the tools for help. But all in all it turned out ok.

I've bought all the fabrics and already cut some but I think I'll start sewing next weekend when I have time. Tomorrow I'll be going to my summer home to celebrate mothers day with other relatives, at the same time I will try to make the shoes and maybe the staff. We'll see how much time I will have to do them. Hopefully I'll find the material at least so I can take them with me and continue at home if I don't have the time to do them there...

Killer boots

The ballerina boots for Kisshou/Benio arrived yesterday! I tried them on and I could bearly stand! So looks like for now they'll be only on when photoshooting... But our Benio cosplayer did say that she'll practise with them but we'll see :'D

Soon I'll be able to start on my own cosplay: Bishamon.
As soon as I get the money to buy fabrics and time to do it, for now it's school first and then cosplay. I just have 14 days of school left and then I'm finished! Then starts the job hunting...

I'm thinking of only making one cosplay to Desucon but I really want to cosplay something girly and at the same time sexy! But with my body as it is now it would be shamefull... I've been playing Final Fantasy 8 a lot so my motivation to cosplay Rinoa has risen to the top again!

I'd also want to finish my Ventus/Zora armors... Yeah  should do that...
