Lenne’s Shirt partly done

PhotobucketPhotobucket

So a quick look at the base I did for Lenne’s shirt (A LONNNGG time ago).
Basically it was the regular vest pattern I made just.. shorter and a deeper V neck.

Left picture is just the pile of fabric xD Right is the parts cut and a piece sewed on. Looks pretty simple eh? A whole bunch of darts and what not went into this to make the perfect fit~ Then I went to do a long long long line of ruffles.

Seems like a pain huh? It was. It really was. And I don’t have enough fabric for the long tail for the shirt so I have to go buy more >.< But for a side project.. it really is taking long o.o I still haven’t finished Tomoyo.
Anyhow. Just¬† a quick update with that. I won’t be working more on it till next month. Gotta finish up commissions in about 2 weeks! Wish me luck!

Lenne’s Skirt~

Photobucket

I have not been dead. I have been… think of it as hibernating~? Or meditating! Meditating is better because I’m strengthening the mind! So basically all I’ve been doing is a whole lotta thinking and not enough doing xD
But atlas… I finished Lenne’s skirt that is way way way overdue. From start to finish this skirt probably took me about 3 hours. Yea.. I took a few breaks here and there so you can’t really say I spent a full straight 3 hours on this. But hey, Lace is so… so…unnecessarily hard to work with.

Here’s a picture that’s very not fun to talk about xD To the left of my hand is the all pressed and ironed out side of the skirt~ On the right is the non-ironed part. See.. I’ve done these pleats so much that I didn’t even measure how wide I wanted them xD Why? Cause if it’s about 3 cm off… it really isn’t noticable. And I’m pretty good with coordination like this~ ^^

And here is how you can see there is another layer of completely black fabric underneath (cause yes, lace is see-through) it also likes to get stuck to alot of things.. like velcro! Yes. Velcro -.-;;¬† Furture reminder… Dont’ use velcro with lace… at least for a closure.

But basically to make the skirt.. I measured the waist and put that for the black underskirt. Then I jsut started to pleat the lace right on top of that. Flipped it inside out, sewed the top part to make it more stable. Ironed. And attached on velcro so it can close and… wala~

Picture of me actually having it on is on my other blog~ I’ll get better and more decent picture of it up when I start on Lenne’s top.. which… unfortantly won’t be done for awhile (seems I need to fulfill other commitments first…)
So for now, that’s Lenne’s skirt. Somewhat short. Somewhat long. Hopefully not … too much -.-;;

Next Cosplay: Lenne –Start!

My next cosplay mini project is Lenne from final Fantasy X-2
She’s the one on the left~ Though I may end up cosplaying yuna just because it’s the same outfit.. and her hair looks fun to style~ x3

So this is a late cosplay. I say late because Lenne and Yuna have been done so many times already.. why should I do it now? Mmm… well I’ve been looking for a final fantasy cosplay for a long time now. And I narrowed it down to a few.. Lenne being one of them. I just got someone to pick one and here I am!
Plus… this cosplay won’t be too hard to do, as you can see there is minimal fabric involved xD

I am very excited for this cosplay~ I probably.. won’t be wearing it to any conventions but.. it’s a nice side project.
And the good part? I’ve already started!
Here’s some pics of the skirt
(Oh which a fair warning for this cosplay: I’m on a tight budget because this is a cosplay I’m doing RIGHT AFTER AX. Therefore already in the skirt I had to pull a few substitutions therefore it may not be the best >.<)

Alrighty~ So the left is a picture of the underskirt. Yes. There is suppose to be one xD And the right picture is with the overlaying lace. The lace is SUPPOSE to pleat all the way around but… I only got a yard of it and it wasn’t enough.. so it only pleats in the front and the back is juts straight. The Black under skirt is ruffles slightly in the black so its … accounts for my butt xD I’m just testing out a new way of making this skirt. Keep in mind… It’s just a side project~
