AX 2012 – Day =3

Today was by far the best AX day of the 3 days I went~ It’s probably because it was the most pain for me as well as the most… fun! I got to run around in a huge dress and cape! Who wouldn’t love that xD

Sakura’s Top Progress

I haven’t done one of these in awhile~ So thought I would fill you in on some little cosplay progress I’ve been up to. (For Tsubasa’s Sakura artbook gown)
Photobucket

This is what I have currently done for the base. It’s just a normal strapless white top that has full lining on the inside and a zipper enclosure with a hook & Eye in the back~ It took me quite long to do because I had to make it fitting. I actually used a pattern for this (slightly) just so I could get the point at the bottom perfect~ Here… I’ll get into the process a bit more.

Photobucket

All the many peices that was pretty hard to keep track of at once point. It’s because this top part is made up of 14 pieces… I honestly wanted to put in 2 more but.. uh. I was just so tired at that point.

Photobucket

The pieces were able to stay in position with the help of my mannequin~ Love it, but hate it. I used my serger to sew most of the edges together to get a really clean crisp cut. Especially with fabric that frays quite easily. The outer fabric was a thick cotton and the inside I just used really thin cotton (suppose to use regular polyester lining but I didn’t have any on hand). Easiest way for me to make this was by cutting out about 4 pieces of each part of the pattern (minus the from part, that was only 2) and then put together the puzzle.

I wish I took more pictures but.. I didn’t >.< It was just a lot of hours put into it (a full weekend to finish it) so taking pictures was not on my mind.

I also finished with the outer skirt (another layer) it looks really nice~ All that is left is to attach it all and work on the cape!!

White Tsubasa Dress

I hope it doesn’t start to look like a wedding dress….

Photobucket

Introducing my next cosplay! Which is offically Sakura from Tsubasa~ This would be her Artbook Version but… I like it. I decided to start simple with the big ballgown~

I wouldn’t… necessarily call this a request but someone was able to sell me on the idea of making it xD But it really helps that I really loved reading Tsubasa (the same person also made me hooked to that)… either way… I like it =3

Look out for this cosplay ALA 12~? I think I’ll only be going one day and might not even have a pass… but that’s because I’d rather spend $40 on this cosplay than a pass and having to wear an old cosplay or one not as… fluffy? xD

<3 Another post up tomorrow~
