here's the promised journal with WIPs, I probably won't post more until Iberanime:)
So here's what I'll be wearing:
I don't know if I mentioned but I wanted to keep cosplay in budget as much as possible so all of the materials we re already owned or scavenged in my house. the only things I had to buy were the trims for Alisa dress and a zipper and buttons for Claire´s vest.
Starting with Claire i already had her biker shorts, gloves, boots and black shirt. I just needed to make the black shorts and her vest. Her vest was the most challenging. I ended up drafting my own pattern and i really don't like how it fits>_> I already redid the pockets and they look much better but It still doesn't look very much like a vest to me. Maybe once I add the buttons it will look better.
This was also one of the cosplays on my cosplay list for this year, already did more than half of them\0/
Alisa was a big headache. I used no pattern for the dress and once I finished I realized about six flaws especially with the flare that was hard to achieve the way I wanted. I ended up making to pleats on the borders and after sewing everything together I realized I had one extra pleat on my right side OTL. The embroidery was really fun though. The circles ended up being a little to big and not really much that even (like everything I do, sight) but I really feel like a cute little russian princess with it. Even my mother said it was really pretty. After putting the trims on I liked it even more. The chemise is going to be one cute lolita chemise that I shall be confiscating from my sister's rori wardrobe. The shoes are not really that alike with her ones but they do match the dress.
I know that Alisa's wip photos look like shit but I promise that this looks so much better in real life. My camera just cant take good photos.
the right now is my biggest nightmare because I just cant seem to make the curl.
Ive curled other wigs before but this one just doesnt seem to keep the styling together at all and the fibers have alredy been showing the sings of worning outT^T.
here's some pictures:
she is died with the sharpie method and curled with the blowdrier. Hopefully i'll finish this two projects today because in in three days i'll be flying to Rome for vacation with my sister, mother and granmother<3<3<3<<3.
Which mean no last minute cosplay for me because i will only come the day after Iberanime.
P.S. Why cant i make wip journals with beautifull step by step guides and gorgeous photosT_T my journals are always so uglyD:
