Hellooooo everyone! It's been a long, long time since I've posted on here, (._.; but I wanted to share this Beginner cosplay that I made this weekend for MechaCon VII. I got a lot of positive feedback, except the part where noone knew who I was supposed to be. ;_; Skirt Construction I sewed it all. by. hand. It took me about 6-7 hours to cut all 10 panels (5 of each color), the waistband, and sew everything together. x_X; If I had a sewing machine, it would have probably only taken about 2-3 hours, but I digress. It's a good thing I love to hand sew! The waistband is pink, and I made it so it has a drawstring that I pulled a shoestring (I WAS SHORT ON TIME) through it for adjustability. Everything Else Everything else was store bought. >>; - Headband: Claire's - Shirt: American Eagle (brand, purchased at thrift store) - Tie: my fathers' closet. XDDDD - Belt: Also purchased at a thrift store, but Mudd brand. - Gloves: Wal-Mart. Golds Gym brand. - Socks: I don't rememberrrrr! ;_; But I THINK Claire's. They are charcoal colored ballet socks. - Boots: Sears. Bought on Black Friday a few years ago! They are black leather. And now, what you're waiting for! Photographs Sorry for the kind of LQ photos, but it was the end of the day, and I was dying to get out of those boots. XD; I also just realized that I took my gloves off for the photo! It's also difficult to see the belt too, but it's there, promise! Hopefully I will get some better pictures of it one day! Hope you enjoy!
