26th May 2010: YAH Listing as completed because all that's left to do is to style the wig which I'll do Friday possibly.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

24th May 2010: The giant flower of doom has been CONQUERED! So, I bought some more yellow fabric paint and have done the yellow bits on the petals and base. The base hoop pattern, I used a stencil for that I crafted but it's such a shitty stencil job >_> but ah well, it looks decent I suppose. But yes, the flower is done! Pictures will come tomorrow, and now I can work on the white floaty bits. The wig will be styled at the apartment in London, with everyone to help so I don't make a cock-up of it! fun times.

23rd May 2010: flower = 90% done all petal structures have been made and silked. Am now doing the yellow bits, firstly spraying on diluted fabric paint. If that doesn't show up to well I'll do some more spraying and if that fails then it'll be a case of using up loads of fabric paint (and I have a feeling if that happens I'll be taking a trip to fabricland again ^^;;;)

21st May 2010: Yeah TOP PETAL HAS BEEN OWNED!! and shown who da boss!

Done structures of three petals out of bamboo sticks :) half covered one with silk, and will silk the other two tomorrow, and then see what I can do with the last two petals. AWESOME


Less than a week to complete the flower and it's giving me a headache! I made the top petal out of wire, and the wire is a bitch, and I glued the gems down and it was bringing down the silk a bit so I put some foam at the top to hold the gems straight and then velcro'd the petal to the hoop base's too top heavy and it's wilting ;_; (pun not intended)

SO! Last minute buy of supplies, I've re-thought it through and I'm going to buy some wooden sticks from somewhere! Anywhere!!! Wilkinsons?! B&Q?!! ANYWHERE that does these, so I can get it done and dusted in time to show it to everyone X_X
I've come too far to give up on this now! RAWWWR FEEL MY DETERMINATION!!!!!

8th April 2010: YAYAYYA I finished the dress! It's pretty awesome :)

and I've been doing the silk dying! My mother has been such a great help to me with this, I don't know what I'd have done without her! I did the blue bits this afternoon and they've become a beautiful colour - what I have done is instead of cutting out the shapes and then dying them individually, I've dyed the whole lot of fabric in the bits needed to save on dye and manageable bits :D will do the purple bits tomorrow! and I have an idea on the basic frame of the petals, so that's awesome too! EEEEEEEEE

6th April 2010: Progrersssssss whut So I'm taking the wig with me to Minami so Fifi (CrystalNeko) can help me style it :D got the hairspray and hairdryer ok.

Started the dress today, ahahah. Since I decided the pattern was way too irregular for this, my mum helped me construct a pattern from scratch by pinning the fabric to me, and we've basically done things step by step and keep pinning and repinning to me. So far I've finished the front, with interfacing at the top to keep the rounded shape, and it's hemmed, and the top of the back is hemmed plus one side is seamed together, just got to work out how to do the other side, as that is the side that will have velcro sewn on to generally keep the outfit together, plus I have to get some elastic to hold up the dress. Then I need to think about how to fix the dress onto the nude spandex boob-tube I made to help the dress fit better (and then I can wear a proper bra during the day YAY)

Got a bit annoyed so am leaving it for tomorrow, will probably start the silk dying too. Bought a hula hoop today, only problem is it has bead things inside so will have to saw it open and get rid of them, then tape it back together and paint it white. Then that will give me a base for when I do the flower!!!! ahahahahahah.............

16th March 2010: FABRIIIIIIC Well I bought 10 metres of satin fabric today (only for £13 - WIN!!! And yes, it is decent looking satin, not the 99p type >_>) and so I can start on this finally! I have the pattern that I'm going to mod, and then I have loads left over for the floaty floaty bits (that I still have no idea how to do >_<).

If I'm lucky I might have loads left over from this costume to use on Gardevoir....hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :3

28th January 2010: Wig! Ok so the wig has arrived! It's so purty and I don't want to cut it but I must ;_; le sigh.

have no idea how I will start styling it xD if anyone has any tips then please tell me, it's heat resistant so I can use my straighteners with it...

21st November 2009: rargh Doing concept sketches for the dress and flower. It's going to be costly -_-; hoping for lots of xmas money to fund this lmao xD

31st October 2009: Dadahhh Thus the end of October Expo is upon us, and we can start planning for May...

I hope I don't spend too much money on this, ohohoh, but it's the sort of thing that reeks of spendage xD

PixiePopNixie - 23rd May 2010
It looks awesome!! really really good!! And I'm gonna see it soon 83 Can't waaaait

Unfortunately, the other part of my brain (that weird side lol) thought that it'll be bad if there's a sudden gust of wind; that top petal looks a little like it has a similar construction purpose as a kite... ;p Then again, it could be a cool effect lol

Freyarule avatar

Freyarule - 23rd May 2010
That's how I plan to float in mid air!! 8DDDDD

Haha, naah it's all good :) The structures are quite heavy so not light enough to blow me away X3

LittlePidgey4 avatar

LittlePidgey4 - 23rd May 2010
Oh, I get it now. I thought the petals were the white floaty bits and the coloured bits were just the image background. ^ ^

Freyarule avatar

Freyarule - 23rd May 2010
nooo the white floaty bits are quite simples :D now you see the pain I went through T__T lol

Wow! You're so photogenic in all those photos! That costume just looks amazing on you. I didn't have the pleasure of seeing this costume on stage first hand, but even seeing it on video was stunning =D

Odd-One-Out avatar

Odd-One-Out - 1st June 2010
That's ridiculous, they confiscated the petals for being too large?! My wings were pretty large too, Expo really should have reconsidered their actions if you weren't actually causing damage to stalls and such because your head is fine, you could see around you.

k4tt avatar

k4tt - 1st June 2010
I only got to see you wearing the whole thing during the masquerade and I totally held my breath when you were by the steps, and ducking past the lights!! Such a Beautiful Cosplay!! Great Work!!

sjbonnar avatar

sjbonnar - 1st June 2010
It was fantastic to see this finished! Well done!

Freyarule avatar

Freyarule - 1st June 2010
@Silantre: aww sorry you didn't see it in person :( I really wished I could have worn the whole thing more during the day :)

@Odd-One-Out: Oh, no, they didn't confiscate them, I was just really worried they would because of the whole 1.5m rule with props and I wasn't sure if it would count for the petals :( so I kept them off in the hall just in case, sorry if I wasn't clear!

@k4tt: Thankyou very much! Believe me I was so scared I'd hit the lights, luckily I managed to avoid such a catastrophe!

@sjbonnar: Thankyou! It was really nice to see you at the cosplay fever stall :)

ElegantAura avatar

ElegantAura - 1st June 2010
You did a fantastic job Mel, So pretty ^^ You did well to put up with those giant petals too. Good job ^_^

Ranma1-2 avatar

Ranma1-2 - 1st June 2010
Beautifull cosplay Freya. For some reason I didn't clock the huge petals when I was in the queue, they look Fabulous in the pics. Epicness. ^_^

Freyarule avatar

Freyarule - 1st June 2010
@ElegantAura: Thankyou hun! I was going to have pics with you wasn't I >_< with all the madness I forgot! :(

@Ranma1-2: Thanks very much! The petals were added on as I moved further up the queue so I wouldn't annoy anyone else XD by the time I'd gotten 3 people from the front the pathway was pretty much blocked so people going the other way had to do a limbo lmao!
