18th May 2010: Dress Embroidery (Part 1) Basically i started with getting my auntie to sketch out the leaf pattern onto the bodice while i wore it ( this way it would be more accurate), Once that was done i bought 1000 meters of green thread to ensure i didn't run out and then end up uying the wrong colour again lol. Now it was ready for the embroidery to begin.

18th May 2010: Armwarmer Armour Progress Again the ff9 amv isn't very clear on details of this costume ¬¬ damn it XD, But agter watching it i noticed she has somewhat of a triangluar bow pattern going on, so thats what im currently doing now, Again these were made out of craft foam, glued together then spray painted, They need the added bits of green detail, the metal chain hanging off the that goes under my elbow and round to the otherside of the armour, and attached to the armwarmers and its done ^^.

17th May 2010: Hair Clip For some reason in the ending amv her hair clip has 2 different looks, a the start of the amv it has 2 layers and has "buttons on it" However the rest of the amv and in the official art it's a normal clip with a stick through it, So Im going to go with the official hair clip she wears.
This has been the simplest bit of the costume, all it is, is craft foam, glued together at the ends, It was then spray painted gold and the hair was threaded through easily. Then i spray painted a chop stick XD, all i have to do now, is make the holes in the clip and put the stick through, The stick gives it the finished detail but will also be going through the hair, locking the clip in place =D.

14th May 2010: Pendant complete Once i found a long chain i attached that to the pendant so i could wear it, then i painted the clay with silver acrylic paint, and that finished then pendant off =]

6th January 2010: Pendant Progress Most people miss out garnets pendant, but not me lol XD, and omg was this a nightmare, the crown is made put of clay and is still not finished, i have wrapped the string that is on the jewel around a metal curtail hanger, which was then pushed into the clay and then glue was put over the top. It has still a phew things left to be done.

This is a really beautiful dress, i'm sure you'll do it perfectly, good luck with the head peice it looks complex lol ^_~

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 30th December 2009
Hehe thank you =], yeah it looks like it's going to be a bit of a nightmare, but i bet making it comfy on my ead will be harder XD.

I wouldn't use casa satin for the dress to be honest if you don't want shiny. Go with Duchess satin. Its used on wedding dresses. Its a bit heavier, but its not shiny. Just a suggestion~

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 6th January 2010
Ahh ok thanks I will try that ^^ I only went with what my friend said lol, but her opinion on shiny will obviously be different to others =D. I shall see if i can find some duchess sation to look at.

Im not sure if youve stuckthey clay on yet? But have you thought of fimo or sculpey?? :)

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 6th January 2010
Yeah but i got told by one of my mates that clay was best o.0 why does it look bad?

FairyPorchQueen avatar

FairyPorchQueen - 6th January 2010
ahh. No of corse not your progress is looking great. I just though wow thats gotta be heavy 0_0 i though fimo might have been a bit lighter?

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 6th January 2010
Yeah that's what i thought lol that fimo would be lighter, i will have to see because the pendant is currently drying, i could end up trying it on tommorow and because of the weight of the clay it falls off the clip that connects it to the chain XD, And in all honesty i think it looks awful haha XD.

letmelive avatar

letmelive - 7th January 2010
Is that Zidane's leg I can see ;D ahaha he being a ninja by creeping in the photo too?

I think it looks perfectly fine, by the time you add the detail to it will look really good xx

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 7th January 2010
Yeah i just thought i won't finish it until i know that the chain can hold the weight of the clap and the pendant lol. and in all honesty the thing ontop of garnets pendant is just really plain. Haha yes that is zidane, he is a cute dissidia figure XD he can't control himself, he loves pictures and he guards my pendant =D.

And thank you , i hope it does look better once i have finished it off, but i do love the jewel i have ^^.

Hey! I'm not sure if you remember me when we talked briefly in the masquerade queue. Your cosplay was soo elegant, and I have to say it again that head piece was amazing! When you went on stage you were soo graceful! I'm glad I went before you in the masquerade because it gave me the oppertunity to watch you first hand rather then having to watch a video later on.
