Amecon 2012

13th August 2012: *.:COSTUME SUMMARY:.*
~ MEIKO from Vocaloid – Love Coloured Ward Ver. ~
~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~
* Parts I Made:
- The Hat – I used an offcut of the dress to make the cap, and attached it to the wig with bobby pins. The cross detail is made out of stiff felt.

* Parts I Modified:
- The Dress – I bought a Nurses dress as a base, and took it in using darts as well as shortened the length. Then I dyed it the right colour! The details were white lace and red bias binding.

* Parts I Bought and wore as-is:
- The Shoes and Tights

*Wig Styling:
- Very little, I backcombed the underneath of the wig so it held a ‘rounded’ shape and trimmed the bangs slightly.

28th July 2012: Starting to sew! I've made some good progress today and yesterday! I managed to dye the dress yesterday- it's a little lighter than I would have liked because the material was not 100% cotton but it could be worse. I left it outside whilst I was at work and it's dried really nicely, no run marks or anything!

Today I cut the bottom off the dress, to edit the length and make it shorter. I used this offcut and managed to make my nurse's cap, and I also got it all hemmed and added the embellishments. I also started to add bias binding to one of the sleeves. I'll finish the other tomorrow, and I'll also add darts and hem the dress too. It's going well :)

23rd July 2012: Dress! I have ordered my dress :D I ordered a couple of sizes too big, just in case, (and I can just take it in if need be) and now I'm all antsy for it to get here. It hasn't even been dispatched yet but stilllll I'm excited. I hope it's gonna be sent soon because I'm eager to get to work... Everyone hope for me!

12th June 2012: To-Do List! Have: Wig. Shoes. Red/Orange Dye.
Buy: Tights. Dress. Lace. Red Bias Binding. Red Buttons. Red Felt.
Make: Add darts to my dress. Add cuffs to the sleeves and tuck them in to make a "puff" effect. Dye whole dress red/orange. Shorten the dress and hem the edge. Add Bias to the cuffs and lapels, then add lace underneath. Sew on new/replacement buttons (if there are any). Make cap from the dress cut-off and add bias, lace and the small felt cross.
