Cosplayer: PixiePopNixie

Variant: Palace of Dragon

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

25th January 2013: Fabric! So here's the fabric I'm using for it all, minus the collar material.

-Purple and greeny/blue colour is polycotton, for the top/hat and shorts respectfully.
-Holosequin dressnet, to go over the shorts
-Pinky Purply material, I dunno what it's called and what side we're using, but it's got a lovely sheen without being stupidly shiny. It's for the trim.
-Dark reddy suiting material, for the lining, boots and accessories
-Gold ribbon, for some trims and the circlets on the boots
-White lining material, for the top and ruffles
-Holographic foil, NOT SHOWN, for the collar.

16th January 2013: Regarding shopping list Certain items on my list are doubled up - this is because I'm buying material for two people in places (the lace and beads).

Likewise, purple, "shorts" and netting material are not on there. This is because I had these from a previous costume so the price is already "written off" so to say. Once I find out how much they were per metre, I'll add them to my list. Likewise, I'll remove from my list of the second costume, once I've worked out how much it was.

This list also shows shipping cost. Naturally, with the ones split across two this will change. I will half the cost of shipping when I can be bothered.

16th January 2013: Pattern Drafting So, drafted the bodice of the top and the sleeve.

I hate pattern drafting. The paper does not co-operate.

Also, somehow the pattern ended up being big enough to fit myself AND Angel Tear and Catnip_Dreams in there with me. Even though I had it fitting the form and then testing it on myself :/

In the photo on the main page, the top is just tacked together, and is just the bodice atm. There are two pins in the boob area, as it was a bit big. ANNOYINGLY, Azusa's outfit is actually quite loose around her! Unfortunately, my bust does not measure up to her's, so I'm gonna make it tighter.

Also, cause, when I lean down in some of the parts of the song I'll give the audience an eyeful.

14th January 2013: Bootsies So, I am changing the boots in the image into the character's shoes.

I'm starting by cutting off all belts and decorative zips, then I'll cut the fabric to shape and glue it to the boot, finally hiding the zip and adding the little decor she has on her shoes.

I'm a little sad about doing these, as these are rather nice shoes, but I'll never wear them, mainly because I HATE zips on the outside of shoes. It just looks god awful and whoever decided that it was a good idea should feel bad about themselves.
