Soldier Blue
Terra E

Cosplayer: Pez

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

24th October 2009: Oct 09 Expo (Sat) Uh, so the wig got stuck in the post strike, and I didn't have time to make the headset, but I went ahead and wore it to the Expo anyway. XD; Wasn't too bad, still got recognised. Space opera ftw?

27th August 2009: I officially hate this costume I do.

24th August 2009: Oh, crap I've never worked with metallic threads before - and never will again. The sewing machine hates it. Tried changing tension and various other things, but it just kept throwing hissy fits and the thread unravels and snares and snaps and catches on things etc. The needle snapped twice. The end results looks like I've been sewing blindfolded, or whilst drunk. As soon as I switched back to normal thread, I could hear the sewing machine's sigh of relief when I stepped on the foot pedal ('ah, cotton...' it says). Seriously, never again.

Also, what possessed me to use silvery material for the patterns on the jacket? It's ended up looking tacky. This is what I get for hurrying things and not planning it out properly. But I will get this done before next Monday, that's for sure.

Urgh, metallic-looking fabrics and threads. NEVER AGAIN.

Ah yes... metallic threads are an absolute NIGHTMARE to work with... Even with hand sewing they still manage to get all tangled and messed up :S

But for the sake of Soldier Blue, you must prevail!!!! I shall support you spiritually~!!!! *waves a massive cheerleading banner*

Kan-chan > Thanks! XD It's still in progress, there are lots of bits I need to improve on.

Do it! There aren't many Terra E cosplays around, that needs to be fixed!

Wow! You look great in the photo.

Yes Metalic threads are evil. Discovered this with my Abel outfits.

Amy-Lou > Thank you! The lack of wig was a bit of an annoyance initially but I'm glad I wore it and I forgot about the hair problem quite quickly. XD It was still loads of fun! :D

Sephirayne > Thank you! I'm so glad I got to take a pic with your Abel on Saturday. And thanks for telling me about the silver threads thing, next time I think I'll try to use grey ones too and see what happens!
