8th September 2011: Hmm, this gonna take longer than intended I've actually decided to write a journal entry for a costume for once.
Well, I found out that while my mini sewing machine doesn't mind three layers of material, it won't do four so I managed to finish hand-sewing the top together last night, now I need to do the eyelets so I can do it up and make any adjustments, and then add the bias binding to the top and bottom. After some 'leather' cord to tie it up, I should be finished with the top.
I used a 'corset' top as a basis to make the pattern of the top.

I'm looking forward to doing her, but I need to figure out what material to use. However, first I have kita and minami to deal with.
Sorceress-Eiva - 13th November 2010
That would be awesome, photos with someone as talented with you would be an honour! Can't wait to see how this turns out~
j_mercuryuk - 14th November 2010
You downplay yourself, you have some costumes that far outstretch others I've seen of them :D...blah, not sure if that actually made sense...
Sorceress-Eiva - 14th November 2010
Ahaha, no, it made sense XD I don't agree, but thank you very much anyway <3 Can't wait to see you either!

j_mercuryuk - 27th December 2010
Well, if you're at may expo then you might just catch me :D
LekLek - 28th December 2010
ohhh I won't be going to an England expo for quite a while
I need to save up a bit more xD
j_mercuryuk - 28th December 2010
Ah, sorry, I tend to assume that memebers on here are British. My mistake.
LekLek - 31st December 2010
it's okay, it's an expected generalization.
I really only made the account cause I was going over to england
and well, I've sorta decided to keep it and leave it as my progress of costumes site and coscom for the completed outfit photos

I seriously admire your dedication to hand embroidering all those pattterns O.o this looks so beautiful ^^
j_mercuryuk - 12th December 2011
Thanks everyone, it's good to hear that the effort I'm putting in is paying off :D
Pandora: :D Well, I've had to hand sew the entire outfit (so far that's the jacket, top and trousers and half the belt), so the embroidery was almost a welcome break.
Hannah-Kiwii - 9th January 2012
It's looking so good!
The embroidery is beautiful
ElegantAura - 20th February 2012
Aw wow, your progress is looking beautiful! When are you planning to wear this? I'd love to see it complete, I'm making Amano Terra myself ^_^
j_mercuryuk - 21st February 2012
Thank you :D I'll be wearing it in England on the Friday at Amecon (and my CW will be doing Amano Garnet with me :)), but I'll most likely wear it before then for a Sendai Comiket.
Cool, I've seen your other costumes and they are amazing, so I look forward to seeing what you do with Terra. Shame you're doing her for Kita though, it's be nice to find you and so I can have some photos with a Terra :)
