29th July 2014: Mistress 9 first full photo! Stunning photo of my Mistress 9 taken by Tes Lord at Hyper Japan Sunday July 2014! My hair even attacked her! XD (well it got caught on her top after we hugged!) Mistress 9 is loved yay!

HJ was awesome I will defo go again!

25th July 2014: Mistress 9 complete! So it took me until the early hours to finish sewing Mistress 9's top! There was tonnes of hand sewing around arm holes, collar facing and inside facing. Then I pressed it with an iron so it's nice and flat!

The bead detail was mirrored by hand, pinned and then hand sewn at the joining points :)

Just cut down the fringe on the wig and spiked it slightly for a good effect.

Overall, I'm rather happy with this one, it was a lot of hours of sewing but the hand work looks quite good!

Wearing her finally this Sunday at Hyper Japan as her debut :)

24th July 2014: Too progress - almost there The top is now together - however I had to completely alter the pattern I used and added tonnes of darts to fit it snug! The waist down has been a pain because the peplum type pointy triangles around the hips had to be machined into another flat part of fabric - as trying to sew it as it was meant it buckled due to the lose shape >< so was up most of the night fixing this - luckily I had my mum at hand to help me fix it all! She is as always my tutor!

The zip is now in too - all that is left is hand sewing around the arm holes and back and bust inside, tiding up the facing inside and cut around the triangle peplum bits, turn them inside out - then it should be ready!

Lastly I need to add the pearly type round loop details around the bust and arms. And sort out my wig fringe.. I'm wearing it Sunday at Hyper Japan... I WILL FINISH XD

24th July 2014: Top progress - collar Okay so I will admit that the top has been a nightmare! XD

Long story short I had to make up the collar and guess the slits - add iron on interfacing as well and then add it to the top itself.

17th July 2014: My hand made earrings Finished my hand made earrings for Mistress 9! :D it's fun to learn a new craft! Never made earrings before!

17th July 2014: Crafty earrings and top detail Got lots of crafty things to make Mistress 9's earrings and top detail. Not long til Hyper Japan!

17th July 2014: Top progress Edited a halter neck top pattern and added a long wide waist I edit for the spiky peplum type spikes at the hip. Thanks go out to my mum who's helped me alter the pattern! It's all cut out now.

Next Wednesday will be sewing it all together - adding the collar and zip and making the jaggered spike bits at the hip.

I need to get the beads for the dress detail and earrings.

5th July 2014: Super long wig! Perfect wig goes down to my thighs - made the end into a 9 for this picture xD

28th June 2014: Progress already! Skirt arrived and it is perfect!! Working out the top now and looking for plastic white beads :3

26th June 2014: July 2014 - is the month of the new moon... The new Sailor Moon anime is due to be screened July 2014. Because of this my passion for the anime has been brought back to the surface and with it, my desire to cosplay Mistress 9.

She has always been my favourite enemy in the series (next to galaxia of course!) so I really want to do this now!

The dress is simple, the hair less so - because I intend to wear this at July's Hyper Japan event, I need to get to work! I also plan on having a full photoshoot for her as she deserve's your attention XD

So watch this space ;) I found a dress on ebay (well over £100) so this is what I am budgeting on all the bits to make the outfit from scratch (note I am not commissioning this one! Had a bad experience with Luka this year so staying away from sellers for a while).

Anyhoo the pic here is a reference of what I hope to achieve (hopefully even better)

Thanks Kila! :D I really enjoyed being Mistress 9 – she is a character I have wanted to do for so long now – it felt so amazing to complete the project, the top was such a chore! I will defo wear her again someday! And accidentally attacking Tes (Galadrella2012) with my hair made me laugh! So in character! x
