27th November 2011: Fushicon 2011 So, this was my Friday and Saturday costume of Fushicon, and I have to say it was recieved really really well. It's comfy to wear and pretty warm too, actually, so that's very much a plus!
Not only did I like wearing it, but I'm pleased with all of my photos too!
I'd like to wear it again but I've a lot of improvements to make first. I need more accurate boots, and I need to make the dress a little shorter too, but no matter what, I'm still happy with my first run!

21st November 2011: *.:COSTUME SUMMARY:.*
~ Karina Lyle from Tiger & Bunny ~
~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~
* Parts I Made:
- The Waistcoast -- Made from Faux Suede, with like a faux sheepskin fluffy kina fabric on the collar? It's fully lined and honestly it's still to this day the neatest thing I ever made.
- The Dress & Hat -- Made from Cotton, I just sewed the details on the top but hated how ill-fitting it was when I looked back on photos. Hat was cute though.
- The Necklaces
- The Sleeves -- More cotton! Did they have to be so big? Of course.

* Parts I Modified:
- The Boots -- I added more fleece as a panel so they fit more comfortably.

* Parts I Bought and wore as-is:
- The 'Let's believe heroes' banner and Communicator were gifts from Felix.

*Wig Styling:
- Once again too chicken to cut bangs so I just swept them to the side and pinned under the hat.

22nd September 2011: More Jacket Progress... Last night consisted of much pinning and stitching, so see attached for a wee progress piccy :)

17th September 2011: Jacket Pattern Well, I'm already well on my way. I got on my hands and knees tonight and cut out my jacket pattern on paper. Tomorrow night if I'm not too tired, I'll cut out all the pieces on fabric and add seam allowance, and then get sewing! I'm also pretty pleased I found some white lining in one of my fabric boxes, so I can use that to line the jacket rather than waiting for the chance to go out and buy some on Monday! If I weren't so tired I'd sooo start on it now!

15th September 2011: Shopping! So, I went shopping for fabric today for some other costumes but I wanted to get something at the very least for Karina. So I bought beads and suede! The beads are for her necklace, and the suede is for her waistcoat/jacket she has. I can't wait to get pattern cutting and sewing againnnn!
