I've been cosplaying since 2012, having stumbled across the notion (and the fact that cons Were A Thing) via the Homestuck fandom, which is where most of my earliest cosplays were from (that and Persona 4!). For a few years, I was happy to mostly buy stuff with the odd prop-making here and there but in 2016, I decided I wanted to start making more of my own stuff.

Currently, I have a mixture of bought cosplay and self-made - I'm still not the fastest in making my own stuff, and it's nice to have some newer stuff to tide me over in the meantime. I'm hoping that by 2018 the balance will be shifting more but we'll have to see!

ShadowofShinra - Mitsuru Kirijo - 21st December 2017

Skirt complete

So it's taken long enough (partly for a few missed sewing classes, partly for week two of making the skirt being mostly the same as week one) but this week I finally finished the skirt for Mitsuru! It's not 100% accurate because I didn't notice the front pleats until it was too late to put them in but I'm happy enough with how it's turned out.

I've also been working on the patterning for the shirt, with the help of my sewing teacher - I haven't cut out the fabric yet but I'm all set to do that in the new year. Fingers crossed I can get her done in time for Minami!
