KYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! I DID IT! I DID IT! I DID IT!
My Princess Peach cosplay gown for Fanime 2007 is coming along beautifully! I was so nervous about it!!! I had a brand new sewing machine, I got it for Christmas, mom and dad are the best! And so I figured I would take a crack at making a new cosplay outfit. Of course this was my first time doing anything so demanding. Granted my Org. XIII coat wasn't easy but I made it from a party costume I had so it was almost all ready done when I started. This dress I had to cut the pattern pieces out, cut the fabric, hem, turn, hem, pin, stitch, gather, stitch, hem, cut, etc.
It's not finished all the way yet. I still need to cut and sew the gold setting for the gem, sew the collar of the dress on, add the zipper, sew on the hip bustles and stitch up the back of the dress and add the gem to the front of it but then it will be dooone!!
I am soooo excited! WOOOOOOOOT!
It's not a perfect costume of course I am by NO means a master seamstress but I have to say it's not bad. And if I'm not screaming and crying over it myself then it's ok. So Friday when I finish it I'm going to try it on along with all its accessories I have and run around posing in my house lol.
So for Peach this is what my costume will consist of: Light pink&Dark pink gown, blue earrings, crown, gloves, pink shoes, pink laced parasol, pink glamor baggie (for holding cell phone/money/etc) and either my beanie baby Yoshi or a blue boo plushie.
Now I am also sewing together a Princess Daisy costume for my friend who is flying out to room with me at Fanime. My costume was a test run to make sure the pattern worked, I would rather mess up mine thine her's! But it came out pretty well so I can start Daisy soon. That one will be a little harder anyway, Daisy has two ruffle hems at the bottom of her gown and I'm going to have to sew each petal of her center flower plus find eyelet lace to trim her sleeves in, but it shouldn't be too tricky since the basic pattern is the same.
So Daisy is going to have: Golden and orange gown, crown, orange laced parasol, pink boo plushie, (hopefully) golden or orange glamor baggie. That's from my end, Tanya will have to get her own shows and Daisy earrings lol.
I'm hopefully going to make each of us a plushie turnip to play with, but I dunno, we may have enough props. XD I'm going crazy with this aren't I?
I'm also cosplaying Axel again, briefly, and I'm going to cosplay as Sai'X this year! Same coat of course but Demmy is working on a blue wig for me yay! And she bought me elf ears! XD I'll have to buy some black gloves and some kind of pink or reddish liquid eyeliner pencil to draw my scar on. I can't change the color of my eyes because I can't afford contacts, and for the same reason I will not have weapons this year, unless Mar manages to finsih her's and allows me the honor of borrowing it. But even without weapons it will still be fun. ^-^
We're plotting all kinds of crazy things to do. Namine is determined to topple a trash can when I am (TrashLord) Shaxel, it's an old private joke lol. I think we'll get in big trouble if she does though XD We're plotting to link arms and skip down the hall singing We're Off to See the Wizard! From the Wizard of Oz, along with just random acts of sillyness.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again, Hayner, Pence, Omlette chan, Riku, Spaxx, Dem, Xigbit, Mar, Ansem, Oni and I'm looking forward to meeting some faces I've not yet seen in person XD Namine, Tanya, Xemnas and hopefully Madison.
And Blake is going to be there too. I'm really looking forward to seeing him! <3 XD
It's going to be so much fun, and I all ready got permission for days off from work so all I gotta do is get my finances in order and buy my tickets! Woohoooo!
