Cosplay WIP

Sad news on the costume front, my Nanoha brown suit refused to lighten so instead of a tan suit with brown lapels I've still got an all brown suit >_< I'm very disappointed as its one of my favourite animes but hopefully I will still get a 2nd chance although not intill the other WIP costumes are finished.

I've also decided to do a pretty random Cosplay for fun - Saint Tail. Even though I doubt anyone knows about it or would ever recognise me, its an old magical girl anime and nothing much special, but the character is cool (a magician cat thief vigilante that steals back stolen goods, just like Robin Hood) and she has a magical pet hedgehog so it has to be done : )

The other costumes - Major Kusanagei and Priss from Bubble gum crisis 2040 are both half done, I'll do individual posts once I've finished them in the coming weeks :) Also if you interested to know Sailor Mars is very nearly complete, I've been making it practically from scratch! the main dress is done and I just have to finish some of the trims and accessories before posting photos online : )

Tim Burton

On Saturday 20th The Adgincourt Rock Venue in Camberley Surrey (our hometown haunt) is holding a Tim Burton Theme night. I love theme nights they give me excuse to dress up with my friends without the expense of a party, and am very gutted not to be able to go!

In the past I have won a couple of completions but have missed out on a few, they are judge by cheers or the crowd so popular or big boobed girls are more likely to win. Regardless of this I am sure that my Corpse Bride costume, made for Halloween last year would win hands down : ) U
nfortunately we are going the week afterwards for a couple for birthdays and the week before for mothers day and cant afford to travel the 120 miles to our home town 3 weeks in a row : (

A friend of mine is making an Oogie Boogie costume which I just know will be awesome! I will post a photo of him - I hope there will be one! - after the event. I found this wonderful costume online, I love the toy worms and spiders and the rough seams. I would love a chance to make one myself, so it has been filed away as a possible in my "to do" list : )
