Already posted this on ACP last week but haven’t gotten around to putting it up here. Here’s the jellyfish dress from Kuragehime. Still need to properly finish it up since I ran out of time to do the accessories for AnimeNext but I’m not in much of a hurry since I won’t be going to another con for months. I sort of want to replace the wig since it’s kind of thin at the top but I don’t think there’s really anything else waist-length and wavy or curly in lavender. (It’s the Showgirl wig by New Look in Purple.)


More of the cosplay meme… I think most other people finished it up already. ^_^;;

11. Something cosplay-related that you will never do (eg. crossplay, cosplay from a certain series)
Cosplay from a series I dislike. For me to cosplay something I have to like the series, even if I’m ambivalent about the character. I’ve done a few costumes where I loved the series but didn’t especially care about the character because I liked the outfits over those worn by my favorite characters from that series.

12. Your cosplay idol.
Um, I don’t really have one person in particular. I feel a bit out of the loop with what people are making these days since not that many post regularly on LJ anymore.

13. Your cosplay specialty (ie. something that seems to apply to a large amount of your cosplays, it could be a specific series, or a common feature in their appearance, such as glasses)
I guess there are a few answers to this. I’ve done a whole bunch of Count D costumes plus other Chinese style costumes. And construction-wise, I’m usually doing linings or seam finishes. To a lesser extent, I also tend to do a lot of detail work like applique and hand painting.

14. Your cosplay-making habits (eg. singing while working on cosplay)
Hmm… I tend to do handsewing like hemming or sewing on snaps and buttons in front of the computer so I can also watch stuff while working.

15. Your least favourite thing about cosplay
Probably the preparation work like gathering supplies (there are times when I feel like I go into store after store and there’s nothing that I like) and altering patterns and cutting fabric. I tend to work better once the stuff is cut out and I start sewing but getting started on something is sometimes hard for me.
