Hello hello again~ Hope everyone has had a really lovely weekend! In coming; wall of text! Here with some new work finally! Really excited to finally share this costume! I have always really wanted to cosplay Ryoko but I didn't know which version, with as stunning Myoubi I had just the right motivation! Really wanted to upload a pair shot but only have this one so far sorry ;3;
This costume was quite challenging to me, with only one reference picture and and panels and seams running all over the costume I had to have a long think about how to tackle it! It took quite a long time to draft and mock up, I kept deciding I didn't like a certain shape or this part wasn't the right proportion! The biggest challenge was to decide how to get into this costume! I managed by having the front panel press stud up and under neath was a zip down to the waist! In the end I did really have a great time sewing it! Even though all the top stitching drove me crazy since this material tore up on the machine grrr! I found a good way to make pleather bias atleast! Use a hair straightener and sit in front of the TV! I really learnt a lot from this costume though and quite proud of it!
Unfortunately though I wasn't able to complete it for my deadline and had to shoot alone, her shots were gorgeous but it was my first time I really just couldn't finish and I was quite crushed ;; felt so bad to let someone down ;; yes I had made 3 costumes along with it but should have done better orz ;;;
Luckily we were able shoot again in Singapore with our friend Brian! We did a studio shoot with friends to help and we both really had fun even though we were quite rushed haha! I had a horrid cold which was deadly in Singapore, sorry for my red nose in the shot haha ;;;
Thank you to Brian for shooting and having fun with us, to Amano for the smoke machine lend, I really appreciate it! To and Leo for helping out too! You guys are great! Last to beautiful for being perfect as Myoubi and with organisation, sorry for letting you down the first shoot D: ;;;
Thank you granny and my aunt/uncle for letting me move the sofa away for this shoot I might blog about this shoot because I spent the most effort on ever ;- But it makes me want to do more, all the hard work was worth it. But seriously it would not have happened if the above friends did not help. AND, my beautiful elegant Yuuko, thank you for making the distance for this. I am super thankful! <3
