ahaha...finally got my lazy ass out of the house to do a shoot...was really scared we wouldn't be able to shoot because it kept threatening to rain on us...but thankfully it didn't >.<
Big shout-out to helpers and photos for braving the bad weather to help us to do this shoot and much love to my amazing partner who took up the challenge of making this D: costume so I could have a bishie bishie syaoran and not be forever alone
It's been a long time since I've shot with kiri~ think we've both levelled up massively since then <3 <3 <3 feel so shiawase in this photo ohohohohohoho
FINALLY A NEW COSTUME SINCE COSFEST <3 Well...techncially not quite since someone else made this >.<
Love this shot *_* Syaoran kun looks really manry here <3 <3 <3
Gorgeous Sakura gown made by I fixed it up and blinged it for the ICDS competition and my tailor auntie helped me take it in so it would fit.
It was so wonderful to wear *_* I felt so huge next to my handsome syaoran kun though OTL. And really getting too old for Sakura....was joking backstage that I should be Ka-kura, Sakura's Ka-san Q.Q. Thank you everyone for supporting me and not laughing at my shitty skit when I was on stage Got 1st prize in the cosplay comp with this costume <3
AND I GOT TO MEET AGAIN. Will leave that all for another spazzing post
Wanna write a little about the dress construction :3 I'm a bigger Cagalli than Lacus fangirl, but I really loved this outfit from Lacus~ I've had quite a few friends make this dress, and I looked around to see how other people did it online. I ended up sewing wire into the entire hem of the skirt to allow it to stand by itself and so I could have the folds hold because of the strange way this outfit just seems to support itself. Super painful project, that and the arm sash is entirely wired to make it stand, with bits of boning in between to keep it up~ Had an army of people help me with cutting glitter fabric and sticking it to form the patterns on the edge of the gown, and stuck about 100+ pieces of plastic jewels all over the costume for the added bling. All in all I think it took about.....40+ hrs of construction but it's one of the costumes I've made that I feel super good about
The amount of colour processing on this....haiz. I love Mulan~ she's my fav Disney heroine ever....I made the mistake of saying Princess because we had a Disney Princess team and I someone said to me....but you're (Mulan) not a Princess...and I went...Well, I saved China, what did you do recently? :3
Costume is up for sale now if anyone is interested~ AUD 35 for everything minus wig and white skirt~ Please note me if you're interested <3
Finally got a reshoot for this dress, it's been rotting in my wardrobe for so long Thank you Shiro, Kosmo and Hoshiki for allowing yourselves to be dragged out to Sentosa for the photos Was hoping for a sunset shoot, but unfortunately every time I try to get a shoot done for this outfit, something will go wrong OTL Had gray clouds and overcast skies but somehow the amazing Shiro managed to produce awesome photos. On the bright side, at least it didn't rain on us.
