Astha W.I.P. Sleeve

This past weekend I worked on my Astharoshe Asran/Trinity Blood cosplay I plan on wearing to Saboten Con this year. Saboten isn't until the end of September and after finish adding all the appliques onto the sleeve and attaching the whole entire sleeve onto the main dress in two days I now have renewed hope that I CAN finish this cosplay by then.... as long as my hand doesn't give out on me. XD

The base of the sleeve is made out of blue Casa Satin while the appliques are made out of white Casa Satin, blue velvet, and white/gold cotton I wanted to use for a quilt but never got around to making it. The piping is made out of gold spandex and the jewels are acrylic jewels I got from the craft store and glued on with fabric glue. Parts of the sleeve was glued together but the appliques were hand sewn onto the sleeve itself... and is the reason why its taking so long to make this cosplay. XD

It took two days to complete this part of one sleeve. I'm working on the other sleeve and as of now it's near to completion. ^_^

I now understand why people say they go crazy working on their Trinity Blood cosplays. I think I nearly lost it a few times over the weekend... and that's why I'm currently surfing the internet instead of sewing. *cough*needs a break from sewing*cough*

EDIT: Due to events in my life beyond my control, I will not be able to finish it in time for Saboten 2011. I plan on finishing and wearing it to the Phoenix Comicon 2012, but I do not plan on competing in it as of this edit. :)
