Voila! I've revamped a few parts of my Kraehe costume~!
:squee:

Ffff, there's a lot about this photo I really don't like, i.e. there's so much wrong with my stance. .-. We were rushing through this photoshoot so we could go change into our Young Justice costumes, so there wasn't much time to adjust poses and whatnot. But oh well!! I'll just have to redo this photo next time I wear the costume~ :D

Anyway- new plate, new wig! It's pretty exciting. At least, I'm excited. :F

This is really cool.... your cosplay is wonderful
I hope you don't mind saying.... I can't tell if it's the camera angle or not, but your back foot looks slightly sickled( sorry, I've been dancing for awhile and thee things catch my eye)

Oh no worries! I think it's just the camera angle. :) Either way, this is the screenshot we were trying to mimic, rather than use proper ballet technique: [link]

ah, ok. Yeah, I think it's the camera angle then.
You did a pretty good mimic on the picture.

<3 this! More Kraehe photos to be had at our cosplay meetup and we will have lots of time to fix poses! I've got a list for your and court that I want to have the two of you do! And I really like the updates! As we've said Kraehe's bodices = evil T.T

Thanks girl! :D I think we're only planning on bringing the rehearsal versions back to school, though - because transporting our tutus on the Megabus is just a no-go. @_@

TheRestlessCosplay Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011
Yeah, transporting them on the bus would be such a pain, especially with the hoop x.x Do you have a tutu bag? If not I think Discount Dance has them on clearance for $18! Which rocks because I think they are usually more than $30. Keeps your tutu nice and protected ^.^ Too bad though... Hae some nice places to do Tutu shoots and I really wanted to pose the two of you in KraehxTutu, but we can do a class shoot and I can pose the two of you then mawhahaha!!! ... that is if the two of you don't mind me posing the both of you?

We do have tutu bags, but the MegaBus gets so crowded and those would be considered too large for carry-on - and I just totally would not trust leaving them in the cargo area under the bus, they'd probably end up getting crushed. @_@ It's not really an issue for Courtney's tutu, but with mine.. Oh lordy that makes me nauseous just thinking about it!

But a class shoot will still be fun!! :D Probably less conspicuous too, hehe! And yes, by all means we appreciate all the help we can get for poses! I always research stuff beforehand, but as soon as we get into the actual shoot, we forget all of our ideas. :faint: It happens every. single. time. for most of the shoots we do, haha!

Oh man smashed tutu x.x *falls down never ending stairs/dies* that is what that thought made me feel. And I keep picturing the poor feathers! I'm going to have tutu nightmares tonight!

OMG!!!!!! I'M SO HAPPY THE TWO OF YOU WILL LET ME POSE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO PUMPED! GROUP EFFORT FOR THE WIN!!!! It will be so much fun1!!! literally happy dancing in my chair right now! And yeah, Brandi and me had a bunch of ideas for our tutu shoot at ACen and we pretty much forgot them all and became deer in headlights O.O We can help each other with the posing for tutu shenanigans that weekend!

In reality I'm probably only going to bring Kraehe with x.x since I'm working on Andrea's Princess tutu and re-vamping Kraehe and with school, yeah... I've got other cosplay projects started but I really don't see them being done T.T so I'll just bring Maria with since I had to cancel Brandi and my fun shoot day.
Next semester I'm hoping to re-make the actual tutu. Going to use birthday/holiday money to order the supplies, slowly Kraehe improvements will be made!

It really makes me happy that we can talk about Kraehe crazy-ness! *hug*

Also when we do some photo shoots in the burbs we're going to eat at this Italian place, and have the best Italian Ice EVER!!! So prepare yourself for awesome-ness!

I knowwww! @_@ It's one of the reasons I'm going to make a new tutu for the Odile version. The feathered one is just so tricky to travel with!

SLKFGJH I JUST GOT SO EXCITED FOR THIS SHOOOOT~ :la: And 'deer in headlights' is a great way to describe it! xD I even had spent the day before the con making a list of pictures I wanted to take... and as soon as the camera came out I forgot them all. x____x But if we're all working together we should get great results!!

Yeah I'm thinking I'll just be bringing Rue and Gwen at this point. I may bring Pansy and Cheryl Mason, too, just to have with me in case shoot opportunities pop up during the semester.. But I think that's gonna be it! Because other than that I have to transport all the Odile/Odette supplies too. @_@ Ughhh I wanted those done before school started but of course that didn't happen!

Spoilers: I've been dipping into my savings account so much for Odile Kraehe... Guh!

And me too, I love it because no one else quite knows what we're going through when it comes to these costumes!! xD

HNNNGH I LOVE ITALIAN ICE. SIGN ME UP~! :squee:

O.O Doesn't the Odile version have feathers on it as well (at least the pictures I've been using have)???

I'm so pumped for this shoot!!! The collective effort will make it awesome! We'll have to do it in the spring as well! When the gardens are in bloom! Oh man! I'm soooo excite!!! Really can't wait to see you can Court!

AHHH GWEN!!!! YOU'RE SUCH A PERFECT GWEN!!! Man oh man! This really makes me want to get my Weeping Angel done, even though Gwen has meet them, still want to! We need to find a Captain Jack Harkness! I had plans to try and get most of my cosplay projects done over the summer... but one of my summer classes was the devil! x.x

Oh man! I wish I had $$ in my saving account to dip into T.T I really can't wait to see the photos you take at Youma! It's going to be dazzling I know it!

*hugs* oh the feathers... that seem to end up everywhere!, Tulle, Tulle, more tulle... beading... more feathers! lol!

*puts your name on the list* It's a little place but we have to make sure to get there before or after the lunch rush so we don't have to stand in line forever. If you go during the rush you will end up waiting in a line that curves around the block!

It does, but I think I want to do them differently for the Odile version. :D The way I have them now works for her default tutu, but I'm going to mix it up for this new version!! Plus I want an excuse to make another tutu.... I think I'm addicted. @_@

Yesyesyes spring meet-up too, please!! Then we'll all have new costumes as well! xD Ohhh my god my dream is to do a Disney Princess shoot downtown, a la "Enchanted"... That'd be so insanely fun!!

Thank you~! :blush: Oh my god, Torchwood + Weeping Angels would be SO EPIC. :squee: We need to do that sometime!! And my friend Ken is going to be my Jack, I don't think he can make it to the meet-up but I'll have 'im at Youmacon and ALA. :D And an Owen at ALA, too!!

Hehe thank you for the vote of confidence! I'm both really nervous and really excited for this shoot, I just want it to be absolutely perfect! @_@

And that sounds good!! Probably after the lunch rush will work best, I'm sure we'll be busy photoshootin' all morning! :D

f i may ask. how did you do the wig? I am planing on doing a kreahe cosplay for Febuary, and i'm missing the wig >>

:iconmangosirene:
MangoSirene Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's a stubbed high ponytail wig with a detachable cowlick, if that makes sense! It was pretty complicated to do so if you're still new to wig styling, you may want to commission it or use an alternative method, like getting a shorter wig and attaching a feather to it to mimic Kraehe's hairstyle. :D

I am new to wig styling, I think I may just buy a Rizo wig and cut,curl and stab it with feathers. Thank you for telling me though.

I can really see the improvements in this cosplay :D I love the shape of your bodice. I love your new wig as well but I'm worried that your bangs are going to cover your eyes again (as they are a bit in the picture). I would maybe thin the bangs out a bit just in case?

:iconmangosirene:
MangoSirene Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks, girl! :glomp: Yeah, the bodice is the one part I didn't have to remake, thank goodness! And the bangs actually haven't been an issue - this is the only photo where they're close to getting in my eyes. Her bangs are technically supposed to be rather full and poofy, and I think this wig does a lot better at mimicking that than the first one did. :)
