Collar and pocket, nothing special. The top part of the collar did almost drive me insane though, since it just wouldn't stand up, but eventually I fixed it. It now consists of four layers of
fabric. (Yeah I know, I could just have gotten myself some interfacing and that'd have solved the problem but lolnope, I did it the hard way)
Shoes and a derpy me wearing said shoes (aaand the mirror center thingy is kind of censoring the shoes out so all you have left is the fabulous me and a door, nice). I desperately sought some lace that would be very similar in color to my coat, but that was the closest thing I could find, so I'm not fully content with them, but I'm not going to attempt to dye them either since they're 100% shitty synthetic material.
Buttons! I found these babies for only 0.35 a piece, that really made my day. It's so much more fun to sew on 14 buttons you like on a coat than 14 buttons you don't (obviously, duuh). No but seriously, they match the overall outfit really well and add some nice detail at the same time, so I'm really happy about them.
And some really unflattering pics of the finished (or not so finished in the (blurry) pic on the lower right) coat! I'm honestly surprised of how little time it took me to make it~
So now I'm all set for Tampere Kuplii the next weekend! I'm really really looking forward to cosplay again and see some friends I haven't seen in a while. I'm going to wear Alois on Sunday, and on Saturday I'll wear Bernkastel, which will be really fun, I haven't taken her out in a while and I'm also kind of in love with her after recently reading the final part of Umineko, she is just so. cool. And evil too for the matter, but I don't care she's a marvelous character. There will be pics from TK, so stay tuned haha.
And on a completely unrelated note, I got tagged in this blog award thingy at momochuunosekai, (thank you! OuO) and the basic idea is to tag five peoples blogs (the blogs should have less than 200 followers) to spread the word about smaller blogs. (I'm doing a very rough and short translation here, if you want to read the full thing, go to momos blog ^^) So, I'm going to tag a couple of blogs here.
Pukuleikkiä - A lovely and fun cosplay blog with many pictures of different kinds. And cats. Many cats. Cats and cosplay are equally awesome, do it's definitely worth checking out!
Hanskun cosplay ahdistukset - Once again a lovely blog dedicated to cosplay. At this blog you'll find lots and lots of progress pictures of both props and costumes and last but not least, wigs! (And there are pictures of me in it, now that beats everything! Ok I'm coming of as really narcissistic today, this is the second time I talk about me being "awesome") No but seriously, go check this one out too, you can definitely learn something from it!
Valkoinen Samurai's Cosplay - Ok now this is something for the one who likes traditional Japanese clothing and characters who wear it, because you are going to find tons of that on this blog! Plus, the blog is updated quite frequently, and that's always nice. (I wish I could say that about my own blog lol)
Orelium - Not a cosplay blog, more of a personal blog, but she posts some really nice artwork every once in a while, so for you who are interested in that should definitely pay her blog a visit!
Angie's Anime & other Arts - Ok so this is one is a really cool cosplay/art blog with a little of everything, tutorials, progress pictures, artwork and cosplay photos. She makes some really gorgeous cosplays, and I seriously can't believe she's younger than me!
Ok so I didn't really do this blog award thing completely according to the rules, but I tagged some blogs, who can feel free to tag some other blogs if they want to, and I suppose that was the very basic idea haha~ Over and out.
