I'm very pleased with the final result. I like the fabric choice and I like the fact I chose to do those red details from satin ribbon instead of normal cotton ribbon (which doesn't shine). The vest has a hidden zipper at the left side. though if I had to do this again i'd probably put the zipper at the back of the vest. Because now it's a bit hard to put on and if I had bigger head, I wouldn't be able to put it on...
Then I started to do the shoes and breast armor for Asuna. I still haven't finished them, but hopefully next week I'm able to do so.
I need to put the grey outlines to the armor and also color two crosses grey and attach them to the armor. I might also apply color to the armor itself to make it look not-so-soft XD This is the first armor I have ever made >__< the armor is made out of craft foam. I was happily surprised how easy it is to work with! I'm really looking forward to see how this ends up
For Asuna's shoes I used some old boots I had lying in my closet. I had once used them in a cosplay, but I hated them so bad. I completely failed to alter the shoes back then and they ended up looking horrible. The white paint was peeling off with every step and (╯ಊ╰) so horrible...
I cut the shoes and made the tip of the shoe a bit rounder. After that I made the pattern for the shoecovers. I pinned some fabric on top of the shoe and drew lines with pencil where the pins were.
|First pin the random fabric and then draw the lines|
|Then you should end up with the patterns :)|
|Shoes when the shoecovers weren't attached and|
|the same shoes when I had sewn them and hot glued the bottom part.|
⌀ make belt
⌀ add lining to the white thing under the vest
⌀ Finish shoes
⌀ Finish armor
As you can see I still have a lot to do... ☆￣(＞。☆)
