♥♥♥Sheryl Nome WIP♥♥♥

Sheryl is about to be ready! So excited!! ヽ( ★ω★)ノ I've been wanting to make this cosplay forever and I can't believe it's almost done. I only need to finish the shoes and sew the bow together and attach it somehow to the costume. 
☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆Anyways here's some wip pictures☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

 I used some violet polyester fabric and on top of it I wanted organza, since I liked how it adds a little shine. The  skirt is actually full circle skirt, but it's just folded in half in the picture. That weird looking triangle is for the huge back bows ribbons and the rest of the pieces are for the bow and waistband. 

I also added three layers of tulle under the skirt to give it some extra poof
The finished skirt came out so good!! I love how fluffy it looks, thanks to the tulle and horsehair braid I added. There's actually no zipper in the skirt and therefore no seams on the sides. I made the center circle wide enough for me to fit the skirt on me and then gathered the extra fabric with elastic band, so it stays on. 

Here's a picture of the back bow when the ribbons are folded correctly. In the picture I haven't yet stitched them.

And the bow is actually 75 cm wide!!
After I had made the skirt I added details to the corset and made choker and armband and gloves and stockings.

The easiest way to make a gloves: draw your had on a paper, cut it, place it on the stretchy fabric, sew following the lines, cut the excess fabric and done!

Choker and armband 

I would have made the shoes already, but I didn't have any superglue left so I couldn't finish the edges。・゚゚・(>д<)・゚゚・。

Finally some pictures of the entire costume when It's laying on the floor and how it fits me

The quality is bad- iknow..And the lacing is off, I just wanted to see how everything looked on me 

Next time I'll probably post some convention pictures since it's only week till the con (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧ Can't wait~
