Frozen Anna costume making

Finally did my Anna cosplay shoot together with Rushi as Elsa! My freckles very fail :( ... Finished the costume back in July, how time flies! Wanna re-shoot cuz i would like to wear this costumes again xD.

Fabric shopping!  ...The shades of colour i chose. 

Started with the skirt.

Lots & lots of hand embroidery. This is the part that took most of my time!!

My reference for the skirt pattern :)

Top base.

More embroidery!

On-going embroidery. Its very inconsistent & imbalance & i know there are other easier ways to make the patterns but i really love the embroidery feel 

After embroidery & adjustments to the shaping.

Reference for top pattern :)

Shaping on Anna's cloak.

Was unable to find purple fur balls so i cut out circles of felt.


Overall look  ... & also my hat that took me the whole night figuring out the shape! Wig is from - 青墨COS for people that are interested :)

Love Live! START DASH making.

Honoka Start Dash! costume. Rushed out the costume in around 3 days to join the cosplay competition at Otakyun!


Circle skirt for inner white dress.

Ribbon making ♥ 

Zipper attached.

+ buttons & gold lining~ Done! 

White inner dress couldn't fit my mannequin after attaching the zipper (mannequin too fat lol), so couldn't get a completed costume picture. :(

Full view. Selfie on Otakyun! day 2. Spot my little Ginger doing the "shy" pose & Vanilla under the table~ :3

Boots cover are also self-made with same fabric use for the costume so they'll match perfectly. Interfacing + sneakers inside~ Quite badly made & was torn a bit after the event lol~  

Overall quite satisfied with the costume ^^.. Though i think it is a bit too pink for me (love pink but don't usually wear pink lol)~ But Love Live is love!  ... Looking forward in making more LL costumes! So more pink in the future maybe? xD

Free! team :)

Not forgetting selfies with guest cosplayers on day 2 & 3! 

I went back early that day because i need to go back to get ready for a wedding dinner im attending that night. So i missed out the meet & greet sessions with the guests & also wasn't able to get any merchandises from them before of my budget this month TwT... Also wasn't able be present during the prize giving ceremony & surprisingly, i won in the solo cosplay competitions! Maybe i should join more competitions in the future xD

Big thanks to Erleen who helped me to get my prize for me! :)

Cert signed by Kappy & Onnies + Tony Moly goodies.

Super love the cute panda packaging :3

Ending the post with my punk-rocker look with my real hair after wig off xD

Otakyun! 2014 [Day 2]

I kept missing out previous local events because of busy schedule. This time i made sure to join no matter what. Cleared off some of my schedules & i manged to join day2 & day3 during the afternoon-evening & still have other plans for morning & night. Glad i was able to clear off afternoon schedule if not i won't be able to join & completely missed out the whole event again ><... What a busy weekend!

*Missed out day 1 because of prom*

Tried joining the cosplay competition for the first time & decided to dance Start Dash!

Learnt the routine & rushed out the costume a few days before competition. (will blog about Start Dash costume wip another time)...Very last minute, that's why there are mistakes during performance. >< *not going to post out the video xD* .. I think it was my first time dancing with a wig & i find it quite challenging. Unlike real hair, it will get messed up very easily & i kept worrying that the wig will fly off during stage performance LOL because i seen it happen before .. Also felt weird dancing solo for a three person routine~

Changed into uniform version to join my LL team 

One of the reasons that im excited for Otakyun! Guest cosplayers Onnies & Kappy ♥.. Super love their costumes *w*.. Sad that i missed out their meet & greet session on day 3.

Got the Haru-chan pillow that Z risked his life for lollll... Thank you 

Selfie collage~

My Umi & Kotori-chan ♥.. They are one of the committees of the event & was busy running around the whole day, leaving awkward Honoka alone :'( ... So we only got a few pictures together.

Some pictures from Erleen~
