I bet a lot of people want to know how I made my Hizaki cosplay, so here's some progress photos
I started off with the bodice. My fabric of choice for this: italian velvet (it's a upholstery fabric).
Here's the front.
And the back.
Before make and attach the sleeves, I started to make the skirt. My fabric of choice: shantung jacquard.
For the frills I used the same italian velvet.
Make some straps first.
Make the frills by hand
Testing the fit between the frills to attach them later.
Such a heavy skirt needs a crinoline to support all that weight, so I made one.
Oh my! It can stand on its own!
Time to make and attach the sleeves.
If you want to work with heavy fabrics as the velvet I used, you'll need strong and sharp scissors x_x
Details of the fabric for the sub-sleeves(?)
Painting roses, because I couldn't find the color I wanted. This reminds me "Alice in Wonderland" by Disney, when the cards are painting red the white roses xD
Painting lace. Sorry for the poor quality of the last photos, I didn't have the camera with me in those last days T_T
Done! All made by hand D:
I didn't photographed some things because the deadline was so close and I needed to hurry up, sorry
