Latias Update 2

Posted on

The dress piece is almost finished.  All the red appliqué has been applied to the shirt front and back, and the skirt pieces are completely gathered and sewn together.  It’s taken me a couple tries to get the shirt and skirt right, but I’m happy with how they look.  Still, I have to sew the shirt to the skirt, make and apply the collar, add the blue triangle appliqué, sew part of the back seam, attach the sleeves, and put in the zipper.  I might have to fit the shirt better since I used a modified historical type pattern to get the look and feel I was aiming toward.  So far the shirt looks fine, but I want to make sure it fits well in the waist, bust, and hips (which aren’t really a problem with this cosplay, which is nice.  It’s really nice to only have two fitting related areas to worry about, especially since it’s so close to con, aka 9 days away). 

I just realized that I only have 9 days left until the convention this month.  Ahh!  What have I been doing all this time?!  I’ve got a lot to sew and wigs to style once they arrive.  Elgh, so much to do, so little time is such a true saying now.  Sigh.  Nevertheless, I’m making progress, and I have some pictures to share!!!!  In order, the pictures go shirt front, shirt back, shirt, and shoes.  Enjoy!

  1. I'm not familiar with the character, but the outfit looks cute. 🙂 I hope you were able to finish it all on time.How was the convention? Did you get everything ready on time?

  2. Thank you! ^_^ The convention went well, but I wasn't able to get everything done on time though Latias was mostly finished and debuted on time. I'm very happy about that. Even though I didn't get everything done, the convention was a bunch of fun. ^_^ I wrote up a synopsis in this post: http://costumecrazy.blogspot.com/2011/06/long-awaited-update.html.
