Thanks, and do you mean your thread or what?

Omake:

Two people actually recognized my costume!! This huge fleepin' jerk (LOL) bought this Haruka figure before I could get to it. We took a picture anyway.
He apparently buys all the DLC (see, he really is a jerk). I was so happy!!


Did you sign it for him?!  :D
Must learn Japanese one of these days ... T_T

You already look a lot like her. So that would help =)

And that makes you the 3rd cosplayer I know (not personally) that are the embodiment of a certain character XD

I've come back here to consider a new project...

Wired Marionette.


This costume is beautiful in design and wonderful.
Of course, I already foresee some difficulties.

*Wired Bodice- At first thought looks difficult. But I'm thinking of using either hoop skirt wiring or corset boning and using a metallic fabric. The boning will make the fabric become rigid and stiff and look more like the wired bodice.

*Skirt- The back of the skirt opens up and the petticoat is visible. This prevents me from making the petticoat part of the skirt and thus saving on fabric. The circular waved hem of the skirt also seems a bit difficult. Thinking how to carefully do it.

*Boots- Thinking about how to do this still...I'm thinking about crafting armor or some kind of boot cover. Any suggestions?

This will probably be very hard to do, especially the metal parts, but if you do finish it, I'm sure it would be awesome.

Good luck!

I don't see why you couldn't go with boot covers.  If you can craft it out of the same fabric as the bodice it'll still match wonderfully.  You might have to make the knee covers separately, but with your skills I'm sure you could manage to make them fit right in.  I don't imagine it being impossible to make it out of some kind of craft metal either.  It's your call, though I do imagine making it out of metal could be more expensive depending on what you use.

I think it'd be neat if you went for the authentic metal route, but using fabric throughout would be just as groovy.

Isn't metal like that... banned at some cons? Metal straps might be okay at most places if the metal isn't that tough and didn't poke, but no matter how you slice it, metal... can hurt if you kick someone with it, even accidentally. You might want to look around at con rules and stuff to see if that stuff's okay. I think I remember one con banning any sort of metal that wasn't a button or a buckle once. Not trying to discourage you or anything, just saying some places might not take too kindly to that stuff.

... I knew a guy that liked doing fiberglass stuff, but I'm not sure how that would pan out in this case.

Yeah I wasn't thinking of doing actual metal. Metal work is not my specialty after all.
That's why I'm thinking of going with a fiberglass or fabric based boot cover.

Ah, sorry. With all that talk of metal and crafting armor, I must've gone into RPG mode. ^^

Cael is not a craftsman. I put my skill points elsewhere. ^^;;

Really? I've only heard about weapons ban, and even that is unless they are cosplay props reported to the organisators before con/while buying the idents (only talking about melee ones ofc.).

But then again, I have never been on any big conventions like you have in US (or just "more in the west")...

ROFL. Must gather some metals and gain some experience before I do things like that.
But yeah just some fabric and/or fiberglass for now.

Yeah...Well it's extremely costly.
Besides...I don't know anything about metal working nor have an appropriate workshop to be making metal boots.

And dancing in those. *cringe*
Which leads me to my next point....

Even though the iDOLM@STER accessories are extremely unrealistic, it still kind of defies reason to dance in metal boots which leads me to believe if it was real they would be some kind of boot covers.

Boots- Would tin foil give the boots a metal look? But even so, that would be a lot of tin foil.
