I'm also floored -- that's likely the toughest piece done for the most part. Even with steps detailed, I just can't wrap my head around the redonkulous effort that must've took. How long have you been doing cosplay? Your prowess there boggles the mind, as usual~. :3
Suddenly, bow-wow-wow~. :3

Whoa, that is a cool, genuine cosplay! Are you adding the belt and those little diamond things sticking on the tips of that skirt wings?

Yes! Hunting for a belt currently. :3 And yes I will be adding the diamond thingies! They serve two purposes really- decoration and a way to help ease the corner bias into place so it looks nice from both sides!

Thank you!! <3 I also think this was one of the most difficult parts. I think the most difficult part was getting the BEAST of a shell into the sewing machine. Many awkward moments sewing the whole piece.

The first costume I ever made myself from scratch was Scarlet Sprite (http://forum.project-imas.com/index.php/topic,1646.0.html) and that was back in 2012. So I guess it's only been 2 years! At that time, I had only really been sewing for a year and I'm mostly self taught so I still think I have a lot to learn!

Gotta admit, this is pretty badass. Well done.

Quick question: How long do you think this took in general? Not counting other things like school, sleep, and other things besides this?

That is a great question!

Here's a rough estimate:

14 hours up until creating the skirt tails
6-8 hours of creating the skirt tails and finishing off everything else.

So probably somewhere in the 20~25 hour range for completion.

Jesus Christ, a whole day..... I guess being an artist, whether it be for drawing or costume design, requires a LOT of patience. But at least the process of doing things like this is usually fun. I'd like to assume you at least had fun doing this. :P

Wow! You look just like your avatar! :D

But you're missing a little gold chain... *shot*

Just kidding, that's insignificant! ;)

Acceleration. NOW.

But dang, that's great stuff. How much did it end up costing you? I actually had my mom make me a pair of shorts, and the fabric was more than I thought it would be.

This is amazing! I thought cosplay was always bad, but now I know I was wrong!

Hehe, perhaps I will. ^_^; Then again...

And actually better/cheaper than I thought. I set myself a budget of $91 (weird number, I know) but it only cost me slightly over $70 for everything (fabric wise). It helps that I had coupons and such.

This is amazing! I thought cosplay was always bad, but now I know I was wrong!

Thank you so much! ! I'm glad I could change your opinion!

Just made my CD for the masquerade today! ^_^; Hope it all goes well!
Also, because I'm stupid, I'm learning the last 30 seconds (roughly) of Acceleration as part of my walk-on
