still working my nao cosplay, and thank God we're in the home stretch and on schedule.
the hood proved to be somewhat easier than i originally anticipated. attaching it to the shirt was a snap, took about an hour hand sewing it. i would have loved to have used my machine, but it was 1 AM and the household was asleep. i want this shit done, but i don't want to be a dick about it.
this morning, i tired the whole thing on about three times adjusting the overage on the back and trimming it down to get a decent shape. in that process, i also decided that my huge hooters do not look good in this top. but i may have a solution. i'm going to go by a sporting goods store and get a compression shirt. i read it helps heavy/large chested cosplayers tame their titties. with the hood done, i got to the part i was most excited about since i started this project: the extra long stripped sleeves.
i was sooo excited. i just knew this would be the easiest, fastest and cutest part yet. it is 10:30 at night and i just finished a little while ago. it. was. HELL. because of this:
but, ohmahgosh, SO CUUUUTE!
|yeah, gonna have to iron those sleeves :-/|
one day and one thing left to do: the mousey face. I'm determinted more than anything for this not to be an all day process. i got a lot of other shit to do. IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!
