Finished my large, about done with my medium and planning to get the small done tonight. Just hoping I'll have a car tomorrow to get it shipped out on time!

Still making progress on my items. I'm starting to worry I'll be running up against the deadline, I'm getting there. Smiley

Picked up my supplies the other day so I should be ready to go soon. Working on baby shower gifts right now, but hopefully I can get started on the swap package within a couple days!

Think I finally know what I'm doing for this one. Looking at doing a set for the large (that's as specific as I'm going to get Tongue), and pretty sure I know the other items as well. Hopefully I can get down to the craft store in the next couple days so I can get this going!

I have a couple things kinda planned out though I'll need the supplies. One's hopefully my large and involves stuff I haven't tried before, so here's hoping things work out okay! Craft store runs are going to be limited for a while after someone backed into my car today, so hopefully I can make my stash work for me. Smiley

I put down a few games! I had a bit over 5 things, but it included WoW and Okami which are both video games. Tongue

Project Name: Kobato cosplay
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438495.msg5297605#msg5297605
Brief Description: I recently got to cosplay as Kobato, one of my favorite anime characters. Most of it was done this month so I'm using it for a class project (yeah I'm a last-minute crafter Embarrassed). There was quite a bit of sewing involved of course, but a few places also have layers of fabric paint, or sewing on top of fabric paint, and so on, so quite a bit of downtime was involved, especially on the shirt and shoes.

9  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Kobato cosplay on: March 16, 2015 05:38:10 PM

Went to my first full anime convention recently, and of course I wanted to go in cosplay for at least part of it! I wound up doing Kobato Hanato from the anime Kobato since she's easily one of my favorites, and her outfit turned out to be pretty fun to make. The Ioryogi amigurumi was crafted by the wonderful smileyyogini in the Anime/Manga swap, but everything else was either crafted or modified by me.


The blouse was modified by a plain white long-sleeved polo. I added some yellow elastic partway along the sleeves (horrible idea btw, it barely showed up!), colored the collar with fabric paint, drew on the orange border and leaves, and sewed on the flowers and added new buttons. The green cuffs are separate pieces and stay on with an elastic insert.


The skirt was made out of cotton with the bottom half of a hobbit pattern (I accidentally lost the pattern I'd intended to use Embarrassed) with an elastic waist added, the green and yellow ribbons were sewn on, and again I drew on the orange border and the leaves, and sewed on the flowers. Technically the flowers should have had four petals, but I wound up just using the petals part of some artificial flowers and didn't find any 4-petal ones until it was too late.

I found the hat at a local Joann and added some green ribbon to it, and for the shoes I wound up having to order some white canvas mary-jane style shoes and attack them with some more fabric paint. The ankle socks are there purely for comfort since those shoes apparently hate the backs of my ankles. Tongue


The bag was made completely from scratch, pattern and all, and I might eventually post a tutorial for it since her bag has a few tricky logistics to work through (just don't do what I did and forget to treat the ends of the webbing strap!). The head of the bag is stuffed (I created a separate piece to insert inside), and the wing is a functional pocket with an attempt at quilting over fusible fleece (not confident it was done correctly but it seems to look okay).

I definitely had fun with this cosplay, even if it didn't win anything and only a few people recognized the character (obscure characters get less attention, but more love from the few that do know her apparently Tongue), but flouncing around in that skirt and wig was still all kinds of fun, and definitely something I look forward to doing again.

I recently finished my first ever cosplay, so I'm pretty psyched for another crafty challenge. I just might go ahead and sign up for this one. Cheesy
