Because I apparently don't learn from my mistakes (and because it was awesome last time, of course), I've decided to try out for ECG once again at next year's J-popcon, this time in the singles division. The costume?
|Oh god, the embroidery!|
In all honesty, I've wanted to make this costume since I saw it all over Japan Expo 2011 on the huge promotional billboards for Bride Stories (as it's called in France; amusing how the same manga can have several english titles...) and since I'm barred from entering ECG in a group this year and have no interest in going back to WCS, well, things just worked out.
So, how far am I?
|In case you hadn't noticed, I'm ALSO a terrible photographer|
...buying materials counts as progress, right? ^_^;
In any case, I intend to start on the skirt embroidery this week, to get into a work rythm again - with ECG, a summer in Japan and a ton of stuff crashing down on me in september, I haven't had time to do much in the vein of cosplay since the bad old days of ECG-crunch in June, so I think I need to ease into it. Besides, J-pop isn't in another five and a half months, right?

Ice-nine, over and out!
