Stocking Anarchy - Final Product

So after several months of not getting anything done, I finally pulled myself together and got around to update this blog, and with that the Stocking Cosplay-situation

Mie and I had a blast at SVS-con with these cosplays and were generously praised for both choice of fabrics and execution of the cosplays themselves, so everything was a success! :D

we had a mini photoshoot at the convention, and a bunch of people gathered, so in the end we had a small audience + a guy with the OST, that was fun!
And then finally, the 13th of August, Mie visited me in my hometown and my lovely friends Sascha and Astird were so nice and agree to arrange a real photoshoot with us
More pictures can be seen here

 I still need to make a Stripe I (Stocking's Sword) but that will have to wait a bit since I am really busy with school right now.
so in stead have the video we also made on the 13th :

we had a blast! hope you like it !

Stocking Anarchy - The wig #2

Okay I lied, I'll show you guys the rest of the wig, since I'm sooo exited that I'm finally done with it! 
SO! Wednesday I started to finally get the balls to cut the wig.  A friend found a totally awesome tutorial for me : http://windofthestars.com/blog/tutorials/two-tone-wig-tutorial/
but I ended up just getting inspired by it ;D tho that itself helped a lot <3

 I started by separating the pink wig into 7 pieces, as shown in the tutorial.
and then I started adding them to the blue wig as shown in the tutorial. And then I regretted it all and started over xD strating with the fringe.

I worked 'till late at night Wednesday... and ate pie Thursday <3 

gasp! all that hair


(PS sorry for the lack of text, it's late and I was lazy ;D )

Stocking Anarchy - The wig

The time has come, for me to reveal the most joyous of news: THE WIGS HAVE ARRIVED!!! :D :D
lovely quality, long, no damage at all.
They're both super soft and really easy to untangle and do stuff with <3 I am really satisfied with the colors, especially the babypink one, it's so pretty. too bad that's gonna be cut up D:

Them both together, lovely yes?

I wanted to take a picture with them on, but desided against it, seeing as it'd be coolest to show you guys when they're styled and stuff ^^ 
They both end at the middle of my thigh - right above my knee. wish they were a bit longer, but I know that if they were they'd be impossible to wear at a convention 

in other news: I began on the shirt and so far it's looking goooooooooddddd 8''D

Stocking Anarchy - The Skirt #2

worked for an hour or so today, just a relaxing pace making the last small decisions on the skirt.
here's what I found out:

12m tulle is enough xD and I made the skirt itself too big. nothing that can't be fixed tho, and has been fixed already.

 Haha, sorry about the feet xD 

(tulle can stand by itself. oh, they grow op so fast <3)

Okay! so the only major change I've made so far is the back of the skirt as seen above. I think the design is a bit "meh" on the backside, so I decided that it'd be appropriate to have a little pleat here, seeing as there will be a huge bow right above this. 
I will also add blondes to the 12m tulle, making the petti slightly shorter in the process, so the blondes will just peek out under the skirt. also, the skirt will be about 2-3 cm shorter than in the pics. (yes, to me it makes a difference :p ) 

What do you think about it so far? How about the small change + shape of the skirt?

NOTE: this might be the last update about the skirt, that way it'll still be a small surprise for the convention people <3 

Stocking Anarchy - mini update 1

So I've worked for a while on the skirt, and is now satisfied with the outcome of the blue stripe which was surprisingly easy to sew on. To add a final touch of "finish" I've double seamed it, a decision that REALLY helped on the look <3 

so I went on to work on the petti! lots of tulle, 6 meters so far, which is not enough, so I'm adding another six, hoping it won't be necessary to do a petti with 18 meters of tulle xD!
then again, the bigger the better!

I hope to finish the petti today, and will be able to finish the skirt as soon as that is done. 

more update will be online tonight hopefully :D

Stocking Anarchy - The Skirt

03/01/2011 - 23:43
So a couple of hours have passed and I've finished cutting out the fabric for the skirt ~
Facebook distracted me a lot so I didn't get much done  haha

well. that strip IS light blue FYI...

Worksheet - home made xD

Stocking Anarchy

A new anime was released from Ganiax in October 2010 and I instantly loved it!
The Name is "Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt"
Not just because of it's plot, but especially because of the uniqueness of it. The way the characters are drawn in this is just like Power Puff Girls (for teens)!

Therefore, of course, I instantly fell in love with the angel Stocking Anarchy, one of the protagonists of this anime, Who along with her sister, Panty Anarchy, is hunting ghosts in Daten City to return to heaven. And being me, I just couldn't help but start searching for someone to cosplay with me as Panty.

I found her: Mie Roesgaard
We will cosplay as the Anarchy sisters in their Transformed form:

Mie and I started talking about cosplaying together in the middle of December, and Today I got around to buy fabric!

I think I got some pretty matching colors. even if they're a bit off here xD 
And now: For starting the crafting! see y'all later <3
