I'm so friggin proud of this beast I could cry. It's SO heavy and SO hot and the face tape and wig tug my forehead like crazy and I can't touch my face because I'd smear the makeup I've spent an hour and a half applying but god I love every second I spend inside it.
The first time I put it on my makeup was rushed and ugly and I was devastated about how bad I looked in this thing that took us so long. But yesterday after fixing most of the problems I put it on and I loved it SO much. There are still things missing, but I can finally say I'm happy!
I wanna thank a few people, because I couldn't have done this alone.
First and most important to my precious birb son @kirtashcrosscosplay
my cosplay buddy who suffered with me every day for two months. I still don't know how the heck did we manage to make them, they were SO beyond our skills and god, did we struggle lmao But still, we did it!
and everyone who spent a few hours at my house cutting feathers, we couldn't have done it without you all
for all the support helping me buy makeup and helping us carry everything and doing everything you could and more.
who supported us at Metropoli
This might be weird but thanks to @kimidoricosplay
for putting online her whole ubume process, it was so helpful! Everytime something didn't work or I was stuck on ideas I looked through your process in facebook and it helped me solve So. Many. Problems. The underbust idea is genius!
And speaking of the underbust, special props to @thelematherion
's tutorial, which was SO easy to follow and the result was amazing.
And the most important, thanks to my mum for all the help and love and support. For helping me investigate how to do the corset, and the thousand times I made you stop by the haberdashery to buy me supplies, and for sitting there next to me in the hospital for two days, handsewing together the sleeve borders so I could make it on time, and all the help you gave me on the final rush!
Sorry for the wall of text, over and out!
