Since Winter Soldier was awesome, have some more Captain America loli! It’s a shame I didn’t get any full view pics of my coord last night because the new shoes I have (matte blue heels with patriotic bows) look WAY better than those red pumps I originally wore. I think the new curly wig is better too but the old straight one also has its charms.

I really want to replace my old yucky striped socks with Meta’s new sailor striped socks…there’s even little stars on it! I’m sure I’m going to think about this so hard the red ones will be sold out when I finally make up my mind :P.

I bought this dress the moment it was released…and it took over 3 months before I was able to wear it. While I adore the print and design of this dress, I was disappointed with the quality. The zipper broke and the dress is not patterned correctly in the front. Plus a dress made of such a delicate polyester satin needed boning in the bodice. So I installed some boning, replaced the zipper (which needs to be replaced again once I can find the right color) and ran a gather stitch at the top of the bodice to make it a sweetheart neckline. I’m glad I can wear this now, but I will always be a little sad that I paid so much for a product that should have been better. 

But this coord turned out nice at least! It’ll be better once I get some lavender tights instead of layering light pink tights over purple ones :).

I decided to put Edea to the side for now and make yet another costume for the local con next month (Sabakon! ). Woo for Sailor Uranus costume #635187462537! It’s classic manga Uranus this time. Not bad progress for one day, but how many senshi fuku have I done at this point? Hem is a bit out of control but I think once it is sewn and the pins are out and I can do some ironing it should be good!

So far I’m pleased with this new open-front overdress I made to go with my BtSSB Sleeping Beauty skirt. The bodice is boned and lined and there are 16 of those little buttons in the front! Can you tell half of them are 7/16” and the other half are 1/2”? Joann didn’t have enough of either in stock so I mixed them in together. I used a rayon/poly blend sateen accented with a gold dotted ivory chiffon. I’m still trying to decide whether the trim I used at the top of the bodice should go on the skirt ruffle as well…I’m going for a slightly OTT classic look but I don’t want to go TOO overboard!

Overdress: By me

Skirt: Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Sleeping Beauty Princess Skirt

Shirt: Kohl’s (a lucky find on the clearance rack!)

Progress on Edea this afternoon - I have pumpkin pants and a mostly completed under dress with attached capelet! I still need sleeves but I’m still deciding whether I want to buy those 40 grommets or be cheap and fake them with the embroidery machine. I put the belt around the dress to mimic the silhouette of her dress. It’s pretty funny how cute this looks when nearly all of the rest of this costume is pleather. Pleather leggings, pleather overdress (with ruffles, yes) and pleather belts. I think that’s what I like about the design so much - the opposing materials and design elements that somehow still work together!

Added a reference picture so you know what version of Edea I’m making. This being me, I fell in love with the most obscure outfit of hers possible.

In progress: Edea’s DLC Military Cadet costume from Bravely Default! And while I was making this, I decided to film my method for making super simple ruffles. No need for a traditional gathering stitch or annoying and expensive ruffler foots - you just need a sewing machine and the willingness to adjust it to do things it normally doesn’t do!

Feedback is appreciated! This is my first video tutorial and I’d like to make more and make them better in the future.

Happy Valentine’s Day from the world’s most perfect couple, Otani and Koizumi.
Koizumi is me; Otani is Emmabellish. More pics coming soon!
Too bad I’m usually the stoic serious characters…if you give me an excuse to make a crazy face I will take that chance and run with it!
