Sailor Moon Steampunk Cosplay Update

I have been a busy little bee and spend most of my free time at home sewing. It seems like everything that involves sewing takes 3 times longer than you think it is going to. I have a week and a half to finish the outfit and I think I am right on track. I have several things done (blouse, gloves, bag) and everything else is well on it's way. I will be sewing the skirts this week and once they are done all I have to do is the accessories, boots, spats, and a bow.
The underbust corset took longer than I had wanted but I kind of knew that was going to happen. Trying a corset in a week is a lofty goal. But, with a little extra time it got done. I don't want to give the entire outfit away yet but I did take some pictures of what is done so far. I think I like the bag most of all, and the gloves. They turned out to be cooler than I thought they were going to be. Fancier. So, onto the pictures. Everything still is a work in progress and could change.

Sewing the corset went pretty okay. It took a long time but I didn't make any major mistakes and it fits well. I was a little concerned that I would have troubled making it so once it has been so long but it all worked out. The fingerless gloves are not connected to the sleeves of the blouse I just needed to pin them on so they could be seen nicely. The lace along the hem of the gloves is so pretty and looks so lovely. It is very flattering.

I need to fit the blouse and add a few little changes but that won't take long. The bag is something that I am excited about. I needed something to carry my essential items in so I thought a nice satchel/bag that I could hook onto the bottom of the corset would be prefect. A few loops and a little hook or two and it will be perfect. Enough to carry my phone, id, money, chap stick, a little make up, and odds and ends.

Well, I could go on and on but I want to leave a little for later and my next post when the skirts and boots are on their way to being done.

What do you ladies and gents think of it so far? Like it? Hate it? Do you have any ideas to improve it?

  2. I just happened to stumble over your blog, and this costume is lovely! I especially love that you're planning to incorporate Sailor Moon's goggles. The overall idea of a steampunk Sailor Moon cosplay is great.
    If you don't know them yet, you might like these redesigns by Inkscribble on dA (http://fav.me/d2d5t80), your costume reminded me of them.

    Anyway, I'm really looking forward to the finished cosplay!
    Love,
    Wren
