worn to: Animagic 2012
Please remind me again WHY I picked this? Ah right, this was plan A for DCM finale last year, but I never found the fabrics. And the producer of Madoka Magica was a guest at Animagic. So I just decided to go fish for fabric. Suprisingly I found all the right colours almost instantly, with the exception of the boot covers. They aren’t exactly the right colour but that’s the closest I’ll get.

Please remind me again WHY I picked this? Ok, lol. Y DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF Q__Q’ I wish they had invited the designer so that I could break his arms… er… I mean ^^” Since I underetsimated the time I had left to sew this I was in stress a lot and a lot of stuff has to be redone properly. The wig has to be cut more, thx to Jeannechan for cutting it for me there ><‘ I guess the skirt and the shoes don’t look so bad. But the armor is a catastrophe out of craft foam, wonderflex, papier mache and God knows what.Almost all of the fabrics were stretchy and my sewing machine was playing crazy with me. er… I better continue this part later when I’m less traumatized about it. I made quite a few progress photos which I will post together with the next ones once I’m on the repairs.
