Hello,I would be extremely thankfull if you could tell me how did you create Kiryuin Satsuki's dress, because I am new to cosplaying and I decided to try and cosplay this character, but I want to create the costume by myself. So if you could show the process of recreating it and the matereals which were used for it I would be very thankfull.

Hey dear! I have answered a few questions about the dress, e.g. on the pattern: here, or some more in our ask box tag    and some progress pics in the progress tag   where you could also find some helpful stuff.

Also, I’ve already made a tutorial on Satsuki’s boot covers, you can find it here

As for materials, from what I remember:

Dress:

White cotton/polyester fabric for the main part - ~3.5m (note on fabric: not shiny, no stretch, sturdy enough to hold the pleating on the skirt)

1 white unpartable invisible zipper, ~15 cm (mine is hidden in the side seam)

Fabric for the golden pattern - .0.5m (at most)

Blue fabric for the hand band - ~30cm (mine’s lacque, could go with many other options)

Small shoulder pads

Collar:

Same white fabric from the dress

Fliseline to strenghten the standing part of the collar - 10-20cm

Blue cotton for the kerchief and bias tape - 0.5m (alternatively, buy pre-made bias tape if you don’t want to make it, I prefered making it myself so it’ll be exactly the same collor as the kerchief)

1 blue zipper for the collar, preferably partable

Material for the eyes (yellow, orange, red) - fake leather, lacque or smth similar

For the epoulettes: cardboard, golden fabric, tassle fringe and cord

I’ve covered the boots in the tutorial, so that’s it, if I haven’t forgotten anyting.

Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to make a full tutorial for the dress, nor did I take enough photos of the process to do that. If you are completely new to sewing, I would strongly recommend to read up on it (pattern making, processing, what not) and find some sewing tutorials on youtube. Ideally, find someone who could show you the basics in person (family, friends, sewing classes). There are a lot of materials you could find and many talented people who explain all of this stuff far better than I possibly could.

Wish you all the best with your cosplay!





spotthetitan asked:
Hi! Apologies if this has been answered but can I ask what fabric you used for your Ryuko cosplay? Is it a polyester fabric? Regards.

Hey :) Mine is not fully polyester, probably a polyester+cotton mix, from what it feels like. 100% polyester fabric would probably be too shiny and not sturdy enough, as far as I remember what 100% polyester looks like.





loudernownico asked:
Your boot cover tutorial for the Satsuki cosplay has been REALLY helpful for mine! So thank you for that. I'm around the part where I'm ordering her wig. Where did you get yours from? Or any online stores you know I can use since I know you guys aren't in the states.

Hey! Very glad you found it helpful, seriously :) We’re in China right now so I got mine from Chinese taobao. As far as shipping to US goes, I think you’d better go with ebay. Personally, I like a shop named cosplay-dna, they usually have lots of nice long wigs in stock. You can try to look them up on ebay.

Good luck with you cosplay!

Umineko no naku koro ni

Beatrice, Lambdadelta and Battler cosplays & photos by both of us :3

Virgilia by Ptishon

Aaaah, all the Umineko feels today… the visual novel is something very very close to perfection in my eyes. It has unbelievably realistic and interesting characters, and story which is hard to let go of once one started to read. When, in 2010, we started to cosplay Umineko, we felt very much alone because everyone else watched the anime and was puzzled when we told about existence of the VN. We didn’t find many people to talk to and were always happy to find yet another person who has, too, read the novel. Now, almost four years later, the tumblr tag is alive and well and there are so many people who we can share the thoughts with! ;A; <3 

We still have thousand of ideas for photos and I m also still happy to see people are cosplaying Umineko <3

You remember that tweet Ryukishi made about Shannon and Kanon holding Battler down while Beato steals a kiss from him? They’re having so much fun!!
Found on twitter!!!

Truth of Yasu revealed in a manga article of Ep8

Beware of major major MAJOR spoilers below the cut!

Translated by hagaruma on AnimeSuki. Also we get the confirmation that Yasuda Sayo is her real name, yayyy. As well as certain things she’d inherited from Kinzo which were never dealt with in the original VN…

I can’t say I really like this. Umineko was set up wonderfully, and this is kinda… I mean, I get it. But I think it still could have been done better.
