Silica Cosplay..?

I have news!! After contemplating months after months, I have finally decided to do this cosplay!! The cosplay I’m doing is Silica from Sword Art Online. I have rough sketches and ideas on how to bring life into this cosplay with the help of Atashi, she is also a blogger, who has truly inspired me. She has been giving me ideas and tips how to make it, and I am truly grateful for it. I know this will be a challenge to make from scratch but I have finally decided that I will do it.

Cosplay Preparation

The top blazer and the bottom blazer are a true red colour, which a brighter shade of red compared to the anime. I couldn’t find poplin in the shade of true red so I went with tomato:  http://www.lincraft.com.au/polypop-1. I purchased 3.5 metres of poplin. I also purchased a pair of Ansell white gloves for $ 1:50, which have also added into the dye bath.

I made a red halter top a few years ago, unfortunately I do not have pictures of the progress but, I will be dying this with Rit Liquid Dye “BLACK”

UPDATE: Dying the dark coloured red into true red, wasn’t really a success, it was tad brighter but was not the colour I was looking for.

    Anime: Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso

    Hey guys, how are we all…? I hope you guys are having a fantastic New Years! I would to share with you guys my thoughts, on this new anime/manga that I’ve started watching/reading. It’s just simply beautiful. It’s called Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso -(Your Lie In April)

    It’s about a young pianist called Arima Kousei, some people will refer to him as a “Human Metronome” Kousei plays the piano with perfection, but above all he plays to the score,  as a desire to make his mother happy. But after his mother passes away, Kousei has  a mental breakdown causing him to not be able to hear the sound of the piano. Until one day everything changes for him…I’m gonna stop here for now.

    Arima Kousei

    You guys must be thinking why on earth would you like a manga/anime like that, but the thing is, it gives me mixed emotions or as I like to call it “feels”. I can’t really explain why I like it, cause if I did, there would be a lot of spoilers! It’s just simply beautiful and inspiring!

    One the protagonist in the anime/manga named Miyazono Kaori, she is like guiding light for Kousei, but I fear that the worst is about to come.. and I am completely and utterly not okay, with what is gonna happen!  It makes me cry every time I think of it.

    If you guys haven’t watched and red it, I recommend you guys do!
