I'm sorry for posting this--I know I already have way too many pictures of this costume up here on my DA. But I just added a crap-ton of beading to this costume for Fanime last weekend and I wanted to show you guys.--it's the beading at the bottom of the sleeves. I didn't have it when I debuted the costume and I just didn't feel like it was complete, so I put in probably twenty more hours of beading (on a bead loom this time) to complete the arm-bands. It ws a push to get them done, and I had to sew one of them on in the car on the way to fanime because I was so behind--even then there's a gap in the beading that I still need to complete.

also, have any of you guys worked with a bead-loom before? I'm having a hard time tying the ends of the string and keeping them from coming undone. All my knots get loose and the beads are falling off =/

This is such an incredible cosplay that you did. I really love how beautiful you look as this character and it looks like a lot of work was put into this cosplay.

You're welcome! Thanks for making them awesome! Seeing your amazing cosplays makes me want to cosplay Yue myself. Thanks for showing me the idea of making cosplays accurate to the real world! Can't believe I didn't think of it before :ohmygod: I'm getting stuck into the research now even though it might take me a while to actually realise it! When I do, I'll have a nice coat for winter! XD
Out of curiosity, how much of a train does your parka have? (if one at all)
Reply
:iconshotzgoboom:
ShotzgoBoom Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2012  Student Filmographer
Oh, awesome! I can't wait to see your costume! :) There's just enough train for it to touch the ground a little, and I wouldn't recommend adding anything longer than that. Even at that very short length, it gets stepped on ALL the time at cons, so you'd be better off without one

:icon23-tiny-wishes:
23-tiny-wishes Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012  Student General Artist
Hah, it should be an excersise in patience as far as beading and things goes! Any pearls of wisdom to offer with regard to the costume in general? :) Yeah, I didn't think a train looked particularly practical as far as Inuit clothing goes (and cons of course! So many people!) so if I do make it with a train it will be super duper short and also I don't want it to get filthy from dragging on the floor all the time. :/ Thanks so much for the help!

ShotzgoBoom Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2012  Student Filmographer
haha, it definitely is. Have you figured out the design you're going to do for your beading?
and my advice is: tie knots at the back often. Then if a section breaks, it'll only take off a few beads. And be prepared. My beading took well over 100 hours to do, so be sure you're ready to make that kind of commitment.

23-tiny-wishes Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2012  Student General Artist
Nope, not yet! Up to my eyeballs in essays and tests currently. Next week when I'm free I want to try to nut out the pattern.
Yeah, my aunt bought a damaged reproduction flapper dress and it was missing so many beads because the knots were tied every 5 or 10 beads. I think I'll end up doing beading in bursts! Thanks so much for the advice!
