Advent Children Tifa | Fit Test Done!

Okay, so AX is kinda soon–and I’m kinda starting to freak out a bit…kinda, a little….maybe a lot >^<! I keep reminding myself that I’m actually making excellent progress on my girl Tifa, and to be honest I’m doing much better then I usually do!20150623_231031Finished the fitting yesterday, and actually really pleased with how it turned out. Fitting for a large bust has its own challenges, but on a random note–that is the best fit armhole I have ever made *O*. I was debating on cutting out all my final pattern pieces yesterday but realized that it would only lead to disaster as I was pretty damn tired–so I held off until tonight!20150623_231941I have two different vinyl/pleathers that I will be using. One is a heavy weight that I plan on using for her top, and the other one is a lot more supple that I plan on using for everything on bottom. I’m flip flopping on lining everything in a black fabric, because in the movie her butt cape doesn’t actually look like leather, but IDK. Decisions Decisions @3@.

XOXO, AX in 8 days (can I start panicking yet?!)


Advent Children Tifa | Mockup Done!

FInished the main mock-up pieces for my AC Tifa last night! Going into major fit mode tonight, AND if I’m being super duper on top of things hoping to cut in my hero fabric! HUZZAH!  Decided to test it all with the wig on ^O^.20150623_013701The top on Tifa is making me crack up because I used the pattern I drafted for Baby Doll, and I have a smaller chest when I’m Baby Doll (a.k.a. I am stuffed SO MUCH RIGHT NOW FOR TIFA), so it’s pulling the darts in STRANGE WAYS that my flat chested self doesn’t quite know how to deal with.

Never mind, Never give up and NEVER SURRENDER. 9 days to AX!

Final Fantasy VII | Tifa Assemble!

Good Morning guys!

I finally got all the pieces I ordered in the mail for Tifa on Friday night, and I couldn’t resist throwing everything on. In a sense a lot of this costume is going to be modifications of existing clothing–which is great because I can focus on sewing Advent Children Tifa from scratch then! /HUZZAH/! Anyway to the test run!20150620_005752AND IT LOOKS LIKE ITS GETTING THERE ^O^! This time around I absolutely love the red gloves (such a better color then my previous ones) and the arm sleeves are actually pretty comfortable! The gloves are gonna get the green marble things glued on, and then I’ve got to get wraps for the wrists but they’re pretty much done! The suspenders need to be modified and I’ll be painting the boots a slightly brighter shade of red. I do think I’ll be making some minor modifications to the fit of the crop top and skirt :3.

10 Days to AX!! Let’s do this!
