Sheryl Nome (official art) WIP

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 19, 2014, 10:53 AM
Free Icon: Heart Bubble by Vocalization A new cosplay project means a new journal, so here it is... FINALLY!
I know it has been awhile since the last one but I'm grateful that you kept on supporting me, here and on my cospage. Thank you very much ♡

My latest cosplay was Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier (yes, once again) but this time I chose one of my favourite versions from the official arts. Actually, seems like not many people even know this illustration ahah I made this costume especially for a con, Central Comics Fest, to which I was invited to give a cosplay workshop and to be one of the judges for Eurocosplay 2014 Portugal qualifying round. At first, I was planning to do something from TERA but then I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to finish it on time, since I was on finals season at college. So, I decided to let that project on-hold and work on this simple and comfy, yet pretty detailed, cosplay instead. Enough of speeches, let me share the WIP:

As you can see, I even made the jewelry for this cosplay: bracelet, necklace, crystal hair extensions and headpiece. I guess that was probably what took me more time! As for the dress, I've worked non-stop on it for 2 days after my finals (excluding the patterning and fabrics cut that were made prior) and I was so relieved that I could finish this on time! I wasn't really confident about my costume at first but in the end I like how it looks and I need to say that I really love the train of the dress! The shoes were bought and heavily modified in order to look similar to the reference. About the microphone, I've only made the fur ball and the velvet ribbon, since it was commissioned to a talented portuguese costume/prop maker and good friend of mine, manabuutena (: Check out her page too [link]

Here is the final result:

Getting this chance to thank the organization for inviting me to be there again, to congratulate not only the chosen Eurocosplay representative but all the contestants because they surely were amazing (still, good luck for the finals to both AnaIsabelaSantos and KonCookie) and also to thank Carancerth for coming here as a guest, being a co-judge and making the cosplay workshop with me^^
