I love these. The blue cotton ones are very nice, too.. but these are a little bit longer... and they're SILK! :D I will definitely wear these.
I really do feel like I have a lot of leeway with this costume. After all, most scenes with Eboshi happen in the dark.. or in candle-light, etcetc.. so I'm always having to guess at the colors. I watched some of the shots of her in daylight, and they looked very similar to the shots of her in darkness... XP Though, the light blue I chose for the happi is bugging me more than anything. I kind of wish that I went a few shades darker.. but it's a very nice fabric, so I know I will like it when it's finished. The costume wasn't going to be 100% accurate, anyway...
Apparently there's a rumor going around that this costume is going to be kickass or somthing b/c I'm using antique garments from the era of Eboshi, etcetc..
Well, to clear a few things up:
1) Yes, they are antique garments.
2) No, they are not from Eboshi's era. They are muchmuchmuchmuch newer. ^..^
3) XD The kick-ass-ed-ness of the costume is up to the person who sees it. I can't guarantee it'll be great. I can just try my best. After all.. some of the costumes I've been the most proud on have been completely ignored.. and some of the ones I dislike have gotten the most hits. Go figure.
Millenia-- Ugh. HAven't started her back up yet. Maybe today. Still a lot of hand-stitching to do. NEED to make the jacket. Might make the leggings first, though.
Noble- I'm just wistling and waiting for my fur.
Bloodberry- I forgot I need to re-make her harness on the back. It got FUCKING TRASHED at Ushi :( Had to throw half of it away...
I need to find the stuff Celine used on her Zidane costume. Thick gauge aluminum wire.. or somthing like that...
PS- Ringo. Your phone is acting funny, and I haven't been able to get through with you. Please let me know if you'll be over for Easter dinner :(
