and he told me about his giant Ranma 1/2 cosplay group. sadly I am not part of it, but we want to form a second group, and I will join as shampoo!
I love all the funny characters from Ranma 1/2. but I decided to go for shampoo, because I love the way she speaks, and I think her visual appearance is close to my own and fits me well.
first I wanted to realize her amazon outfit. but there is few time till convention, and I have the pattern for a chinadress - so I will go for the maid-outfit.
here see my fabric (stretch satin), and my first self made pattern for this dress. I spend a lot of time re-creating it. I thought, that my last pattern would work well, but its totally messed up. I don't know how it happened to be good-looking.
second try, I made the darts at the back longer and thighten the dress at the sideseams, but of course it came out much to thigh.
third try I think it fits now :D
here I inserted the sleeves.
I have a weakness for sleeves. I always put the first sleeve in the wrong way. I am very proud of the sleeve detailing.
here is the finished apron :D
