cosplayprogress no 3 - mayaya jellyfish princess [kuragehime]


this is my new project.
mayaya from kuragehime in this awesome jellyfish-princess-dress.




I tend to make some rough sketches. to comprehend the structure of the garment. 
I realized that this thing will be composed of four layers.

1) the main corset/dress thing
2) frill base
3) jellyfish-shaped frills
4) finishing frills

+ the train

the backside will be closed like a corset. therefore I will have to insert some eyelets at the back. but since the train will hide the back I may simply use a zipper.

convention report - hanami 2013 - con meats festival in ludwigshafen

last weekend from 04.05 - 05.05 was the Hanami.

a bit about the con itself:

this was my third time on this convention. it moved from one location to the other and I prefer the new one. the new building is called "Pfalzbau" and all kinds of cultural events take place here.

I really like the new building, but the prices for the tickets are a bit overboard.
they wanted 23€ for the saturday-ticket! this is a lot for only one day. two years ago it was like 12 € for saturday. the whole weekend was about 27€ or so, which is fair. but 23€ for one day is too much.

the con itself was awesome. met lots of nice people, had so much fun chatting that I forgot to make enough photos :O


please enjoy my small collection :)
