It's Isis again. Remember a few days ago, I was asking for tips and such, because I had an idea in my head??
It's pretty much gone now. I'm not too terribly skilled with a sewing machine, so something really complicated would be too much for me to make before Oni-con (which is the weekend of the 21st of Oct.)
But I've been reading through memories, and looking at the different styles of Loli, so I have a new question...
Is Waloli a no-no for plus-size girls?? as in really big plus-size girls?? I'm not ashamed to say my weight is pretty hefty, despite my hourglass figure.
See in my anime club we cosplay, and I'm offically designated Kimono and hakama maker. While I may not be able to make a nicely fitted top that goes with my curves and still looks good, I can make a kimono top with absolutely no problem, coupled with pour_me_coffee
's fabulous flared skirt tutorial, I seriously think I could pull off making a Waloli outfit. The problem is, I'm extremely well endowed for a woman, and when I make kimono's for myself, I have a problem with keeping them closed around the clevage line, although I think with a few hidden inner ties and maybe some safety pins, I can avoid that altogether. The faked obi won't be hard to make, but keeping it from rolling down will be hard.. (lots of interfacing, maybe?)
I really liked this one that I found in the guide in memories here
and was thinking of mimicing the style in black as my base and hot pink for my trim (anyone know how to make those flowers around the bottom?), with a self-made hot pink petticoat. Worn with black boots (as is shown on the webpage link) I may have to make my own little bag with the extra pink fabric, as I don't have one that would match.
Sooooo... Good idea, or bad idea?? I don't want to post pictures of it when I'm done and have it end up in the "Bad Loli" Hall of Shame. (cause that would suck)
