Journal

New photos (Posted 30th July 2012)

the same thing but with my new wig. and another halo.
one day I will be happy with the photos and this costume. I know i have said that a million times but one day I will.

must remember some hair infront of ears. I did one side and forgot the photo would be taken from the other side and didn't think before we took them. I then got OIL from the chainsaw all over the dress.... so yeah..... on goes the VANISH spray and into the wash it goes... Done it twice now and I don't think it's going to come out. It's a lot better, luckily if you remember it was cheap thin poly cotton and so hopfully i can get some more.

BUM HOLESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS ... just uploading the photos - I FORGOT THE PLASTER!!!!!!!! I PUT EVERYTHING ON THE BED TO PUT ON AND FORGOT IT!!!! AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Oh well, i will find or dig myself a large hole to get into and of coarse make a neat pile of monica's clothes ... you know the scene i'm on about ;D

new wig... (Posted 20th July 2012)

new wig is on it's wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy!! I went for the second one in the journal below. taken me a while to decide, I actually think the two wigs are the same colour one with a fringe but we will see when it turns up. As long as it's better than the ones I used before.
I will one day be happy with the costume. I really need to make the halo and wings again, I dunno..........

revamping again (Posted 17th April 2012)

I was never happy with this.. firstly I want a proper wig.. I'm thinking this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/A3535-New-Short-Orange-Brown-Cosplay-Party-Wig...
OR
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/A1744-New-Short-Orange-Brown-Cosplay-Party-Wig...
although can you part these wigs? :/ I just like that colour. What do you think?

My nephew randomly walked into my living room carrying my spade.. the one I used way way back years ago that I thought was lost forever.

I want to revamp this by Halloween. Maybe for October Expo... maybe not. Not sure yet.

Remake Halo - card one fall apart. Wanted it to look like Monica made the halo, but card just bends. what else could I try?

I will finally remake the wigs if my idea works, if not I will just keep them, because I like them they just aren't what I first imagened. Actually I might just paint the black to light grey. Might be easier.

new bits.. (Posted 20th July 2011)

I have covered the chocker in pink fabric (left over from the dress). Paint would just crack.
I have made a new halo out of yellow card. The top part of the wings needs to be white/silver, but i really don't want to make them again as I like them. So, for now instead I put some white feathers into the current 'wings'..

Hoping to take a decent photo later.

edit: added photo

I won (Posted 11th July 2011)

YAYs, I won the socks. They came this morning.

Orders... (Posted 5th July 2011)

I am 'bidding' on some socks, they are light-ish grey and pink.. it's the nearest i can find anywhere, i think they will be ok. fingers crossed for winning the bid....................... fnishes tomorrow.
I will need to cut them shorter.

REMAKING ... for the ... third? time (Posted 27th June 2011)

I'm now remaking this to the colour scheme in the special edition book. I cut a wig and sewed the new dress.

Keeping converse, skull belt and will be adating the collar and halo.
Need to get the right colour socks.

Skulls painted (Posted 25th October 2010)

At the weekend I finished covering the poly with green stuff, then painted them white. I then went over the nose holes and teeth lines in marker pen and painted the eye holes black.

I then stapled the skulls to some black cording.

Converse update.. (Posted 22nd October 2010)

I HAVE CONVERSE!! Phewww. We lost a lot of biddings, so I bought some for £24 instead.. Picked them up from the post office today - was a bit worried they wouldn't arrive.

Collar (Posted 21st October 2010)

my sister had an old belt that she was getting rid off, i grabbed it.
I cut it to the length and width I wanted.
Added an eyelet.
Then cut holes and added the studs. They are actually 'self cover buttons' without the backs.

Halo (Posted 21st October 2010)

I remade my halo, with some wire and tin foil..

Skulls.. (Posted 13th October 2010)

I started the remake of the skulls last week.
I cut and dented some polystrene half egg shapes into skull shapes, I am covering them in Green Stuff. Although I left them at my partners and won't get to finish them until the weekend. Eeks.
I'm currently bidding on some Converse, so hopefully I win them in times.

CHANGE OF PLAN (Posted 26th August 2010)

I decided to remake the costume into the colours that are in the 'Special Ed' So,pink dress, gold halo etc
Then I will decide which I like better. Either way I get to dig a hole and get nakkie... It's all good.
We will see .....

EDIT:
NEVER MIND, I'm sticking with the cover art...

16 June 2010. (Posted 16th June 2010)

Cut off a LOT of hair from my wig. Gave it a brush. It needs washing to get the 'crease' out - my fail for stuffing it into a box.
