MCM Expo October 2010 (Posted 30th November 2010)
WOW, as soon as Arte walked into the expo hall, someone wanted her photo :D I was pretty chuffed. They said they are doing Hazaki in May. So I will have to look out for them.
I was shocked that she was recognised 10 times, yes I counted. That was people actually saying to her you're Arte or, you're from Moon Phase.
One dude was awesome and was really excited to be seeing her. I didn't have my scythe at the time as I'd put it back in the hotel for a bit. I went to get it to take some dusk photos and the dude was waiting for her tube. He grabbed her for some more photos.
I didn't want to take the wig off =O - Did I just admit that? me.. pink?
Ohhhhh She even found a little friend to play with her in the evening :D
SHOESSSSS (Posted 24th October 2010)
Okay, so my quest for Arte shoes began many months ago..
Shawl and tester (Posted 20th October 2010)
A tried to make the shawl on Monday night, but my mind went blank and I tried again last night. I managed to do it quite easy. It's not the best of sewing but I like it. I sewed the 'bib' - I think it has a fancy name but can't think.
I've been trying toget some school shoes exact style of Arte, but I've had no luck to get my size(even though i'm a 4).. So I'mgoing to have to get some dolly shoes instead :( ahwell, serves me right - should have ordered some when I saw them.
Socks and Dress.. (Posted 14th October 2010)
I finished the dress today, I actually like it :) Ohh and I found an old petticoat which I took in a bit that works well. Saves making one - yays.
Finally the sewing started. (Posted 5th October 2010)
expo is what 23days away or something like that... i thought i better stop putting it off and start the sewings. I just need to sew on the sleeves for her dress and take it up a bit, once i tried it on with petticoat. Ordered some socks, but the shoes I wanted were out of stock... might be shoe less at this rate..... oops.
Ears.. (Posted 22nd September 2010)
I ripped off the other ears I made back 2008 and made some new ones. There are three (or more) designs in the anime/manga, so I've made them in between the different designs. I hope they look okays *eek*, and hide the top of the wig.
So I took a few photos on my webcam.
Wig cutting.. (Posted 9th September 2010)
the wig arrived a friday. Today I attempted to cut some little bits.
Wig sent.. (Posted 26th August 2010)
Note to self..
WIG: has been dispatched. Just hope it's as good when it arrives.
scythe finished (Posted 24th August 2010)
Painted the scythe this morning it between dying my hair. I must say I had more luck with the painting. lol
Remaking.. (Posted 23rd August 2010)
A week or so ago I decided 90% of the cosplays I wanted to do for October.
So, Arte is one of them as long as I can make it in time.
A few years back I started but never finished Arte, I have scrapped the dress I started, wig, ears and scythe and am starting over.
WIG - Ordered a new wig, and hopfully when it arrives it's as awesome as it looks on screen. Just the waiting game for that....
