Update! (Posted 5th January 2011)
Righto, the hairsticks that my friend Kristen made for me have turned up in the post and they are so freaking beautiful. She did an absolutely stunning job, the earrings and all three necklaces are also complete. The Make up is also perfected but my camera is deciding to turn off each time I take a photo....the little sod. Eventually if I can get the thing to work there will be pictures of the make up and jewellery for progress. I got the swatch for the pleather back and it's perfect! And at only £5.25 a metre and cheap shipping it's a bargain! The fur swatch is also gorgeous and oh so pettable. A little expensive but worth the money.
Working on altering the pattern for the skirt at the moment before working on it, I'll make a prototype version first to check the shape and then we'll get on with it. When I can get photos up I will so keep an eye out!
Till next time,
Stage one: Ladies and Gents! Hold on tight to my diminishing sanity! (Posted 11th December 2010)
Right then, Lulu has been started! It's official, we are in progress. My wig is done and my lovely friend Kristen is making the hairsticks for me as a christmas present! That saves me a job at least, made two out of the three necklaces, the pearl one and the red and black one. I can see the larger purple one giving me cause to curse in very creative ways.
I've sent off for a swatch of pleather for Lulu's skirt and sleeves, if it comes back and I like it then I shall go ahead and make the order for the fabric I need. The next job will be belts..lots and lots of belts, that's going to be fun...
That's about all the progress for now! I hope to be adding some more details up soon and keep your eyes peeled for progress photos, including a wig and make up test! For now, ciao!
