little bits now (Posted 18th October 2010)

just an little update on my laughing octopus

It going great all I have to do more is to get the arms to the lentgh I would like and paint that. An little more work on the boby suit I would have it all do be more but I been helping people get there cosplay finish but it be fun I just so lucky Im of an week be for expo ^o^

this is the part of it I hate T_T (Posted 28th July 2010)

I don't like this part of making an cosplay measuring and taking the time to make sure that how you going to do it will be the best way and this is what I get tyed with as I would like to jump in and start on the big stuff but has learn in the bast Not to do that any one can tell me that T_T

the boby suit is getting there getting more detail wish I would have gone with black but on well my confident about my weight loss and going swimmer 3 month before the event to trim up

and is working on the head think next yay

Boby suit came (Posted 27th June 2010)

As Im cosplay shoping next week I hope to get everthing together to start instead of making it bit by bit and sorting me room out to see what I have left over from my fail try so I will know for sure what I will need. the boby suit came today and it was ok after I sort the little large place on the suit Im sure it will be find ^^:::: lol

I hope As Im not going away with family this year I can at lest get some work do in the 2 weeks without the pain of it allllll till next journal

Let the remake begin (Posted 9th June 2010)

after an fail try on this cosplay Im now ready to start again and I doing right this time around

I order an boby suit which hoply will be here next week and make an start on that Iv also found someting which would be ten times better to do the head peacse.

also Im happy about my wieght loss and feel an little more able to do it ^_^

so the time line on this cosplay is 2 _3 months like I will be of work in the 6 weeks holidays
