handsewing is a long, thankless struggle... (Posted 14th October 2009)
meh, my hands are sore and i'm bored of handsewing already and when i sleep i dream of my future sewing machine...If i ever get it...i'm trying not to run to my nans everytime i get to this point. she has a sewing machine, but if i take the costume there she'll end up doing most of the work! this time is the same as my perona cosplay, though i actually have sewing patterns for this. the top half is nearly complete (darn hems) and the bottom half in the works. I kinda left it to the last minute...eep! I'm still waiting for the wig as well. i have a back up wig, but it needs styling and some long wefts which i'll have to sew/glue in. If the wig doesn't arrive by the end of this week, i'll go to sally's and see what wefts they have.
