first test... basic kimono base done!



Costume Information

Cost : kimono materials were cheap :D
Time Taken : under 4 days

hinoto is awesome. X is awesome.
that is all you need to know

29.11.09 - wig will not be quiet as epic as it should be as, no time to fix the heavy pretzle-ish back piece so its not weighing me down too much!
kimono is very simple, its all going to be improved in the future... but not bad for under 4 days work XD

30.11.09 - pictures up asap!
had a great time at the ball =) even though i fell over *gracefully* as I left the venue haha
I definitely want to re-do the character soon =]

yups silicon is very very useful for wig styling if you need some extreme bits like high lift spikes or making bows XD
as long as you get the clear stuff and spread it thin enough it keeps more elastic so doesn't look too bad~ I'm not doing a brilliant job of explaining here XD

kimono done... pretty much! (Posted 26th November 2009)

bow and obi were finished tonight... bottom of the kimono has been bondawebbed to make it a little neater and I'm going to see about getting some bells tomorrow to add here and there =]

my wig however has NOT turned up yet. think customs are being an arse over it... and very slow at processing it. I'll be very disappointed if it doesn't come by saturday morning =[ kinda ruins the plans if it doesn't come. argh

wig stuff (Posted 20th November 2009)

....currently getting a bit worried that the wig and extensions to do this won't arrive in time *panic* hopefully the postal service will prove me wrong for once however... and hopefully it won't arrive the day before!!
