Thank you my child.You can have a raise in pocket money for that.I think it is looking like FFX Jecht on Friday now for Kitacon,then Dissidia Jecht on Saturday and Braska Sunday.The only way to do Braska on Friday is if I paint on Jecht's beard the next day but that may look a bit crap.

To-Do List

glue silver to the sides of the strip that sticks up from the headband MediumPlanned
add back piece to the staff headMediumPlanned
Add red leaves to bottom of robesMediumPlanned

Journal

Improvements fort eh art festival (Posted 1st March 2010)

For this festival I added some silver edging to the blue headband,but couldn't sew it to the top middle strip as it was attached to the thick plume at the back.I bought a blue glass bead and glued it to the centre of the headband,and I added the symbols of the aeons to the back of the plume.These were drawn with a wide nibbed caligraphy pen onto paper I cut into circles and then glued to the plume.The end piece was some stiff card again glued.The plume was unstitched from the other 2 sticky up bits to look more like the original hat,I managed to get them to stick up without the support by adding extra glue.

What I still need to do is glue silver fabric to the middle part of the headband that sticks up,add leaves to the bottom of the robes so they drag along the ground,and construct a back to the staff's head
