Costume Information

...i'm such a bebop nerd....
I once worked out i'm 7 years older then faye XD.... but i love her so much and I always secretly cheered for faye to get together with spike, even though she's too independent to rely on anyone.

Right well this one is staying in progress for a bit! Wig is all done, shoes are fabulous and everything but the actual costume is a mess, which is mainly my own fault. Basically due to finishing stuff for my uni degree my final hand in was on the monday prior to expo, so I really didn't have time to get too much done on the costume. Then I ended up going away for 2 days. So I had to rush out the outfit in around a day max (including reworking my first pattern draft as I messed up!), as such it was really not good. but now I know how to fix it, improve it and make it ten times better :) so onwards we go~

The shoes seem a good match to the reference art. Think this is going to be a great costume... but you will be pretty busy to get it completed before expo!

I'm SO happy you made the effort to get the widow's peak in the wig, so very few people do!

Saw you hanging around the cosplay desk everytime I turned up there, was trying really hard to remember who you were because the face was too familiar, sorry I couldn't remember until I got home and it clicked to me :(

Ah, I LOVE it.
Specially the widows peak.
The hair is always the sign of a good Faye cosplay, and you did it perfectly.
Any tips on making the widows peak would be great! ^-^;

zippadee yeah (Posted 15th May 2010)

well wig and shoes arrived! yay
shoes are excellent, they do kill my feet after about 4 hours though which isn't so good, and i'm starting to work on the wig.

only thing is i still need to pick up more pvc or something suitable for the main outfit <_< >_> and my final ever uni deadline for this degree has been moved forward so now I might have uh, a day to actually make the whole outfit pretty much! :(
hoping I can get it all done, if i completely blitz my uni work this weekend then i might be able to spend a few more evenings working on it!

insane ideas (Posted 29th April 2010)

well yay! finally going to get her underway!

ordered the wig to work with which will hopefully arrive in time If it doesn't I will actually be distraught... I have a bit of yellow pvc sitting about which I'm going to start testing with and I'll pick up some more if it seems to be working :)
elastic has been ordered to make the braces and I've ordered some shoes which are pretty much ideal (once I do a tiny bit of adjusting)

can't wait :>
