Wig~ (Posted 28th January 2010)

My wig arrived! its soo soft and the curls are really bouncy. its a bit lighter than in the picture but never mind, coulda just been my computer screen =] And it's still a lovely colour! So now I just gotta make the katana~

Nearly done. (Posted 22nd January 2010)

We;ve decided to tack the collar of the blazer down to give the appearance of a collarless blazer like the ones they wear in TD! so it should look more accurate. |3 Waiting on my wig now, and I've started making the Katana. It's nothing special, just layers of cardboard and papier mâché and bandages until I can invest in a real wooden Katana lol. I might make a small Tenori no Taiga plushie if I have time~

=3 (Posted 21st January 2010)

Finished editing the blazer, in order to get the blazer to do up the right way (the blazer I got was male intended) we had to kind of scrap the orignal buttons all together so now it seals with velcro and the buttons are purely for decoration. XD
Ordered my wig, too, so I'm waiting for that to arrive. Then I just need to make the katana <3
